Kyler is 1!!

I can't believe that my baby is 1! Time has just flown by. He is so fun to have around. I could name a million things about him that I just adore but I would have to say my top favs are..... His smile, His laugh, and the fact that he is a Mamma's boy! Here are his 1 year stats.....We had a baseball themed birthday party for him on Saturday. It was great to have the family come. Addy and Dawson were so excited, you would have thought it was their birthdays. I decided to involve the kids with some of the projects which was great. They felt involved and it really helped to make the day about Ky. I sent out little personalized baseball themed invites which I made.

The kids first project was to make a sign for the front door, with the help of Nana of course. I think they did a great job!

The concessions consisted of ball park favorites. Hot dogs, chili cheese dogs, nachos, pretzels, cracker jacks, popcorn, peanuts, chips, and drinks. The second project for the kids was the concession sign.

Kyler enjoying the concessions, well the warm pretzels,chips and licorice. Real healthy I know, but I figure anything goes on your birthday.
For the first time ever I decided to decorate a cake instead of just buying one. I am not going to lie, I was stressed. However with the support and help of my mom I think they turned out GREAT!
Ky before......
Ky after.
I wish the weather would have been better. We did have some activities planned but the weather didn't really cooperate the whole time. It was nice for a while and Ky went and showed off his batting skills!

The party turned out really well. It was a lot of fun. I still can't believe that he is 1! I am so grateful that he is a part of our family. Happy Birthday our little Ky man!

What a cute birthday! I'm stealing some of your ideas for a party for Owen that I'll have someday. Someday I'll do something like that... probably not in time for this birthday, though. Kyler is such a cutie! Looks like he had a great time!
