the birthday boy

Wow. 
It is hard to believe that today I can say I have a one year old.
Yesterday was Levi's birthday.
His big day brought a lot of emotions with it,
but I can't tell you how special it was to celebrate my sweet boy's life.
What a gift.

Our friend Ian took pictures of Levi eating his cake and opening presents.
Here is a little peek.
I'll post more pictures and details from the party soon.

Last night Joel and I got all his vehicles and tractors out of the boxes for him.
Our little man was very spoiled yesterday.
When he woke up they were all lined up on the coffee table.
He was pretty excited.
Today we are going to spend lots of time playing and relaxing.
It has been a crazy few weeks and we are tired!

I have so much still to post...
New Years Day (our last Christmas)
Levi's birthday
and some goals I have for the New Year.

How is it 2011 already?
Happy New Year (just a little late!)

Happy Birthday little Levi, we were thinking of you yesterday all the way over here in Ireland as we celebrated our little girl's birthday. Hope you enjoyed your cake and have lots of fun with your tractors!

How sweet, it looks like he is enjoying all of his new toys:)
I don't know how were going to do it (with space) once Adrienne's birthday is in march since she already has so many toys from Christmas!

Happy Birthday, Levi!!!

I knew this post was going to be emotional to read. I've been eagerly awaiting Levi's 1st, but also feeling sad and torn at the same time {and I do feel bad for that}.

These pictures look SO good! I love the one of you guys with him at the high chair - so adorable.

Happy 1 year to you all!!

God bless your beautiful little Levi! God bless your beautiful little family! God love your beautiful little Cora!!!

Jess you have such a wonderful spirit about you. You write so often of God's grace and on this the day you get to say you have a one year old little boy, I just wanted to acknowledge the Grace of God I see in your beautiful spirit. Coming to your blog and reading your carefully chosen and poetic words is a respite from my day. I am so happy for you today.

God bless you!

My 10 1/2 month old has those same pj's Levi is wearing in the pic. So cute!

Random question, what kind of a camera do you use? Your pictures are always SO great! I'm horrible at taking pictures...my son always moves so much, he ends up blurry all the time!
