james brown. i used this song at my wedding during my bouquet toss. i love this song. it makes me feel good. it brings a smile to my face. and you know what? i've had a good day. now, this might not be a good saturday to you but to me it was great.
so, i'm going to tell you about it. i have not put on any makeup. all day. not that you really care but you're reading my blog so you'll have to deal with my stories as they come. plus, it's a birthday party blog break bc my next post will be about james' whale party but you can get a peek at the photos on andrea's blog. anyway back to my day - i woke up next to my favorite boys.
start the car,
31 1/2 inches tall
7 teeth and all smiles
i started to take monthly pictures but i made a critical mistake - i decided that they had to be in the same position which required me to rearrange my dining room and wait for the light to be just right so that the french doors didn't produce a ton of shadows. i only made it through 6 months and am regretting it today but i still couldn't resist taking one more for his year to see how much james has grown.
12 lbs. 7 oz.
16 lbs. 1 oz.
20 lbs. 6 oz.
23 lbs. 5 oz.
i CANNOT believe that my son is 1 year and 5 days old! i was pregnant for what seemed like f--o-r-e-v-e-r and now the past year has flown by in what seems like a blink of an eye. i've loved every single minute of it and i'm looking forward to all the fun years ahead.
of course james will have several birthday celebrations but his whale party was the big one. the one that i spent months planning. the one that included family and his 30 closest friends. it was THE big day!! even the 112+ degree heat index didn't stop us from having a good time.
above is the invitation that i had designed just for james on etsy. i love how it turned out and think it had a good representation to the bright colored fun that lay ahead. i will have more posts on his birthday as i upload pictures and when i get them from andrea, who was kind enough to come and
i love planning parties and i loved planning this one. i'm already thinking up my "theme" for next years big bash. james' bash, of course.....even though i'll be the big 3-0.
