number four turns one

As of this week, we have a 6-year-old, a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a 1-year-old!  Our home is not lacking in noise or energy.  It’s a party all day every day! 🙂

We celebrated Shepherd’s first birthday with a little family get-together at home.

He is a well-loved little man…

Shepherd & Grandma

Shepherd & Mama

He was a little confused by everyone singing to him!

I made a grain-free banana chocolate chip birthday cake...


...with lots of whipped cream 🙂


I love my family!


Little man playing with some of his new toys...


...and graciously sharing with his big brother 🙂


I can't get enough of his scrunchy-nose grin!


We love you, sweet Shepherd!

      We’ve given him so much attention with the scrunchy nose that he’s doing it constantly now! And I still can’t get enough of it. 🙂

    Happy Birthday Shepherd. I can’t believe he is one already time flies. I love your natural hair color, it looks very good on you.

      I know, I can’t believe he’s one. The time flies by faster with each kid, I think! Thanks for the compliment…I’m still getting used to my natural color, but I *think* I’m liking it. 🙂

      You’re welcome, Grandma! I don’t take pictures with my real camera very often anymore, so I try to post them here when I do! Looking forward to seeing you guys soon. Love you!
