Wow, I can't even begin to think about how FAST this past year has gone by and it amazes me that our little baby Sloan is already One year old! This post is dedicated completely to the Swoanie-balloanie! Here's to a walk down memory lane!

Sloan five hours old:

One day old:

Three days old:



Six weeks old and smiling!

Two months:


Three months:

Four months:

Five months:

Six months:



Seven months, Cinco De Mayo!



Eight months:


Nine months:





Ten months:

Eleven months:

One Year!!! What a sport! Even after a whole two days of not feeling so great (he caught The Croup on his birthday:( ) he still was so happy and ready to eat his first cupcake!


My family singing the "Happy Birthday" song!




We have been extremely blessed to have this sweet, delightful, peaceful, beautiful little boy in our lives! Keep posted for an official one-year-old photo sitting with him when he feels better, until then happy birthday to our Sloan!

Well sloan, here's to you buddy, and I hope to stalk you for many years to come. I would get you a one-sie that read "My friends think I'm RAD", but I wouldn't want to step on anyones creative little toes. Stay radical badical.

What a cute little boy!!! He's going to enjoy seeing all of his pictures when he get's older. I know that I did. I have featured you and your pictures for my inspirational Sunday. I scout for photographers that take amazing pictures like you and put them on Sundays for the brides that read my blog. What better way to get ideas, admire great work, and know what kind of shots you want your photographer to do . If you are interested it should be up in about a half hour. Have a great day!

A few weeks ago we spent the day at the San Diego Zoo with our rad photog friends, the Kaiser family! Its always a good time hanging with these peeps, especially because our kids have so much fun when they're together!



Hudson and Grace are BFF!








Sloan does this thing where he tries to stick his fingers in every person's mouth he comes close to...I guess this ape was no exception!


My favorite shot of the day!

Jasper has the biggest and best smile I have ever seen on a kid! Believe it or not, this is just his half smile!


Peek-a-boo in the photo booths, it was pretty funny!
