Elias Turns ONE!

This one is my favorite. It sums up his "preciousness!"
On January 4, our sweet little boy turned 1! We had a quiet little celebration at home and I baked our traditional "birthday cupcake" cake! Wyatt INSISTED on EVERYONE wearing a birthday hat...a hat he himself picked out:) Here are some photos of Eli's BIG day:)

Eli has truly become a JOY!
to walk
to eat
take walks outside
clap his "feet"
play with wyatt
jump up and down in his bed
"fake" cough
to smile
to be hugged and kissed
I love you more than you could possibly know, my sweet, precious baby! Your smile everyday is breath-taking and makes it all worth while...You are a blessing from God and I am beyond thankful that He blessed us with you! Nothing brings me more JOY than being the mother of my two boys!
Love, Momma

Precious memories and photos Rachel! What a year of wonder it is to witness. As Gabriel is almost three, I am realizing each year has its special things about it.
Happy birthday little Elias!
