the baby is now 1

my baby boy turned 1 on monday. ACK. he’s growing up! {and yes, he’s a 10/10/10 baby :} honestly, he’s been a tough baby. so although i am sad to see him turn 1, i am also a bit relieved to have that first year done. he is my little cutie! i have to show off his GORGEOUS blue eyes and then i’ll share a snippet of his small birthday party.

i promise you, this is an unedited photo. his eyes are seriously that blue. crazy huh? {ok, so i added the watermark, but other than that…untouched} i have blue eyes, but mine don’t look anything like those ocean blue gems up there. every time i take him somewhere, i get all kinds of comments on his stunning blue eyes. i just glow in motherly pride :)

anyways, i’ll stop boring you with photos of my children because this is a craft blog and all.

i have to admit, i am THE WORST Cake Froster E.V.E.R. so please do not mock my attempt at frosting a chocolate cake :) but note the cute little flag i cut out with my Silhouette. {which btw did you hear about the Cameo that’s coming out?? i am SOSOSOSO excited to get my hands on one!}

and this is the cupcake that the little guy got to devour….which in reality turned into a poking session….. and finished with him {so kindly} letting his daddy lick his fingers clean for him! {it was really cute!}

-yep, you guessed it. i used my Silhouette to cut out the funky cupcake wrapper and cupcake flag. i {heart} my silhouette!

    Beautiful! My baby just turned 2 last week. He was a really tough baby too- and getting past that first year felt like a major achievement- so I’m giving you a congratulations for doing it! I hope yours is like mine and turns into the happiest, sweetest toddler in the world (at least most of the time!)

    Happy Birthday to a Beautiful Boy! I remember a poem my grandma used to recite to me. The first line? “Blue eye, true eye, never speak or tell a lie.” CUTE cupcake wrapper!

    I was totally thinking…eek, too much photoshopping on the eyes. But they are straight out of the camera!? He’s gonna be a heartbreaker!

    I turned 30 on 10-10-10. So happy to share the day with your cute boy. If you don’t mind arranged marriages I’ve got a slightly older girl with bright blue eyes as well…

    I love that you had a simple birthday party. That is what we did for our little boy who just turned 1 on the 6th. I made the cake, frosted it, made a homemade banner and all that. (you can check out the pic on my blog. *winks*) And yes, he has amazing blue eyes, wow!

    I think if I fell into those eyes I would be swimming for weeks and finally end up in some alternate dimension where there exists a perfect world. :) They are just so captivating and marvelous. When I look at them I am just sucked into them and it’s hard for me to look away.

    What incredible eyes! I never tire of the pictures of children so post away! I have a blue eyed munchkin (alas, not THAT blue) who’s just 7 months older than yours. It’s funny how a year can seem to go by fast when it is made up of so many sleepless nights that each seem eternal!

    Anyway, just found your blog today and I am enjoying it. Thanks!

      happy crafting,
