Happy 1st Birthday Hampton!

Well, the day came, just as I knew it would.  June 2 rolled around and our precious itty bitty turned 1!  It was a very bittersweet day for me.  You can't ever tell if a 1 year old is having fun on his birthday for obvious reasons, but I know we had fun celebrating his first full year of life.  We started out with a birthday breakfast at the none other Cracker Barell with the whole fam - Jerry b/c he unfortunately had to work.  We got Hampton his very own birthday pancake and boy did he think he was in heaven!  :)

I'm pretty certain he's very confused with this whole food in front of him thing;
from the smash cake last weekend to the whole pancake that morning.
 Aunt Brooke with the birthday boy!
 All he cared about was the candle at this point

After breakfast we headed back home for him to open his present from us.  It's a 3 in 1 trike that will grow with him.  :)  He loves it!
He's quiet the little pro at ripping the paper these days...

 Being silly...peek-a-boo :)

All ready to go!  Thanks to hard working Daddy who put it together while he was napping :)

This girl (Lea Burnett) decided it would be a good idea to get hitched on Hampton's first birthday so we had to postpone baby boy's birthday party until next weekend.  ;)
Congrats again, Lea and Josh!  Everything was beautiful and we all had a blast!

I had to post one with his stalker...

Annnnnd as if he hadn't had enough fun (and sugar!) already, Aunt Brooke and Uncle Jerry wanted him to come spend the night with them and we didn't argue with that offer!!  :)

They also got him a little something to dig into for his birthday

"I DIDN'T DO IT!!!"  hahaha I'm obsessed with this picture!  Too funny!

To hear them tell it, he had a pretty fun time and I'm sure not surprised.  Actually, I'm a little nervous about the future when he can actually talk and want to go to Aunt Brooke and Uncle Jerry's ALL the time. ;)

We all had a great day celebrating his first birthday!  He has filled our lives with so much joy and I can't imagine what life before him was like.  Had to have been pretty boring!!  He makes our family complete and I thank God several times a day for allowing us this huge honor of being his parents.  We will never be worthy of such a blessing. 
Happy FIRST birthday Hampton!  We love you to the moon and back!
