A year already? How did that happen?


We celebrated The Gooch's first birthday this weekend...I'm still in denial that he's already a year old. I feel like I just brought him home from the hospital last week! We ended up having a beautiful day, with lots of sun and may be a touch too much heat (and humidity!) but for late August, it was a welcome change from rain and cold. We also had the Gooch's baptism that morning, so he had a pretty eventful day. Needless to say, I was exhausted by the end of the day (the last few stragglers left around 8:30 pm---that's family for ya!) Of course I had made too much food, but because some of the guests stayed, we put it out again for supper and the majority of it got eaten---yay! Here are a few pics from the cake part, which is always the best part for a first birthday party. And I have to say that altough The Gooch has never had anything sweet before, he didn't really dig in to his cake very much. He mostly played with the icing...
