Boone Is One!

One year ago yesterday Boone came into the world :)
So yesterday we decided to celebrate
First we let Boone play with the sprinkler in the backyard
 It was pretty hot on Sunday so then he took a dunk in his pool

Then he played with his toy...about 10 minutes after I took these photos I had to throw it in the garbage because he had it torn to pieces and was starting to eat the plastic
Then we headed to the front yard for some Kodak moments
This is my FAVOURITE :) 
Isn't he beautiful? I might be a biased Mommy but yeah....I think he looks awesome in this photo
His ribbon says "Birthday Boy" if you can't read it clearly

The rest of the day he would play, sleep, play, sleep....until dinner time we took a few more photos
His 1 year old candle in his food. I know it looks gross but it's still cute
Time for gifts....well one gift...a new sheep toy! When Kristen brought it out from the store, I said this is cute enough to go in the nursery...we can't give this to Boone!!
But it was Boone's gift and he loved it...even this morning he was still walking around the house with it in his mouth.
And that was Boone's first birthday. Not sure if we'll do the same next year considering we'll have a little one crawling around but it'd sure be nice if we could :)

Happy Birthday Boone! I agree about the sheep toy, I would have really had a hard time letting the dog chew that one up!

I agree, Boone is beautiful! Just wait until you have baby toys everywhere. He going to think your house is a big toybox for himself!!

Hello - I don't want to seem weird or anything (seriously), but I was googling "pictures of 25 weeks baby/ pregnant" (because I am 25 weeks pregnant and wanted to see what my baby looked like) and your blog came up quite high on the page so I clicked on the google link.

Anyway - I noticed that you seem as into the whole experience as me and that you had an adorable golden retriever - and I just wanted to say I know what your going through all the way from over here (in Australia), as not only am I preggers with my first baby - but my best friend in the world was my old golden retriever Bill (and he used to eat EVERYTHING!). Anyway - that's all, I'm not weird just a hormonal pregnant woman who felt I should write and say hi - good luck with everything, your dog is the cutest and I'll get back to my googling for some pics of what this human inside me who seems to be trying out for the Australian gymnastics team looks like!
