Happy Birthday, Jack!!

One year ago today, I woke up at 7:15am to the sound of a pop and the sudden realization that my water had broken! Only a short 4 hours later at 11:20am, little Jack was born (2 weeks before his due date) weighing 6 pounds 14 ounces and measuring 19 inches long (the same weight and height Mallory was when she was born!) . Now my little munchkin weighs over 20 pounds and is crawling and pulling up on everything.

I can't believe my BABY is 1 year old today!!!!! Time, slow down!!! In just one year, Jack has brought so much love and joy into my life. He's the most happy, content, laid-back little thing I've ever seen. What a blessing to be his mommy. No words can explain the joy that both of my children have brought me. I am blessed beyond measure. I'm treasuring every single moment. They pass by way too quickly.

I'm working on Jack's 1st birthday party and I'm going all OUT with a baseball theme. It's going to be a BIG HIT! :-) He's had a wonderful ROOKIE YEAR, so we're going to celebrate our LITTLE SLUGGER turning one with hot dogs, nachos, ice cream, & cake. I'll post pictures soon. I don't want to give too much away before the big day. Here are some pictures of our sweetie pie this past year...

You are so blessed! It's so fun to look at how much he and Mallory have grown in the last year. Amazing how quickly it passes, isn't it? Happy birthday, Jack!
