A first birthday already? Yes, already.
We celebrated Brig's first birthday with a little cowboy-themed get-together in our backyard on the most beautiful fall morning. It was simple and filled with laughter and memories and good food. I devoted a few days to Brig's birth and the events of his first year during "Bountiful Blessings" over the month of November, here and here.
I think watching both my boys grow and change from month to month can be easily summed up as bittersweet. I cherish their "baby days," but look forward to what God holds next for them. I've had a lot of people ask if I was sad about Brig turning 1 and I honestly wasn't sad at all. I had enjoyed the prior 12 months so very much, but he's a kid and if there's one thing a kid does best, it's grow up f.a.s.t. You just have to enjoy each stage as it comes and as it goes. He's a full-fledged toddler now...busy and curious and such fun!
