Charlie's 1st birthday

It's crazy to think that Charlie is 1-year old! This past year has just gone by so fast! There's a taste of sadness that he's no longer a baby, but also great joy in seeing him grow and change into a little boy!

The birthday celebration was so special with Grammie, Meme and Papa all in from Missouri and then of course all of Charlie's buddies came to play and eat cake too!

I decided on a dog themed party for this occasion. I felt that fitting since he's so interested in both of our dogs, Bella our black lab and Zoe our yorkie. We had dog shaped cookies for favors, a dog on the cake and a puppy adoption where the toddlers were able to pick out a stuffed puppy dog, name it, put a collar on it and take it home with them!

Charlie of course loved his first taste of cupcake and icing and had such a great time playing with all of his friends in our backyard. A long nap was definitely taken that afternoon!

Thank you to all of our friends and family for coming to celebrate and make this birthday so special for Charlie!
