Last Sunday we celebrated Tommy’s first birthday and baby dedication at church. Our house was packed with family, who drove in to spend the afternoon with us, celebrating little buddy. It was the most beautiful day – that perfect fall weather with warm sunshine, crisp air, and crackly leaves. Tommy was a little bashful with the attention and his first slice of cake, but he warmed up to it and ate it up, figuratively and literally.
If I’m honest with you, he’s totally stolen my heart, and it seems like the year has been both incredibly slow and incredibly fast. Time speeds by and he has grown in leaps and bounds, but I also feel like I have savored his smallness and all the baby milestones. I couldn’t help but remember Evelyn’s first birthday party, when we announced that we were pregnant. This time around, we’ve loved watching how Evelyn takes it all in and looks out for her little brother. We decided it was a good opportunity to get Thomas a few gifts that were “his” (mostly in Evie’s perspective), since she is pretty possessive of every.thing. in our house. Sharing is hard.
Here are a few pictures from our day!
