ONE!...wait what???

I can't believe my little boy is ONE!  Where did the time go!??!  But man, what an incredible year it has been!  I have watched my little bean turn into a fun-loving little boy.  I am one of the luckiest mom's in the world, I had an incredible baby who at five days old slept through the night (and has ever since I might add), didn't really cry very much just grunted to let us know he needed something, and has always been very mild mannered.  It has been an honor to call myself Caleb Haiden McLaughlin's Mommy for a year now, and I can't wait to continue with that name for the rest of our lives.  To know that God has entrusted me with such an amazing little boy is such an honor and I hope I never get over that.

We had Caleb's first birthday party on his birthday, Sunday, December 28th.  It was so much fun to be able to celebrate Caleb's first year of life.  We had friends and family over to our new home and ate lots of food and cake, and watched Caleb open the sea of toys he recieved! =)  But, definitely the best part was watching the confused look on Caleb's face as we all stood around him singing Happy Birthday with a cake that had fire on top sitting in front of him, lol.  The other GREAT part was getting to watch Caleb dig into his own little Birthday Cake, just waiting for us to tell him to stop because surely he wasn't aloud to be making a mess and eating something this good!  I love my little boy and I can't wait to see what this years brings us!
