Rylan's Turing ONE!!

I can not believe it! You know when when everyone (older people) tells you to "enjoy it now, they grow up so fast" when you have your first baby... I don't think you really realize it until it seems like you blinked and they are having their 1st, 2nd, 3rd birthday... I know that you may be thinking... wait until they are teenagers, graduate and move out... then you will really think time flies... well honestly I don't want to think about that so right now we are just going to chat about how fast Rylan's 1st year went...

This was me the day of my due date...
then a few days later HE ARRIVED!
Cam is such an amazing daddy! He loves his little girl and his little guy!
Our first family photo...
My little baby boy! We were SOOOO excited to hear we were having a boy after having our baby girl first. (I honestly dreamed of having a girl then a boy when I was younger) we were so blessed to have a healthy (little chunky) baby boy arrive only a few days after his due date.
Let me tell you, after having him I would have 5 more! He was an EASY baby! My first, not so much... she didn't sleep through the night until her brother came along... She was a challenge(a good challenge) but I wouldn't change it because she prepared me for having another baby!
Rylan slept through the night, ate very well, was healthy his whole first year (with minor colds here and there) and got his nick name "Smilin' Rylan" Everyone says he smiles soo much, they have never seen a kid smile like him... He is my happy boy! I love it!

His birthday is actually May 3rd but we are having his first birthday party with family and friends on the 7th of May (Saturday) because weekend work best and his daddy will be home too :)
He makes me smile :)
I am one of those moms who likes checking out ideas online for parties to get inspired and wants to have a theme and have fun with it :) For Adalie's 2nd Birthday we did a Cowgirl theme, I used Create a Critter and did all the farm animals on 12x12 paper to decorate and it was a blast. I am so sad I forgot to take pictures of all my boy and girl farm animals :( ... For Rylan's Birthday I tossed the idea of Dinosaurs, Robots or Monsters for a theme... we came up with monsters (mostly because I just love the mini monster cartridge and wanted to use it so bad)

Here are the invitations (just for a peak of whats to come)

I got the paper in a big pack from Winners... it had a little of every occasion and this was the "Halloween" themed stuff... (we don't do Halloween so I am getting a different use out of it)

I have so many fun ideas and I WILL remember to take photos of all the fun decorations! I am going to use my cartridge as much as possible, Favors, Decor, even a t-shirt for the little birthday monster... Stay tuned for photos from our little monster's party after the weekend of the 7th :)

Thanks for visiting :)
