How fast the year went! Honestly, time really is flying. I was thinking yesterday how the first few months were just kind of a fog/blur. I think it was just because I was exhausted and a new mom. But I know someone who just had her 6th baby and she is like that right now. So maybe it isn't the new mom thing. It has been such a joy to watch my little boy go from newborn and infant stage to toddler stage. I am so blessed and lucky to be his mama!
We had his birthday party on the Saturday after his birthday. But I did take his 12 month picture (above) on his birthday as well as this from Steak N Shake. Thought this outfit was very fitting because of the balloon for him to wear on his birthday. We went to Steak N Shake with his Grandma :)
So, on January 30th we had his party at the church. I decided that the theme was going to be Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? by Eric Carle & Bill Martin Jr. I think it turned out great. The pictures are in no particular order and there are many. Let me know your favorite! Yonatan really liked his party. Not a lot of people showed up for his party but at least some did. There was an out of town conference that had been rescheduled from the previous week and a few families that were going to come were already signed up to attend the conference. Anyways, we had tons of food left over! Next time, I won't plan on how many people actually said they were going to come. I'll go at least 10 less. But I guess better safe to have more than not enough!

sooner but Yonatan was awake most of the time that I did it.

|Why you interrupting my play time Mama?|
|Pasta Pickups while everyone else eats too.|
|So glad that Travis' dad came. Yonatan was happy to see Grandpa.|
|After we sang happy birthday he started to poke his fingers through the cake. |
He liked it but not as much as I thought he would.
|Daddy had to help out since Yonatan didn't want to get messy or grab any cake for himself.|
|This is my favorite photo :) What is yours?|
