Officially A Toddler



That's right. My special little guy is officially one year old. He had his birthday on November 8th. He is no longer a baby but a toddler now. The time has just flown by so quickly. I can hardly believe it's been a year already. This year has been so many emotions running up and down for us especially in the beginning.
For those of you who have been a long time reader of my blog, I am sure you remember. For those of you who are new, you can look back on my post about this. My little guy almost didn't make it and wouldn't be here today if the doctor's didn't do what they had to do. I am so thankful that they were so knowledgeable to be so quick to help my little man survive this far in life.

So we didn't have a big birthday party like we did with my daughter's first birthday. This time, we did just a small family thing. My parents took us out to dinner a few days before to celebrate Reg turning one. It was fun. The kids got balloon animals and he got his taste of his first real dessert {since he has been a strictly organic only fed baby} they brought out one of those brownie ice cream treats for us and sang him Happy Birthday.


Then on Friday Nov. 8th {his actual birthday} I took the kids to my parents house and they gave him another birthday dessert treat and he opened his presents.


And that evening, we had a small birthday party for him at the house. My mom bought some things for us to use. Just some small decorations and a cake. I forgot to use the plates and little party accessories my mom bought...oopps! It matched the little safari themed banner on the wall. It was fun though. My daughter had a great time helping out with everything for him. And of course, more presents to play with :)


So I think he had a nice little birthday. Nothing fancy or out of this world, but it was special for a special little guy! He sure seemed to enjoy the sugar rush he got!

  3. Rebecca, my sister drank goats milk when she was little due to a milk allergy. She never learned to like it, so I think it's great that your little guy loves it. It looks like he had a wonderful birthday and was showered in lots of love!

    1. Thanks! And he loves goat's milk. He's been drinking it for a while now. We were mixing it with his formula at first but now he will drink it straight.

  4. Jack also weighs 20 lbs. People are always saying how small he is but I'm okay with his size. He just isn't a big eater but developmentally he is perfect. Reggie had many fun filled birthdays. He is precious and I love that I can follow along with a blogger who has a baby the same age as Jack.

    1. It is fun to have a fellow friend with a baby pretty much the exact same age {literally} as my baby.
      I don't get the "is too small" thing cause you know, it's standard for the baby to be 20 pounds at one year of age. Yet, for some reason, now a lot of babies are a lot more than that. But I get that a lot too so don't worry. He is not small. 20 pounds is perfect!!! And Jack looks totally perfect to me and adorable as well.

  8. This is absolutely adorable. It reminds me of when my little guy turned 1. He's 19 months now. What a blessing! We didn't do anything big for his 1st birthday either. It was just the 3 of us and it was awesome. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Countdown in Style! Don't forget to come back on Friday to see if you are featured. xoxo

    1. Thank you :)
      Yea, it's so hard to keep throwing birthday parties. My daughter's birthday was just three weeks ago and we had a big one. When she turned one, we had a big one for her as well. But with the weather being so cold now and everyone just came to her party, we figured it would be nice to have something at home and just with us for him. Next year, we can start with an actual party I think

    1. I have been doing that so I don't skip anything for his baby book. Every time I have done an update on here about him I've been trying to get the stats in. I love comparing how he's growing to how my daughter did :)

  11. Ms B slept that way! She only slept 6 hours last night (she's two). I can't imagine going back to that. I'm so happy 4G sleeps like, well, a baby. It's awesome!

    1. You are lucky. My daughter was a horrible sleeper. But he is so much worse. I'm very scared to know what baby #3 has in store for us! LOL

    1. Aww.. youa re so sweet. I'm glad you found me too. Yes, the whole birth and surgery were such a sad time for me. Not his birth, but when we found out the bad news. I'm so glad too he shows no signs of anything wrong now

  14. Awwww, he is such a cutie! What a lucky little guy to have 3 birthday celebrations! I'm so glad to see him growing up to be such a happy, healthy toddler. I remember being so worried when he was sick! I hope he starts sleeping better for you soon!!! I'm in the same boat here, I swear I would die for just 3 consecutive hours of sleep.

    1. It was a really scary time for all of us going through his surgery. I'm glad I had such an amazing friend like you to help me through that rough time
