Maddox Turns ONE!

While we were home for Christmas, we celebrated Maddox's first birthday. It's hard to believe that our baby is already one. The first year of his life went by so quickly. He has grown, changed and learned so much in such a short time.

Since he is a winter baby, I thought it was fitting to go with a winter theme.

Snowflake cake

Snow (balloon) covered floors

His banner said "Maddox's ONEderland"

Maddox even had a birthday shirt, complete with his name and 
a big "1" covered in snowflakes.

Maddox especially loved the balloons.

He needed some help opening presents, but enjoyed seeing the items inside.

The birthday boy with his cake!
(and snowflakes on the windows)

Eager to dig in.

He didn't know what to think when we sang "Happy Birthday".

Daddy helping him blow out his candle.

He liked the cake, but was tentative to try it.

He loved squishing it in his fingers, but this is the messiest he got. 

Yummy!


Here's a little snippet of his birthday bash. Cautiously eating cake.

We had a lot of fun celebrating Bubba's birthday. All of my and Matt's family were able to attend. Maddox received lots of wonderful gifts: toys, diapers, clothes, and books. Everything a little boy needs! Thank you to everyone who came to his party, and those sent a card or a gift. He is a very loved little boy.
