12-15 Months

He's on the move, folks!!! We love him soo much. He's constantly making us crack UP!! Almost every single night... before we get in bed... Jaren and I peek at his monitor to see his sleeping body is his tiny crib and say, "He's so cute." 
NOT KIDDING!! We adore our little man. 

- 9.15 full blown walking! Like a 6 foot stretch!

Crew is UNO!!!

Crew turned UNO so we partied mucho and threw him a huge fiesta! Complete with tamales, chips and salsa, grilled shrimp, mexican rice, a pinata, and a dog wearing a pancho and sombrero. I'm so mad I didn't get any pics of the food/serving table! But here's some other pics of his party, and bloopers from his UNO photoshoot!
 And here's some from his photo shoot! I WAS SWEATING trying to wrestle a dog, a child, a mustache, and a hat. But, it was all worth it!
And the final product..... TADA!! Phew we worked hard for this shot!
Happy Birthday to our little man!

12 Months Old! Sept 3

1 whole year.
This is my last post to complete his monthly updates for the first 12 months of his life. I can't believe it!!! Time has literally flown by, and it makes me so sad to see my little baby growing up. BUT I know I need to get over it because this is a part of life! Doesn't make it any easier though! A few nights ago I bawled to Jaren about how we're losing out little baby and swooned over teeny tiny pictures of his newborn self. SO SAD!!!
We sure love our little guy though, and he is definitely getting SOOOO fun!!!
