Happy First Birthday, Brady!

Because I have dial up at home, I am not able to post all the photo's I would like to. So you are gonna have to wait! In the meantime, here is a classic first birthday shot. ;-)
We had a party for Brady yesterday. Because of the the weather my whole family did not make the 2.75 hour trip (they had 4" of snow by 5pm last night!). And Chris's parents couldnt make the trip either. Chris's 2 sisters and thier families were able to join us. We also called a few local friends last minute and asked them if they wanted to join us. (didnt invite them originally because with just our parents and siblings and their family.... that makes 23 people, a full house). So, Tony and Andrea from across the street joined us (they are expecting thier first baby any day now. Brady would love to share his birthday with him!). And The Swens joined us too. We kept is casual and fun. And it was! Thanks to those that were able to make it! It was nice to be able to celebrate with you! Those that couldnt make it, you'll get your turn!
Highlights.... the cake on the face! Cousin Lydia helping open gifts. Brady debating giving Lydia a black eye (hahaha, just kidding! but watch out lydia at your next party!) Chris's top notch bloody mary's. good friends and family. Lots of laughs and smiles!
Last night Chris and I were chatting about the day and the fact we have a 1 year old. First, fabulous day for all of us! 2nd, we have the most wonderful little boy. Way more amazing then we ever imagined. The first year of a baby's life is incredible, all the changes they go thru, and watching them become who they are. We are so much in love with this little boy!
