The Big Guy's Big Day


Jake turned 1 on March 22nd. I know that time goes by fast, but his first year has been a whirlwind for me. What a cutie. I've been asked quite a number of times if we are "done."
"You've got your girl and your boy, how perfect!" They say. And my response? If I knew all babies would be like Jake, I could have 10 more (minus the whole being pregnant thing). He has been happy from day one. I've loved every second with him.

We brought the Patterson clan over to our house on Jake's actual birthday. Here are a few of those moments...


The evening began with an intense race to the remotes at the end of the coffee table.


Jake eyes his competition... "I think I've got this one nailed... Of course, I am 3 months older than Brik and he's almost walking! I better step it up a notch!"

Way to go, Boys!


Kate and Gracie were getting things perfect at the princess table


And we were ready to enjoy the food






Jake's Cake...Let the Fun Begin


































Happy Birthday, Jake!


So glad your mine!
