Birthday Boy

Barrett turned one year old yesterday!  Happy Birthday Barrett!! 
I can't believe all that has happened in the last year. 
We had a small birthday party for Barrett over the weekend, which was a blast.  It was wonderful to have friends and family around to celebrate his big day with us. 

A little hesitant on the cake at first....

But, he decided to dig in anyway!

Splashing in the pool~~
Learning to ride his first four wheeler...must remember to steer around the birthday china!

He recently picked up a few new words: uh oh, dog (sounds like da, but he says it to Sassy), and most notably -- MAMA!  Finally, yay!  Also, he's drinking whole milk from a sippy cup and is doing well, except that he still wants his milk warm (not cold from the fridge) so there's still some work to do.  I'm easing him into it...I don't want to do too many new things at once and un-do his progress.

On Tuesday, the official Birth Day, Barrett played on his swing at home...

Had some birthday cake after lunch...

And then took a long afternoon stroll to the park to play on the swings and slides. 

It was a great day.  Here's to many more birthdays!!
