Roman's 1st Birthday

Our darling Roman boy turned a year old on the 6th! I actually gave myself a deadline to have his baby book finished by his birthday... I didn't even start it til he was 11 months old, but I'm happy to report that I made my deadline & am very happy with how his book turned out! Anyway, I stayed up til 1am the night of the 5th cleaning/organizing the house & preparing for his party so that I could just spend his birthday enjoying him... & that I did!! We had a fun day together- despite his Dr. appt where he got 3 shots :(... (thankfully, it didn't make him grumpy). Roman's 12 month stats were 21.4 lbs - 50%, 31.75 in tall- 95%, Head- 90%. He lost a lb from his 9 month check up, but that's just because he's so dang active! He's still on the same curve since birth (tall & skinny with lots of brains) & healthy as a horse, which we are very grateful for! We had a REALLY fun party that night to celebrate him! Here are some pictures of the festivities:

Cake time:
I thought he would cry when we sang to him, but he just kind of looked at us & danced a little bit
Oh, & he took one bite of his cake & was done! The kid has never had cake before so I thought he'd go crazy for sure... not so much!

Thank you everybody who came & spoiled Roman- he LOVED all of his gifts & was so excited when he opened each one!
I honestly can not believe how fast this year has gone by, & at the same time can't remember what life was like without Roman in it. He is the biggest blessing in our lives & I can't wait for all the years to come that we get to spend with him!

Thanks for inviting us to the Birthday boys party! I still laugh thinking of Roman jumping on his 4wheeler like he was a pro, it was so cute!

Wow I can't believe he is one already. You are so amazing to get his scrapbook done I still don't have my kids done! I also love the cake so cute.

The party was really fun, the boys were all sad to miss it! The cake turned out so cute and Roman gave the best reactions as he was opening presents! He is such a sweet and cute little guy.
