Big Bad Birthday Preview

Ahhh....the boy is ONE! It's over. All day yesterday I was checking the time and thinking back to what was happening at exactly (or roughly, because, really my memory is not that good) that time a year ago. Yes, we were still up chatting (Bugga was sleeping of course) when the time came: 11:54 p.m. April 13th. A slimy, blue, tiny, but quite healthy, baby boy, with 10 fingers and 10 toes, had finally come out and was placed on me, the new Momma, to see for myself just what--or rather who--I had given birth to. As probably all mothers know well, it's a sight I won't ever forget and one I will always treasure.

I have so many pictures, I'm having an internal debate on what to post for now. Of course, MUCH is yet to come, but I titled this a "preview" to purposefully limit myself for now as time is slim. Memaw and Papaw are still here visiting, so I imagine I'll get more up later this week.

Bugga's first birthday cake. Yes, I'm that Mom...the one that makes her son's cake with garbanzo beans. ;) Was he a fan? No, but to be fair, he also promptly spit out brownie from Famous Dave's that his Papaw tried to give him with lunch earlier in the day. HAHA. Maybe he's not a fan of chocolate? Maybe he's not really our kid? Who knows, but it seems for now he won't be chasing us around when we have brownies, or cake, or chocolate cookies, which is really just a bonus if you ask me.
More later, you can count on that!
