Year 1

Well, that went fast.  How did Wolfgang get to be one already?  They say time flies when your having fun, which has pretty much summed up this past year with Wolfgang.  Of course, there have been difficult times, but on the spectrum of life it doesn't compare with the joy.  This past year has been such a wonderful adventure of self discovery and coming of age...for all of us.  I can't wait to see what even bigger changes are going to happen this year for our little guy. To celebrate we had a party for Wolfie at my folks house up in the burbs of Chicago.  I am happy I did not go over board with birthday-ness(there will be many more years ahead with theme parties elaborate decor and cakes), and just trying to make it an enjoyable day for  Wolfie.

 Wolfie's pal Evan. Evan's mum Sam and I have been pals since I was 2!

 My Husband knows his way around the grill and kitchen, no guest went home hungry.

I wanted to do a fun colored white cake,with white frosting. People were surprised with the teal colored cake.

Bringing Wolfgang his first birthday cake brought tears to our eyes. 

There was no "cake smashing" here, Wolfgang made sure no cake or frosting went to waste.

One year of being a mum under my belt, we made it through the first year as a new family.  I can't wait to see what future birthday will bring our little family. Happy birthday Wolfgang!
