Jackson turns ONE!

It feels like it was just yesterday I was rushing to the hospital for long-awaited arrival of this sweet little boy. How has a year flown by already?!

On Saturday, Karen hosted the cutest jungle-themed birthday party for the little man. He had a blast, and so did we! I don't know who enjoyed the cake-eating more- Jackson, or everyone else who was watching him dive in! It was hysterical!

Brother-sister love!

Pa-lease, do you see that little one he is holding up?! Don't think it was intentional, but we'll take it! ;)

those cheeks... :)

Quite possibly the cutest baby boy shoes ever

And now, for the best part...

Ahhhh! hahah- he went all in!

"Hey dad, this is great! We should do this more often!"

...back for more!

All done!

"Thanks for comin, guys!"

Cleaning off at his new water table!

Can you see the resemblance?! ;)

The sugar high... and then the crash. ;)


  1. This is adorable! His cheeks are so great, and his cake eating was amazing... I thought Caroline was fun to watch, but oh my, his face plant into the cake was awesome! Great pictures :)

  2. Your family is the greatest!!!!! Such a fun day. Its hard to tell who had more fun :) His cake eating skills, better than Ive ever seen. And Ive been to alot of birthdays. This brings me back to last year when my niece turned 1. She was quite messy herself!!

    And the shoes...I have never seen anything more adorable. Oh my gosh!!

  3. Precious! I was waiting for the "smash cake" pictures. So glad you did not disappoint me. Looks like he LOVED the cake! Reminds me of the boys' first bday party.

  4. What a cutie! Happy Birthday Jackson!

  5. Jackson is beyond handsome! I remember when my daughter turned one this past February. I agree, a year has truly just flown by. Love the photos of Jackson eating his smash cake. My daughter didn't care much for her smash cake. Following you from the Doing you well link up. I look forward to reading your future post :)
