As the saying goes when raising children, the days may be long but the years are short. Sleepless night and 2 am feedings give way to baby smiles, coos and laughs, sitting, crawling, first teeth and first steps. So many moments, so many milestones. And in the blink of an eye, just one trip around the sun, your tiny bundle with 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes is a bouncing, babbling, laughing, toddling 1 year old.
Jackson came to celebrate this huge milestone with me in the studio complete with the cutest little cake made by his mom. Jackson is one of my first Milestone Club kiddos so his cake smash was a little bittersweet because now I won't get to see his big blue eyes every 3 months. (Luckily for me we already have a date for some fun fall photos - couldn't let him go that easy).
I first met Jackson when he was just a tiny peanut. Even then his mom knew she didn't want to miss a moment of his first year. Every 3 months I'd see his cute little face and every 3 months he was doing something new. Watching him grow has been such a joy for me!
Without further ado....the birthday boy!
