First Birthday

First Birthday

Wow…incredible! One whole year has passed since our miracle entered the world. It didn’t seem all that long ago that we were anxiously anticipating his arrival and on July 7, 2008, he took his first breath and took our breaths away.

Jude had a great birthday. We didn’t do anything extravagant or too out of the ordinary. But, we just celebrated the fact that he is in our lives and beamed at how much he has developed.

This is a video of when Jude first woke up on his birthday.


Jude got his own dachshund for his birthday. It was incredibly sweet to see how his eyes got so big when he saw it.


Then he gave the toy a big hug.


Birthday dinner with some of Jude’s favorite foods, such as avocado.


Jude is sharing his birthday dinner with Liam.


Time to sing Happy Birthday. Jude is a little unsure about the whole situation.


Party’s over!


Jude is helping out in the bathtub to get all that cake off of him.


We didn’t remember until bedtime that we had a party hat for him to wear. He wasn’t too happy about that.


Someone else can wear the hat while we read our bedtime stories.
