Today we celebrated Henry and his first year with us!

We weren’t sure if we should have a birthday party for a one year-old, but I’m so glad we did. It was a great chance to get a few of his closest friends and family together. We ate cupcakes and snacks, watched a “greatest hits” slideshow of Henry’s first year, played a game of “who does Henry look like more?” (no one could pick just Nick or I – I think they didn’t want to choose a side!), and just enjoy each other’s company.

His Grandpa Storch came to visit for the whole weekend and brought him three exciting new toys.

The Vastanos arrived in (plaid) style with their adorable dudes.

But Henry still does not like to be sat on the couch with a camera in his face.

His beloved sitter, Valerie, and her son came by. Henry wanted her to carry him around for the rest of her visit.

I was so proud (and surprised) that Henry was sung happy birthday to, got cake smooshed in his face, and then laughed at, without any tears! What a good sport.

Happy birthday to Henry, the little boy (no longer baby) who brings us all so much happiness. He continues to challenge me to be a better person every day. I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but I never knew how amazing it would be until Hank happened. I love you, Henry. Happy happy birthday.

Bonus: Incase you feel like reminiscing (I do!), here’s Henry’s birth story.
