Henry, handing me his digital camera that won't take a picture because the memory card is full, says to me instead...

"Mommy, my camera won't work, it is full of memories."

Full of memories is right. :)

Fisher's First Birthday!

Happy Birthday Baby Boy! I can't believe it has been a year already! Sorry about the summer birthday (a few days shy to be official, but it sure feels like summer early this year). This is probably the first of many birthday pictures you will have looking a little warm with pink cheeks. Promise we'll have our fair share of pool parties, parties at the movies, and other places that will keep you cool in years to come.

Ommy and Poppy so graciously hosted the party this year and it really wasn't too bad. If there is a silver lining to the ice storm it is that the trees got thinned out in their back yard and for the first time in years there is beautiful grass growing where there has been bald spots. Poppy grilled turkey burgers and had the best potato salad ever. Ommy worked her magic again and produced a festive cake. The theme was just colorful fun and Ommy made a giant cupcake cake and lots of smaller ones to go with it.

I see Cousin Owen got the "wear patch madras" memo.

Fisher with Granddad.

Let the festivities begin!!

Since Fisher's birthday was on a Wednesday we had his party the weekend before. This is from the morning of his actual birthday. I've taken a picture of the boys on the morning of their birthdays. With Henry they have been a little haphazard so far, just catching something on my phone. But this moment and these pictures are special to me. Fisher and I were the only ones awake in the house and we got to spend a little quiet time together. Just like one year ago today, it was just he and I for a little while until we were with all the others we love.

It has been a wonderful year, we are so glad you are part of our family.

Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Boy!
