Fletcher | 1

{Stats: 32 inches - 90th percentile | 25lbs - 75 percentile}

Dear Fletcher,

Well, it happened.  You turned one.  The first birthday is always such a sentimental, yet victorious milestone for parents.  We made it.  Although I'm not sure where the time went.

My little fox, you're so easy going and sweet as can be. And your curiosity is contagious. I love the way you want to share the world with others.  Always pointing out "new" things with a light in your eyes about your discovery.  Your smile and your giggle make our hearts burst with love.  Life with you really is so fun.

I am excited for all the newness this next year will hold.  Happy first birthday, sweet boy.

My whole heart, 

Here are scenes from your first birthday celebration...
Birthday dinner.  Chicken, quinoa, squash, grapes and chia pudding.
The brothers helping open gifts.
Loved the wooden blocks.
Fletcher opening his handmade gift from Sullivan.  A rattle made out of baby socks, bells, cotton and ribbon.  We use what we have :)  Fletcher's face in the first pic is priceless...he's genuinely excited about his new rattle!
{Here's Sullivan busy working on making it earlier in the day.}
Max made Fletcher a boat :)
Practicing birthday cake demolition for his party.
 The weekend following his birthday we held his party at The Vintage House.
Birthday boy in his new hat.  Thanks, Neeley and John!
We had Frito Pie, apples/caramel dip, pumpkin cheesecake dip, spiced almonds, and carrots with hummus. Apple cider and hard cider for the adults. And, of course, cupcakes.
Sully with food.  As always.
Billy made the cupcakes and I made the fox cake.  I always make the kids' 1st bday smash matter how they turn out.  I figure its the thought that counts :)
Still a little apprehensive...
Children's Mercy is the charity we decided on for Fletcher.  We have so many warm hats and mittens to donate thanks to our generous guests.
Party favors.

Fletcher had a great time.  He was a little overwhelmed at times and confused by all the "Happy Birthday!" exclamations, but the cake and new toys made it all worth it I think :)

For nostalgia....
