Happy Birthday Gabriel


I can't believe it has been a year since my sweet little Gabey baby was born. I remember going to the hospital and was so petrified of the delivery. I actually had a breakdown in the hospital room as soon as we got there. A nurse walked in and I was crying. She asked what was wrong and I told her how petrified I was. She asked if it was my first baby and I said no, that it was my second. I think she was probably wondering why I was so scared if I had done it before!

My sweet little guy came at 2:03 and was the cutest baby (besides his older brother, of course.) I thank God every single day for both of my boys and feel so lucky that I was chosen to be their mom.

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures from the past year and from his party.





My favorite picture of all time:


Since Gabriel loves to eat, we thought we would do a 'chef' party. I found invitations with a little chef holding a pizza so we decided to do a pizza party. We let the toddlers make their own pizzas while the adults ate ready-made pizza. 


I made flower pom poms and hung them throughout the house. They are so easy. If you are interested, I can do a tutorial in a future post. I also hung pictures of Gabriel next to the pom poms for a little more visual interest. 



My brilliant cousin made his birthday cake. I was so impressed!



Happy birthday angel boy!

  5. Awe I absolutely adore this post. Your post sent warm fuzzies in my little soul because it made me think of my own. I'm not comfy sharing their photos on my blog yet, but your post shows me that it might not be too scary and hopefully I can step out of my comfort zone some day. You are so blessed to have such a beautiful boy~ they grow up so fast! xoxoxo
