{Almost ONE}


My little BIG guy is almost one! I can't even begin to tell you how fast the time has flown by. Everyone told me that it would, but now I know that it really really does. I am a bit nostalgic and weepy but am super excited at the same time.

This year we get to have Oliver's birthday party on his actual birthday because it falls on a Sunday. We are just going to have a casual get together at a great park near our house. Food, hanging out, playing, and eating cake! Yum!

I ordered Oliver's birthday invitations from Shutterfly. I love the quality of their products. This type of invitation can be pricey, so I waited for them to have a sale (luckily, the sale that came up was 50% off and free shipping), and I don't plan on doing these every year, but I felt like his first birthday is special, so I would splurge!

Here they are.....



Cute, right!? The small photos are of Oliver from 1 month old to 11 months old :) I love looking back at his tiny face and being able to compare him from month to month. Hindsight, I wish I would have done the first photo as his newborn shot because I ended up using 2 shots from his 11 month shoot at the bottom, but ah well. It's all adorable, so I don't really care. (and one more oops . . . . can you see month 4 and the fact that it is NOT on the gray chair? Ugh. We had just moved and I forgot all about it. I am bummed, but it's not the end of the world (or even anywhere in the same ballpark - duh. I feel dumb and petty for even mentioning it).

Also, the quatrefoil pattern on the back was not part of the invitation design. I chose it for the back by uploading an image that I found online. It could have been another Oliver pic, but I figured we had enough of that going on on the front already. I'm happy with how it turned out.

Next up for my super awesome little man - trying to walk. He is pulling himself up on new things everyday and it is so fun to watch!

Happy Monday everyone!
