turning one {personal}

Our sweet little baby boy is about to turn one.
Tomorrow is his actual birthday, but since it's during the week, we decided to have a party for him over the weekend. The theme was adventure for our Aleksandr, who really lives up to that name. He's not afraid, he's bold, and he's passionate. We are so thankful for this wee one that God has blessed us with to raise up for Him. 
It was a wonderful day to celebrate one year! We started the morning out with a little tradition of ours...a trip to the store to let the birthday boy pick out which balloon he'd like (and his older brother got to pick out his own too!). For some reason our boys LOVE balloons and the fascination with them is something to see!
The party was sailboat themed—for adventure—and it was all smooth sailing (haha, see what I did there). 
There were some tears (actually bawling...our son gets a little overwhelmed around crowds, or anyone that isn't his mama), but overall the day was a wonderful celebration. As we enter a new year with our one year old and three year old, we feel extremely blessed to be parents to these amazing little guys.
