Marston's FIrst Birthday!

My dear sweet Marston turned 1 year old today. I can't believe a year ago I was in the hospital with my new little baby boy with curly red hair. It's been a great year, filled with exhaustion and pure joy. The purest joy life has to offer comes in being a parent. I am so grateful we were finally able to get pregnant and have this beautiful little boy.

I made the happy birthday banner and birthday hat. I started it about 2 weeks ago and this morning I only had the "H" done in happy. I sewed and hot glued all day to get the thing done. I think it turned out well.

Sorry the pictures are clearly out of order.


  1. He is so cute. I'm so glad I could be there and help celebrate his 1st year. I love that little guy so much! I'm also glad that he really liked his Mickey. Oh and I LOVE the push cart thing with the alligators. That is awesome. It was very pleasant Abbi. Thanks for thinking of us.

  2. I agree that he is so cute! Happy Birthday Marston! YOu are such a joy to be around and we feel so grateful to have you as family!

  3. You're right! The deepest love and joys come from being family; I'm so happy to have the 3 of you in mine!!!

  4. He is so big but that could be because I saw him last year. Looks like you had a nce birthday for him.
