Happy 1st Birthday Julien!!!





























What an amaaaaazing 1st Birthday Party for Julien!!! I always dreamt of having a little boy and having a Where the Wild Things Are party!!! It's my favorite childhood book! I could have had this party for one of the girls but I somehow thought maybe just maybe I would have a little boy... a twinkle in my eye... :-) 
We were so happy that the outside of our remodel was just about complete! Thanks Dad! whew! It was so great having a yard again! 
We celebrated with a nice little brunch with family and friends! I made a yogurt & granola bar! My mom & brother helped so much making little tea sandwiches and all sorts of fun little details! Mattias made his famous chocolate nutella cake! I mean it was such a fun collaboration of all of us coming together and celebrating this sweet boy's first year!!!  I loved this day!!!


Easter...









fun little Easter with these little bunnies...

turning one...























Our little boy turned ONE this spring... and it felt right... it felt like it was time for him to turn ONE! His first year was amazing! He grew so much in so many ways... as did we as a family! We learned how to be a family of five... especially a family with a baby. It was fun, hard, funny, and just beautiful! We cannot imagine our world without this sweet little boy named Julien... He is our everything!!!
