we did it. together. one year old baby boy! one year of parenthood. high fives on not killing the baby ;)
i have to admit to being one emotional mama this week. so today i thought i would be a wreck, but that was not the case. i felt so happy. happy about the year we've had, happy, happy that you're our son.

the day started with smiles, not hard when you have grandma liverpool in the house! my poor mum travelled up yesterday but got stuck in traffic so missed caleb before bed. watching the two of them together this morning was the sweetest thing.

so a few pictures of our day...
balloons are the best :)
just a card or two
present time
lets get this party started :)

after taking a few pics of the day i put my camera to the side, i didn't want to miss the day by trying so desperately to document it. this was a party after all ;) 
but all was not lost, my niece ciara saw my camera and asked if she could take some pictures. take some (amazing) pictures she did! thank you my little talented photographer.

i cooked caleb his favourite meal for his birthday, meatball and chorizo stew.
 my favourite lady in the world ♥
happy birthday to you (you weren't too sure about this bit)
think we took helping you blow the candle out a little too seriously!
now this bit you liked!
 me and my boys

thank you so much to everyone today, near and far. all of you have made this the most incredible day. i'm overwhelmed by the love, and feel so blessed that caleb has such amazing, caring and wonderful people in his life.

looking forward to leg two in the pool :)
