A year ago yesterday, it was cold and snowing! The kids were dismissed from school early and by the time we got back home it was coming down hard and sticking to the ground. I knew then that we wouldn't make it up to Florence that day like we'd planned, so I held out for these first few precious pictures of my brand new nephew...
I was able to take a few more pictures of the perfect little nugget the day after he came home from the hospital.
He's the sweetest, most lovable and huggable baby boy... Love him to pieces! His smile is a mile wide and his teeth are the cutest ever. And his big baby blues will make your heart melt.
He LOVES watching Elmo and will just start cackling anytime he sees him on the television, so my sister planned an Elmo 1st Birthday party. She did such an amazing job with all of the decorations so I have to brag on her and post some pictures. She chose an aqua and red theme and created his invitation on PicMonkey.
Amy's Cakes in Killen made the perfect cake, complete with a fondant Elmo. My aunt Amanda and her girls did the Elmo cupcakes using piped red icing, store-bought eyeballs (Walmart or Hobby Lobby), orange jelly bean noses and half-Oreo mouths. We found this idea on Pinterest of course.
I just love him!

I have more photos on my real camera that I'm going to try to add later! His smash cake photos were so stinkin cute! Love you Owen! So happy to have another precious nephew!
