Jackson's First Birthday

Our baby boy turned ONE last month and we celebrated with family, friends, mexican food and a smash cake! My mom made Jackson's cake and sweetened it naturally with applesauce and bananas. She added some sugar to the cream cheese frosting and obviously the frosting was Jackson's favorite part. I was amazed at how long he sat, slowly eating the frosting. Rather than "smashing" the cake, he started to pull each layer apart from the four layer cake. I knew he was done when he started to push the cake under his tray! So much fun! Thank you to everyone who came over to celebrate Jackson and surround him with so much love. We are so very thankful for the love and support from our family and friends over the past year.  The meals that were brought over when Jackson was born, gifts and words of encouragement all meant so much to us. Most importantly, thanking God for this blessing of a happy and healthy baby boy.
These adorable cookies were made by my mother-in-law and her friend! They made 5 dozen and they tasted just as good as they looked!
Some photos from the morning of Jackson's birthday:
We lucked out having our friend, River (who also happens to be an amazing photographer) visit for the weekend and he was generous enough to snap all of these photos for us!  Thank you Riv for this gift that we have to look back on and cherish forever.
