So, my baby turned 1! What a fabulous 1st year it has been! I'm not sure if it's because I know this is my last baby, but I have really cherished every moment of this little boys first year! He is such and amazing kid with the most amazing personality. People are drawn to his adorable little smile and laugh! I swear he came into this world fat and happy and really, he hasn't changed much. I have never seen a baby so content with life. He eats and eats and eats like every meal is his last. He loves his sleep (which I ABSOLUTELY love). He's always content pushing around a matchbox car, and he even uses this adorable little giggle to communicate. Probably my favorite thing about this boy is his smile. He's always giving them away and he has a way of raising his eyebrows and tilting his head back to make it look even bigger. Yes, I have to admit, I'm head over heels for this little man and although I am a little saddened by this big milestone, I am so excited to see just what kind of person he is going to turn out to be. One thing is for sure, he is loved! I thought the "new baby" thing would wear off after a few months, but his brothers and sister are always trying to be the one who gets to sit by him, take him out of the crib, feed him, change him, play with him, carry him. Although it gets daunting at times, it's rather cute!

Here is my SAD attempt at a car cake. Lets just say that about half way through, I got bored with it and just tried to GET IT DONE! So, it's not my favorite cake in the world, but baby really didn't mind! He dug right in and almost finished it!

He even helped me make it!! Oh, and this is that smile I was talking about! ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!

How do you make such cute cakes? I feel like the anti-homemaker around you and the rest of the Higbees! I can't believe Cache is 1already! He is so grown up!

You know what is so funny, I hate baking!! I don't always make a cake for my kids birthday's, but Vienna really wanted me to. I am a drowning homemaker. Just trying to keep my head above the mess my kids are constantly making! It's not so glamorous! good to hear from you! Hope you guys are doing well.
