Jaden turns ONE!

JJ and I have "adopted" Jaden as our nephew! We try to get together with our good friends Jared and Savannah at least once a week. (Most of the time it's twice a week!) We had always wanted to find that one couple that we could have date nights with, and well, we found them! Lucky for us... they have JADEN! Seriously, cutest little guy you ever did see! :) 

Last weekend he turned ONE! Although he is only one, he looks like he is two, (he is in the 99th percentile for his age!!) and is pretty dang close to being as "far along" as a two year old! He went from scootin' around on a cast, (yes, a cast) to walking, to running! He is full of emotions and screams out what he wants! "HEYYYY DADDYYYYY!" That one is our favorite! :)


I chose this picture to be first because I felt like it really showed him screamin' "HEYYYY DADDYYYYYY!"


So let's back it up and start with some presents! :)

He really only cared for the trash and tissue paper!! That is, until mom and dad got home and put all the toys together! Big trucks, loud games, and squeaky toys! 



At first he wasn't really sure what was going on. "Why the heck is no one feeding this to me with a fork?" and "What do you all expect me to do with this thing?"

THEN, he dug in. Not so much on eating it, but mostly just smashing it into a mush of sticky-ness! 

(oops, I think I dropped some in my diaper...)

(GOAL! I made it in there!)

(EHHH! I don't know how I feel about cake in my diaper!)


He had a BLAST, and I am so happy JJ and I got to be a part of it! Happy Birthday, little guy! :)

Aftyn thank you once again for making this mommy cry. I am so not great at taking photographs and getting those memories into photos that I can look back on later. I am so very thankful to have such a wonderful photographer in our lives to help me capture moments like this. I am just in awe of how beautiful all of these pictures turned out and we are so very happy that you guys have "adopted "our little guy. Thank you!
