Really? A year old already?
My youngest nephew is growing so fast. Even since we took these pictures, he's started walking on his own. He says a few words, and (kinda) feeds himself with a fork. I feel like he's been in our lives forever, yet he should definitely not be 1 year old yet. I love that he already has so much personality. He's stubborn and competitive, yet laid back with a gentle, loving smile. I LOVE this kid!
What better way to celebrate this little firecracker than with a smash cake? I really never need an excuse to make a mess. The messy photo shoots are always my favorite:)
|He was so close to walking on his own when we took the pictures! Since he was born on July 3rd, he's always been a lil' firecracker. He has the shirt to prove it!|
|How big is Jonah? SO BIG! (Yes, he is such a good little performer)|
|How old is Jonah? (I was soo impressed that he knew this one!)|
|Showing off for the camera while he awaits his smash cake. He's a little stud.|
|He doesn't waste much time.|
|He's definitely sucking on the cake here.|
|This is my favorite face EVER! I don't think he can't get anymore stuffed in at once.|
|C'mon mom, don't you want some love now?|
|Oh, look! Distraction:)|
|Hmmm...looks like he may have missed some icing.|
|Sucking icing off his own toes? This kid is my hero:) We were laughing so hard I could barely hold the camera!|
|Icing up the nose, icing in his ear...|
|Running out of cake...|
|Gotta get every last bit!|
That's right...he ate the WHOLE thing! I was so impressed. He looked a little glazed over when we were done, but he sure can handle his sugar! Cleaning him and the high chair was a totally different issue though...
Happy 1st Bday Jonesy. Love you!
