This year has been amazing. We’ve watched our baby grow into a sweet, silly, giggly little boy. He was born on Easter weekend and took a trip home in a taxi to our apartment on the Upper West Side. In his first year he has done so much! He has visited family, spent a lot of time in Central Park, took trips to Maryland, Virginia, Miami and North Carolina, visited the American Museum of Natural History, the Zoo, and the library, watched the Macy’s Day Parade floats pass by, and had some fancy meals out where he decided guacamole is his favorite food. He loves to dance, point, wave, clap and he tries very hard to snap. Boxes are the best. Socks are the worst. And Josie is his best friend. Life is good!
We had a little party for him in Maryland and shared some of our favorite photos in a slideshow. I’m excited to also share it here. It’s long, but hey, it’s a whole year!
As a mom, who is also a professional photographer, I have taken more than my fair share of photos of him. I just hope that as he continues to grow he likes to look at the photos and I don’t hear “No mom, not another one!” too often.
For his birthday he got to have cake for the first time. His Grammy and I made him a funfetti cake to SMASH!
He immediately went into the bathtub.
This birthday was so much fun! I hope that every year he has more and more to celebrate.
I had never thought of birthdays this way until I had Ollie, but I feel like it is a big accomplishment for me and Eric that Ollie is one. We made it. We survived a year of parenthood! And we ate cake too… 🙂
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! This means chocolates, paper hearts and, of course, flowers! I pulled together some of my favorite wedding flower photos from last year. Enjoy!

These white and lavender bouquets are made of the Supreme Court decision Obergefell v. Hodges which legalized gay marriage in the US. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
