happy birthday baby boy!

I realize that it's been non-stop buzz about a certain birthday bash around here, but still, I cannot believe he is a whole year old today. Mr. G, Monkey Man, spring chicken baby. It's hard to believe you could wiggle your way even deeper into our hearts than the moment we first met you and held the cuddly newborn bundle of you exactly 1 year ago. A jillion diapers, feedings, and sleepless nights later, you are all the more the apple of our eyes.
We did a little first birthday photo shoot at the park for G's birthday invitations a few weeks ago. You can see the rest of the photos here. I really wanted the front of the invite to resemble a Curious George book, but struggled to find a font to match. Apparently George's was hand-illustrated during WWII and no longer exists in font world. Otherwise, I thought they turned out pretty stinkin' cute.

Can't wait to share party pics + an awesome meet the maker giveaway next week.

And now for my exciting announcement. The lucky free photo shoot winner is...

Laura said...My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years now and we don't have many pictures of the two of us. I take a lot of photos of my family members and I never get anyone to take pictures of us...

Congrats! We can't wait to meet you and your hubs, Laura. Can't wait to be in touch and work out the details.

Awww your little guy is such a sweetie! Isn't it crazy how the first year flys by so fast.. We don't have kids yet, but ALL of friends do... and their children are growing up so quick. I can't wait to have my own one day!

Happy Friday.

xx Love & Aloha
