It's Friday! Yeah for Family Friday!
My baby boy turned 1 on the 6th! I can't believe a year went by so fast. He decided to start the morning at 2:30ish just like he did when he was born. My water broke at 2:30 am on the day of his birth. Crazy little booger. I did get him back to sleep though.
So my little man has now been walking for a few weeks. He was my earliest walker. All the other kids walked after they turned a year old. I actually thought he would be later because he was so scared when he fell. That didn't last long. He now tries to run and falls all the time. He thinks it is funny! Oh and he is now 25 lbs 11 ozs and 31 1/4 inches long.
So we decided to get a few pictures of him on his birthday. Well we were hoping we could get him to smash a cake. No way! He was not having it. He would poke it and lick his finger. I pushed his hand in the cake and he freaked out! Poor thing. Here are the pictures we did get.

This year we also decided to start a new family tradition. Have you heard of The Elf on the Shelf? I just found out about it this year. I started looking into it and found out it was kind of pricey. So I searched on Amazon to see if I could find something else. I found Christopher Pop-In-Kin. It is the same thing as The Elf on the Shelf but I think he is much cuter. We just got Christopher in the mail today. We worked it out so we visited Santa and had him tell the kids that he already left a special gift on the porch. It was so awesome that he did this for us. So we came home and found the gift bag with a note on it. The bag was open and only a book was inside. The kids were so confused until we read the book. They looked around and found Christopher on the mantel of our fire place. All night they talked to him and tried to get him to move. It was so cute.

Your kids can get a message from Santa to see if they are on the naughty or nice list. I have to say this was so fun to do for my kids. I am going to show them later tonight :)
