Turning one is oh-so-fun

Sixty of Bryce's family and friends joined us on Saturday evening for Bryce's first "birthday" and "baptism" celebration. In truth, Bryce is midway between his actual birth date and his adjusted birthday, and he was already baptized in the NICU, but the timing worked well and we wanted everyone to have an opportunity to join us for his special day. Besides, we hardly need an excuse to celebrate our little squeaker.

The man of the hour was all giggles and smiles for nearly the entire day, and his good humor was infectious in spite of the muggy weather. Bryce is our water baby, so we weren't too surprised when he passed on the inflatable moonwalk bouncer, which was towering over our house, in favor of his new pool. In fact, he gave everyone a good laugh when he tried to start the party with a splash by diving headfirst into the baptismal font.

Best of all, he got to have his cake and eat it too. Thanks to all who helped make Bryce's special day a success. We hope you had a great evening!

  3. Bryce's party was a great event, at least a 10+.
    We had so much fun. Bryce was center stage, he took control and entertained everyone. How generous of you to share this day with all of us.
    Bryce's body is so solid. He appears to be very healthy and he watched the crowd all day focusing his vision on each one. Working a crowd must be his thing. Thanks and love,
    Grandma Renee
