Mr. "One"derful

Today is our Baby Grand's first birthday, but we got the party going early!


Our group of six grandparents, two great grandparents, one aunt, two uncles, two baby cousins, a great aunt and uncle and cousin removed or seconded (I should know this) gathered to party hearty!


Of course this was the star of the day. (And if you don't like cute baby pictures, sorry -- but I'm shameless!)


Of course we all had loads of family pictures taken...


...and Grandpa play...


... snacks...


....and cake. A cake bigger than the birthday boy!


And the toes did get a bit of frosting on them but no one minded.


It was finger-lickin' good.


Really good.


So good, in fact, that it required a very big swig of milk!


The hit gift of the day? A plastic slide. Highly recommended for a good time.


It's hard to believe that a year ago he looked like this.


And now, I'm not sure he's a Baby Grand -- he's a Grand Little Boy!


The fun has only just begun.


Woo hoo!


Keep climbing, Little Guy -- you'll have mountains to climb someday. May as well start climbing up the slide!

Happy birthday to your gorgeous grandson Jeanie.
Mine just turned 16 months, they grow so fast.

I can remember like yesterday when my own grandchildren looked like that. Now two of the four are shaving!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

What a beautiful little boy! And so alive. Thanks for sharing your festive celebration!

shoreacres said...

A year old already? That's nearly unbelievable. I look at that pic of Rick holding him, and swear that was taken only a month ago. It clearly was a wonderful celebration -- and I love your painting!

The French Hutch said...

Aww Jeannie, Your grandson is adorable. Nothing like that first birthday and first party. I remember ours. First taste of sugar, wow I'll never forget those eyes! LOL, brings back sweet memories. Your little guy is precious. Enjoy these days, you turn around and they are nine and think how fast they grow.........Sweeeet post and I love baby snaps :)

Jeanie, I could hug on that sweet baby for a long time. I love babies. He is adorable and so happy. My great granddaughter just turned 3 and she is something too. Looks like granddad was enjoying your boy. Glad you got lots of pictures. Blessings to all, xoxo, Susie

Victoria Zigler said...

OMG! He's a year old already? How did that happen?

Seems like he had a grand first birthday!

NanaDiana said...

He is just an adorable little boy. I really love the little renderings of him that you did from birth to now. So sweet.

Hang on- those birthdays just fly past and pretty soon he will be trailing your every step and begging for cookies.

Have a wonderful Tuesday! xo Diana

What a wonderful occasion. He's a sweetie. Jeanie, that painting is simply perfect. Is it going to be a gift to the parents?

Happy Birthday to that beautiful Grandson of yours, Jeanie. These are wonderful and treasured pictures. My favorite was the frosting on the toes. How exciting for him to get a red slide on his special day.

Goodness gracious, I remember when he was born....wasn't it just YESTERDAY??!! LOL He is growing so fast and yes, he is so adorable. What a cute boy and I love his bright and festive birthday cake--looks like he did too! So glad you shared these fun family pictures with us. Any signs of spring there yet?

Barb said...

That time passed so quickly. He has grown into such a cute little guy! Happy Birthday to him. I see he's enveloped in love.

My name is Erika. said...

Wow. I know that the change in that first year is amazing, but seeing the little newborn photo next to Mr. Grand Little Boy is amazing. I'm glad we'll get to see the changes this next year brings. Hugs-erika

Ricki Treleaven said...

Jeanie, your grandson is adorable! I love his big blue eyes! He's so, so cute in his little jeans, t-shirt, and flannel shirt. Great photos of y'all! :D

What a darling little boy. Beautiful photos capturing precious moments.

Pam Richardson said...

Jeanie, I cannot believe one year has passed! He is so handsome and as a grandmother, I loved every picture! He looks so cute in his flannel shirt and jeans with those blue eyes! The toes picture is adorable. He looks like he had so much fun!

Sandra Cox said...

I think the birthday boy looks like Rick. What do you think, Jeanie?

Rita C. said...

What a joyful celebration, Jeanie. He's absolutely adorable, and looks just like his daddy in that picture where daddy's behind him, on the floor. :)

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Jeanie,
What a beautiful child he is! Oh my goodness, you must certainly be over the moon in love with this precious angel! I can tell a good time was had by all and the Birthday boy most certainly enjoyed HIS special day!
Great photos!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Happy first birthday to you adorable grandson! I have two grandboys and two grandgirls and each one brings me so much joy, so gush on as I love seeing grandmother joy, Jeanie!

Marilyn Miller said...

He is a sweet one for sure. Oh, look at those baby blues! Happy birthday to your little guy. They do love the slides and climbing and sometimes it is better to close our eyes at the stunts to pull climbing.

carol@The Red Painted Cottage said...

He's adorable, Jeanie! They grow up so fast. Our youngest grandson will be 7 in two weeks; and our granddaughter, who was born in Japan, will be 15 this summer! I remember getting off the plane and seeing our son holding her; and now she'll be driving in a little over a year.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What happy times...for everyone! Those little ones bring so much joy and grow up so fast. I'm happy you...getting all those snuggles! Hugs, Diane

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh my goodness - such a precious little guy! Look at those amazing blue eyes! They grow so fast......wonderful to have so many loving arms to celebrate a first birthday. xx Karen

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am back from Missouri, where I spent two very sleepless days and nights. After returning, I crashed. Finally awake and ready to visit. Your baby grand has really aged, hasn't he? He is such a cutie and I know we will see many more years of him as he grows and matures. Glad to read he enjoyed his birthday gifts and loved how you ended the post with mountains to climb.

Julia - Vintage with Laces said...

Happy Birthday to little Grand! He's such a cutie and you two look like very proud grandparents, Jeanie.
xo Julia

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Jeanie, somehow I missed this post. What a beautiful boy. Grands are so much fun but they grow up so fast. It seems just like yesterday that our Jake was there. Now he is almost 23 and in June will graduate from Santa Clara University with his masters degree. Enjoy the years to come..Judy

Tammie Lee said...

look at that beautiful boy.
I love the photo of his feet.

Bonnie said...

Has it been a year? Wow, time passes quickly. I remember when he was born! He is adorable. Happy Happy Birthday sweet boy!
Exciting time!

Jennifer Richardson said...

enjoy those precious moments:)

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Oh my goodness, he is beautiful!! Those blue eyes! I see Rick in him! But I also see Mollie (sp?), too. He's at such a fun age. I love all the stages but I really love it when you can interact with them and their personalities start to shine through. I love the invitations you made (I assume the first pic is a party invite!). You are so talented.

Danielle L Zecher said...

He is absolutely adorable! It looks like you had a very nice party. He has the same number of grandparents and great grandparents that I started off with He's a lucky little boy! :-)
