Maddux's First Birthday

This handsome guy would like to announce that as of April 28th He is a ONE YEAR OLD!
I know I can't believe it has been a whole year since M graced us with his presence 
11 days early might I add. 
He did not get the early thing from me. nope, He got that from his daddy ;)

We had a fun family party for his the Saturday before his birthday so more people could come
But of course we wanted this little guy to feel special on his real Birthday 
So Ty and I decided we would take his to the zoo
just the three of us!

He was fasinated by the monkeys..
thats what he is looking at all intently here

He is in a really clingy stage lately but we really like it 
cuz now he is full of snuggles
What mommy and daddy doesn't like a good snuggle from their baby


He was a little nervous about the whole animal thing at first
which totally surprised us
but as time went on he warmed up a little more
I just need to take him a lot this summer I guess




Ok this was the cutest thing I have ever seen
It pulled at my little heart strings
Madduc loved this little monkey and it was right by the glass
The monkety put his little hand on the glass and M
put his hand on the other side
Oh my heavens it was adorable they just stared at each other 
hand on hand through the glass

This was after the monkey took his hand away
M still had his up there
and they stared at each other forever
M loved him
We need a pet monkey :)


M wasn't so sure about sitting on even the fake animals
Again he is in a bit of a scardy cat stage right now

His very favorite animal was the giraffe 
There were so many of them inside so close to us because it was lunch time
He kept pointing at them and smiling
So of course we had to get him a little stuffed animal giraffe for a bday present at the zoo
He loves it now and snuggles it every nap and bedtime


M and daddy looking at the gorillas
These are Ty's favorite
Can you see why
They have the same broad muscular shoulders

There we go he is more of the gorillas baby size 
just short arms

Me and M at lunch time
I worried the whole time 
I wanted to make sure he was having a blast on his birthday
I wanted it to be perfect
I wanted him to love his day
Ty had to remind me he was having so much fun and to not worry
I can't help it 
I wanted him to have a perfect day
He did turn the BIG one after all

He was completely pooped after the zoo
This is on our car ride home 
He was out in like 10 minutes
Looks like he did have FUN! 
He is even snuggling his new toy

We decided to give the little man a happy meal for his birthday dinner
Oh man did he love his nuggets and fries
We even gave him a little sprite
It was adorable
He also loves the little action figures that he got
Why is it kids like the cheap McDonalds toys better than the AWESOME toys we get them?

After the zoo we headed down to my parents to hang out for a bit and have some cake
M is playin with uncle Adam here

Yay Birthday boy
I made another Elmo cake for us all to have on his real birthday too

Mommy and Daddy got him a mini mister potato head, a steering wheel, an Elmo movie, the classic rings toy that is pictured here and of course his giraffe from the zoo!

Happy Birthday little man
You are our world
