It was a good day today!
We had lots of fun. And lots of laughs.
First off, my photographic partner in crime, Sean took all the pictures today.
Which was great so I could just focus on being momma.

My favorite picture of the day....

Here is his cake I made...

First we played a little "What time is mr. shark" (Alden insisted it had to be shark instead of fox."

Played a little classic pin the tail on the donkey.

Jackson found Alden's costume and wore it around a bit.
(The glasses aren't part of it!)

Cousin Sonya was totally into it. :)

Kenzie was stylin' as well....

Nate wasn't a fan of the glasses, but he sure enjoyed the cake.

Little Lucy really enjoyed all the kids over...
and the chocolate milk and cake.

And as a bonus I got to hold a beautiful new baby boy.

Each year when Alden's birthday comes around I remember that day.
When I first experienced all of this motherhood stuff.
It's something I knew I always wanted to do.
One day I'll be a mom.
But then one day it's here.
It is amazing. And overwhelming.
And wonderful.
I remember, very vividly, falling in love with him the moment he was out.
I remember how hard labour and delivery is.
How special that moment is.
When they place that baby on your chest for the first time.
It is unexplainable.
I am so grateful that I get to do this.
And that Alden was the little man who started it all off.
