How We Spent Sawyer’s Birthday

I can’t believe my baby is one. His actually birthday was on Thursday so I cleared my whole schedule and we went out for the day and the computers went completely away. It landed on a school day so once I dropped Gavin off at school (he hates the bus) I stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts and grabbed him a double chocolate donut.

It’s safe to say he liked it. Here’s a video of his first taste of a donut & chocolate EVER.

I took a ton of photos! So many that I couldn’t chose which ones to share. So I made a collage with a whole bunch of them. Isn’t he precious!

For once he wasn’t thrilled about having to head straight to the tub. We normally start off with playing but since he was covered in chocolate we washed first and played later.

All clean again. My big one year old.

The camera kept clicking once he was dressed. Of course in Zutano. He was ready for mommy to put away the camera and go into town!


On his hat went and off we were!

We spent the day downtown in Northampton and shopped in the little boutiques.

He loved being outside even though it was chilly. Seeing all the traffic and all the people was so interesting I couldn’t get his attention half the time.

On the way home I stopped by the grocery store since he was passed out and I found this cute little cake and thought it would be cute for when the boys came home. They had spent the evening out and loved being able to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ before bedtime.

After we sang he tried a few bites. It was chocolate again but he was full from dinner and not really interested and the boys ate it instead.

Of course we had a little more photo humor. Johnny thought this photo made him look like he was fire bending like in the avatar.
