we're a week past the actual day, but i'm still feeling a little celabratory. and if i'm being completely honest, a little and nostalgic and weepy too. for on november 29th my little woodrow fox turned one.
since the most awesome little person came into our lives one year ago, our home and our hearts have never been so full of love and laughter.
marking woodrow's first birthday has also meant marking several other anniversaries. one full year of parenting. one full year of breastfeeding. one full year of co-sleeping. pretty monumental stuff. and so we marked the occasion with cake. a mini one for baby that he could smash to bits (although that never happened - he just poked it a bit and that was that) and a bigger one for the adults to share. they weren't my usual sugar-laden, rich and decadent cakes that i usually bake up for birthdays as i tried to keep things a little cleaner for woodrow. still very yummy though in all their green avocado frosting goodness. i'll share the recipe with you soon - for now let's just give the little birthday boy another "hip hip hooray!"
happy, happy birthday to you my little fox baby.
