Time Flies

the invite

My oh my how the time does fly, how could one year have already gone by? Luca, you turned ONE! How can this be? You have brought the most indescribable joy to our lives. Your sister adores you, but I think you love her even more if this is possible. Celebrating you and your beautiful life on this day was so incredibly sweet. It came just at the right time. We had been through so much in the recent days which made this day even more of a blessing.  We went home for Ella's birthday which means we had ALL of our family, but we decided to have your birthday at our home. We missed them desperately:( But regardless, it was a beautiful day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCA BABY! You couldn't possibly be more loved.
The coloring terminal and building your own airplane...
 passport to fun coloring book!

jet fuel...
 the fueling station complete with pilot cookies, turbulent twists, cockpit crispies, aero brownies, whirly twirly cloud puffs, and first class cupcakes!

baggage claim...

 here is my sweet little birthday boy. this was the sweetest day celebrating him. we couldn't possibly love him more!

 ella was so thrilled for luca on his big day and wanted to make it known that SHE was the big sister of the birthday boy :)
 nana b and her babies :) papa bo was still in alaska :(
 and the most wonderful aunt kim who flew in to make it to our baby's big day!
 one big happy family. i felt so complete this day. 
mimi, pops, uncle andrew, aunt dee, and soon to be cousin wyatt!!!

 playing with pops...
 mommy and mimi...

 presents! luca was a little over stimulated. basically, after the airplane and the drums, I opened his presents and he played with them on the side by himself :) ella is definitely our party girl and i think luca may be a little more chillaxed :)

 oh baby, your mommy and daddy love you so. i feel as though you've always been here with us!

 just like when we took you to your birthday dinner, you got so excited when we sang happy birthday to you! you smiled so big and i could tell from the most precious look on your face that you felt SO special. mission accomplished :)
 singing loudly and cake is coming! your sister asked if she could have the honor of blowing out your candle since you would need a little help :) you guys are quite the little team.
 first taste of cake---you loved it!

 then, you called out "ELLA ELLA ELLA ELLA!" so you could share your yummy cake with her. i mean, how sweet is that? i will remember it forever.

 party on!
