Its hard to believe that its been close to a year since we took these photos of newborn Jackson. And now here he is with curly locks that make me swoon…
We took some photos outside where momma taught us (all) about leaves and trees.
Then, after a snack, we thought we might get some shots with a cowboy hat since Jackson’s first birthday party has a cowboy theme. As it turns out, keeping a cowboy hat on a one year old and rodeos have a lot in common.
Then it was off to play upstairs before nap time. This is one of my favorite wee one captures in the history of ever:
While Caitlin swore Jackson would not have a room with a theme, one just sort of grew out of plush zoo animals. I love how she used plastic safari figurines with wall stickers to create a jungle diorama.
Something about all those animals transformed Jackson into a wild thing!
Jackson has that adorable belly-army crawl right now…
And I loved the subtlety of supportive hands in so many photos.
Finally it was time to unwind and cuddle a bit. I made my exit just as Jackson was falling asleep.
