Landon turns ONE

I literally cannot believe that almost 12 months have gone by already. Say what? I feel like it was just yesterday when we were driving him home from the hospital for the first time. His first year certainly flew by. For my husband and I, this year has probably been the best year of our lives so far, it sure has been for me.

The joy that this little kid brings into our life is greater than any joy I have ever known before. The little smile that I see every morning when I walk into his room. It is the biggest smile – the kind of smile that you give when you find out you are going to Disney World for the first time- everyday.

The love that I have for this little boy is indescribable. He is the light in my life and my little best friend. He is the sunshine when the skies are grey. He is my mini-me. 

This first year has been nothing short of amazing. Everyday spent with him is a pleasure. I love watching him grow and learn new things. I am blessed to be called his mother and to have him be called my first. It has been an absolute joy being there for those very special moments- from watching him roll over for the first time, to seeing him sit up independently, to watching him gain the strength to stand, and even take his first steps. 

Landon Carter Speer, I love you beyond words and look forward to every year that is to come. You make me so proud to be called your mom. Don’t ever stop smiling. You make the world, my world, a better place. I love you forever and always! ~Mom

Happy birthday baby!

Landon’s FIRST birthday party!

This past Sunday we celebrated our little pumpkin’s birthday party! Landon is turning 1 in two weeks, but we will be away in Florida- so we wanted to have a party here in NJ as well!

His party was held at one our favorite local parks, Hedden Park, in Randolph. We invited all of our close friends and family to come and celebrate Landon turning ONE with us. The theme of the party was fall and we decorated the entire picnic area with pumpkins, hay bales, sunflowers, candy corn & anything else that you can think of that makes you think of autum. We had a pumpkin decorating area for the little ones and even a game of Jenga for the adults.

I was so nervous about the weather. The week leading up to the party they kept predicting rain. It even rained the night before, however, to our surprise when we wokpe up, it had stopped. When we were setting up for the party, we could see the sun peaking out. Thank you Jesus! Despite the humidity (and my terrible hair), the weather ended up being perfect. We ate a lot of great food that the hubby cooked and had a great time gathered together with all of our friends.

THANK YOU to everyone who came to celebrate L’s birthday party and for all of the amazing gifts that Landon received. He is so spoiled by you all! We feel lucky to have spent the day with you and so lucky that Landon has you all in his life. Thank you for sharing this special moment with us all!
