Birthday Happenings

It's birthday week in Casa de Norton!! Decoration making is a full time job (along with nap changes - Drew, fatigue problems - me, and poop issues - Trey.. I kid, I kid.. that one is for Drew too) and the excitement is building!

We had his 1 year photos taken last week by our awesome photographer friend (who is sadly leaving us.. any other friends have any photography skills they want to work on???). A few samples below :)
One of his presents was purchased over the weekend. I love the B. collection from Target. We got him the B. Zany Zoo. It's pretty awesome! And umm.. let's just say he better enjoy it! I also want to get him one of those big foam puzzle piece mats to put in his room. Preferably one that has the pop out letters and numbers. I'm still on the search for that.

Now I just have ingredients to buy for the party food, make said food, pictures to print, finish the decor, hopefully will get around to making that slideshow (why is that such a daunting task for me??) and enjoy the party!!

Here are some of the pics that were taken last week :)

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to?

I'm such a big boy now!

We had to hide his cars throughout the pics to keep him from crying and ending the whole show

My favorite :)

I love your pics! I just bought his gift today (and Bennett's!) and I think both of you will love it.

for foam mats, have you tried toysRus? Let me know if you need help getting things ready! even if I just need to play with kiddo so you can get stuff done ;)

I love his pics! (And yeah, I'd LOVE to practice on Andrew after Sheila leaves...she is pretty great, though. Big shoes to fill!)

I can't wait for the weekend! I know everything will come together fantastically!!

We got our foam mat at Target, it was toward the back of the toy section, I didn't see it the first time.
