First trip to the zoo

In honor of Brecken's first birthday, we took him to a small, local zoo the day before he turned one. The zoo is pretty small but it was perfect for a young toddler's attention span. Because it was a very hot afternoon, alot of the animals were snoozing and chilling out in the shade, so some were hard to see. All the animals at the zoo are Minnesota animals, including birds, otters, foxes, farm animals and the favorite of the day: the black bear. I think Brecken had fun on his first trip to the zoo!

12 months

I can't believe that my sweet baby boy is a year old! Gone are the days of him being a baby, he is now a toddler. Just two weeks ago, he has started toddling around everywhere. It is the cutest little stumbly walk. I absolutely love it. He is getting faster all the time and gets into more stuff. He is starting to say a few words such as Bella (the dog), ball, and mamamama (but I don't think he knows that I am mama). 

When we went to his 12 month appointment, his height was in the 67th percentile at 30 inches and in the 9th percentile for his weight at 19 1/2 pounds. He is still a little peanut.

Here is a year of pictures - from month one to month twelve. It is just crazy how much he has grown up in a year. I decided that I want to continue to do the monthly pictures til he is two since he will change alot in this next year.

Brecken's 1st Birthday Bash

Two weeks ago, we celebrated Brecken's first birthday party. It was a fun night with family and friends, food, lots of cake, and lots of ducks (it was a duck themed party!). I will post more about the decorations and food more later... but for now, here is the summary of the party in pictures.
