The first year is full of so many milestones, topping it off with a cake smash seems to be the best way to close out the year. Bridger is ONE. He is so full of joy + love. His life is a gift + I can't wait to see the gifts he brings to this world as he grows. He's so loved by his big brothers, especially when they get to join in on his cake smash fun.
Bridger's beautiful cake is from Sit By Me Bakery. This vegan cake is totally delicious. My kids wish they could survive off of this cake alone.
It's often a misconception that baking without ingredients means taste will be sacrificed, but not here! This cake is free from gluten, dairy, eggs + free from all of the top 8 allergens, actually + it tastes amazing. Hey, it's even a little healthy: this cake is made with apples + bananas.
Bridger is my 3rd boy! So, I sure know how fast the first year flies by. I'm so thankful Kathleen Peachey captured these beautiful moments from this first birthday milestone. I feel like this photo completely captures each of the boys personalities. A huge heart + a silly heart + a heart that really wants to eat more of his first cake. With a house full of boys, there is always something going on + these big personalities sure do keep things interesting!
I love that Sit By Me Bakery provides stunning cakes that are perfect for any occasion. Yet, full of high quality ingredients that matter to me as a mom. Apples + bananas in here?! Yes, please!
His tiny hands will never be this tiny again. His days are full of exploration + adventure. Maybe the sayings are true, I think boys really might be made to get dirty. Especially when it involves cake.
Dear Bridger, I want you to know that you are loved + treasured. We are so thankful to have to in our family. Here you are sitting in the same highchair I had as a baby. You are our sunshine when skies are grey.
The great thing about being the youngest brother is that Bridger has two big brothers to show him lots of love. They also teach him lots of tricks. He's on the go + into so many things. But, hey, I guess I'm completely used to chaos at this point.
I love how this black + white photo pulls me right into the emotion of this moment.
Bridget's Deep, dark eyes pull me in every time. Breck + Bridger have a special connection. Breck is a great older brother. He loves Bridger deeply + can take great care of him. Breck gets very frusturated when Bridger knocks over his trash village. Otherwise, they sure have lots of fun together.
I can feel Breck's gentle love he is showing to Bridger in this black + white photo by Kathleen Peachey.
It's all in the details.
Brotherly love. There's nothing like it.
This beautiful blue is all natural. No artificial dyes here.
My favorite kind of mess. A happy mess.
Happy 1st birthday to you.
Mommy, Daddy, Breck + Bowan.
