I know I spend most of my time on my blog bitching about everything and nothing. Today, I will not be a crab.

Last Friday, my son turned one. In my world, it was just the most special occasion. Sure, he won't remember any of it, but I will. In a selfish way, his huge party was mostly for me. However, I felt like I was celebrating not just because I'm a proud mama, but because I want to celebrate that I have a happy, healthy and amazing little boy. I am blessed in so many ways that I can't even keep track anymore.

For Jack's birthday we took him out for dinner at Applebees- all the pretty waitresses sang him their birthday song as he stared in a mixture of confusion and wonder. The next day was a huge celebration of family. Four generations were present and it was amazing the outpouring of love for our little man. We credit Jack in so many ways for bringing the family together at a time when everyone was growing apart. I want so much for Jack to know all of his cousins, aunts, uncles but most importantly that he got to meet his great-grandmas. I know he'll likely only remember and know that he knew them only from the photos that we show him, but I think it is amazing that they are even still here to celebrate him with us.

It was just a perfect, wonderful weekend. Drama was left at the door. Two different families came together to celebrate a year in the life of my Baby Jack. Thank you my wonderful family for making Jack's first birthday one to remember.
