Alec Turns ONE!


It’s hard to believe one year has already come and gone. Our little sweet boy has changed so much and has only grown cuter and sweeter each day!


We had a very simple, low-key birthday celebration for little Alec. It was a very busy Wednesday, but we made sure to do plenty to shower the birthday boy with love.

The girls insisted he open a gift the moment he woke up. He was so excited and loved the gifts from his grandma and grandpa Johanson!


After the bedhead was taken care of, Alec and I had a little birthday photo-shoot in the yard. All he wanted to do was run around and play, and he wasn’t interested at ALL in doing pictures. Luckily I was able to capture a few good ones. Well…it’s actually not that hard to get good ones of this boy! He’s so cute!!!


The day was a busy one, but I so enjoyed running around with my new one year old! At his one year appointment, he weighed in at 19 pounds and stood at 31 inches. He has always been on the tall side. We’ll see if he ends up staying tall!


After dinner, we presented the birthday boy with his very own and very first cake. At first he was interested in little tastes, but he did NOT like his hands being sticky. He didn’t end up eating much of his cake…which meant his mom ended up eating a lot of his cake…



We did more gifts after cake. Alec loved his dumptruck from his Uncle Matt and Aunt Mary (and family) and his dinosaurs from his sisters.



He started the day with a gift from his Johanson grandparents, and ended the day with some PJs from his Grandma Marshall. We love CARS in this family!


The birthday boy had a great day. Thank you to everyone who sent gifts, cards, calls or texts. He is one special boy. He really is so sweet. This past year with him has one of the best of our life. We love you Alec! Thank you for being born!
