Sam is one today. I can hardly believe it. First birthdays are so funny, because they are such a big deal to the parents, while the child has no idea the day is different from any other.
In our family, Aaron always hand-designs our kids' birthday cakes, and this was his first year to design a cake for Sam. The theme of Sam's birthday is dogs, so the cake design is obvious.
Sam is such a happy little boy--he loves to explore the world around him, he keeps up with his sister (believe it or not) and he has a very obvious spirit of adventure.
Happy First Birthday, Samuel Nathan Russell!
