my sweetest finley kai, the moment you came into this world you changed it for the better. your daddy, brother, and i cannot imagine doing life without you by our side. you bring happiness and pure joy into our home. it has been the biggest blessing watching you grow and show us who you really are over the past year. happy first birthday, baby boy. we love you so, so much. more than you’ll ever know.
on your first birthday you were greeted with balloons and french toast when you first woke up, which was well after 9:30am might i add. you definitely know how to get a birthday day started! we fed monkeys cheerios, pet camels [although that kind of scared you], mooed with the cows, and chased after prairie dogs at the zoo. golden hour boat rides for mexican was how we did dinner. more birthday songs were sang and we finished the night with a sweet treat of cake +berries +whipped cream. you had the happiest day. and i had the happiest time celebrating you.
