its my party

and i'll cry if i want to...
cry if i want to...
cry if i want to...
you would cry too
if it happened to you.
and that pretty much sums up the first year of mason's life.
i know, i know, what kind of mother takes pictures of her baby while he is so visibly upset?

this one. i think its called something along the lines of "desensitization." i've been dealing with this for a year. that's ONE WHOLE year, people.
so we had a little early birthday party for mason this weekend with family. good times. even for mason.

amidst the drama, he did actually have a great time too. before the tears even dry, he's laughing. don't feel too sorry for him. he's just a little on the manic side.
but we still love him.
and he loves us.
happy birthday, mason. may this next year not be nearly as exhausting as the first.
go get 'em.

You are so cute! I love this post! I used to sing this song with my dad, listening to his old 45's, snuggling up on the floor of our living room.

Here's to a happier baby/toddler in the year ahead!

Happy Birthday sweet Mason! Oh Stephanie, I just love you! I love that you take pictures of Mason crying and that you put them to a song. Way to ride the wave, Mama. Congratulations to you, too ... for making it through the first year! :)
