- A party for a beloved one-year-old. Monroe's mom took pictures of him every monthly anniversary of his birth and strung them up for his party. An inspired idea.
- As is tradition in our family for a first birthday party, he was allowed to eat this little cake with his fingers. He delicately picked off pieces and ate them, probably wondering when someone would stop him.
Favorite moment of the weekend: Sitting down in my grandmother's rocking chair in his bedroom, while his mom gets him ready for church. He toddles over, picks up a book and hands it to me. He sits in my lap and lets me read to him for about two minutes and then is down and off again.
