1 year ago today - a very special little boy was born.
I was lucky enough to have Whitney a huge part of my life during her pregnancy and this past year as East has grown up and I am so thankful for that, her friendship and for her allowing us to be such a big part of thier lives too.
(good find on this quote Whit)
This was the last time we saw Whit with Mr. Easton IN the belly!!
And this was the first time we got to meet him. He was 5 days old! We were smitten. (You bet we would have been there sooner had we not been in BC!)
I can't believe it has been 1 year since that day I got the text that HE ARRIVED! I have it saved on my old cell to this day.
 He is one special little boy.

Saturday we celebrated just that.
Now for some party details...
It was monkey and banana theme!

I was thrilled that Whit let me do up a banner for the party. 
I also made a photo banner that had montly photos from new born to 12 months. He is one cute little guy!!
 Whitney made an amazing layered Banana cake with incredible vanilla cream icing made with real vanilla beans. yum.
 Us with the birthday boy!
 Being goofy!
 Mom & the birthday boy
The proud parents!
I love this lady.
 Getting ready for the lake!!
Could this photo be any cuter!! ek!
 Easton LOVES the water like crazy.

 We love you Easton and feel like 2 very lucky people (and 1 dog) to have you and your parents (and dog!) in our lives.
I had to include these incredible shots of Whit.
Hot mama! ;)
 PS. A HUGE thank you to Whitney for all the awesome photos. :)
