Sugar High

We ate dinner last night at Mama's Meatballs to celebrate Wyatt's birthday. Wyatt was treated to a Torta Golosa, a chocolate sponge cake filled with peaches, yogurt, ricotta cheese and whipped cream. He wasn't too sure about it at first but it may have been the surprise of the flame on top.
He knew he'd tasted love after his first bite of freshly whipped cream.
And there was no turning back.

He didn't finish off the cake but my hunch is that he would have if we'd given him the opportunity.

Before and After

Wyatt will be turning one tomorrow and that seemed like a good reason for his first haircut. Thanks to Supercuts, we now know he cleans up real nice. Here's a shaggy before shot:And here are a couple of after shots:
In case you're curious, his pajamas read "I Heart My World" but the image of the globe usually gets lost under his belly when seated.
For those of you wondering if your birthday party invitation got lost in the mail, don't worry, it didn't. We're simply having a little gathering on Saturday with our parents and siblings and my goal is take at least one picture.

I'm grateful that Wyatt is finally turning one. I knew this day would come but six months ago it felt like an eternity away. I'm not one of those it-pains-me-to-put-away-tiny-clothes/where-has-the-time-gone kind of moms (at least not yet). Today I am simply glad we've all made it through this first year of his life and beginning to appreciate the fact that life does not operate like my dvr and allow me to fast forward the utterly mundane moments or rewind to relive the beautiful parts.

Happy Birthday, Garett

We spent Garett's 33rd birthday with a few friends at La Parisienne, a little French bakery, in Morro Bay. Afterwards, we took a walk past the rock to the jetty and Todd took this picture with his cool iphone. This was Wyatt's first trip in the backpack and he made it almost two hours.
