I had an absolute blast watching these kids play together, crawl all over the place, pull up on everything, stand, shove each other, take each others toys, share snacks and sippy cups, cry, laugh, always look for mommy, get sleepy and just be so stinking cute!! At one point all of the four pack babies (Sam, Raelyn, Lila and Daisy) along with their other buddy Lincoln were all standing around the activity center. I had to take that opportunity to snap a few pictures! Below: Sam is the sweetest baby ever. He is so laid back and mellow. He really loved opening his presents with his mommy! And his biggest fan and four pack buddy Raelyn was nearby to cheer him on as he opened his gift from her. The super cool hat!
Unfortunately, most of the cake pictures I got of Sam are vertical but, this storyboard doesn't really make that possible so these will have to suffice;0. Sam devoured his cupcake in his usually mellow fashion. It was so cute to watch him eat and make a mess. He was only too happy to share some of his dessert with his Daddy. We mom's decided to seize the opportunity before we all headed out to get a group picture with our kiddos. I will have to post some comparison shots of these kids over the past year! They have all grown a lot and it has been such a joy to be share in the memories with these other families!
Sam's mom, Lindsey asked if I would take pictures at Sam's party to capture the memories and I was of course thrilled to do so. I haven't ever photographed a birthday party before and though I wasn't trying to be perfect about my shots, it was a fun challenge. Can't wait to shoot more parties! I loved seeing my little girl enjoy hanging out with her baby friends and knowing that she is old enough to attend birthday parties just blows my mind! Daisy was a total doll the entire night. She played and entertained herself and didn't need much from me at all except to know that I was nearby. It is such a joy to be my little girl's mommy!
