Brady Michael Bakken is ONE!

One year ago today I was snuggled in a delivery room holding my 8 lb. 2 oz. baby boy Brady Michael Bakken. He has been the most amazing blessing in our lives this past year. He is such a fun loving and crazy kid. It has been one wild ride, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. The first few months were quite an experience to say the least! Brady had colic and oh boy does that test your patience! But we all made it through in one piece :) After that was over Brady was a different baby! He was laughing and giggling and EATING! The kid loves to eat. We have yet to find a food that he turns down! I love that especially since I love to cook, hopefully one day he will appreciate that.
Brady is honestly such a ham and it’s hilarious. He knows just hot to light up a room and put a smile on your face. He is constantly active and always doing something. Whether that’s chasing the cat, chasing her up the stairs and trying to catch her tail, or squeezing the juice out of the watermelon and watching it drip down his belly! I love watching him climb the stairs at church, or crawl under the chairs, and watching the surprised faces when he smiles at them like he knows he is a stinker!
Brady LOVES Mickey Mouse, and so does mom! When Brady is fussy or upset, it’s Mickey Mouse to the rescue. I have no idea what it is about that mouse, but he loves him! So, of course, we had to have a Mickey themed birthday and photo shoot for his big day! 
I seriously can’t believe my baby boy is already ONE! We LOVE you to the moon and back big boy!

Get Our Mickey Mouse ON!

I seriously can't believe our little guy will be one next Thursday!! We will be celebrating this weekend in Utah and gettin' our Mickey Mouse on! This kid is obsessed with Mickey, so we have embraced it!
I MIGHT have gone a little overboard with decorations and food but oh well right? I guess your first child only turns ONE once, so we are gonna do it up BIG! I have been planning this and preparing for almost a month now, so hopefully one day Brady will look back at these pictures and know how much his mommy loved him because this has been WORK! More pictures later from the big bash :)

We are still Alive!

It has been a little crazy around our house this past month! Between the craziness that happened at Novell, State Cup for soccer and the weddings I have had for photography and add in my crazy mobile like no other child, I am POOPED! We didn't have much of a spring in Utah but we made the most of it. Even some pretend indoor swimming adventures :) I have a ton of pictures to share and a cool new video of Brady's latest and greatest! He is growing up so fast and I can't believe the next milestone is our little guy turning ONE! So crazy to me! But check out our last crazy fun month!


We are high rollers and bought Brady his very own indoor pool!

Check out that smile



 Brady is really into the whole pointing thing instead of waiving. I'm a fan!

We LOVE us some Mickey Mouse! & Sharing is caring :)

Love this kiddo!


Tub Time!


We LOVE splashing water and dumping things out of the tub or pool. It's our fave!

Check out those rolls on those wrists! Love em!

 I mean does it get any cuter!!?

And for our final update...We are officially climbing stairs folks! Walking will be right around the corner!
