Happy * 1st * Birthday Nolan - Part 2

The day following Nolan's Birthday, we decided to let him smash his cake.
We were careful not to let him really eat much of the sugary substance,
but rather let him make a good old fashioned chocolate mess!
Before        &        After      

Typically, Nolan puts EVERYTHING in his mouth like any other 12 month old baby.
{Buttons, shoes, stickers, dirt, and some occasional food found on the floor.}

Now that we actually wanted him to eat it/make a mess, he wasn't having it.
What these photos don't depict is just how long it took... he clearly wasn't in a hurry.

                I was so thankful once again to have my friend Liz as a backup photographer. 
Believe it or not, these pictures were taken by both of us and meshed together. 

Betcha' didn't even notice. 
Our styles are so similar it's scary. 
She 'gets' my crooked angles; if only she lived 6 hours closer.
A girl can dream, right?

It's amazing how much he looks like Kensley in these pictures! The eyes and the smile are so close to identical! Give him some birthday kisses from me!
