What a week…what a year!

I can’t believe that my son just turned ONE years old!!!  It seems like only yesterday he was all bundled up in the hospital blankets like a little baby burrito…and now he’s officially a toddler.  Wow!  This year truly has flown by, and although it hasn’t been easy, it has DEFINITELY been worth it!  Worth every sleepless night and every extra pound of weight for each and every second that I get to spend with him and see his beautiful, innocent, and perfect  smile.

As you know – along with Maxx turning one, also comes his first birthday party!!!  And of course, I wanted to make everything just right…including his cake(s) (with the help of Grandma) ;). And what fun is making cake if you don’t taste it along the way! (hehe)

I have to say, I absolutely did indulge and throw caution to the wind and was a little timid to weigh in this morning.  But, to my surprise (and delight), the scale didn’t budge an ounce!  Yay!  So, no weight loss this week – but a whirlwind of a year all wrapped up into a perfect first birthday party that was absolutely worth a week of no weight-loss but happiness, nonetheless!  🙂

    I agree with you that! On special occasion like this everybody should celebrate (with cake or other) even if it means no pound lost or even +1.
