My baby is one, y’all. March 23, 2015, I am officially the mother of one very determined, curious, adorable one year old! Remember when I told y’all I was pregnant, then found out I was having a boy, his black and white nursery, I almost gave birth in the car, then his first 6 months flew by and now… my baby is one. I really can’t believe it. I know everyone says it, but I’m pretty sure time flies by even faster when you are watching your tiny human grow and learn before your eyes. I seriously feel like I didn’t take enough pictures and videos when he was so little!
We had a party animal themed birthday gathering for him this past weekend, I will share the deets soon (sneak peek!). But, today I wanted to share his one year photo shoot taken by the ever awesome Laura Morsman! (She did a little photo session for us when max was 6 months old too.) The pictures were taken at Castle Hill graffiti park here in Austin. This park is exactly what it sounds like, anyone can buy cans of spray paint and graffiti the cement walls of this park. You can make the trek (it’s a little steep and rocky) to the top and check out Austin’s skyline! Since anyone can come and paint, the art is always changing and you never know what you’ll find. We stumbled upon this little gem on our trip in early March… Perfect for our birthday boy!
Laura brought the adorable chair and I made Maxwell the t-shirt! Look at that sweet face!
Laura is great she is always willing to snap pics on the whim of any idea… I loved this little window and had to get a picture of all of us in it. This park is quirky and it wasn’t exactly easy to just hop up in the window, ha!
I brought a few little props including the monthly blocks!
And Maxwell did what he loves to do and grab the blocks as fast you can put them down!
This is probably my favorite picture of Maxwell from the whole shoot. Oh how I love my sweet baby!
Maxwell got a new mask and tail from the oh so talented, Opposite of Far! We got lots of comments on his adorable mask and tail from park patrons. Side note: This is not a very safe park for little kids. You have to watch their every move! The park is set up with cement terraces that are each 10-12 feet tall. There are no rails or fences and its almost all cement except for this little patch of grass you see in the picture below at the very top of the park.
I’m so happy that Laura got a few really cute pics of the 3 of us! I love how he is holding on to Andy’s shirt.
Oh and I love, love this pic of my little family! Maxwell thinks his tongue (and ours) are pretty neat!
And we even got photo bombed!
There are so many pictures I want to share! I’m trying to narrow it down to my very, very favorites… Tricky business. Just two more, promise!
And my favorite boys on the planet!
And just like that our baby is one. Happy birthday little dude, we love you a bajillion.

hooray! pretty much LOVE that second to last pic of you all looking up, but also the skyline in the background. Congrats on 1 year. It can be sad, but I Promise there are MANY more amazing adventures ahead, kids getting BIG is also fun!!! My oldest (boy, 14) is such a mama’s boy, and I love it!

Thank you, Kristen 🙂 This one thing is so bittersweet! I secretly hope Maxwell is a mama’s boy at 14 too! xo
