Since he's our little monster (in a cute way of course), we had a monster theme celebration.
Ceili Rain deemed herself my kitchen helper on cake baking day. Well, technically she is. Fridays are her day to help me. Either way, if I am in the kitchen she is right there beside me.
Tada! Big monster and baby monster. These were finished around midnight the day before his birthday. The only reason I was able to stay up that late was because a neighbor came over to help me prep and keep me awake to finish them! I think they turned out rather cute.
Obviously this is pre-cake cuteness.
The scrunch nose smile is always a crowd pleaser!
I think someone said cake!
Just checking to make sure it's okay to eat this stuff.
While Malachi feasted, his "friends" and siblings decorated goody bags.
I worked super hard to make Malachi a cute little monster hat (my nieces can vouch for that).
We did our best to get a picture of the hat on the baby. This was the best picture.
And this is how he preferred the hat.
Here are his stats from his 12 month check up.
21 lbs 3 oz (25%)
29 inches tall (27%)
