The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Nathan turns ONE!

So hard to believe that this little nugget of love turned one! Nathan - our "Happy and blessed gift from God" - has brought the Saylor household immense joy. We just love our sweet boy, and he has proven to us that the only thing better than TWO boys is THREE! He loves hanging out with his brothers, turning their electronics off and on while they are using them, playing Peek-A-Boo, sucking his thumb, and eating cheese. He likes to save us money on haircuts, too!
We had a small family party to celebrate his big day. I went with the theme of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." It was easy planning his party, as the Internet is full of this theme...lots of cakes and other ideas to take from. See the little caterpillar painting? That is one of my new favorites - it was a group effort. Nathan's handprints made the caterpillar, Sam painted the sun, and Sam and Jack painted all of the polka dots. It is on a canvas and sure makes me smile!

I had more fun making these colorful and whimsy fondant pieces.

I just ran out of time and never did make him his own smash cake. Sorry, little dude. Once he got the 'ole birthday hat off, Nathan loved his cake.  He just kept on going at it.

Nathan with his biggest fans...Bless his heart, Jack wasn't feeling so hot. This was the best "happy face" he could muster up for the camera.
That's all folks!
