Brody’s 1st Birthday- A Baseball Party

Well, since Brody's first birthday happened to fall during MLB's Opening Week, we thought it was only appropriate (especially for our family) to do an Opening Day baseball theme. My brother cooked up a sweet logo from the official MLB one, and the rest is history.

{I added a thank-you line to it to use it on our party favors.}

what's a baseball party without hot dogs {nitrate-free, of course} and lemonade?

He's not usually this patient in the high chair.

He started slow {with one sprinkle, no joke}.

But then, wasn't afraid to go for it!

{This funny little outfit he's wearing was Daddy's, almost 30 years ago! The shorts may be short but it's so cute!}

It was really special to have so many friends and family members be there, and also for Brody's birthparents to come, too. We loved getting to finally introduce them to our family.

It was truly a special day, celebrated on Bro's Adoption Day even! We have been so blessed to have him part of our family for this last year and can't imagine our family any other way.
