You are one

I can’t believe that you are ONE. Your birthday was on Sunday so I made you this little dress shirt for the party out of my snail fabric, and I can’t believe how grown up you look!!

You are the sweetest, snuggliest little baby with a silly sense of humor and great conversational skills. I hear you upstairs when you wake up from your nap, heatedly debating foreign policy (or is it your preference for bananas over apples perhaps?) with Curious George in your crib. We can’t understand any of the words, but the way you use inflection and tone is quite dramatic. When Daddy reminded Clementine on Sunday morning that it was your birthday, she said, “Can he talk now?” As if it could happen, just like that, overnight. You’re making progress though, with your noises and your baby signs.

We discovered a first tooth early last week. Check that one off the milestone list. But crawling…welll. That Butt Scoot is probably going to have to do it, because the two times you tried to get into a crawl position, you landed flat on your face on the hardwood floor and you haven’t tried it since.

I love you my little Hugo! Happy Birthday!!!

please don’t post or reuse photos of Hugo. Thanks!

Fabric: Snail Trail from Lotus Pond (still available — and on sale — here at HoneyBeGood, one of my sponsors. Be quick though, not much left!!)

Pattern: I drew this pattern myself, though after I put it all together I realized it’s almost exactly the same pattern as the Sketchbook Shirt by Oliver+S, so buy that one if you want something similar!

  1. Happy birthday little man!! My son Karl hat his first birthday at march 31…we live in Germany and I love your blog. Your son is so adorable… Congrats.

    • thanks Patty! Froliche Geburtstag to your little guy! I seem to remember my German neighbor telling me that I shouldn’t say happy birthday to a German on any day other than the birthday though — is this true?

  2. Happy Birthday Hugo! And even though he didn’t learn to talk overnight, he can digest honey now, like magic! I like to imagine those arbitrary “milestones” like an egg timer. Tick-tick-tick-ding!

  3. I can’t believe he’s already 1! He is such an adorable little guy. I love his little button down shirt and jeans. Happy Birthday, Hugo!

  4. Ohh this is such a sweet post!! Happy Birthday to the li’l guy! He looks awesome in his ‘big man’ clothes ! My own boy will be 1 in a week and I’m so excited!

    • congrats to you, momma! that first year is quite an accomplishment! I actually think the 1st birthday party should be for the mom, not the baby, haha!

  5. So very very cute Master Hugo! Happy birthday! My little miss turns one on Tuesday, and like Hugo had only just got her first tooth in the past week, and is also a bum ‘shuffler’, although these days it is more of a bum ‘leap’. So much more convinent than crawling, you can move and have a hand free to hold your biscuit!

  6. aw hugonaut, you’re one!! how exciting. congrats on making it through that first year of your third baby, rae. no easy feat. haha. he is such a little sweetie pie.

  7. He is so cute. I’d love to hear him talk about foreign policy… and how funny that his sister thought he could suddenly speak now!

  8. He’s just delectable and so very handsome in his new shirt! I have *so* enjoyed watching Hugo get bigger this past year right in step with my own third baby. She’ll be 1 next Friday. What is it about these third kiddos? They’re just so delicious!!! Wish me luck as I conjure up a Geranium in my spare time for her to wear at her party next weekend. 🙂

  9. First, I applaud you for stating that you did not want your baby’s picture copied or reused. I haven’t seen that before as mom’s post such sweet pictures if their loved ones. Second, I love that you talked as to him. Precious for saving! Also, love the shirt and fabric that you chose. It looks so nice on your baby. Beautiful boy. Enjoy your moments with him!

  11. Happy Birthday little man! You must be so proud! He really looks all grown up in his shirt.
    By the way: my third daughter (who is now 14 months old) also did that butt scoot. She learned to crawl after learning to walk. 😉

  12. He is impossibly adorable!! I might have just bought the last bit of the snail trail at Honeybegood! Can’t wait for it to arrive!
