Weekend links

This weekend we moved out of our home, into my parents’ for a few weeks, and — oh yes, celebrated Finn’s first birthday! Where did this year go?

  1. Love that Dr. Seuss quote. You know he’s not even a doctor?

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Finn! I cannot BELIEVE he is a year already. I’m sure your head is just spinning. Thinking of you as you prepare for the big move. LOVED the podcast with Aimee! When the dust settles, I hope to see more pins from you, mama! XO

  3. What a cute pic of him shoving cake in his face. Happy birthday!!

    Hope the move goes well!


  4. Love the photo. You have an adorable child. They grow up so fast. My youngest is going to be 4 this August and my oldest just graduated high school. It seems like just yesterday that they were this young.

  5. Happy Birthday!

  6. Thank you for these links!

  7. We have the same onesie and Caleb turns 1 in two weeks! I remembered we were both enormously pregnant at the same time, but didn’t realize they were so close in age.

    Happy Birthday Finn!

  8. Happy Birthday Finn! And welcome to Oregon Simple Mom family!

  9. thx again for another great “weekend link-up” !!
