Billy's 1st Birthday

This post will most likely make non dog lovers puke. All others, enjoy!

We've been counting down to April 21st for months now. The momentous day that our little puppy boy would turn one year old. Billy has been a part of our family since the very start! 8 days after our wedding Billy joined our newly established family and has brought us incredible joy ever since.

As most of you know, this November our family will be growing again by one new member. Not the fury type this time but an actual flesh of our flesh baby girl or boy. Clearly our world will change dramatically and that means sweet little Billy will have to take a bit of a backseat. That's why we wanted to really celebrate his birthday this year because who knows what life will be like next April 21st.

Plus, he deserves to have a day devoted entirely to his happiness. We watched Lady and the Tramp as a family- which by the way is a perfect movie considering that in the movie Jim Dear and Darling as a couple love Lady tremendously but then things change once the baby comes. In the end they still love Lady very much and I know that will be the case for us as well.

After the movie we sang happy birthday to Billy and let him devour a mini angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. He was in doggy heaven. As for his gift we gave him a gnarly meaty bone which he completely enjoyed. He was a happy boy all day. Most of all he loved all the attention we showered upon him. He is one loved little pup.

Happy Birthday sweet boy. Thank you for bringing so much joy into our lives!

I made two videos to commemorate the day. One is of his actual birthday celebration and the other is a compilation of photos from his first year of life. I'm fully aware that aside from us and my parents no one will appreciate these videos very much but for the purposes of posterity its important to remember this time in our lives with our only sweet baby boy.

This is precious! Love that you all watched lady and the tramp! I can completely relate...for our dog's first birthday we threw a shindig...mailed out invites to our doggie friends, had doggie cake, doggie favors and doggie party hats. All of the dogs (7 total) got along except for my sister's geriatric lab. She was a bit grumpy :)

Excited for you and your impending arrival! Huge Congrats!
