One Year Old

Wednesday, April 18, 2012


Today is my little boy's first birthday! One year ago, Rhys came flying into the world so fast that my doctor only had enough time to hold her hands out to catch him. I guess he was in as much of a hurry to meet me as I was to meet him! I really loved sharing my pregnancy, his birth and his first year of life on my blog. I'm so proud of my little Rhys.

just one day old and 6 pounds!
about 2 months pregnant


He's such a funny little person. He's a snuggle bug but loves rough housing and wrestling with daddy. He's climbing the stairs, learning to use a fork, walking (and running) and imitating funny things like sneezes. He loves peaches and doesn't like ice cream. One of his favorite things is when I build a tent out of blankets so he and Olivia can run in and out of it, shrieking like a couple of lunatics. Since Olivia couldn't say "Rhys" at first, she called him "Beets" or "Preetz" and both nicknames stuck.





Wearing vintage while pregnant was a challenge but I had a lot of fun with it! These are some of my favorite "maternity" outfits while I was pregnant with Rhys.
this nautical dress from an estate sale had elastic in the waist
a modern jersey dress with 30's jacket

pinafore and cardigan
50's dress from Amanda. Not meant for a belly bump but it works!
If you missed my other vintage maternity/nursing outfits and adventures in pregnancy, you can see them here

We're celebrating Beets's first birthday on Saturday with a family filled mustache bash. I've been working all week to get ready for his party, hence the lack of blogging. Stay tuned for pics of that!

  1. That's cute about his nickname. I have a friend whose daughter Ruth's nickname was Juicy for a while because her older daughter couldn't say Ruth, but she's mostly grown out of it now.

  2. Happy Birthday to Rhys! A friend growing up couldn't say her little sister Colleen's name, it came out as Weenie, and that stuck. I suspect she grew out of that one. ;)

  4. Weenie and Juicy! That's so adorable!! She calls all of her baby toys "beetsie (whatever) like beetsie bear or beetsie puppy because all babies are like Rhys in her eyes. She had a mommy swan and baby swan toy but she cant say swan either so it was "Beetsie Wan" so now I call him Beetsie-wan all the time!

  21. Darling little Rhys, it's hard to believe that you're a year old already! It's been such an immense joy watching you and your mommy throughout your little life. Wishing you every happiness in the world, precious child, and a year ahead that sparkles with nothing but fun! :)

    And speaking of birthdays, thank you very much, sweet Brittany, for your comment on my post about Chronically Vintage's 3rd blogaversary. I adore your version of that Jell-o cake recipe (orange + whipped cream = a super yummy creamsicle, in my books), thanks so much for sharing it with me.


    Huge hugs & joyful wishes to you both,
    ♥ Jessica

  27. I really do love how you kept your unique style throughout pregnancy, even though it is a time when most ladies want to be barefoot and in trackpants! Your little beet looks adorable. It is amazing how fast they grow and develop!

  28. What a cute theme for a party! This post just made me so happy!

  29. You were blooming through your pregnancy. Beautiful, and so is your little man and lady. But I have to say I LOVE you as a brunette. It makes you look so perky and fresh, and some how more vintage in a 30s 40s sort of way. Really shows off your alabaster skin so well, luck girl.

    Think I'm past the date of a simple change of hair color doing that for me! :(
