It has been a busy, exciting, overwhelming, exhausting and joyous year that I can't believe we all survived!
My son Ansel James Ji-Woo Kim is officially a year old!
Ansel is so very sweet, he loves food, loves to laugh, dance (he does a mean chicken dance with only one arm), he sleeps through the night (finally), has 7 teeth, says Uh Oh so sweetly, is always smiling, and is taking steps like crazy. He is obsessed with his older sisters, though they are more obsessed with him and love to pick him up and carry him everywhere. He lights up any room and will go to you if Mom is near.
I photographed his sisters every month, but never had a theme. Before Ansel was born, I bought a wooden toy camera from Windy City Bebe and a camera swaddle from Spearmint that I decided to use for his milestone photos. I also bought a camera onesie at Wolfbait & B-Girls that I incorporated when it started to fit.
Here are all of his milestones, from 1 day old to 2 weeks before he turned 1.
(One thing I wish I had kept consistent was where I photographed him. To be honest most months I forgot until the day he got older.... I felt a lot of pressure doing it, but am grateful to have this montage.)
Now for his cake smash, delicious and awesome cake by Chicago Custom Cakes. We did his cake smash on Thanksgiving with my whole family watching him. It was a great experience for me since we didn't do one for Viola and I was the only one present for Oona's. Ansel ate his cake very politely and loved the attention he was given by all.
Can't wait until later today to eat another one :)
