First Birthday Party

We traveled to Birmingham for Jack's official first birthday party. He had a fantastic time and loved seeing all of you who came. He is playing with all of his new things everyday and is loving every minute. I can't believe it has already been a year, wow, a one year old boy!!!

Birthday Boy!!!

Today, July 14, 2009, known amongst the French as Bastille Day, young Jack Halligan Boehm became a "one-year-old big boy."

How old is Jack?

Been a crazy year, the best of our lives. He hasn't said as much, but I'm fairly certain it's been Jack's best, too.

Early this morning, we burst into his room with a sleepy rendition of Happy Birthday (we haven't learned "Le Marseillaise" yet), then rushed out to open some presents. Jack suggested a trip to the zoo and Leslie and I thought, "What a great idea!" As you can see, it was a right nice time. We capped the day off with a Toys R' Us trip, where Jack joined Geoffrey's Birthday Club and heard the employees sing him "Happy Birthday" over the PA. Back at home, we played with his brand new mini-house (thanks Grumpy and May!), ate a tasty b-day dinner, and practiced his latest skill: competitive speed-walking.

Happy Birthday, little buddy! Walk on!

Some Recent Pics from around Columbia

Hi, all. Leslie's taking a brief (and unwilling) break from blog updates. That's right... thankfully for all of you, DADDY'S BACK!

These are some of my favorite pictures from the last few weeks around Columbia. As you can see, Jack's now a bicycle co-pilot, a tooth-brushing fanatic, a sometimes drunk, and a rabid Alabama fan eager for Saban, Round 3. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
