holy crap a year goes by fast. Happy Birthday Henry! :)

Jess said...

I can't even BELIEVE it's already been a year. But I swear he's even cuter now than he was then.

Jennifer said...

Happy Birthday, little man!

Every time you post a picture of Henry it makes me smile! Something about his expression is always so cheerful (although I'm sure he has his moments!)

Shannon said...

*sniff*.

He is adorable. I don't like to think about our babies growing up.

donna said...

Happy Birthday Henry! What a big boy!

AndreAnna said...

Ugh, a year already! My baby just turned two and I swear someone stole some time from me. I keep promising myself that when Sawyer is born in a few weeks, I'll figure out a way to slow down time.

Sundry said...

I think he looks like a CRAFTY child. Also: eyeball-searingly cute.

Maggie said...

Happy Birthday Henry! And holy smokes, could he BE any cuter?!

Beth A. said...

Happy birthday Henry! What an adorable big boy.

moo said...

UNBELIEVABLE.

How can it be a year already? It does NOT seem possible!

Sam said...

Happy birthday, Henry! And yes, holy moly, a year does go by far too quickly - and he looks just chock full of mischief.

the planet of janet said...

it goes so fast. treasure it all...

happy birthday, henry!

Jess said...

Oh! I didn't know Henry was born on the thirty first! Today's my Claire's birthday too!! She's two! And I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S GONE SO FAST!! Sweet pictures of the Henry's. How is he so big already?

desperate housewife said...

Oh, he's so scrumptious. And Linda's right, he DOES look a bit crafty. In the best sense, obv.
And also, SNIFF. Because this is just another grim reminder that in three short months MY baby will be a year old too. WTF? Wasn't I just wandering around like a beached whale complaining to anyone who would listen to me about being pregnant? And now I'm feeling (whisper) baby lust again? NOOOO!!!
Not that I have to tell YOU. I'm sure you're plotting about another one!

aibee said...

Happy Birthday Henry!

and Happy Henry's Birthday, Swistle and SwistleFamily.

My goodness, he's almost in College.

Because I really believe they grow up that fast.

BECAUSE THEY DO.

The ingrates.

Shelly Overlook said...

How is that possible? Henry, slow down!!!

Swistle said...

Jennifer- He's a verrrry good-natured baby. To the point of me wondering if he's going to be one of those "Duuuuuuuude!" guys as an adult, lounging around in a swimsuit all day, with a beer and kickin' tunes.

Sundry- He is a wily opportunist: if we're playing in the child-safe room, and someone opens the door, he is silent and fast and out of there before you can say "Close the d..."

Desperate- Oh, I know, right? I'm TOTALLY planning the next one. I don't quite know how to bring up the subject with Paul, though.

Welcome to our World said...

I let out an audible AWWWW at both photos!

WOW, a year! Happy 1st Birthday!

Leeann said...

Dang, he was a cute new born! Lucky for you, he is even cuter as a toddler.

You are most definitely blessed!

Leeann

euqort said...

Oh, he is and was so beautiful. That was so quick. I started reading you when you were pregnant with him. Whoosh.

Happy birthday beautiful Henry.

Kristin.... said...

Oh Happy Birthday Henry. My gosh he's adorable!

Erica said...

When Maddie was first born, it seemed like every good-natured old lady told me "enjoy it while you can... they grow up so fast!" I would inwardly roll my eyes and think they were sweet. And OLD.

Then she was born and started eating and rolling over and crawling and walking and talking ALL IN THE SAME DAY. People have tried to convince me that 16 months have passed, but they haven't. My girl was born YESTERDAY.

Happy Birthday, little Henry. Don't grow up too fast, k?

Rebecca said...

Already a year?  OMG!!!!!

Chraycee said...

Wowza Swistle! I knew Henry and JB's birthdays were close, but I didn't realize HOW close! JB will be 1 on Friday. I've been perusing all the photos from the past year too. I took 4 photos and photoshopped them into a vignette and made that the invitation to her party. One from the day we brought her home, one of the first time she held her own bottle, a halloween shot and her 9 month/easter pic. It is super cute.

Well Henry (you cute cute CUTE little boy!) JB and I wish you a very happy birthday! Now when I figure out how to slow you two down I'll let your mommy in on my secret!

Jen In MI said...

Happy Happy Birthday, Henry!

My "baby" will be 3 soon! Your twins, too, right? Where does the time go?

stephanie said...

omg he makes my ovaries skip a beat. ILOVEHIM! happy birthday, henry!

Amy said...

Seriously? A year? Happy Birthday, Henry!

the new girl said...

I KNOW!

I can't believe it's been a year already.

And Henry? With that hair? And those eyes? And that expression?

Just sqeeeeezable.

Anonymous said...

He's gorgeous! You lucky lady, so much cuteness in your house.
Hope he has a happy birthday!

JMC said...

I was JUST telling my sister-in-law that I was SO SO DONE. Four is enough! That even seeing the new babies that another sister-in-law had and my oldest niece had did NOT make me wish for another tiny newborn. But there's something about THAT newborn picture. I can't put my finger on it, but it gave me the slightest twinge of desire for another tiny newborn. I am now off to deal with the other four bickering to convince myself otherwise.

Betsy said...

Happy birthday, Henry! What a beautiful boy -- those eyes, they're intoxicating!

Dr. Maureen said...

What a cutie! Happy birthday, Henry!

Nowheymama said...

It has NOT been a year since Henry was born and you were telling me that my surprise pregnancy was going to turn out fine. (Which of course it totally did.) This makes me weepy.

Happy Birthday, Henry.

Christine said...

OH my goodness! I can't believe a year has gone by.

Happy Birthday handsome!

Man, Swistle, you make some adorable babies.

fairydogmother said...

How dare Henry get so much bigger and so much more adorable than he already was so quickly! I can't believe it has been a year already.

Also, is it just me or does he look like he is in the midst of planning some sort of cheerio caper in that second photo?

d e v a n said...

Happy Birthday to Henry! OMG - he is seriously not one yet is he?! You must be kidding...

He sure is cute!

Shoeaddict said...

Awwwwwwwww! Congrats and Happy Birthday

Betty M said...

Happy Birthday! He is adorable at 1day and at 365.

Ellen said...

Yes, rude, but oh boy darn cute.

Jen4 @ Amazing Trips said...

*sob*

Happy Birthday little guy. I hope that your mom is doing well with this anniversary...

Cristina Mathers said...

happy birthday! what a sweet boy!

Meegan said...

You made me cry! Ok, it's not hard to do given that I am 28 weeks pregnant, but still. I can't believe my little baby girl is 21 months old. And I can't believe that I'm going to have another teeny tiny baby. Thanks for reminding me of the JOY of babies. Sometimes I'm so terrified of having another one, I forget.

Happy Birthday Big Guy!

Katie said...

THE NERVE of these children to DO THIS TO US. We lovers of newborns are NOT OKAY WITH THIS GROWING UP THING!!!

Happy Birthday, Henry!

Linda said...

Oh sniffly sigh.

Happy Birthday, Henry!

Tessie said...

Oh, oh, OH! Happy Birthday Henry!

Also, you are now FRESH OUT of BABIES!

WHAT TO DO?

Hope you had a great day.

Jill said...

I came here to say "holy jeez, one year already??" but I see it's been said. Haha. Happy Birthday, Henry! Aren't May babies the best?

Pickles & Dimes said...

Happy birthday, Henry!

He is so cute. And he's definitely going to be a schemer when he gets older. The eyes say so. :)

suddensilence said...

It's been a year already?! Oh my gosh! Happy (belated) birthday to Henry!! :-)

Oh Swistle...if you want a heartbreaker, wait til they turn 18. My baby boy turns 18 tomorrow and it's just not even fathomable to me.

BTW, Henry is absolutely adorable -- what a cutie pie!!

Alice said...

how has it been a year already!??! happy birthday to the excessively cute boy :-)

Sarah said...

He is absolutely adorable. I could eat him up!

Shelly said...

That is the MOST GORGEOUS newborn picture I've ever seen. Was it professionally done? And Henry is such a little sweetheart. He is just beautiful. Happy Birthday sweet little boy!

desperate housewife said...

Came back to read the comments and Tessie's had me rolling. WHAT TO DO? I bet Swistle knows!

Jess said...

Oh my gosh...what a cutie.
Time flies.
Happy Birthday little dude!!!!

Saly said...

How has it been a whole year? Happy Birthday Henry!!!!

Swistle said...

Shelly- Why thank you! I took it my own self! My dad photoshopped out the "Angelica" (brand name of linens or of linen service?) before I sent it out with the birth announcements.

skiplovey said...

Happy (belated) Birthday Henry! Just ask (or cuter) than the day he was born.
Hey our little fellas are almost the same age!

nicole said...

Definitely one of the cutest babies on the planet.

Kathryn said...

Cute! He looks a lot like Edward!

tulipmom said...

Already??

Happy Birthday Henry! What a cutie!

Now excuse me while I go figure out how to freeze time.

Misguided Mommy said...

wtf when did he turn one...hes still supposed to be only 6 months old. waitmy kid is six months old nooooooooooooo stop growing

but seriously in my head he was still only about 6 months old.

Sam said...

I always tell my son, "Hey, I thought I told you to stop growing?" But for some reason he doesn't listen to me, must get that from his father.
Happy Birthday Henry!

rebcram said...

What a cute boy! My baby is already four months old and I have caught a case of the Time Passes So Fast, Before I Know It She'll Be A Year Old Syndrome.

Marie Green said...

These are my least favorite kinds of posts, in a good way, if that makes sense. But I really get... sick??- is that the word?- when I see time just slip away like that. I'm def. going to be one of those moms who will always remark at "how fast they grow" etc, etc, even when my own babies are adults. Because it's true. And also because I LOVE BABIES.

Happy Birthday, sweet Henry. Oh, how I am shocked that you are a year old already.

Emily said...

Oooh! He's grown so much. And so fast! I started reading your blog just before he was born and I can't believe it's been a year already.

Jenni said...

So handsome!

Mommy Daisy said...

Wait...I thought that WAS yesterday! Wow, time flies!

Happy Birthday Henry!
