  1. This is such an awesome post and keepsake for Raffi. He’s going to love to read this when he is older and at the rate he is going will be able to read it himself in a couple of months 🙂

    Thanks for sharing! … and great photos.

      @Jen, ….I didn’t make it. I got overwhelmed and scared and decorated a purchased cake. I WILL make a cake soon though!

        @RhodeyGirlTests, Probably all for the best seeing as though he isn’t so thrilled with cake : ) I was just curious cos I ended up going totally overboard with my daughter’s 1st bday cake (22 Sept) and love your ideas.

  6. Raffi is so cute! Look at all the awesome stuff that happens in a year 🙂 Soon enough you’ll be doing a 1 yr update for Baby 2 😉

  7. Happy 12 months to your little man! I love this post, it really will be something for him to look back and enjoy reading one day. Lovely photos!

    Beautiful pictures! Did you guys take them or are they professional?

    I have so much enjoyed reading Raffi’s first year! I can’t wait to see what this year brings for him. 🙂

      @Heather, This photographer Rachel Pearlman took them. She was FANTASTIC with R and had the photos back to us in no time. Look her up – she does newborn shoots!!! Her site link is above at the end of the post.

  9. Such a great post! Adorable little man! Love how assertive he is! Any feeling on what the new baby is?

    It’s so funny reading this, brings me back to when my now 6 year old boy was turning 1. He was a super early walker, he walked at 9 1/2 months, and he wanted NOTHING to do with the stroller or anything by 1 year. It was a little crazy. He wanted to walk and climb and jump over everything himself. Walks around the neighborhood took us a very, very long time. Now my daughter is 2 1/2 and she is soooo different. She has absolutely no interest in walking around the ‘hood by herself. She loves being carried and babied and pushed in the stroller. So interesting. Thanks for bringing me back!

  11. um, i’m totally crying right now – how can he truly be a whole year old now?! the cake picture is hysterical!

  12. Happy Birthday Raffi….. but super duper congratulations on the new baby!!!!! Weekly pregnancy posts? please….

  13. Happy 12 months to Raffi – I love that I have watched him grow and you’ve given me a foreshadowing into my child’s next steps. I love these updates.
