The Night Brooks Wore His Wolf Suit...
Ok, it wasn't exactly night time, and his wolf suit was more like white pants and no shirt... but he still made mischief of one kind and another on his first birthday!
My little wild thing turned one this past week and to celebrate we decided to reenact one of his favorite books, Where the Wild Things Are, with a bit of twist. I stopped but our local florist and bought a ton of palm fronds for some natural tropical foliage, and then made our way to Krispy Kreme where I purchased more donuts than I actually needed for this little styled setup. To dress the donuts up just a tad, I made some homemade icing (water, powdered sugar, and a little green dye for some added color). The donut wall was a bit of a challenge, but after finding some thick wooden toothpicks, they hung perfectly against the boards.
Brooks created tons of rumpus as I had my mom and sister entertain him from behind so I could capture these adorable photos for his first birthday. And I think my favorite part pf this smash cake/donut tower photo session is how his belly hangs over his little tight white khaki pants (pants:Janie & Jack)... oh and his little man boobs... those are just too stinkin' cute!
