Today is Sawyer’s first birthday! What?! I absolutely can’t believe it has already been a year since he was born! Where in the world did the time go? However, I feel so excited because he has learned so much and is always such a happy boy! It’s crazy how even the simplest things are so exciting when it is your own child. Something like pointing to an object may not seem like that big of a deal to most people but when you are the one to raise them and see them go through a phase of only eating, pooping and burping and all of a sudden they’re communicating! It’s HUGE!
It’s very funny actually, I have recently noticed that there are many conversations like this in our house; Sawyer: “baadaaaaaaay.” Me to my husband: “oh my gosh…oh my gosh! Did you hear that? He said BATH TIME!!” My husband: “I think that’s a reach, hun.”
At one year he is now walking, saying a few words, laughs all the time, points at things and is showing so much personality now! In fact, he is even getting a bit sassy. Giving dirty looks or yanking MY phone away from me when I try to take it back from him. He can be quite a stinker but he is SO much fun! I love spending my days with him.
1 Year Old! Happy First Birthday to my amazing little guy! ❤
Today is my son’s very FIRST birthday!! I wanted to start out the day extra special by making him some birthday pancakes!
These were super quick and easy to make and taste delicious too! Of course I knew he would only have a few bites so…oh, darn! More for mommy! 😛
Pomegranate Birthday Pancakes N’ Berries
For the pancakes I just used a simple plain pancake recipe from FoodNetwork.com found HERE.
Here is the recipe from Food Network Kitchen
-1 C flour
-1 Tbsp Sugar
-1tsp baking powder
-1/2tsp baking soda
-dash of salt
-1 C buttermilk
-3 Tbsp melted butter
Beat all ingredients together well. Heat up a skillet sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour small amounts of pancake batter into the pan at a time. I added sprinkles to each pancake. Add whatever fruit or toppings you would like! I chose strawberries and blueberries! Blueberries are my son’s absolute favorite so he of course picked all of those off right away! I think he would just continue to eat blueberries for as long as I gave them to him!
For the syrup I reduced pomegranate juice (bring to a simmer until it reaches a syrupy consistency) then added maple syrup for a pomegranate maple syrup. I had never tried this before (usually just stick to good ol’ maple syrup) but it was really delicious!
