Happy Birthday My Sweet Boy

Happy first birthday my little man. You are a sweet wonderful headstrong little boy. You are so so strong, unfortunately you do not realize how to control your strength yet, but you will, and I will finally enjoy gentle touches from you :). You play so well by yourself and with your brother. You play some contentedly by yourself that sometimes people don't realize you are in the room for a while. You explore everything and figure so much out on your own. God forbid I try to help you figure something out, hand over hand work often sends you into a bit of a tizzy. You definitely have strong opinions about how things should be and do not appreciate being told otherwise. You as quick to smile as you are to express displeasure in something though and as long as things are going your way, the world is perfect and you are happy and laughing. You are a fantastic sleeper, you sleep any where and have been sleeping through the night forever. For everything that I have written until this point, you really are a very easy baby, and a good baby. For as independent as you are you like to cuddle, so that makes me happy. Love your brother Quinn so much, constantly watching everything he does and wanting to be around him. Luckily, Quinn likes to have you around too, why wouldn't he you laugh at everything he does.
Developmentally you are right where you should be, you started walking about 3 weeks ago, you are babbling away and you say mama and dada. Mama also means more food. Oh yeah, did I mention how much you love food, so since mama and food are one in the same I'm guessing you love me lots :). OK, you size is still of the charts you are the size of a 2 year old. I am still completely amazed by your appearance with your blond hair and blue eyes, so amazing. I love you my little man, I'm so lad you joined our family. We are so blessed that you joined us and we will love you always.

So on to the birthday photos.

I think he just caught sight of his cake! Cute boy.

We changed his shirt just in case this got messy.

I made his cake. I wanted to make it more seasonal, but I'm not as talented as Auntie Karra. She made him an elf cake with his face on it. I'll post that later.

First bite. I put it down in front of him, but he just looked at it. Guess he wanted to be pampered a bit on his big day.

Or, maybe he just didn't want the plate.

Or just isn't a fan of cake.

Oh, that's where the plate goes.

Final results. He really didn't make a mess. Way to go Wes.

Gifts too?

Thanks Grandma.

This is great.

Birthdays are great. Thanks everyone!!!
