One is so fun. There's just something about that very first birthday that is so magical. Maybe it's because life is still so new and there is so much to explore.
On June 14, Baby "D" turned one.
We dressed him in his flag shirt (June 14 is flag day...I love that it's his birthday too!),
And went out and got him a birthday balloon.
He wasn't sure what to think of the balloon at first. He was very afraid of it in the car, but he warmed up to it. We tied it to his high chair so he could grab it and "bang" it often!
He got a few presents. A new umbrella stroller was at the top of the list! (who made this birthday list anyway?)
But I think he likes it.
He also got some other stuff: A new hat (that he refuses to keep on) and a boat from his sisters.
My favorite part was the cake. I made him a flag cake (hmm...wonder howmany of these he will get in his lifetime!)
I love the look of pure excitement in his eyes, you can just see him asking, "Wow, what is this!"
Only to be superseded by the joy of eating!
Yea for one! It's going to be a great year!
