He had a grand time dressed in his sailor suit and hat (carrying on a tradition started by his father for one year birthdays). The weather was perfectly sunny and breezy. We had a cookout with family and friends in our backyard. My mom was in town for the big day from Tennessee.
I wondered what his reaction would be to his cake. Well, to be honest I think I wondered more what kind of reaction his cake would have on him afterward. He very carefully ran his fingers across the frosting tasting his first sugar goodness. After a few tastes he decided it would be easier just to put his face in it taking out the extra step of using his hands. So fun to watch!
He was shown love by all who came to celebrate with him. It was a great day all around.
Happy 1st year, little boy....here's to a fabulous 2nd!!
