Tonight we celebrated Squish's 1st birthday -- just the 6 of us. A nice, quiet dinner at home, after which the littlest one opened a few little gifts.
BALL! Happy baby!
I wonder what this one is...?
Can't get enough of this smile!
I think the wrapping paper was getting to be too much... silly boy!
A new xylophone!!
Concentrate, silly Squishy!
Time for cake!
Yes, my sweet little one is clapping in the background. What can I say? He gets excited about cake like the rest of us! LOL!
I promise there was a nice piece of cake on this plate... BEFORE Squishy got to it!
YAY for cake!!!
Here he's watching a sweet birthday video from his cousins. He thought it was hilarious!!!
A new bike!
Time for a family bike ride! This new toy from Toys R Us (clearance sale!) should be a great investment. It goes from this setup, where mommy or daddy can steer, to an independent tricycle, to a balance bike! How fun!
It's hard to believe my little 11-month-old woke up this morning and just went to bed as a 1-year-old. ((sigh)) I sure do love those baby days! But I can't wait to see what this little guy gets into in the months ahead. He's a crawling expert, loves to walk with assistance, and can stand independently for a few seconds before falling. He still has only 3 teeth (with the 2nd top one well on it's way), loves to eat everything (except watermelon), nurses twice a day, and can say dada, mama, and uh-oh. He really is the sweetest little thing and I am so grateful for the amazing year we've had, and look forward to all God has in store for his future.
I love my sweet Squishy! Happy Birthday, my darling!
