Today is my baby’s first birthday! Yesterday, though, was the day we celebrated with family since Jonathan has school on Monday nights. All in all, I think it was a very successful celebration. He was happy (for the most part), liked all of his presents, and did not disappoint when it came to the cake eating 🙂
Family shot on the big day!

The party food
I made a birthday banner. One picture for each month. Thanks to my mother-in-law, Bekcy, for all of the monkey pictures this year!
A close up. The one year picture on top--compliments of my sister, Mariah.
Happy Birthday, "Spud"y! A little creepy-looking? Perhaps. But Liam loved it.
Liam checking out the cake for the first time.
My first attempt at cake pops!

Feeling sad about the birthday hat. But, oh so cute!
Some of the party guests: Uncle Tim (Tunkle), Daddy, Omi, Mommy, and Aunt Merrill
Why is everyone singing??
...and the nose goes first. Just as I predicted 🙂
Mmmm...I like chocolate cake!
A contented face of approval.
Aunt Merrill enjoying Liam's new gift from Aunt Jena and Chunkle. (The names...I know. Don't ask.)
Chunkle helping Liam to get buckled in to his new ride! Thanks, Mimi and Bapa!
Finishing off the party with a wagon ride around the block. For some reason, Liam would freeze whenever we put his hat on backwards. Maybe he was afraid it would fall off if he moved?
Happy Birthday, big kid! We love you SO very much 🙂
Making his favorite new expression.
