Today we celebrated Dane's 1st birthday with a party at our house! It was so much fun watching him react to his 1st party hat, 1st balloons, 1st b-day gifts and 1st cake. He was pooped after the 2-hour festivity :-)
Dane tested out his party hat before the guests arrived. He liked it! For about 1 minute.
Are these balloons for me? [Dane has been eyeing balloons, from a distance, at places we shop. We were excited to see how he reacted to them up close.]He was timid at first but then drug them all over the house. Although we weren't sure if he liked the balloons or if he just wanted to play with the toy we tied them too. Either way, cute pictures!Checking out his first present. Vroom, vroom.He was a little mad when I made him sit in my lap to open more gifts. The mutual gift opening lasted about 30 seconds and then he was off playing with toys. So I got to open all the gifts I had wrapped the night before :-)We love this picture. He's playing with a tractor while eyeing his new drum. Too many new toys to choose from!!!!
This is Dane's first b-day cake. I stayed up all night making it. And if you believe that, you don't know me very well :-)This is Dane's second, much smaller, b-day cake. He had no clue what to do with the singing and the glowing candle!We love this picture because he's grabbing his belly fat.He was very cautious at first.Then he took a break for some singing.
And then he got down to business.
And then he just wanted to take a nap!
It was a big day for you Dane. Happy 1st birthday party! We love you and can't wait to celebrate YOU year after year.
