Today was your first birthday little man.... and what a long day it was. We are all exhausted so your 12 month post will have to wait until tomorrow!
It is hard to believe that you are one year old already. The last year has been the most exciting, challenging, and rewarding year of my life.
We celebrated twice, first in Connecticut at Grandma and Grandpa's house with Mama's side of the family, and then again here at home with Papa's side family. You were fantastic at both of your parties! Your big 'cousins' and 'friends' were happy to help you open you presents and you were more than welcoming of their help. Mama made you a little lion cake (modeled after the cover of one of your books). It took you a bit to figure out what you were supposed to do with it, but once Papa handed you a spoon you seemed to be all set.
