Alex's Birthday

So Alex's first birthday was pretty uneventful, but it was kind of funny. I didn't get home from class until 7 pm and we were going to have cake then, but the kids were so tired. Erin said, "Mommy, I'm weally tiwed (really tired)" and I asked if she was too tired for cake (thinking any kid would stay up for that). To that she said yes and proceded to find a comfy spot on the futon and fall asleep for the night. We decided to just have the cake with a very tired Alex instead. Here's what happened...

Here comes the cake (what is that thing?)

"First you strap me into the high chair and then you plop this thing on my tray... with fire on it!"

"Stop the torture and get me out of here!"

We tried again the next day and he did eventually eat his cake and like it (though the candle thing still freaked him out the second time).

And he made a nice big mess (you should have seen the seat of his high chair!)

Happy First Birthday Alex!!!

Great job on the blog! I didn't realize that Alex and Clayton are so close in age- he was 1 on Oct. 30th. Anyway, it is great to see you guys doing so well. Have a good week!

He is so cute! That really is funny that he cried (and that you got a great photo of it too). Happy #1 Alex!
