Birthday Bonanza!!!

It has happened....My precious baby boy has turned one! I'm not sure what to do with myself....except maybe have another one! (Haha! No, I'm not making any announcements...)

True to second child stereotypes, William had no fancy party...but it honestly wasn't for lack of want! I was planning on throwing him a party but we didn't have a good weekend. The weekend before his Birthday was 4th of July and then we left the next Saturday for the beach. Instead he had many smaller parties and if I do say so myself, he may have even enjoyed that more! :)

The first one took place on 4th of July at Jason's family's house on the lake. He loved his Mickey Mouse balloons and decorations! He swam in his little pool and even got to play with his favorite little partners in crime, Aidan and Barrett!
Picture with Mom and Dad. He wasn't thrilled about being in strapped in but he didn't really know what was coming...Family Shot. I sure wish I knew whose camera we were looking at because it certainly wasn't mine! :)
He was slow and steady with his cake. He started out tentative but 30 minutes later he was covered and there wasn't much left on the plate....
Fast Forward a little....
Now he is starting to get it
Little help from Annie...
Now he is officially disgusting...but in a totally cute way!
Oh, but wait... This party has just begun!!!
Dirty, exhausted and officially stuffed!!! Nothing a little dip in the kiddie pool didn't fix!
The cake that survived...

William turned 1 on Friday, July 10th and we left for the beach the very next day. That night we had Round 2 with my Mom's side of the family. William loved his 2nd cake and all of his wonderful gifts! He and his cousins Amelie and Eli had plenty to play with all week long!
I think he still feels full from last weeks cake... He didn't have the same attack as before.
He still put up a good fight though!

Sharing one of the new toys with Amelie!
We had a few more little celebrations including cupcakes and presents at the pool with our playgroup the day before his Birthday. Part of me still feels bad that he didn't get a big party but I think he is happy! ;)
