Happy Birthday, Daniel!!

Today is my baby's first birthday! It doesn't seem like an entire year has gone by since we welcomed him to the world, but it has! He is the sweetest little guy and we love him so much!
Happy Birthday, Daniel!


We celebrated this past Sunday afternoon with a family party at our house. Daniel's morning nap got cut short, so he fell asleep right before the party began. He usually is awake at the time of the party. We had to wake him up, which threw him off a little. He enjoyed opening his gifts, but wasn't too sure about the cake...which totally shocked me. I thought he would have eaten with gusto....
I made "wish cards" for Daniel. Everyone at the party filled one out and told Daniel what their wish was for his life. We sealed them up, and I tied them up with ribbon. I will give them to him when he turns 18.

He wasn't too sure about everyone singing "Happy Birthday!"

Nana had to hold his hands so he wouldn't get burned...

He thinks he's had enough of this cake....





After the party, we took his balloons and tied a note and self addressed stamped envelope to them. The note told they were from his first birthday and asked if anyone found them, to drop us a line and tell us when and where they were found. We let Daniel release them......


only for them to get stuck in the pine tree in our front yard! Oh well!!
