Edwin is old enough for one finger!! Haha. Happy Birthday to my sweet baby boy. I know he won't remember today, but I loved every minute of it!! I woke him up this morning, snuggled his sleepy pj-covered self and gave him a bottle. Then the three of us drove up to Wilmington. Ed dropped me off at church, and then brought Edwin over to Auntie Katie's house. She took care of him so Ed could get a few things done (including buying and assembling a new Big Wheel for Anthony because he accidentally ran over the other one! haha). Anyway, after church, it was time to prep for the big party. Edwin was sleepy so he had a nap before the guests arrived. I'd say the party was a big success. Due to the well-timed nap, Edwin was bright eyed and full of energy to celebrate such a big milestone. He played with the other kids, enjoyed opening his presents with Daddy, and devoured a chocolate cupcake. Oh yeah, and had a bath to clean up the frosting :) When we got home tonight, we let Edwin play with all of his new toys, much to his delight. I think one of his favorite toys was from Auntie Katie. Do you remember those old-school toys that have the plastic balls in it that pop when you push it? I'll see if I can find a picture online. Anyway, he always goes for the simple stuff. Auntie Katie graciously took lots of pictures for us (much appreciated because I had my hands full). Here are a few from her camera (the good ones) and a few from ours. Enjoy!! By the way, I think we wore the birthday boy out. He's sound asleep....in dreamland.

This is the ball popper thing I was telling you about...hard to see though
Little Miss Ella (my friend Brittany's daughter). So cute!
Handsome Spencer (my friend Jessica's little boy)
This was the scene at our house early this morning. Edwin still in his Mickey Mouse pjs enjoying a few Cheerios.
My husband rocks!!! He made this Elmo cake. And for those of you who have never attempted a project like this, it is VERY ambitious. He did an awesome job!
