Elliot’s 1st Birthday was on a Sunday, we’d kind of already celebrated as a family at Krispy Kreme and Nicklecade, as well as with the Phillips side of the family, a few days earlier. But you only really turn one once, so of course we did do a little bit of celebrating!
A messy french toast and powdered sugar breakfast before church…
Later opening presents (A new favorite friend…the glow worm)
and more little people.
Which the boys preceded to show Elliot how to play with 🙂
A lunch birthday popsicle
Of course every birthday, needs a cake, we sang to Elliot, the older boys insisted that it would be best if they had candles too,
And of course, he needed his own birthday cake, a first birthday tradition.
He was a little hesitant at first, what’s this thing in front of me??
but eventually after getting a little taste of it,
He dug right in.
Then in an attempt to get the whole cake in his mouth, he dumped it on himself…
But that didn’t stop him from enjoying the cakey goodness!
To be honest, I am not sure that Elliot really got the whole concept of a birthday, his big brothers helped him open his presents, helped him eat his cake, and helped him play with his new toys. And he loved the constant attention that he received from his big brothers, but was a little confused by all of it.
Man we sure do love this little guy….
