After KFP awoke from his nap yesterday, we managed to open presents and eat cake before the guests had to leave. He was still sort of sleepy and dazed, but at least he wasn't crying and flinging cake!

While he was interested in being sung to (my little guy loves music), and in poking the baby-friendly Apple Swirl cake Mom made, he wasn't so keen on tasting it. I slipped a piece in his mouth when he opened it, and his eyes got really wide. We got a couple pics but none of the "baby smashing birthday cake" pics everyone I told about the party seemed to expect. We did, however, get some great portraits at a local park this morning just before a brief  rainstorm.  As any photographer will tell you, overcast days are great for photos.

He got lots of books for his birthday, plus a big green ball that coincidentally made a great prop. He is currently dismantling a birthday hat which yesterday he refused to wear.

If his personality now is an indication of what he'll be as he grows up, he will be a music-loving, curious, outgoing, active mover and shaker. Shake that groove thing, KFP! I'll dance along.

KFP plays with his new baby laptop.

Moral:
Babies don't really get first birthdays.

Sammi wouldn't do that with hers either. I fed her some of the icing off the cake that we bought especially for her straight off my finger. We got a picture of her with my finger in her mouth looking at the camera like "What?". It was cute. I think it had something to do with the fact that she was trying to cut teeth at the time.

I think it's also an unusual flavor for him. Tastes like sweet bread or fruity cheese. What IS this?

Happy birthday KFP! Time really does fly past when you have a baby-now-toddler!

None of my babies smashed their first birthday cakes either so I don't know where that comes from! First birthdays are definitely more for the parents to heave a sigh of relief that you've all survived that first year than it is for the child's benefit. I've learned that from experience so poor old Felix is not going to get nearly as many presents as his older brother did on his first birthday!

It makes me feel proud we made it this far! Not long until Felix turns 1, too.

Scarily, not long at all. My oldest daughter turns 7 on Tuesday week and then we're in the final stretch. Frightening. I know from experience that it's pointless buying lots of things for a one year old, so I'll probably get him a Duplo truck and then maybe some clothes and that'll be it. So much quieter than his brother's birthday with its party and a mountain of presents he couldn't handle opening in one day!

That's why we kept it small this year. As it is we still had a small group gathered to watch him open gifts. Happily, no meltdowns, even though he was fresh up from a nap. Hope that Felix has a fun birthday.

Happy Birthday! Lil didn't eat her 1st birthday cake either. However, she completely scarfed down her 2nd birthday cake and now associates going to the park with cup cakes.

Love the baby laptop!

Holy cow he's a year old already?!?! Where does the time go! Seems like only yesterday you were posting about being pregnant, then posting about bringing him home.

I think it's safe to say we will all join you in dancing with him when he moves and shakes. **is fuhklempt again**
