We celebrated Josiah's first birthday last Sunday. We invited lots of Josiah's friends as well as some of Mommy's friends! Grandma Walker got him this cute little crown that says "Birthday Boy" which he only wore for this picture, as he then proceeded to remove it afterward.
Josiah quickly found the big blue ball that was given to him as a gift long before the gifts were opened and played with it. I have taught him how to bounce a ball and so he was practicing that skill.
Daddy got to celebrate with us too, but then had to drive back to Seattle at about 2pm, so as to be there the next morning for work.
We had a nice BBQ with all our friends and got to visit with them a bit as well. We had it in the Clubhouse of our apartment complex so that there would be more room for all the guests. When we brought the cake out, we sang for Josiah and I could tell that he knew he was the center of attention. I let him taste the corner of the cake and at first he just took a tiny bit of frosting to taste. When he realized what it was he started to eat more of it until he looked like the picture below!
Josiah got lots of nice gifts that he has been thoroughly enjoying playing with since the party. Thanks to all for making this a fun event for our little pumpkin! We will miss you all when we move! Please keep in touch!
