Alex' First Birthday

We had a small family party at the house on the evening of the 28th. Very simple... just dinner together, followed by cupcakes and presents. Alex seemed to thoroughly enjoy all the attention, not to mention the balloons, and he knew exactly what to do with the cupcake we put on his tray. The pictures below tell the story better than I ever could!

Alex demonstrates how to eat a cupcake. Clockwise from top left:
1) Pick up the cupcake with both hands.
2) Eat the frosting first!
3) Smoosh the cupcake all over your face.
4) Share with Daddy.

Alex got some clothes and cool Baby Einstein bath toys from his Auntie Ronda, plus a Costco size box of diapers and baby wipes. But the best present was the "Hokey Pokey" Elmo, who sings and dances when you squeeze his hand.

Birthday videos to follow soon! Stay tuned.

    Alex looks much cuter with frosting on his face than Rusty.

    Happy birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday to my favorite nephew! Sorry we haven't called - we're planning on it sometime soon. Wish I could've been there to see the cupcake eating in person. We love you all so much! Hugs and kisses from your cousins, Alex!
