Finnley & Elliot - On Your First Birthday

You both woke around 6:30 and started crawling all over me.

To celebrate reaching a year, I gave you honey toast for breakfast. You both ate a little of it. Dad had already gone to work, but Mason and I sang "Happy Birthday" two times, Mason blew out each of your candles for you.

You were extremely cranky, so less than two hours after getting up for the day, it was nap time.

Grandma Jackie came to visit for a few days. You were both shy when she first showed up, but warmed up after a short while.

"Helping" Grandma unpack a suitcase.

We ate leftover meatloaf and roasted broccoli and cauliflower for dinner. Beans and rice was what we had for supper.

You played at the water table with Mason and the neighbor boy. The water was pretty dirty, but Finnley, you did your best to try to drink some. Elliot, you were covered with mud.

There was a necessary bath.

You took an afternoon nap. Thank goodness.

We went to the park. You played in the grass, on the swings, and climbed around. Also, there was a lot of bark eating.. as usual.

Grandma Jackie brought along a birthday cake (made by Grandma Kim) for you gals. We sang to you again after supper, this time Dad was there. Mason was nice enough to blow out the candles again.

We let you each have a slice. You weren't impressed. I was, I ate two slices.

We ended the night with some teeth brushing, a couple of books, and falling to sleep with mama's milk.

A happy birthday, indeed.

What a great birthday! Glad Grandma Jackie could come help celebrate! Thank goodness Mason was willing to do those candles twice... or four times! Happy Birthday girls!
