It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To

We celebrated our Little Man turning one year old today.  That's right...he's one!  I can't believe it either.  It seems like just last week he was born, or that yesterday we were taking one week, one month, two month, three month, five month, or 6 months pictures.  He has grown up so fast.  And every new day has been more fun than the last.

In honor of this occasion, we had family and friends over to help us celebrate.  We had homemade Mojo pork tacos, beans, and watermelon (thanks Hubby!) and homemade sweet potato cupcakes (in honor of Matthan's favorite food of course).

There were lots of little ones to entertain us, and lots of gifts in all sizes...even some with legs.  Wait, what? :)

Surprise! :)

I learned something about my little guy.  He does not do well with big crowds and lots of attention on him (this I already knew), and he does not like to get dirty (this I didn't know).  Well what happens when it is your first birthday?  You have lots of people staring at you hoping you dive in and make a giant mess of yourself....

... and it was just too much for the little guy :(

Don't worry, the tears didn't last long.  He got many wonderful gifts from everyone (thank you!), and enjoyed himself.  Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate!
