We had about 40 adults and kids over on Saturday to celebrate Cole's first birthday. We had so much fun. I was a little worried about how Cole would react to all of the excitement - I have heard and been part of birthday parties where the kid was just a "nightmare" - but Cole was great. He loved all of the kids and all of the balloons. He would have been happy staying inside the bounce house with his friends all day if we would have let him. He did what I thought he would do with his cake - he eats everything with his 2 little pincher fingers and when he gets bored of that, he starts mushing. He ate almost 3 hotdogs for lunch and had lots of sweets for dessert. People think I am crazy for having such a "big" party for our Monkey, but he deserves it. Such a sweet boy, full of love and happiness - how could you not celebrate in a big way for such a big boy!
