Eli's First Birthday

Waiting for the festivities to begin.
Very serious about his Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole.
Same serious, contemplative face about the cake and candles.  He was pretty tired, which I think contributed to the lack of animation.  But he is fairly serious and very interested in anything new to him generally.
Yummy carrot cake.

Gifts.  But let's be honest.  There's really only one gift for this boy. 

Oh yes.  His ball.  That certainly would have been enough.

Checking out the cute toy from Grammy and Papa.
That's interesting enough to relinquish the ball for a moment.

We also got him a little piano that plays a note and an animal pops up when you press the keys.  It's a very *quiet* piano.  I made sure.  :-)
He'd really like the animals to STAY up and not disappear when you take your hand off the keys.  Trying to figure it all out.  That's what it's all about.  


His birthday was January 29th.  He started walking just before that.  He's doing just great.  We think he's just great.  Happy to see you accomplish your first year Eli-man!

How cute he is! It's really fun watching him check everything out. I can't wait to see him in a month!
