Cayden's Birthday

The morning of Cayden's birthday he woke up to balloons covering the floor of his room. We greeted him and filled his crib up with balloons. At first he was confused but after he figured out what was going on he loved it!
 Sleepy face.

Then he and Adalyn sat in the living room to eat their breakfast of a banana and yogurt while they watched Disney Jr.

Jonathan took both kids to visit his office/work while I ran some errands for the party the next day. He took Adalyn to his work on her first birthday too. We met up for lunch at Chick-fil-a and then went home to take naps (kids) and work on party stuff (us). While the kids were asleep my parents came to town and helped us clean/decorate/make food/make curtains. (Yes, I did make curtains at the last minute because I couldn't stand my old ones a moment longer.)

After we had pizza for dinner (and baby food for C) Cayden got to open his gift from us. He was pretty cute the way he pulled out all of the tissue paper and then got so excited about his new tractor. We didn't have boyish toys in our house so a tractor was a necessity:)

We had a wonderful day celebrating Cayden. Of course the entire day I would look at the clock and think "last year at this exact time..." I don't think I'll ever grow out of doing that on my kids' birthdays. He was going to bed on his birthday night at the same exact time he was born last year and it just struck me as ironic as I was kissing him goodnight. I still can't believe my baby is ONE!

Too cute! Looking at your pictures reminds me of my two--our daughter is the oldest and was 2 & 1/2 when her little brother joined our family! Happy birthday to your sweet little Cayden!
