1 year (video update!)

We celebrated Blake's first birthday yesterday! Blake got to play with one of his buddies while I had a root canal and then once Daddy got home, we had a party! And even though we didn't invite anyone over, I was so exhausted by the end of the night that it felt like we had thrown a huge party for him!

He was tentative at first...

but then he dug right in!

Skyping with grandparents

I stole some of his cupcake...

but he didn't care!

Opening gifts and skyping with the other set of grandparents

Wait, this party has an end? 

(After spending way too much time trying to figure out how to upload a video that is too large, I finally figured out how to compress and upload it. Phew!)

Happy first birthday, Blake!

Cute! Garrett and Caleb (and me) loved the video. I think my favorite part of this post, though, is the last photo of Blake. What an awesome face he's pulling! :)

Amazing video! What program did you use to make it? Brilliant idea.

Thanks Whitney. My favorite part is at 3:06 when he's watching it snow outside the window. He looks back over his shoulder and his eyes say, "okay, mommy's here. Everything's gonna be alright."
