Birthday Fun!

I know this is about a month late... but I finally finished editing all these pictures. There were so many good ones to pick from... I had a hard time deciding which ones to post. But the birthday post is finally here.

A big thank you to everyone that came out and helped us celebrate little man's big day. Porter is so blessed to be surrounded by so many people that love him and we couldn't feel more grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for all the toys, books, and clothes. Thank you for all the support you give our family. Thank you for all the joy you bring to our lives.
Porter... thank you for being such a wonderful boy. Daddy and I are so thankful that God picked us to be your parents. We could not have been given and more adventurous, loving, or precious son. The last year has been a joy; to watch you grow, develop and learn. We cannot wait for the rest of your life and look forward to each and every day with you.
A peek into his BIG day...

Pre-party with his balloons... or "boons" as he calls them

The cute napkins

His cake... Mickey Mouse Clubhouse... of course
(A little sidenote about the cake... We ordered it from this wonderful bakery in Aledo, The Bake Shop. If you are ever in need of bakery items, she does amazing work. As you will soon see we had to destroy the beautiful decorating job of the cake, fondant and 1 year olds don't mix well. But the cake was fantastic.)

I don't want that stinkin' hat!

What is this stuff?

Typical "Porter face"

I'm still not sure about this stuff

Another "Porter face"

September 19, 2011... A fun filled day of doctor, zoo, and cupcakes!

Jeff took Porters birthday off work so we could spend the day together. He had his doctors appointment first thing Monday morning. He seems to have finally levelled off a little bit. He weighed in at 24 pounds 10 ounces and was 31 inches long. He is still in the 90% for height and 95% for weight, but at least he slowed down some. He took his shots like a champ, but did not like the finger prick to give blood. We went home and he took a good long nap and after lunch we headed to the zoo. This was Jeff's first time to go with us to the zoo, so it was a very special occasion!

My loves!

Talking to the "kitty cat"... they say "meow meow"

The alligator statue might be one of his favorites... they talk!
After dinner we decided to give Porter a "his size" cupcake. He thouroughly enjoyed it. I think the fact that it was a.) small and b.) not very sweet made it much more appealing to him. That added to the fact that he had his "giggle pants" on, made for a very interesting birthday cupcake with Daddy and Mommy.

Mommy... you are hilarious

Mmmmm... delicious!

Icing? Yes please!

This is the only picture that I got with him on his birthday... and I love it!

Happy birthday to the most adorable baby boy I know! We love you so much.
