Daddy's Boy

Lately, Oliver has become quite the daddy's boy.  He squeals with delight every time he see's Riley walk through the door.

Today we met him outside and Ollie took the chance to test his driving skills ;)

My two favorite boys, home after a hard day of work/play.

Ollie's First Birthday: People & Presents

We had lots of friends and family join us in celebrating Ollie turning ONE.  He got passed around and received lots of love and attention.

This little guy has lots of grandmas and grandpas that think an awful lot of him.

Oliver did really well opening his presents.  He perfected his skills since Christmas and was a master at opening.

He especially loved throwing the tissue paper :)
Dig in, little boy.

This little monkey dances around and sings "It's your Birthday."  Ollie's reaction to it had us all laughing.

Happy Birthday, Oliver!

Ollie's First Birthday: Decorations & Delicious Cake

A very special first birthday was the reason for our celebration this past weekend.  On Saturday we had quite the crowd join us at the Westmoreland Community Center for Ollie's big day.

In sticking with his bedroom decor, sock monkey was the theme for the party.

I can't take credit for this one.  A couple of my preschool aides at school made this for me.  It turned out better than I expected and so, so cute.

Oliver's 1st birthday cake was, or course, made by my Grandma Mary.

So yummy and so cute!

He was quite the little cheeser as everybody sang to him.

He wasn't too into his birthday cake.  He didn't like being messy and wasn't too interested in eating it either.  Oh well, I'm sure next year will be much different :)
