Happy 1st Birthday Christian!

Today we celebrated Christian's first birthday (a few days early). Shannon and Brian threw him a big party that all of his little friends attended. It was quite entertaining (and a little overwhelming) to be around so many little ones all at once. They went all out with a monkey theme, since that is what they call him. As you see here, this is the darling cake that the guests got to share. Christian had his very own little monkey cake, though he barely touched it with 30 people looking on and anticipating his next move. In fact, the poor guy was so tuckered out with all of the guests and activity, he went down for a nap halfway into the party.

However, he did get to play with a few of his new gifts, including this little red wagon. Though he isn't walking on his own, he is quite good at pushing something, or someone. This is his friend TJ, whose mommy babysits Christian twice a week, and brings TJ with her.

We had to leave before Christian woke up from his nap, but I'm sure he thought he died and went to Toys R Us heaven when he woke with all of the toys that were there. Thank goodness they plan to dedicate a room for him to play with his toys, because there were A LOT!!

Once we got home, Bennett had a bath and then went down for a nap. Recently she has discovered her hands, but several times this weekend we have caught her with a thumb in her mouth. For those that don't know, I sucked my thumb, so I am anxious to see if this is just a phase, or the beginning of a new habit. Either way, we think it is darling right now.
