Cohen's 1st Birthday!

Wow, What a day! Everyone and I mean EVERYONE tells me all the time that the time goes by so fast! And they grow up so fast! And quite frankly I was ready to smack the next person that told me that! But it seriously does. I'm not kidding. How am *I* a mother of a ONE year old? How is my little baby ONE already!??!

It was a very fun day. Very hectic (for me), but very fun. There were a few things I would change for my next one year old's birthday... so now I know. Obviously Cohen had no idea what was going on. But it was a very special day for Jeff and me.
Top pictures... Cohen opening his first present of the day! We had him open just one present in the morning. It was an outfit for him to wear that day! He would just bite the present! bottom pictures: Cohen eating his birthday breakfast scramble! I was holding the phone up, cause his Aunt Jenny and cousin Gwen were singing happy birthday to him! Lots of people called to sing to him! He would just try to grab the phone! :) And then Jeff kissing the birthday boy before he left for work.

Okay, I am sorry, but isn't this picture so cute?! Ahhh.... Cohen and I met Jeff for lunch. We ran into Keith (our bro-in-law) there, so he joined us as well!

His cake!!! The top one is the one he got to destroy... and the bottom one was for all of us! I was pretty happy with the way it came out. It took me WAAAAY to long. But it was worth it!

The PARTY!!! The Hesters have that big blow up water slide... so we borrowed it. It was really fun! The kids had a blast! We also had a slip n' slide! I missed it when Cohen was crawling all over the slip n slide :( It was really fun watching all the kids playing around!

Present time! Cohen had ZERO interest in the presents. So I got to open all of them! :) His new favorite thing is climbing up the stairs... and whenever we are downstairs in the playroom, he knows exactly where to go! So the whole time I was opening his presents, he was constantly making a break for it, and Jeff had to go capture him! Cohen got A LOT of verrrrry nice gifts. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!!!

The Cake! I was pretty excited for this part of the night... I'm not going to lie! :) HOWEVER... It was not the way I thought it would go! He was so dainty about it! The mess you see in the pictures, was after I picked at it, trying to get Cohen to get into it. The kids had fun feeding it to him though! :)

I just want to say thank you for everyone that came to his party! It meant a lot to us! And I'm sorry to my family and friends in Portland, that weren't able to share in this day with us.

I will admit that I got a little teary eyed when we were singing 'Happy Birthday'... It really did hit me that he's no longer my little baby. I am soooo excited though, for the next chapter of his life.
