Happy Birthday To Me!











We still have a lot of pictures to post...but we thought it appropriate to post a rememberance of this special day. Mommy said she is thankful not to be in labor with me but instead, is able to enjoy my birthday in a different, less painful, way. Today marked a lot of firsts for me besides making it through my first year. I got my first set of wheels...the Wheely Bug of course. I ate my first bowl of big boy cereal...Cheerios...and I loved it. I'm glad Mommy finally got the hint that I'm sick of that baby cereal. It's time for the big boy food. Speaking of big boy food, I also enjoyed my first peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Tasty!! I'll be having more of that! Mommy turned my carseat around...hooray! We leave tomorrow for Birmingham. Mommy says Friday we'll be in the car a LONG time as we head out to Kansas City with Grandma, Papa, the Sandersons, and Ashley. I get to meet my Great Grandpa and lots of Mommy's cousins, aunts, and uncles. So, Mommy hopes that turning my seat around will make me a better traveler. I'm still not the best car passenger...but I'm getting better. I also enjoyed my first taste of chicken pot pie. I think I'll be a fan of that too! And of course, I ate my first cupcake. I was a little hesitant at first but after Mommy put some on my tongue..I became a fan of that too. All in all, my day was good. It's hard to believe I've been around for a year. It's been a good one.
