Nathan's first birthday and cake

Here is a video Rob took while Nathan was trying to figure out what he was supposed to do with the cake we placed in front of him. He really seemed to enjoy having all eyes on him and clapped often. Enjoy!

Birthday Update

We had a great time celebrating Nathan's first birthday. "Auntie" Nicole flew in from Arizona to help us celebrate. Nate loved having her here. She has posted some photo's and videos from her trip, click here to see them. I was rather domestic and made a celebration plate AND Nate's smash cake. They turned out rather well if I say so myself.

We started the day with a bath and then breakfast. I stole the Rhyno's family tradition and made a pancake in the shape of a one for our little man. Then on Saturday we had the official party. Nathan did not take a nap before the party so I was anticipating a major meltdown, but Nathan did fabulous. He laughed and clapped throughout the entire party. When we gave him his smash cake he didn't know what to do. He had never had sugar and wasn't really sure about it. He didn't smash it but he seemed to enjoy all of the attention! The party was a huge sucess, what a blessing to be surrounded by friends and family as we celebrated our miracle boy.

Happy Birthday!!!!!

It's official, baby Nate is no longer a baby. At 4:24 this afternoon our little man becomes a one year old! Everyone tells you how fast time flies when you have kids and now I know what they mean! I can't believe that one year ago today we met Nathan for the first time. This has been an incredible year. I can't believe how much I love that kid. He makes my heart smile each and every day.

I'll post some birthday pictures later today so you can see our big boy enjoying his special day (like he's really going to know what's going on, haha). We are starting some birthday traditions today that I'll post for you. Thanks for all of the prayers for the years before Nathan came to us and for this year too.
