1st Birthday Party...

We finally got around to celebrating the babies first birthday. (Finals is a really bad time to be born). I feel a little bit lame in comparison to some 1st birthday parties I've seen but I just didn't have the time, energy, or money to do something bigger. Besides it really doesn't take much to please these kids. Hand them a cell phone they're good to go. That said I did want to get together with all of the very important people from this past year who have been such a tremendous blessing and help with the babies. Marcus and I have been blessed with a great support system and I really wanted a chance for all of us to be together before we all go our separate ways.

It was suppose to be outside, unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate so we moved downstairs to the common room in our apartment building.
Eli exploring the presents. Neither of the babies had any interest in actually opening the gifts. Although one of Eli's new favorite games is to pick things up and then throw them over his shoulder so that's what he did with each of the packages.

Emerson loving her balloon.

Some of the guests eating pizza.

Emerson and Marcus reading one of her new books.

Getting ready for cake.

My attempt at cake making...

I don't really bake. It's just not my thing.

Once again Eli had nothing to do with the cake. What he did do was dump the cake off of the plate so he could chew on it. Which is what he did for the rest of the cake eating time. Have I mentioned that he won't eat anything that isn't pureed. It's a problem (and a post for another time).

He also managed to flip the cake upside down when we suggested he try some. Emerson once again dug right into her cake (although she seems to prefer chocolate). 

My family has a tradition of taking a picture of all who attend our birthday parties. So here's the babies first annual birthday party picture. I'm going to miss all of these wonderful, amazing people.

Happy Birthday once again my sweet, crazy babies.
