L'il E turned the big number o n e today and I feel like I just wrote this post yesterday. It has been the most amazing year of my life (as I've mentioned before) full of laughs, new friends, responsibility, tired days, sleepless nights but mostly a whole lot of love. I can't remember what our life was like without our little man and I can't imagine equally loving another l'il something (no I'm not pregnant). What will year two with a toddler be like? The adventure continues...
To celebrate L'il E's big day we hosted a tea party complete with champagne and gluten free chocolate cake from Bunner's Bake Shop. Of course all grandparents, one great grandma (GGMA) and great aunts and uncle were in attendance. L'il E was the star of the show, but did not perform as I had hoped for the birthday cake photo opp. He neatly ate his cake and then became more interested in the strawberries than smearing vanilla icing all over his face (he is our child after all so I wouldn't expect any less). But my favourite part of the party was the special photo book I made of E's first year - we made sure everyone wrote their own message to him as a keepsake for later on in life. I used this company called Pinhole Press to create the book and the quality is outstanding.
Happy Birthday L'il E! Now off to lunch with Papa.
