Happy Birthday Gabe!

I can't believe my little baby is ONE! Happy Birthday Gabe, I love you so much. Being your Mother is a gift so that is so precious and dear to me, you are my treasure. Since the moment you were born, I have loved you and have felt so special and proud to call you my Son. You have such a sweet and special spirit! You have been the BEST baby, always happy and cheerful. You have a love for life and a happiness about you that is so contagious, I hope you never lose it! I love having my little boy, it was so fun (and strangely novel) to go shopping for toy tools and Tonka trucks, I LOVED it!

Here are some things that are noteworthy for you and your life up to this point:

* You love to laugh, dance, and be innocently mischievous

* You are a GREAT eater! You have loved bananas but are now starting to love carrots or broccoli the best.

* You are still crawling, but love to tease us with a few steps now and again!

* You love to make other people happy, you love to get into a laughter fit with people

* You sing every once in a while, it is so cute!

* You throw the cutest little tantrums and kick and throw yourself. For now it is just really funny when you do it

* You are cautiously friendly

* You are a MAJOR scaredy cat!

* You are so sweet, but not cuddly

* You are sooooo cheerful! You usually wake up happy and then eat, play, and stay good until it is time for a nap. You are only every cranky if you are tired.

I love you so much Gabe, you are my sweet little boy, Happy First Birthday!

Here are some pics of the day, start to finish. Surprising we didn't get a pic of Gabe in his new favorite toy, his cozy coupe. He also got a Tonka truck, tools, blocks, and a baby laptop. I hope you enjoy your new toys as much as Laine will!

Of course, as is normal for this age, he enjoyed the packaging more than the actual toy

Look at that sweet face!

Pure Carnage!

He seriously looks like his cousing Aniston here

Laine quite enjoyed the cake as well

What a sweetie! I can't believe that Gabe is already one! I remember Ben sent me the pics of when he was first born. Time really flies! And I bet the cake was delicious if it came from you!

Happy Birthday little guy! I LOVE first birthdays and cake eating. My family has always made it a point to get a tarp, set the cake in the middle and let the baby go at it. Of course when I turned 1, I ate so much cake I threw up. Some things never change.
