I didn’t know what to expect at Elias’ first birthday party, but I imagined a cupcaked face, presents, and lot of smiling friends. Last week we celebrated Elias’ life by having a birthday party at our house. Elias had a blast. He only cried when he had to open his presents. No, he was not overwhelmed by all the people in our living room, or from the lack of a morning nap. He was crying because he was so grateful for all of his new things. Really, he was.
After presents, a giant cupcake made things really funny. It was a sugar high if I’ve ever seen one. Elias started entertaining the whole room by trying to walk, and doing head stands. It all ended with a lot of giggling. Here are some pictures from the party. Thanks to all of who came.
