We started off just playing together a bit (and he was really NOT wanting much to do with me and NOTHING to do with my camera), so we went outside by ourselves. He was pretty interested in the grass and of course everything that was NOT on the blanket. :) Emily was a WONDERFUL test subject for me and her mama's got a couple of cute pictures of her because she was SUCH a big help. :) Oh well, Ethan DID eat SOME of the cake, and he didn't cry the WHOLE time - evidenced by the abundance of pictures where you see no tears. (I decided NOT to be "that photographer" who posts pictures of babies crying . . . while it is sometimes funny, his mama would probably whack me for it!
Anyway, Happy (late) First Birthday Ethan! I cannot believe you're one year old - for rememberance sake, I'll post one picture of TEENY TINY Ethan before his birthday pictures. :)
