Wesley is ONE: the birthday party

Happy Birthday, Wesley! My baby is one! We celebrated Wesley birthday on Saturday with family and his close buddies.

There was food...

.... and cake, of course...

... lots of eating...

... and playing.

When it came time for the birthday song and the traditional "demolishing of the first birthday cake," Wesley greeted the pomp and circumstance with a scowl. He wasn't sure what to think of the attention. (Why is everyone looking at me?)

Wesley was also very cautious of the candle.
(But Mommy said I should never play with fire...)

In true Wesley form, he tentatively picked at the cake; carefully picking off the M&Ms first...

... until big brother came to the rescue.
(Come on, Wes. Let me show you how it's done.)

Big brother Grant is very thorough.
(You gotta really dig your fingers into the cake.)

Together, Wesley and Grant got the job done. 
Operation Demolish Birthday Cake - Accomplished!
(I think I'm going to be a little sick.)



  1. That looks like a lot of fun. I remember Laura approached her first b-day cake rather cautiously too.

  2. Oh, soooo sweet! Love how Grant dove right in to help! Happy Birthday Wesley!
