Happy birthday, Elliot!

I can't believe it's already been a year. We celebrated with Ed's family after Thanksgiving dinner and again with local friends yesterday.

Grandma (Ed's mom) made Elliot a bear cake using the same mold she used for birthdays when Ed and his sisters were kids. So cool!

Elliot got many lovely, thoughful gifts. Here is a tricycle from Aunt Paige and Uncle Kevin that he's already taken outside several times.

Yesterday we had high tea, which was so fun that we might have to do it for other birthdays as well. (Probably mine or Ed's -- I assume by next year, Elliot will have other ideas of what constitutes a fun party.)

Elliot loved his cake! He ate a little and threw a lot of it all over the place.

We got him a recycling truck for his birthday, since his favorite toys are the wheels on the stroller and articles in our recycling bin.

The year has been a blur -- sleep deprivation will do that to you -- but it has been amazing. Ed and I have had so much fun and can't wait to see what the next year brings.

Happy Birthday!

And thank you SO MUCH for the recycling truck picture, which solved the problem of what to send our nephews for Christmas. (We're already the weird liberal yuppie aunt and uncle, so we're running with it.)
