First Birthday

Don't be horified by the near nudity, but this is the ONLY way to eat your first birthday cake. After the singing and the clapping and stuffing and finger-painting with the cake, then dad takes things in-hand.
And doing the only logical thing, we put the baby in the kitchen sink!

No matter if I wanted his help or not, my big brother "helped" me today unwrapping my presents and generally being at the center of the festivities, just like any 3-year-old fellow will. Wait until he see's what happens when Jewel turns 16! By then I'll be able to fend his "help" off.

Miss Jewel had a very fun day with all her family around her. Grandma Betty is still feeling a bit puny from her pneumonia and she couldn't make it today, but folks did stop by and visit with her.

I think Liam had a fun day playing big time with his cousins.
