We were able to celebrate with grandma (visiting from Virginia), and friends Brooke, Zach and Ryan. Here are the highlights of his birthday in pictures complete with balloons, presents, cake, and tears :).
The beautiful decorations which lasted all of 5 mins after Colton's nap, when he decided he HAD to have them, so we took most down.Opening presents: cars, drawing mats, Quiet Book from grandma (awesome awesome awesome), clothes, puzzles. He loved them all!
The wonderful birthday cookie! Don't you just love the star candles?
After Colton totally lost it crying when we put him in his highchair for the classic cake pictures, Mike decided to just hold on to him instead. Here he is post tears.
The classic birthday hat picture. Yes, it lasted all of 10 seconds. But that's all I needed to snap a photo.
And...then he lost it again crying, so I fed him his cookie cake on my lap. Messy, but happier since on mommy's lap.
Happy birthday Colton! We love you!
