1st Birthday Boy

Around this time a year ago we had another baby boy in our arms. Today, one year on, we celebrated his first birthday. The year seems to have flown by. As today was a bit of a travel day, I spent a lot of it at home, which was nice as I got to have some baby time without the older boys around. Anth made a chocolate cake, so after we picked up Ethan from his school and Aidan had come home on his school bus we gathered around for the cake.

We did the traditional singing of Happy Birthday. Ethan then spat all over me as he went to blow the candles out. Fortunately it was over the top of the cake. Callum dug his fingers in to get a big scoop or chocolate icing. This meant the older boys wanted to do the same thing. I even managed to have a go and came out of it with nice chocolate lips.

We've also added to the 7000 million toys. Family and friends have dropped off a number of baby toys, and Anth and I have both added to the collection with lots of ride on or push toys. I'm not sure if we're meant to be encouraging him to walk, but we've done a good job of it. I'm sure that as anxious as we are for him to do it, we'll regret it when it comes!

Ciao for Now, Happy Birthday to Callum Angry Dad.
