Happy, Happy Birthday, William Dear!

Yesterday, my baby, William John Ikaika McCuen turned 1! I can not believe that it has been a year since Will came into our life, already! It has been the most amazing year ever!

We had a BBQ birthday bash with family and friends to celebrate the day. Fun was had by all, especially the birthday boy. He did all of his favorite things, played with balls, played outside, played with bubbles, ate some grass, I mean some cake...., and flirted with all the girls.

I'll save all of his recent milestones for after we go to his year check up on Monday and bombard you with pictures instead.

The Birthday Boy
Will and his cousin Ella playing with Balls, his favorite thing.
My trooper of a sister came directly from the hospital after having a baby. She is such an amazing sister!
Even baby Annalise had a fun time at the party.
Will wasn't terribly interested in opening his birthday presents, he was more interested in the wrapping paper.
Will's cake was shaped like a half of a ball, his favorite thing.
At first Will was a little tentative about his cake but Stephen was persistent and Will eventually ate 3/4 of his cake.
Will decided that cake made a great shampoo.
The cake after Will was finished.
All in All I'd say Will had a Great Day!

Year-ish Pictures of Will

First of all, I can not believe my baby is almost a year old! Where has this year gone? I can't believe that a year ago I was 8 1/2 months pregnant and so ready to have a baby.

Anyway, back to the reason for this post, pictures. While we were in San Diego, I took some year-old pictures of Will. I think they turned out well, especially considering the light was fading and Will was grumpy. Here are a few of my favorites...
