My First Birthday

Story told by: Henry

Today was the best birthday I’ve ever had!

I was awakened by my crazy family with a birthday song.

After breakfast, we left for story time at the library. If Mommy isn’t paying attention, I love to pull every book off of the shelves.

Lainey loves sitting right up front while Ms. Kathleen reads a book.

I like to play with the outlets.

We absolutely love our time with Ms. Kathleen. She’s fantastic!

After story time, we went to the park. I loved the swings!

Lainey had fun on the big slide! The park was pretty muddy and wet, so we didn’t stay for too long. Our short time there was fun, though!

Once we got home, I took a long nap. By the time I woke up, it was almost time for dinner. I got to eat macaroni and cheese for the first time. Lainey has been talking about this how good this stuff is, and now I believe her!

Mommy made cream cheese chocolate cupcakes for my birthday! We started with a candle in the cupcake while everyone sang to me. I thought this was pretty funny.

At first I was a little confused about what to do with this thing.

Daddy is really good at eating, so he was trying to show me how to eat a cupcake.

Once I figured out how to take a bite of the cupcake, I devoured it in three massive bites.

Mommy and Daddy found this absolutely hilarious. I’m amazed I didn’t choke.

Wow. My first time eating a cupcake was amazing (and short). Hopefully they give me another one soon!

After dessert, it was time for presents! I got a neat water table from Grandma and Grandpa that I can’t wait to use this summer!

I was a little confused about what to do with the paper covering my presents, so Lainey helped me out.

Once Lainey opened this ferry boat from Na Na and Ba Ba, I was thrilled. A box to chew on! My favorite!

I love Lainey’s Gloworm, so I was thrilled to get my own.

Lainey put some of my books to use right away. I can’t wait to read them with her!

Uncle Matt and Aunt Elisa got me this amazing book! Did you notice that it has my face and name on it?! I’m famous!

After presents and a bath, it was time for my day to come to an end. Mommy and Daddy can’t believe that this last year went by so quickly! Here’s to another great year!
