Ethan is now a beautiful, wonderful one-year-old! We had a fun party today with family and a few friends. I made Ethan's cake, which took FOREVER, by the way. Now I see why they charge so much for the ones at the store!
We played a little game with facts about Ethan, and of course his Grandma Goodale (my mom) won! The guests also filled out a message to Ethan on little pieces of paper, about why they loved him. He'll get to read them when he's older.
He wasn't too sure about his cake, at first. Then, once he tasted it, he seemed to enjoy it, though he was still pretty polite about it all, and he smacked his little lips quite a bit! It was his first experience with sugar, so I was glad he didn't go too crazy over it! I specifically made an applesauce cake so it would be a bit healthier.
I'm really amazed that my little baby is already a year old. I treasure him and love him more and more every single day that I get to be his mother. I often wonder why I was so blessed to have such a beautiful, wonderful, perfect child. He is truly a gift from heaven.
