July 8th was Cooper's first birthday. What a big birthday boy!!! The day was just a normal day with some dollar store presents to open and a cake. Some days I feel like a pathetic mom because most things are just plain and simple. No big party for this cute little guy. After I finished painting Cadence's closet (notice paint on my face and clothes), I wrapped Cooper's presents. He unwrapped them in a most unusual way - with his teeth, biting them. Yes, everything is still going in his mouth!!!!
Cadence wanted to assist in unwrapping presents too! He was nice to share that opportunity! He also thought all of us should enjoy putting wrapping paper in our mouths. Silly guy!
He got a beach ball, cars, a floatie in which to sit, and a mylar balloon with a dog on it. He kept giving it kisses!!!! Next came the adventure of the cake. We decided to get a big cake and let him have a piece instead of the whole thing. We shared the cake with the whole family and Tangi and her family (they happened to stop by during presents.) Cooper was excited to dig in. Dad assisted him in blowing the candle out. He just wanted to grab it!
I cut a piece of cake. Put it in front of him! He looked at it! Dipped one finger in and tasted! YUMMY!!!!
Liking it, Cooper went for a big handful. Even tastier!!!
Next bite, he attempted to shove half of the cake in his mouth!!! "Oh, I just love getting frosting EVERYWHERE!!! I think it looks especially nice as a beard."
"I've also heard it is good for the hair. I'll smear it in there just for fun!"
