Emerson's Birthday

We celebrated Emerson's birthday on Monday. It was such a fun day. When we woke up we had waffles and ice cream. Emerson thought that was so good. It was so fun watching him eat ice cream for the first time.
Then, we played for a while until Emerson got sleepy and took a nap. During his nap we set up for his birthday party. Then he woke up and we went out and took pictures. He was being so cute.

After getting pictures, we put up the finally birthday decorations and waited for Emerson's friends to come over.
He loved playing with the balloons.

Here is the cake that he ate later in the evening.

He had a lot of presents. He is one spoiled boy.
Here is the cake for the adults. It was GOOD!!!
The guest arrived. The kids played while the adults talked. It was fun having some friends over to celebrate with him. I wish that our place was bigger so we could have had more people over. But it was still fun with who we had.
Emerson got his own cake to himself. He loved eating it. By the end he was a mess and ReALLY full. (He did end up throwing most of it up during the night. Jason walked into his bedroom in the morning and said that it was the first time that throw up made him want to eat birthday cake.)

After we gave Emerson a bath and the guest had gone, he opened up all the present from us and relatives. He really had fun doing that. I was nervous that I was going to open them all like I did at Christmas, but he did a really good job of opening all of his presents. He got some fun new toys and a Vinyl wall Alphabet to put into his room.
Emerson had a great birthday. We love you Emerson and can't wait to see you grow this next year!

Happy Birthday Emerson!
I love the line that it was the first time throw up made him want to eat birthday cake. Haha, classic.
I can't believe how big he is getting! It's crazy how fast time flies. Seems like you were just pregnant!
Love the birthday party decorations and cake. Wish we could have been there to celebrate with you!
