(thanks to my amazing brother for this photo and the one below)
Today Michael is one year old. We spent the day traveling (we're back in the Northeast for a few months, for anyone keeping track) but on Saturday we celebrated with family and friends in Austin. There was barbecue, cake, kids running around playing, lots of catching up and giving hugs and picture-taking. It was a really special day. We celebrated this happy, healthy little character and he loved every bit of the attention (see above).
He also loved every bit of the cake. (Good cake makes my toes curl too.)
(thank you, Dad, for this shot)
After a quick mid-party bath he opened presents in his diaper and played until he dropped.
Because when you're one you can do that, and it's just plain cute.
