Liam turns one!

So, I've definitely neglected my blog for quite some time now and I think it's time to finally make a post again. On February 1st Liam turned one! I cannot believe my baby boy is a year old! Time flies so fast. It seems like yesterday I was in the hospital meeting him for the first time! This year his birthday fell on a Wednesday so we decided we would celebrate his birthday with the family on the following Saturday. We didn't let his actual birthday go unnoticed though. The morning of his actual birthday I got up and made him some birthday cake pancakes. Even though he had no idea of what was going on he definitely enjoyed his food. If any of you know Liam you know he does not ever refuse food! lol. Keith and I decided this year that we would do a medieval theme birthday party for him and the family. I found some medieval decorations online for a pretty inexpensive price. The party turned out great. We served lunch for all of the family and of course had Liam's cake and presents. It's always nice to get both sides of our family together. For Liam's cake, Keith made a dragon. He used fondant and cereal treats to help mold his cake. This was Keith's first cake to ever use fondant and I thought it turned out really nice! I made a castle cake (using a castle shaped cake pan) for everyone else and a few extra cupcakes. When it came time for Liam to blow out his candle Keith turned for a second and Liam took the flame out with his hand! Needless to say he was not a happy camper anymore! Luckily he didn't burn his hand, but it was enough for him to no longer take an interest in the dragon cake! We gave him a cupcake to dig into and then we cut open his dragon cake and then he started eating both. I look forward to many more great years with this wonderful boy. He truly is a blessing in our lives and Keith and I are so grateful.

OH! We also went to his 1 year check up and he now weighs 28 pounds and is 31.5 inches long! He is going to be a tall man one day!
