One year old

So, by some definitions we no longer have a baby. SA turned 1 this morning at 8:42am, and he is toddling around these days, however clumsily - 2 or 3 steps at a time before he notices that he's nowhere near the support of a chair or a firetruck or a mother and falls to his knees.

The park continues to be a big favorite - he pushes his firetruck around, and he climbs the stairs and goes down the slide. He spends lots of time driving the train too, and sometimes he just sits and collects all the balls that go by.

And today was a birthday party! Just some family, and some friends who happened to be in town. To my little guy, balloons are even more exciting than balls, but we figured out that eventually his enthusiasm would lead to a loud pop, right in his face (and, I suppose, a bit of a choking hazard.)

Finally, any good party needs a cake. Before and after:

Aw! Happy Birthday to Spencer!

Also, is his hair getting lighter, or is it just the photos?

We're discussing... maybe it is? Ola and he spend a fair bit of time outside, so maybe it's getting a bit sun-bleached.
