Carter is one year old!
For Carter's 1st birthday party we invited friends and family over for pizza, cake and games. Of course every game revolved around balls in some way. We kicked balls around cones, we shot balls into the hoop, we threw balls to knock over pins and we played hot potato with a ball instead of a potato. I thought Carter would really get into the games, but he was much more interested in watching the other kids play.
Once he understood that the cake was for him he thoroughly enjoyed it. Though he never actually got to the cake part. He got hung up on the frosting.
It's amazing how much work goes into a little kids birthday party. After it was all over I wondered if it was even worth it. We enjoyed it, but it was a bit overwhelming for Carter. He never could quite decide if "this" was fun or just plain torture.
He got so many gifts that we decided to save some for the next day. As you can see he's still not sure about it. What kid doesn't get excited over presents?!
We captured the birthday cake trauma on video.
