My First Birthday! January 24th-30th

Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me!  Happy Birthday to meee!  Happy Birthday to me!  It was my one year birthday on Tuesday!  I officially have a year under my belt now.  Here is the last of my monthly pictures.  I don't think we'll be doing this any more now that I'm 1.

Grandma wanted to take a picture with me on my birthday.

We all went to Chevy's for dinner.  I had already eaten but it was time for my folks to eat.

I got to eat some ice cream!

And what is up with this sombrero???  Whoa!  Where did THAT come from?  The Mexican food must have penetrated my brain.

Some times I like to eat.  Other times...

I look happy, don't I?

We went to try on some hats since I've already outgrown the others.  What do you think?  I could be a model, no?

Daddy said I look like Zha Zha Gabor.  Who is that?
Auntie Nathalie bought me this for my birthday.  I'm gonna get it!

What is up with my hair??

Apparently, when Mommy was feeding me, I dipped my head straight into the spoonful of food.  Now I have food caked in my hair like it's gel. 
Please oh please fix my hair.

Now that I'm one, I think I'm going to scale back on the weekly posts.  It requires a lot of time and I'd rather be up and moving around.  I will do my best to keep everyone posted every couple of weeks or so.

I'll leave you with a video.

Thanks for tuning in!  There will be more to come!


  1. The peak-a-boo session was the highlight of the week for me. We did a lot of practice with walking this weekend. E has increased his average from 3-4 steps per attempt, to 5-7 steps per attempt, and he is more stable and quicker on his feet. With some help, he has walked around the living room and kitchen multiple times!

    He's on the verge of walking on his own, yikes!

  2. Elliot, happy birthday!! Did you like your gift from Alyssa, Auntie Jen, and me? I'm going to be so sad since you won't be blogging regularly. What will I do on Mondays now? Can't wait to see you.

  3. That's a great video! Wow, can't believe a year has flown by already. Going to miss seeing the weekly updates and cute photos!

  4. happy first birthday elliot! love all the hats. at the rate you're growing you'll soon accumulate a whole closet full of hats!

  5. Aw, no more weekly updates? Just don't fall off altogether like Gabe OK? We long-distance aunties and uncles need our Elliot fix! Love the face in the sombrero pic, and the video is awesome! So cute :) I can't wait to finally meet you in a couple of weeks!!!

  6. I don't think I've ever commented, but I've loved all the pictures this year. Elliott's a very handsome guy and all the pictures make up for never seeing him in person......but I'm holding out hope that this might change someday.
