Tyler: 1st Birthday Party
Wow, where does the time go? I can't believe we celebrated Tyler's 1st birthday over a month ago already! Here's a quick recap of his day.
Tyler really doesn't have a favorite theme at this age, so I just went with the blue/brown and giraffe theme from his nursery. Here's the wall I put together celebrating his first year. My niece and I made the birthday banner, thanks Lyndsay for all your help! On the left I hung his newborn sleeper and onesie and on the right I hung his 12m onesie and sleeper to show how much he's grown in a year.
I created this poster collage with all his monthly photos.
Mr. Giraffe wore the birthday hat.
Homemade giraffe cupcakes, thank you Mandy and Patti for all your help!!!

"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"
Video: Tyler not happy about the high chair!
Showing off his stunt while everyone clapped turned the tears to huge giggles.

His very first taste of sugar and really not too thrilled about it.

The celebration continued in the backyard with all kinds of water activities for the kiddos.

His absolute favorite gift, a vacuum cleaner!
He pushed this thing around for hours!
... and a visit from Gpa and Gma was quite a spectacular gift as well!
