I think that it turned out to be a very good first birthday for him thanks to our friends and family that were able to join us!
Once he found out that underneath the cake there was a picture of Elmo he just wanted to play with the plate and throw the cake off.
Dawson loved eating the cake, he really loved being able to squish it in his chubby little fingers.
I'm not sure he understood why he got to open gifts again but he enjoyed all his wonderful birthday gifts from friends and family. He is a lucky boy and got so many fun things. Here is Dawson opening some presents, and yes Dave is wearing an Elmo shirt. He was such a good sport and wore it the whole night just for Dawson:)
Dawson turned ONE! Yep it's true my little guy had his first birthday and we had a fun party for him. During the day mom and dad took the birthday boy out to lunch then made sure that he got a nice long nap to get ready for the big party :) The theme was of course Elmo, and he had everything with Elmo on it from cup cakes to the party hats. Here are the pictures of the cake and the cupcakes. Keep in mind that I made everything so the crazy looking cupcakes are supposed to be Elmo's face.
