The Birthday Boy

Cutie Collin
"Oh, did you guys want some cake too?"
(I will have to locate these pictures, they got lost in my "move")

We ventured to the attic of Texas to help celebrate my dear nephew's 1st birthday this past weekend. He is actually a Valentine's baby. It was so good getting to see them all again. Now that they live 6 hours away we don't get to see them much. Bryan pulled out all the stops and made some awesome fajitas for all of the adults to enjoy. As you can see Collin much preferred HIS cake. He took to it like a champ, smashing both fists down in it as soon as Mommy set it down in front of him. The cameras flashed as he smeared himself with the cake. He was really enjoying himself. When Lindi took the cake away he gave her a glare and a grunt as if to say, "Hey, I wasn't finished with that." He has really turned into Mr. Personality since we last saw him around Christmas time. He isn't walking yet but he can stand by himself if he doesn't realize he's doing it. He doesn't speak any intelligible words yet. He babbles with great intent to himself and anyone who will listen. He likes to wrinkle up his little nose just like I remember his daddy doing when he was a wee one. And he sure has a temper; (also like his daddy) we were treated to a throw-back temper but it didn't last very long. The weekend was entirely too short and we didn't get to spend nearly enough time visiting. Hopefully we will get to see them all in two weeks when we are supposed to be doing a huge family camp out in the hill country.
