Emmett's First Birthday Party

Today we celebrated Emmett's birthday with family.

Here's the cake I made for him. Since Emmett couldn't request anything, and I didn't give him chocolate on his actual Birthday (which my Mom thinks was neglectful), I decided to go with Travis' request and do the same as his birthday cake: 2 layers of chocolate cake with a brownie layer at the base. But this time, instead of doing all chocolate frosting inside the way Travis likes it, I did it with my preferred raspberry filling... AND, of course, a monkey for our little monkey!

Emmett enjoyed opening his gifts!

All the boys admiring a new toy.

Then it was time to cut the cake

And sing "Happy Birthday"

Emmett grabbed the cake with his left hand and for good measure picked up the plate with his right...

... and shoved the whole thing in his face! It was so funny!

The cake eating went really well (he ate pretty much the whole thing) until...

... Emmett started getting tired and rubbed his eyes!

Poor guy

Other than his poor eyes, I think my sweet Birthday Boy had a good time!

Happy First Birthday, Emmett!

The pictures with cake all over his face just make me laugh. Happy Birthday!

Love the photo of the 3 boys checking out a new toy. Emmett's big eyes and the seriousness of all of them. You'd think it was a new puppy.
Way to go Emmett...if you're going to eat chocolate you might just as well get down and dirty!

Happy Birthday to Emmett! THat cake looks awesome. Wouldn't want to be the one cleaning him up after he ate it though.

I cannot believe he is 1!!! I remember changing his diaper in the hospital and it feels like that was only a couple months ago... Happy Birthday Emmett!
