Cy's First Birthday Party

Annie, Kaha & I at a local establishment long after all the kiddies went to bed.

Mandy & Cooper. Cooper is going to be a big brother in October!

The moms (Ellen, Susan & Coryn) looking on.

Bea, the life of the party! Most of the time she was there she was running around carrying her cupcake tucked into her arm like a football.

Melissa (in black) already past her due date - still came!! Any day now Cy will have another little friend.

Patrick & Ian (Harlowe's dad) seemed close to the keg for a lot of the party...

Nothing was stopping him!

Discovering the taste of chocolate for the first time!

And the feast begins! Notice the plastic underneath the high chair!

Harlowe was our very first guest of the day!

Cy's party was this past Saturday & it was a blast! We ended up having somewhere btwn 50-70 people there. We went through about 70 hot dogs/brats, 25 twinkies, 20 nutty bars, 30 cupcakes, tons of chips, a barrel of beer and a box of wine!! Good times for both parents & kids!

The highlight was Cy eating cake for the first time. We bought him his very own 5 inch round chocolate cake. About an hour or two into the party everyone that was there gathered around & sang "Happy Birthday" to Cy as he sat in his high chair. His friend Selena helped him blow out his candle & then he tore into the cake. He did not make a peep as he shoveled fistful after fistful into his mouth. Occasionally he'd slowly caress the frosting with his finger tips and then grab another handful. Funniest thing I've seen in a long time! I caught a bit of it on video that I will put up.

He had a great time playing with all the different kids that were over. There were probably 15 kids or so! And then at 7pm we fed him one last time and sent him on to Grandma & Grandpa's house & the adults continued the party for the night! I am still tired from the festivities and our house still smells like sauerkraut! Fun fun!

This Friday my parents are coming up from Milwaukee & we will celebrate Cy's actual first birthday (May 9th) and Mother's Day together. I am hoping for good weather!
