Charlie's 1st birthday!!

Sunday (the 25th) was Charlie's first birthday! We had a party for him at his Grandma and Grandpa Allen's house. We had lots of fun guests like, Pawpaw and Gran (all the way from Tennessee), aunts, uncles, cousins, Granny and Gramps (Rose), Mamaw Nean, and even Momma's friend Kelly! Charlie sure doesn't starve for attention!

Here, Charlie is just engaging in a little dinnertime conversation (actually lunch) with the family before opening his gifts.

Gifts, by the way, were not in short supply!

Charles got lots of new clothes, some cool toys (some noisy ones too - thanks Uncle Mark!), and a fun pool for the summer.

Daddy just had to help him figure out how to really get into the cake - he wasn't quite sure he liked all that sticky icing on his fingers...

...but then he figured out that he did!!

And then, Charlie went for a little swim. I don't know if this makes me a bad momma or not, but I didn't make him wait 30 minutes after he ate!

Interestingly enough, the water hose was the favorite water toy by far!! Who'd have thought?!?

And then, Sir Charles finished off his evening with a relaxing swing. Happy Birthday baby boy!!

Sounds like Charlie had a great birthday. Mary Kate turns one in 10 days. She is getting a swing too from us and a kitchen thats just her size.
