Can you believe it? One year. One year since little Caleb came into our lives and changed it for the better. My. My. My.  We had the immediate family over for a really small party because we had a pretty big Christening and I didn’t want to do a huge first birthday as well.

Caleb got to taste pizza for the first time which he LIKED but had a hard time swallowing. I don’t know why I thought he would be so different / advanced on his first birthday. HA!  Anyway – we tried a few pieces and then moved back to our tried and true favorites.

Then it was time for the cake. Ice cream cake. I gave him a big piece and left him alone. I thought he would LOVE digging in and getting to know ice cream.

Aft first he was curious… and then he just cried and cried. I think it was WAY TOO cold for him! Plus he is a little sick – so that didn’t help. Either way, we all sang to him and gave him his presents.

It was a great day. Happy Birthday little Caleb!
