He's getting to be so old

There were so many good things about today. Simon slept 11 hours last night. He woke up cheerful. He laughed a lot. And most importantly he turned 1! We took lots of pictures of the occasion, but my favorite picture is in my mind. It is of Simon riding on Micah’s shoulders as we walked home from the train station. We raced parts of the way and Simon’s head flew back as Micah ran and he laughed and laughed and laughed. I can’t get enough of that laugh.
He appreciated the phone calls and the letters, but he had a hard time getting into the idea of eating birthday cake (actually birthday fruit pizza). It was so fun to see him open his presents. At first he was really afraid of the little dog from Grandma and Grandpa Blackhurst, but he warmed up to it pretty quick. And he seems to like the blocks we got him. It was a busy day for him and he fell asleep so fast after all the excitement.
