Quinn's first birthday was a blast! We traveled to Alabama to celebrate with family. Quinn enjoyed a personal Sponge Bob cake at his great aunt and uncle's house on Dog River and homemade Mickey Mouse cupcakes a couple of days later at his grandparents' house. Drawing the ears with icing is A LOT harder than you think! Amazingly, Q knew exactly what to do with the cake AND the gifts! He got the "sugar shivers" because the icing was so sweet. On Thursday, August 27, he decided it was time to walk on his own! He and I also spent special time together as I told him his birth story and our trials with hurricane Ike two weeks later. I've complained so much about my difficulty with parenthood and being a first-time mom. But on August 28, 2009, it was all worth it! My tiny 7 1/2 pound baby boy has grown into a little man and I can't imagine a world without him!
