Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my birthday, but I had to wait until today to celebrate, since it is Saturday.  Mommy decided on a duck theme since that was one of my first words (of course after she decided on the theme, I quit saying the word ;).  Check out all the cool stuff at my party.  Here is the duck cake that Mommy worked really hard on and stressed over for days.  Great job Mommy, it is awesome!
Here are the cupcakes Mommy made in case we ran out of duck cake.  
Here are my duck sandwiches that Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly made for the party.  They were super tasty and we have plenty left over if anyone wants some duck PB&J sandwiches.  Thanks Uncle Andrew & Aunt Kelly!
Mommy & Daddy even spent the last month making duck ice.  
Here is Mommy and Daddy showing me all they had done for me.  I'm confused - this sure is a lot of ducks!
I even have a duck shirt on that says 'I'm 1'
Before cake time, I went around to see everyone that had come to my party.  Here is me and my buddy, Julia
And then I went to see Gracen in Rylie's kennel
And then it was cake time.  Everyone sang Happy Birthday to Me!
Then, Mommy cut off the head of the duck and gave it all to me.  Believe it or not, I didn't really care about eating cake.  
But Julia wanted to help me with my duck head.
Ok, I will at least try it
Daddy, do you want some?
And then it was present time!!!!!!!  I got so many cool presents - thanks everybody!  Here is my opening my new keyboard from Grammy.  Cool!
I was tired from all the festivities, so Daddy opened my next gift.  Grammy made me 3 outfits, wow!  Thanks Grammy!
Gangi & Pop Pop got me my very own chair.  I can't wait to play with all my new toys in my cool chair!
And then Gracen gave me a microphone.  It is definitely Daddy's favorite gift!
Thanks everyone for all my presents!
Then we all went outside to play with my new swing that Mommy & Daddy bought me, but that Uncle Andrew was so nice to hang for me.  He had to cut back a bunch of limbs and go to Lowe's to get a chain.  Thanks Uncle Andrew, Mommy & Daddy - this swing is cool!
Then Gracen took a turn.  I think she liked it too.
And finally I rode around the yard in my car.  
Oh wow, what a fun day.  Thanks to everyone who came to my party - I had a blast!
After my 2 1/2 hour nap, Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kelly came and took my picture again - I will post pictures soon.  Good night everyone - I'm tired!  Thanks to everyone who made my birthday a special one!
