Here is Ethan's first birthday cake. He had many guests to help him celebrate on his special day.

His mama and daddy helped him open gifts. There was a huge pile of them and I expect the little guy got a bit worn out with all that hard work, but he was patient as his mama read all the cards. He did get a little carried away playing with the pretty wrapping paper a few times, just like a one year old should. In this shot, Ethan is wearing a new hat which he loved.

He loves his new wheels too! Only a year old and not quite walking yet, but he figured out how to make this little car go in record time. Isn't he the cutest?

Ok, here's the big moment. Cake time! His mama made a special little cake just for him to do with as he wished.

As you can see in this picture, Ethan wasn't sure what he was supposed to do with it. His daddy and mama helped him figure it out by putting their own fingers in that sweet sticky icing, then putting Ethan's hands in it.
Ok, now he has it. Not just fingers, but entire hands are exploring the little cake. Frosting is beginning to travel up his arms, even to his chubby little elbows. Isn't it sort of funny how at one year we encourage them to play in their birthday cake and shortly after that we are teaching them not to play in their food? LOL

Now he's enjoying the feel of the icing between his fingers and has even had a little taste of it. He seemed more interested in playing with it than eating it. By the looks on their smiles, his mama and daddy are thoroughly enjoying little Ethan's first birthday party.

Looking at these pictures and seeing a perfect and healthy little boy, I can't help remember what it was like a year ago when he was an infant having seizures. I thank God for all of you who took this little child into your heart and offered up prayers for his healing.
Once again I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
And thank you my dear Heavenly Father for your loving mercy.
