Wordless Wednesday: First birthday for Alrik!

Can you believe my baby turned one?

Mikko was ever so helpful when it came to present opening.

Although Alrik did get to pull some paper.

Robeez! Nom nom.

This paper is quite good, too. (Why do we buy babies toys??

Now we attempt to get a photo of him smiling showing all his teeth. He’s been doing it for a few weeks but never in front of a camera.

Almost…

He's so coy…

There we go! All eight of those chompers.

Just a slight jump to later in the day, when Mikko gave Alrik his birthday present: a frog that sticks out its tongue.

It was a hit!

Mikko participated in every step of the cake-making, from cracking the eggs to measuring the ingredients to stirring and pouring and decorating.

Look at the gleam in Mikko's eyes. There's a born pyro.

Good thing big brother is here to help.

Then we just sat back and watched Alrik go.

I cannot believe he's ONE! Where did the year go?! Alrik is such a cutie and Mikko is a great big brother.

BTW...Love those "That's Not My..." series books. Each of my kids have enjoyed them.

Wonderful photos of brotherhood!

Even though my baby turned a year old, and I know Alrik is almost the same age, for some reason it still surprises me that he is one! Second (and third, etc) babies fly by faster, I think.

Happy birthday to a beautiful little fellow!

Happy Birthday to your sweet little one and happy birthing day to you! I always feel the first birthday is more about the mamas celebrating their first year as a mother to this little being than about the party, cake, etc. Rightfully so! Such cute pictures. Looks like fun had by all!
