Oliver's real birthday party took place that Saturday. Amy and Jamir drove up to party with us (It is a long drive. They are the best!) Colt, Ashley, and Madi came as well. It was pretty low key, but fun to celebrate. We had hot dogs and hamburgers. Chris made Oliver a train cake. It was awesome! Unfortunately, Oliver didn't go crazy for it. He kind of poked it with his finger and delicately ate a little bit of it. So it wasn't the crazy, shove in your face first birthday cake moment, but it was still a good time. He was maybe tired and just wanted to play instead. That's okay. We love our boy. He got a magnetic alphabet from the Reece family and a shape puzzle from Amy and Jamir. We gave him a xylophone. He also had opened up fun little cars and rug to play with them on from my parents on his actual birthday. Oliver is a loved little man! He was pretty skilled at opening the gifts up. The adults rounded the evening off by playing some Kill Doctor Lucky. We're grateful for good friends and family. And we are happy our baby is one!
