We celebrated Ralph's first birthday on Tuesday with a banana muffin, brunch at Blue's Egg, a trip to the zoo, presents, two baths, cake, and a little birthday dinner with my sister and her family. Ralph got so many sweet gifts and cards and phone calls and messages. There was a lot of love going on the whole day long. Ralph took it all in very seriously and curiously, like he knew something was up, and by the end of the day we were all wiped out. Birthdays can take the tuck out of you, that's for sure.
If you're interested in seeing Ralph destroy his cake and wave to some fishies at the zoo, I made a little video of the day. It took me nearly two nights to make, and I almost gave up, but now that I have the hang of how to do it, I might make 14,939 more.
Happy birthday to you, little Ralphie. We love you so!
