Happy Birthday to Benjamin! He's 1 year old already! Can you believe it?!?
Benjamin's birthday cake, made to look like his favorite stuffed animal, "Dodger Bear." Here, we were about to sing "Happy Birthday" to him. He was bawling though by the time everyone cheered. He just doesn't like being the center of attention.
He loved digging his hands in his birthday cake. Benjamin was a huge mess by the end and had to take a dip in the sink to clean off.
Benjamin got a new stuffed animal--a seagull! He loves his animals! They all live in his crib and are his nap-time buddies.
Here's Benjamin with his favorite new toy. He plays it with great exuberance and vigor.
