Before you begin: Please note there is an excess of pictures to capture these special moments for family who can't be here with us.
Although Piersen's birthday is March 12, we decided to celebrate with cake today (we will be travelling on Wednesday). As you can see, "rubber ducky" was our party theme. Pierce loves to be in his bath and so it was appropriate to honor him with a tubby type of party. And...his big brothers (and Daddy) are crazy about jell-o, so everyone was happy! The little duckies were a big hit for all the kids as each one took theirs outside to "play".
He was a funny little boy today. You will see from the progression of pictures how his emotions went up & down. I think everyone looking at him and singing to him kind of freaked him out - he cried a little - then calmed down when the cake arrived...and dug right in. But...all that ooey, gooey icing on his hand made him cry again...until he got a taste! The boy ate almost the entire piece and had a lot of fun playing with his yellow balloons.
We are so thankful for our little Piersen. He is special in so many ways - we love his fun personality and the brightness he brings to every day. As a Mom of three little boys, I am very thankful for how easy-going he is. He has made a smooth transition into our family and has blessed us tremendously. It has been a wonderful year! Reece and Chase are much better boys because of the presence of their little brother...and we are better too. His little life has changed us all. Piersen Benjamin, we love you so much. Happy birthday "handsome bandsome"!
