Isaac's Birthday

We started out the day with some fun decorations...

He wasn't quite a fan, the balloons were a little scary. We had eggs and toast for breakfast snapped some of our monthly photos and headed out the door for his 1 year check-up appointment.

Isaac weighed in at 23 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 31.75" long! Tall and lean! Just a check up, hearing he looks great. He did get his finger poked for some lab tests (hemaglobin, iron levels) and two shots (third and final round of pneumococcal and his first dose of Hep B.

After the doctors visit we headed to Sweet Retreat on 50th & France to pick up Isaac's birthday cupcake. Came home, Isaac fell asleep in the car, so Kyle stayed outside with him while he caught some zzz's and I came in to start lunch. We had some fried rice then celebrated by singing happy birthday and digging into our cup cakes!!! YUM!

Then we wanted to do something fun, so we went to the Eden Prairie Center (just an indoor mall) that had a play place. Isaac had fun watching the other kids run around, trying to run around himself, and just exploring the climbing structures. He wore himself out then we came home.

Everybody took an afternoon nap, then we had tacos for dinner and headed to the basement to open presents. (not until we tried to capture a family photo, but Harpo would NOT cooperate! Oh well!)

We opened presents, skyped/facetimed with the family, and got all tuckered out for bed.

It was a fun day, I think Isaac had a good time and was finally catching on that it was a special day for him by the end of the day.
