Happy 1st Birthday, Charlie!

Charlie celebrated his first birthday this past Wednesday on July 31st!  We were at the "Phoenix house" for his birthday as Mommy was there for the Big Break audition (a golf reality show) and also for another Cactus Tour event.  I had golf earlier that morning so I only got to see the birthday boy when he woke up from his nap.  He still cries every time I walk into the room, but at least now he knows he needs to put his binky back into his crib - too cute!
Charlie didn't get a big "1" made out of rice krispies like Graham's first birthday. Shhh... don't tell him! Instead, the birthday boy got a cupcake which he was actually quite excited about!  
Although when it came time to eat it, Charlie didn't do too much damage to it:
He sort of just poked at it with his finger:
On the other hand, Big brother Graham was tucking in quite nicely into his "cotton candy" cupcake:
Alright, time to open up his present.  Graham helped, of course:
It's Tickle-me Elmo!
Like everything else, we need to "taste" Elmo first:
Okay, now we have to turn it on.  Charlie's thinking - How long is this going to take???
Once Elmo was turned on, I think Charlie really liked it!
And finally, a birthday card from Grandma and Pop-pop:
Nice!  $1 for a first birthday!  Thanks to Grandma and Pop-pop for all the awesome new clothes too!
