Happy Birthday Abram Oak

Happy Birthday Abram Oak Rickstrew!

Abram turned ONE YEAR OLD last Thursday.

Once a year he gets to eat on his special birthday plate...a favorite gift of ours from Gigi and Grandpa here in Texas.

We had big plans to have a picnic at a local nature reserve but it rained and poured all daylong so we stayed inside and celebrated. I made banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and I am sure more of it went into Abram's hair and clothes than in his mouth.

This was Abram's first experience with opening gifts. He didn't really know what to think of it...but a soft and furry card from Grandma that squeaked when you pinched it was his absolute favorite. It really got him in the mood to see what was next.

Grandma and Grandpa bought him a Radio Flyer push wagon which clicks when the wheels turn. Riley got the idea that since Abram doesn't walk quite yet, why doesn't Abram sit inside the wagon and Riley will push him around? This is how we spent the rest of the afternoon...watching Riley and Abram have a blast while touring our tiny home.

Happy Birthday my sweet son!!!
