Way Back When: 1st birthday

Dakota's 1st birthday party...January 28, 2007.

We are only a few days away from Dakota's 4th Birthday party.

We are a week away from Dakota's 4th birthday.

It was quite a memorable one. One that should have been recorded..but the pictures captured the fun...or should I say trauma!?!

After we lit the candle and placed the monkey cupcake in front of him, we started to sing ♫Happy Birthday to you♫ and Kota reached out for the blazing candle. Everyone gasped. But it wasn't a quiet was a gasp and shriek. That scared the crap out of Kota. That is why you see the calm picture first...Dakota just checking out the candle. And then the second picture, he is crying.

Kota is beside me while I am typing this...and He says, "that was me when I was a baby having a birthday." I told him, "yes, that was you when you were 1..that is why you have 1 candle. This year you get 4 candles."

Sharing pictures this Wednesday for Way Back When-esday. Playing along with Cheryl at Twinfatuation.

Time flies by so fast.

So hysterical that you have a "crying" image...we do too! (Apparently for us the birthday hat was a tremendous irritant to She-Twin!)

Great images, and happy almost birthday to Kota!

So happy you played along with Way Back When-esday this week--hope to see you back again next week!
