Oh man..I think Aidan wouldn't need to get anymore toys, books and clothes till he's about 16. Thanks for all ur wonderful gifts and more importantly, you coming to his party and celebrating his first birthday with him! Hope u guys enjoyed yourself!
Honestly, yesterday was a blur..! I only remembered that it was relatively 'peaceful' till about 1.30pm and that was when most of the guests arrived. Aidan was somewhat 'blur' and he looked quite awed by the huge turnout. Had 'trained' him to clap to the tune of happy birthday and he had been doing so well for the past few days but when the actual time for him to do so, he just looked dazed! hehe.. After that, he was so tired that he dooshed in hubby's & mom-in-law's arms.
I think the party went pretty well. I enjoyed it alot (if I can recall correctly) hehe..We got Aidan a HUGE cake in the pattern of his name..Thought that since we were never in the habit of getting him monthly cakes, his one year old birthday cake must then be a big big one to make up for it. And he sooo loves chocolate. By the time we brought it back upstairs, only the letter A was left so I'm gonna have A cake for breakfast for the next few days :P..
I hope Rachel, Tenny & Ryan enjoyed it as much as we did. I really have to thank two of my girlfriends, Bibi and Corrina..Both of them came without their kids..Renee wasn't feeling well and Corrina decided not to bring Chloe becuz if she had, she won't be able to help me out with the party. They were really a godsend...assisting me with the 'registration', gift exchange and photo-taking.
Anyway, here are some pics of the day itself. I don't have that many nice group birthday cake blowing/cutting pics [especially one of all 6 of us) so those who had brought their cameras that day and have some nice ones, please email those pics to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (in original format) so that I can upload it in my album :)
The lighting of the candles :) Doesn't the cakes look pretty n yummy?
