A Long Celebration...

We have had so much fun celebrating Tatum's first Birthday!! It started on Wednesday where we took him to the Aquarium in Sandy for the first time. We went with all of Tatum's cousins and they had a blast! Tatum loved to see all of the fish...he especially loved the Jellies and the Sharks!! Afterwards we all went to Burger King for some dessert.

On Thursday we had Tatum's party. We had family and a few friends over for pizza and cake and opened presents. Tatum had so much fun opening his gifts...although we could of just gotten him a balloon and he would have been happy. Then Tatum got his first taste of birthday cake! He dug right into it, it was everywhere!!(Shannon I tried to make a cool birthday cake with no success! It was a disaster and I ran out of that explains the lame Birthday Cake :( Thanks for your help though!)

Today we went to visit Dr. Arnold for Tatum's 1 year check. He is finally on the charts...his weight is 19.5 lbs and is in the 10th % !! That is huge for a kid that was always 0% for weight :) Tatum has grown so much in the last month or two. He is now so close to walking...he can figure out how to get anywhere in the house just by scaling the walls. He also has been learning so much, he says uh-oh and knows what a dog and a horse say. It is so weird to think that I have a 1 year doesn't even seem like that long ago when I was in the hospital anxiously awaiting Tatum's arrival. We have come a long way.
