Chase's 1st birthday

Yes, his birthday party was quite a while ago but I'm yet again trying to catch up, so here it is!

Chase's birthday party was actually on the day after his birthday because the night of his birthday was the General Priesthood meeting, and we had a baby shower to go to that night too. We had thought it would be fun to have the party outside since the entire week it had been warm and the weather had been gorgeous, but of course the day of the party it snowed. We were having grilled chicken for dinner, and poor Derek had to go outside in the wind and snow to cook it. (It was very yummy though!) Derek's parents were on skype with us when we did the birthday cake, that's why you see him holding up his laptop in front of Chase.

Chase wasn't too sure exactly what was going on at first. He did really like the Happy Birthday song though!

We got some video of him eating his birthday cake. I think he had more fun throwing it on the floor than eating it!

After cake we had presents. Ethan and Julia really enjoyed opening his presents, ha ha, but did let Chase help.

And of course he had to taste the wrapping paper!

Daphne enjoyed the presents too, especially one of the boxes. She decided that it would be a perfect chair!

Chase had tons of presents, but I think he had just as much fun playing with the boxes and wrapping paper.

Happy Birthday to my baby boy!

Chase's 1 year stats: 31.5 inches tall (90th percentile) and 21.8 pounds (30th percentile).
