Miles' First Birthday Celebration

Miles was a bit leery when his mom, Brittany (my niece), presented him with his own personal birthday cake.

It didn't take long before he ventured to touch and taste it.

I suspect he's thinking "this stuff feels good AND tastes good."

A lot on his hands and face and a little in his belly, that's what it's all about.

The rest of us were served massive quantities of this colorful and delicious cake for dessert.  

Next, we moved on to the best part, Miles opening his presents.  What I wouldn't give to be a kid again!

Of course, Miles enjoyed playing with the ribbons as all one year olds do.  (That jack-in-the-box on the table has been around.  My son, Jared, received it as a gift when he was a baby; it was passed on to Brittany and now it's one of Miles' toys). 
Ya gotta love Miles' happy face!

Once again:  Happy Birthday, Miles from all
of your friends and family.
