Happy Birthday Ethan!!

Since Uncle Mike is here in town for a visit, we decided to throw an impromptu family birthday celebration for Ethan. Happy Birthday to our sweet sweet little boy! I can't believe that in one week he will no long be a little baby and instead be a big boy. Mommy and Daddy love you soooo much!

The Theme:
We decided to have an animal themed party. I think it turned out well considering we only had a few days to prepare.

The monkey cake was based on Martha Stewart's. I'm no Martha Stewart and my cake didn't look anything like hers - apparently it is not a good idea to sub baking powder for baking soda after all! =P Even though the cake didn't rise, it still tasted pretty good. It was Ethan's favorite - bananas!

Celebration Time!

Ethan liked batting at the balloons.

Happy Birthday!

We tried to get Ethan to smash the cake, but he just daintily poked at it. This was the most frosting we could get on his face. I guess we have a baby that doesn't like to get messy!

When we held up the monkey cake for Ethan to see he gave it a big ol' kiss! He does this thing when he sees his stuffed animals where he will hold it and rub his forehead on it's forehead and then kiss it. I think he thought the cake was another stuffed monkey!

Our sweet little boy! Muah!
