It was Oscar's first birthday today. We gathered together some friends and family in the park at the end of the street and celebrated and took some photos. Here's a very short synopsis of the day:

It is true, boxes are fun!

So are cupcakes:

The festivities were long and he missed his nap, so he more or less passed out as soon as things were wrapping up with my parents:

Sleepy baby

It's been a pretty intense year for me with Oscar: assisting at his birth, toughing it through baby sleep cycles, figuring out travelling with him, — being off work to help care for him, seeing a lot of his firsts (or first-time-we-spotteds), starting to be able to do stuff that really counts as interactive play, jumping into balancing work and baby… he's a fast developing creature, so in some ways I'm figuring him out and in others he'll be a few steps ahead of me for some time to come.

Oscar's latest tricks have been dancing to music, backing up to and sitting down on raised things (like me) and going for light switches and the telephone in the kitchen — and in the case of light switches, turning to look and make sure the light has changed.

I think the next thing for Oscar will probably be the beginnings of words. Any guesses what his first recognizable ones will be?

Happy first birthday to Oscar!

I suspect the first year is the hardest. Well, actually probably the hardest is when they start running places and you can't catch that, but the first year is probably the biggest adjustment!

apologies again for missing it, but I don't think the flu is an appropriate birthday present. :|
