Birthday bash, part 1

Whoever said that "one is the loneliest number" had no idea what they're talking about. Because the day I turned one was one of the best—and least lonely—days of my life! So many family and friends came over to help me celebrate my big day.

I knew the day was going to be great when Dad came home with lots of balloons...

I love, love, love balloons! I was excited to see them first in the morning, then again after the party when Dad corralled them all back inside. In fact, I even figured out how to get access to them myself.

And what do I love just as much as "ball"s (my word for balloons)? Actual balls! Mom and Dad didn't disappoint there either. They bought me a backyard maze of tunnels, that were filled with balls to play with. I, along with all the other kids, had fun both outside the tunnels...

...and inside.

As terrific as it was to see so many family and friends, I was especially happy to meet a few of my blog's most loyal readers for the first time. Here I am with Aunt Halina.

And then I met Audrey and her mom Kirsten, who grew up across the street from Mom when they were both little.

Audrey was nice enough to play with me in the tunnels.

We got along so well! And because I know how much Audrey likes to watch my videos here on the blog, I asked Dad to put Audrey in one of them. So here's a video of Audrey amd me playing together. At the end, Dad panned all around the backyard, so you can see all the well-wishers who were on hand for my birthday.

That's it for part 1. Look for part 2 later today, featuring...cake!
