 Ava's birthday image for Sol on the chalkboard...
 Cyrus's birthday image for Sol on the chalkboard... (baseball gloves, balls, symbols, and bats, and rocket ships)
 A bowl of rainbow fruit salad made out of pompoms... (cherry, orange, lemon, melon, blueberries, and eggplant)  Ava's concept of fruit salad often involves a few unexpected items.
 His very first birthday charm in his birthday ring...
 Watermelon for lunch...
 Obligatory  birthday crown photo op...  (before it gets torn off and thrown to the ground)
 Sprinkles cupcakes...  (if your not going to bake your own, why not go all out?)
 Cyrus made baby doll... (adorable, but so snuggled I couldn't get a good photo)
A set of baby books lovingly crafted by Ava.

This smaller scale birthday party is such an important part of who we are as a family.  Its small.  Its lovely.  And we all look forward to them every year, no matter how grand the big party is.

Happy first birthday my precious little sun.

Following up the big party with cupcakes is a great tradition of ours.
