Happy Birthday Andrew

Andrew is 1 year old. We are so blessed to have him in our family. He is such a special little boy. He has a tender heart and a loving spirit. He is very patient with his sister and loves playing with her every day. He is also protective of Mommy. If I leave the room he has to know where I am and when I will be back. We love you very much Andrew. You brighten our lives each day.
Andrew is 20 lbs 15 ounces. He is a great eater. He will eat just about anything you give him. His current favorite is watermelon. He eats it at every meal. He is strong and healthy. He keeps up with his sister with some speed crawling and will take 3-4 steps at a time. It won't be long before he is running faster than Elizabeth.
For his birthday we wanted to give him a Tonka Truck. Ever since my first summer job driving a giant "Tonka" I wanted my little boy to have his own. The first thing he did when he opened it was crawl in the truck bed. Look at the smile on that boy's face. Andrew also many other fun toys and we are all grateful for family and their generosity.

For Andrew's cake I tried to make it look like a Tonka truck. My Grandmother had given me the M&M's a couple of days earlier. Thanks Grandma, I couldn't have finished this project without them.
Andrew wasn't quite sure about the cake. The frosting was really sticky.He did eat a little of it, but mainly just squished it in his fingers.

All the young Olsen cousins enjoying lunch.
Thank you to everyone who came to spend the day with Andrew or sent cards and gifts. We love all of you.

Looks like fun birthday party for young and old. The Tonka truck will be great for moving dirt and snow in a few years. Cute cake!
