Romes Birthday!!

Today was Roman's first birthday. All day long i'd tell Roman "Happy birthday!" I think he thought it was a new game :) he'd smile and laugh. The morning started out rough- he was awake for probably only 20 min around 9 and then fell back asleep till almost 1! he woke up happier :) we then went to dollar tree to get some balloons. It was fun being with him. We had a small blue/green party at our house around 3- it was super sweet and fun! Rome had his own cake and received some special presents. He got loaded up on sugar and didn't fall asleep tonight till around 11:30 (thank you sugar!) he LOVED having people over and we LOVED watching him.

Here's a few pics of the day!
