First Birthday!

I know everyone always says this, but I can NOT believe that Marcus turned one last week!! This has been such an incredible year! We are so thankful that the Lord trusted us with the raising of this sweet child.

Marcus opening his first gifts from his Grandpa and Grandma Klaiber before we left for Omaha. They sent his gifts since they didn't know we were coming there because of the surprise!

He was so proud of himself he gave Cory a high five.
He really loved the tissue paper and being destructive.
His Auntie Dawn wrapped his gift so nicely.
And got him some of my favorite childhood books. I am so excited to read them with him.
He probably had the most fun opening this gift. He just crawled around the room pushing it around for about 10 minutes before someone opened it for him.
And of course no birthday is complete without Funfetti Cupcakes! To say that he loved them would be an understatement.
He was more excited about the balloons on the cupcake then the actual cupcake at first.
Eating the icing first...
And then digging in!
We couldn't be happier, he is truly amazing.
Picture with his Godparents...but he was more interested in finishing the cake.
One last gift from Grandma and Grandpa Klaiber- an awesome Puma tracksuit, which was perfect for the plane ride home!
