Sylas ("Man of the Forest") is officially ONE! He enjoyed sharing his birthday with Earth Day...and celebrated with helping his siblings and their schoolmates clean up a beach that is near their school.
In the evening after dinner, Sylas got his own birthday cake to dig into. All of us anxiously anticipated how Sy would react. I asked him if he wanted cake, and he started kicking and waving his arms around. Sylas has never had cake before, but he sure reacted strongly to the word "cake". Kids must innately know that cake is good! He immediately slapped his hands down on the cake, and proceeded to lick the frosting off of his hands.
Although Sylas is still small, this picture is a little reminder of how much he has grown over the past year. I am working on a photo slideshow of his 1st year, and I will post that when it is finished.
