Here's Mitch on his actual birthday, before going to school. I think this might be our last elephant picture as it was not easy to get him to sit still for this!

So we got Mitch a kiddie pool for his birthday...it's pretty cool, has lots of inflatable parts and little fountains that shoot water if you keep the hose turned on. His party was on a very hot day and even some of the adults were hanging out in the pool.
Birthday hats are a must and Mitch kept his on long enough so we could take a few photos.
Mitch got a Valentines Day card from Grandma and Grandpa M with Winnie-the-Pooh on it. It's been on our refrigerator and Mitch just loves it. He plays with it, reaches for it, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to get rid of it even though by now it has ripped in half and is very bent. So because he loves it so much I decided to make a cake with the same picture on it and I think it turned out pretty good. It did take a long time but it was worth it!
I think Mitch thought he would be able to hold the cake like he holds the Winnie-the-Pooh card so we had to go back inside to get the card for him to have to avoid a giant mess and assure there would be some cake to eat!
Not too sure about the whole cake-thing...he ate a few bites and then signed "all done". He did want to eat more when he saw mom and dad eating some though! No smashing or making a big mess this time, maybe next year...
