All in all, Lee's first birthday party was a great success. I was a little disappointed that he was not more into his gift-opening. Our nephew did an excellent job at his first birthday party tearing off the paper and looking at each gift. (Although no other one-year-old I have ever witnessed has done this.) When I mentioned this to Bryan, he just said, "Yea, but he did much better with the cake." I guess each child has his own gift.
