He's talking and driving at a year old

I have made cakes for all the birthdays and special occasions in our family. I am self-taught, never had a lesson. Liam's birthday theme was trains, so I made Thomas the Tank Engine. He got so excited when he saw it.

Here's my little conductor waiting for guests to arrive.

His mom, my granddaughter, gave me this hat, sandals, blouse and earrings, and a beach bag for my birthday, so of course I had to model my hat. 
Liam toyed with the icing, licked it, thought about digging in, and then he did.
He ate almost an entire piece of cake and was so messy he had to have a bath.

Then his mama put him in his Thomas outfit, and it was present opening time. He liked the tissue paper best, but when he saw his last gift from his mommy and daddy, a little battery-operated four wheeler, he was so happy and couldn't wait to ride it. He knew exactly which button to press to make it go. But he still wants to use his feet to propel himself forward like he does with his ride on toys. 

He received so many gifts, a swimming pool, a wagon filled with goodies, Thomas the train toys and so many balls. He loves balls and says, "ball". This little guy is so loved. Both sides of the family, grandparents and great grandparents and cousins, aunts, uncles and friends came. What a party! 
God bless my little sweetie with many more birthdays.

Wow! He looks so grown up on his four-wheeler. Happy Birthday to Liam! Oh...and you look quite "breathtaking" in your hat.

Oh Linda, Liam is SUCH a lucky little fellow. He is adorable, too. Your Thomas the train cake was one of the best down the "track. It really is darling. You are talented! I couldn't do that.

Thanks for all your visits, too, Linda. Susan

Linda--It's hard to believe Liam is already one year old. What a lucky fellow he is to have a great-grandma like you.

Now in addition to grandma envy I have beach hat envy. I need one of those for our boat days at the lake. :) Liam is so adorable, and what a blessed child he is to be loved by so many. Happy birthday to your sweetie pie!

Awww! So cute - both the cake and Liam. They go from baby to toddler so fast, don't they? What a lucky little guy.
