Lucky for him, we had several days of birthday. We had opened the kitchen a few days early so really extend the excitement of the gifts. He still loves it. Apparently all he ever makes is "coooookies." Can't blame him :)
Playing with the Kitchen
Chase was pretty sick all week, so his sleeping schedule was completely crazy. He fell asleep right before dinner the day before his birthday and woke up at 10:00 PM ready for the day. Since that would obviously throw off his birthday morning, we decided to give him his presents then. It was practically midnight anyway :)
Marcus and I had bought him some pants, which he's been wearing all week, and a Buzz Lightyear. Chase is really into Toy Story right now. He would watch any of those movies every single day if I'd let him. He has a Woody doll, but he didn't have Buzz yet. Marcus was especially excited about that gift. He took it out early to inspect it and make sure it was in proper working order.

Chase really understands this whole unwrapping gifts thing. He loves to open everything. It makes me excited for Christmas and more wrapping paper :)
Opening a present
Chase really loves getting cards in the mail. (He must think more birthday cards are coming because now he opens bills left on the table too.) He will carry the cards around and "read" them multiple times. It's super cute. He has a paper bag from Magnolia Bakery where he keeps his cards and carries them around the apartment. It's really fun.

This was a little late, but it was technically a birthday gift too. We'd been talking about getting a rug to put in the bedroom by Chase's bed but hadn't. Finally we had the idea to get a fun rug that could also be played with. It's working out great. Chase loves to line up his cars on it, and it's great to have something on the cold floor when we get Chase in the morning.
A thank you from Chase...
