Here is what Alan looked like before we left, and here is what he looks like now. He had his very first birthday party today and it really sucked that we were not there. I was thinking about him all afternoon. His actual birthday was Thursday and I feel really bad that I missed blogging it on that day. I for some reason was under the impression that his birthday party was on the day of his birthday, thinking today was the 4th! Bad Aunt award to me! I can't wait to see pictures of him with the toy I bought him! I just hope he gets 1/2 as much use out of it as the one that BJ and Kelly bought Joey for his birthday!
