We threw a grand celebration for CJ for his first birthday. Okay, we had a few of Carter’s friends over and Mimi and Popop came up for his first birthday. No ponies or bounce houses. Or creepy clowns. *shudder*
There was mac and cheese (favorite food), cake, and lemonade. A perfect celebration for the sweetest little Lpod.
Carter’s buddy Keane loves climbing into highchairs. It’s almost always the first place he goes when he gets here.
Madeline was telling Carter about what she did on her first birthday. She’s much older (4 months) and wiser than this little one year old.
Poppop was there to spoil him and let him grab things from the table. When did he get tall enough to grab on to the table?
We played some music on our djembe (drum on the left) and with our egg shakers and rhythm sticks.
Then of course, there was cake smashing time!
After we smashed cake and were sufficiently on a sugar rush, we wrestled on the floor with Jack.
And of course we opened some presents from Grammy & Gramps.
And then we got really tired and blah as we crashed from our sugar rush.
Being a mom is fun. It’s like you get to celebrate two birthdays each year, because celebrating for your munchkin is so special. Happy birthday booger!
