The birthday boy is sleeping, after a very fun day!
This morning, Joseph enjoyed a birthday breakfast of pancakes with applesauce, yogurt, bananas, blueberries, and cheerios!
He got to play a lot with Brian, while I set up for the party. He really loves his Daddy, and it is fun for me to see/hear them laughing together.
While I was frosting cupcakes, Joseph wanted to be held (as usual) to see what I was doing. He couldn't resist quietly sticking his little finger in the cupcake...
Once he got a taste, he got a little WILD, and this happened.
Then, I put him down, and this happened.
His two baby friends, along with their parents, and another of my friends (her baby couldn't come) came to Joseph's first party! We had Papa Murphy's pizza and a salad bar for dinner. For dessert, we had Rainbow Chip cupcakes, an Autumn Fruit Tart, and Peppermint fudge. Yum. The babies had to eat a little more healthy...
We have such generous friends and family, thank you again to all of you for your gifts /cards / calls! He is certainly a loved little boy!
For cupcakes/candles/singing, we left more of the lights on this time, and Joseph did much, much better.
Look at what a good sport his baby friend was at wearing a hat!!(notice that Joseph wasn't wearing one in any of the pictures...)
Where's Joseph? You ask,
Doing his own thing!
The three of them really get along well, with very few incidents. (and those are not really preventable yet so...)
Thanks again, everyone! We had a great time! We are so lucky to have found such great friends in Boise...
AND HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY JOSEPH!!!
(This time last year I was pushing...)
