I was up until midnight the night before getting things set up.
(See him “helping” on the couch with his eyes closed?)
Joseph came into the kitchen that morning with a big smile as we all said “Happy Birthday!”
Presents were first on the agenda (of course)
I love these pictures because of Brian cracking up in the background.
He was laughing at all of the things I was making the Batman figurine say to the Joker figurine.
Things like “Looks like the jokes on you, Joker.”
and “Eat bat guano.”
You know, the usual.
Joseph kept asking if it was “party time”…meaning “cake time.”
I forgot to buy party hats at the store the day before (curses!)
and since almost all of the stores around here are closed on Sunday (?) I couldn’t find any.
Cue a disappointed, slightly teary-feeling Caitlin, because not only does her baby not have any family or friends for his birthday, he doesn’tevenhaveapartyhathowcouldIhaveforgotten!!!….you get the picture.
Brian to the rescue!!- All he needed was paper and a staple gun, and voila!
Joseph was thrilled.
And Isaac looks like a beautiful princess.
After a dinner of chicken nuggets and corn dogs (Joseph’s favorites) we turned out the lights and sang happy birthday.
It was so special.
Just the four of us, in our new home, with Joseph just absolutely glowing with happiness.
(he looked like this the whole time)
in!! (FACE FIRST!)
Maybe he thought it was a cupcake? Maybe he thought it just looked so delicious?
I started to stop him, then realized, why not?!
So Brian and I grabbed forks and joined him. (who needs plates?!)
Also, Isaac got his first taste of chocolate cake.
(See his CRAZY eyes?!)
After teeth brushing, Joseph was thrilled to be able to choose THREE books since he is now THREE years old. He thought it was HILARIOUS!
