Oh my, lots to tell about today!
The first fun thing that happened was J got a haircut! I know babies are supposed to have baby curls, but his hair was just getting ridiculous! So, while my mom’s hair cooked, it was J’s turn! He did such a fabulous job. No crying, just curiousness and fun!
And he looked fabulous in his animal print cape!
It is so short now, just like a little boy! I love it.
On our way to his birthday dinner, J and I were stuck in traffic, and he was just so happy. I had to whip out the camera and take a photo. (I was stopped in traffic, I promise (note the off-centerness)!
Later that evening, after dinner, there was the cake of course! Made by grandma (my mom) just as I ordered it. Little cake (pumpkin, yum!) with lots of bright blue frosting! (I am going for blue poop!) 🙂
J figured out pretty quickly that bright blue frosting and pumpkin cake was not a bad thing. 🙂 He is not much for getting his hands dirty, so I ended up feeding most of it with his little fork. But he got messy anyway, so I was happy.
After cake (and extensive blue goo cleanup), J decided that he wanted to play with his new birthday toy, his train, in just a diaper and his shoes and socks. Who am I to tell him no?
So, there you have it. His birthday festivities. Successful I would say. But I do think all that sugar got to him. Usually he goes right to sleep when I put him in his crib, but tonight he laid in there talking for a good 30 minutes before he had his sugar crash. 🙂
