This past Thursday was Baby G’s 1st birthday! I absolutely cannot believe that he’s already 1. It seems like just yesterday his little naked booty was getting his first sponge bath in the hospital!
He hasn’t been feeling well for the past week or so, so he wasn’t 100% for his birthday on Thursday and his birthday party yesterday unfortunately, in case you’re wondering why he looks semi-miserable in some of his pictures. Poor little nugget just wanted to be held and cuddle.
I went to his house after work on Thursday so I could see him on his actual birthday. Found his grandpa attempting to put together his new little truck… without much luck. Move aside Grandpa, let the lady put together the truck! haha
He’s still too little for the truck, but hopefully in a few months he’ll have a little growth spurt. He can’t see over the eyes in the front, so we were trying to put a little pillow under his bum. He wasn’t having it!
Saturday afternoon was his birthday party with a mustache theme:
His little dessert table spread!
We tried to take some family pictures so my cousin would have some to print out, but he was NOT having that. Since he wasn’t feeling well, he just wanted to be held, and didn’t want to stand next to his treats.
Attempt 1: Nothing but tears.
Attempt 2: But then he sees something in the distance that he wants (it was a balloon)
Attempt 3: Baby trying to escape the table, trying to get the mustache balloon!
His party started out only being immediate family, maybe around 10 people invited, especially since he wasn’t 100%. But in our family, that would never fly, and when friends are considered family, that made it about a 30ish person party.
He wanted to rip the mustaches off our faces, so I had to take the picture really fast since he was getting mad. His lasted about 10 seconds on his face, then he turned to me to try to rip mine off. It look him a few extra seconds, but he got it, and then kept trying to put it back on my face. It ended up being a dangly mustache from the corner of my mouth… almost, little guy, almost.
He was eyeballing this as soon as it came in the door. We tried to put it with his other gifts, but he wanted to get right on it – even in the box!
We ate lunch and some of the adults were having wine. He kept reaching for the wine glasses, wanting some, too, so we got a glass for him and poured his apple juice in it. He was uber satisfied and felt super sophisticated!
He got SUPER messy while eating his lunch so we stripped him down when it got to cake time. My cousin ordered him a smash cake since it’s his first birthday, but with him not feeling 100% he didn’t want to dig into his cake (something he would have done in a millisecond when he’s himself!)
He was more interested in banging his candle and toy together.
Parties at their house are always loud and crazy and full of people and kids running around wrestling, but they are always so much fun! And always filled with good times and lots and lots of food.
… and treats!
Thanks for coming to his birthday party!
