Great Friday


Mom had the day off on Friday but not because it was her regular day off but because JP Morgan recognizes Good Friday as a company holiday. Sweet! It's a good thing Mom had the day off too because she had a lot of prepping to do for MY FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY! This meant she had to find something for me to do while she party planned. Fortunately I had just received an influx of gifts to keep my busy!


One certain upside to a birthday party was that I got to wear a party dress! One discovered downside is that party dresses aren't really made for crawling (there's some motivation to walk) and that can be pretty frustrating. About the only thing worse would be taking my sweet party dress and stuffing into my diaper to keep it out of the way. But who would do that....?


Holy cow, look at all of my bounty! Mom helped me open my presents a little but when I saw something awesome like a hangar or a box, it was all me! Sweet!



Uncle Tim and Great Uncle John broke out the Disney 4-in-1 Pop n' Play Activity Ride-On that UT and Aunt Kelly got me. It is AWESOME! M&D keep threatening to take it over to UT's house for when he babysits. NO WAY M&D! So what if it doesn't have an off switch or is extremely loud without a volume adjustment, I'd miss it too much to store at UT's.

Looking back at the picture below, I don't remember why I was so upset but I assume GUJ was pinching me or something! From what I hear, GUJ hasn't lost his touch (just some hair!)


One huge surprise was that M&D let me eat some (cup)cake. I really wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with it so I mostly just played with it. Unfortunately I forgot to take GAS&GUD's advice about spreading frosting in my hair. DOH! Eventually Mom decided to feed it to me on a spoon but not before I made a decent mess (highlighted below.)


I had SO MUCH FUN at my party but in the end I didn't mind it so much when everyone left because I got to spend some QT with M&D before bed.


I want to thank everyone so much for helping me celebrate my first birthday. I had a ton of fun and got enough bounty to keep me busy for a year. Coincidence?

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
