The party has happened!
Was it as Martha as I had hoped? No. Was I the perfect hostess? Not quite. (Nate was working my last nerve and sometimes I simply cannot compartmentalize.) Was Theo an angel the entire day? Nope. He got seriously grumps mid-party and, get this, took a nap! The nerve. Though, I too have taken a nap mid-party before. At least Theo had the wherewithal to doze in his porta-crib. (I fell asleep in the bathroom.) But just like the mama, Theo rallied to see the party to the end. Good boy.
Christine interpreted my vision perfectly. Look at its delicious beauty!
Upon seeing his guests clap post-candle-blowing, Theo joined right in the applause. So sweet.
The frosting face.
Theo had his first piece of cake—with a dollop of ice cream, of course. His reaction to the taste (confusion) and the yellow mess (disgust) was hil-arious.
The video. I’m so happy that we got some of these great moments on video. Nate and I have been sooo bad with the video cam.
Ok, “highlight” isn’t quite right, but I made it! And I hope to use it every year for the little man.
