Baby J's Big Day

What a great day we had for Baby J's birthday party! He looked so cute in his hat and bib...that were his brother's almost two years ago.

You know, this little guy? Yep, he will be turning three very shortly, but in the meantime he enjoyed his brother's birthday. He was the official present opener.

Speaking of presents, here is the birthday boy perched atop a present. He enjoyed crawling on and off of it and eating the ribbon that came on it.

Yummy, yummy ribbons.

Baby Einstein was the theme of the party. When Snug was a baby I bought the hat and bib with plates, cups, napkins, etc. I had the bib and hat preserved (ok, put in a box and clean) and some napkins left over. I bought some cake plates, cups, and another pack of napkins and wahla! the theme was used again. I made his cake and had fun decorating it.

Baby J's cake was the caterpillar's head. When Snug had this theme, his cake was 5 circles lined up like the caterpillar you saw on the cake above. It was really hard to ice, so I switched it up this time. Baby J liked the Twizzler antennas.

Trying to decide...

...if he likes it...

...well...

...no, he doesn't. Not that much.

But the water table gift? Oh yeah! That was a hit!

And then, when it was all over, falling asleep clutching ribbons in Pop Pop's lap topped it all off.
Happy Birthday Baby J!
We are in Michigan at my parent's house tonight. I've been told there is possible internet access at camp this year, but I"m not going to get your my hopes up. Besides, I'll be super busy hiking, swimming, canoeing, shooting, riding, playing, talking, and cuddling my children the first week and too busy teaching, scolding, learning, leading, and lecturing the second and third weeks. Whew! I am getting tired just thinking about the weeks to come!

Happy Birthday Baby J! How can he possibly be a year old already??? It looks like he had a blast (well maybe not in that last cake photo, but in all the others).

Baby J looks adorable as always!!

I think you can use this to get a rebate on one pack so it would be free.
