We went to my cousin's daughter's first birthday celebration this afternoon. She is adorable and hosted quite a party. Waverly loves a good birthday party, so she had a blast with the party hats, balloons, birthday cake, and singing "Happy Birthday" to Ava. Oliver slept through most of it, but was able to come in for cake - his favorite part. He was so happy and personable, running around the room getting people to hug each other (Yes. He actually grabs 2 people and forces them to hug. He is my little peace maker.) Here are a few photos from our afternoon.
Like any event with our kids something always happens to remind you that life is a little different with Sanfilippo. Both kids had horrendous blowouts. Fortunately, I am always prepared with extras for Waverly. However, Oliver hardly ever needs a change of clothes and I neglected to bring any along. There were no kids around his size, so my cousin's husband gave Oliver one of his thermal tees. He was quite a sight in a way-too-big tee, with sleeves rolled up and looking like a tent dress and his sneakers. He could care less and went running around the party as if nothing happened. That's my boy!
