When Fabgrandpa and I arrived, we were just a little bit early. Emily was still preparing the food, Thomas, my son in law, was gone to the store for last minute items, and the other grandmother was in Parker’s room getting him dressed. I found a seat at the bar and helped myself to some of that fruit. Emily had a dip for the fruit that was made with cream cheese and marshmallow fluff that was soooooo goood.
I don’t know what that look was about. Parker was in his walker, and boy can he run that thing!
The guests started arriving, and I don’t think I have seen that many cute little boys in one place in a long long time. It made my heart feel so good that my daughter has so many friends who care about her.
Parker was having none of that hat! He did NOT want it on his head. Not even for the two seconds it would take to take a picture for his Mom. Not happening!
See that tiny little boy at the end of the table? He sat there all by himself for the longest time. He was so cute! The only time he made any fuss at all was when his Mom picked Parker up. THEN he was ready for Mom to hold him. All the girls are teachers at the same school where Emily teaches. I was just so amazed to see such young looking women and know that they are high school teachers.
Do not get between this boy and his food. He eats just about anything. I was trying to get him to look at me, but no way, Granny! I just want to eat my gold fish!
I was worn out early, so we were getting ready to leave. I missed the smash cake, but Emily got some photos of it. She said he loved it and really tore into it.
Chocolate covered boy–Emily said he went straight to the kitchen sink for a bath.
He’s not walking yet, but practices a lot holding on to the coffee table. He is faster than the speed of light! That boy was a blur whenever his feet were on the floor.
I can’t hold him for very long, and I have to be sitting down to do it. I got one last little cuddle in before I had to go home. It was a fun party with lots of food and good company, but I had to go home early. I still get worn out easily. I hope that by Parker’s second birthday, I will be able to stay until the end of the party. Happy Birthday, Parker!
