Last year, for his 1st birthday, Sam wasn't a fan of the cake and wouldn't even touch it. Not so this year...
Not only did he eat the cake, he fed himself! Has it really only been a year?
While birthday party fun was being had, John took a nap. I guess we know who the resident party animal is (and is not).
Here's the birthday boy in all his 2 year old glory. We had an Olympics-themed party (inasmuch as the cake was olympic themed and I gave the favors out in chinese takeout boxes decorated with olympic mascot charms). My mom was just in Beijing and brought back an authentic Olympic mascot outfit for Sam--which he wore to the party too.
I am totally digging The Little Gym party concept and will probably have another one there for John's first birthday unless I come up with something better between now and then. I'm new (obviously) to the toddler birthday circuit, but they've got a good thing going on there. You plunk down your money and they provide food, drink, paper products, snacks, use of the gym, and a cake, then you have the party, and they clean up afterwards. What could be better? Seriously?
