The Birthday Weekend

Friday, September 14, 2007 (the actual birthday)
Iain had a pretty rough day - poor naps, fussy, etc. Kate came over in the afternoon to watch him so I could get dinner ready. Nan and Iain's three aunts (Kelsey Jenna, and Haylee) joined us for dinner. Nona (my mom) was sick and couldn't make it. The birthday dinner? Spaghetti, of course!

After dinner, Iain opened some presents from the family.

On Saturday, we had family and Iain's buddies over for a backyard party. The weather cooperated and everyone seemed to have a good time. I made an itsy-bisty spider cake, and everyone sang that song to him (with motions of course) before singing happy birthday.

We had toys and baby pools set up, as well as a swing and a slide.

Cutest one-year-old around!

Uncle Phil and Kelly came to visit, and brought Sanford along. Iain had a great time playing with Kelly, being read to by Uncle Phil, and poking at Sanford. The funniest moment came when Phil told Sanford to sit and Iain quickly obeyed.

Whew! It was quite a busy weekend. And what is it about his head these days that he thinks is so funny?

Too Cute

Today's pictures are, in my opinion, so cute that they need little description. Nice because I'm holding a nursing Iain and so typing with one hand....

Papa and Iain "surfing" around the living room:
On the way home from Grammy and Papa's, playing with Ling-Ling, a stuffed panda they brought back from China. It's neck-in-neck with Shamu and The Blue Guy for favorite stuffed animal:
The big boy and his new favorite toy: a walker from Nan:
And the new favorite food: spaghetti! In this first picture, Iain is saying "please" in sign language because he wanted more. He literally giggles when he sees that it's spaghetti for dinner or when he gets another helping, or when he squishes it in his hand before eating it. Makes for a very silly meal! The second picture shows the other place he likes to put spaghetti:
