Here are the photos from Robert's birthday.

(Dial-up beware - there are 28 photos below)

First, a few days before... his shoes from Jeney

If he can get in it, he likes to sit in it

The day the Robert's rocking horse came (his birthday present from Busia - my mom)
What do I do with this thing?

Some of our party guests. This is Josh - playing the role of a duck with the party hat

And this is Hannah - proudly showing off her party hat that she put on all by herself!

Finally, the Birthday Boy himself! I tell you, my son is a genius (who doesn't think there kid is). But seriously, we put his cupcake on his tray the "right" way, and it kept slipping around. So he picked it up and flipped it over frosting side down to stick it in place. At first I thought it just fell over, so I righted it. But he looked at me, picked it back up and stuck it to his tray. He continued to eat it bottom up!

Daddy helped him get messy because he wasn't doing it fast enough (we literally have a 30 minute video of Robert eating his cupcake crumb by crumb... and lots of interesting conversation going on in the background).

Josh wanted to climb in the crib with the now-clean Robert (Hannah had already been in there but I didn't get pictures). Robert went right for his mouth

... and Josh got him back by blowing his hair straight up!

He was already tired after the big day, but I had wanted to get pictures of him on his rocking horse. However, he wasn't happy to be there at the time.

Really. Not. Happy.

The "taggie-like" blanket I made him (the fleece is about 12 inches square)

And this morning - us having fun with a balloon, static electricity, and Bob-Bob

The one where he is "really not happy" you can almost here him say "mom, get me off!" The pictures are just adorable. I am so happy for your family-what a wonderful year you have had. May God Bless you all as you grow another year. I can't wait to see all of the things Robert learns and does.

So I can't remember the correct "hear" a 7 mo. old will do that to you-that and the 50 preschoolers I teach.

So much fun, I wish I coulda been there. That birthday bib he was wearing looks like it should have come from...me. Happy Birthday to Me is my favorite phrase/song! Good thing you are starting Robert out small with only 2 days of birthday next year you can make it 3 and he will be all conditioned for the week-long celebrations in no time at all! Much love...!
