the big first birthday!

Don’t mind how long after his actual birthday it took me to put this post together… I was mourning the loss of the first party I planned.  Seriously, it was going to be really cute.  Red balloon bunting, different patterned fabric on the tables, cute centerpieces (buckets of pool toys that were actually the favors) and of course displaying all of his weekly photos (strung up on twine).  Mommy spend too much time on pinterest… but that party didn’t happen.  (Lifeguards, what’s a little lot of thunder and ok, lightning too, plus a downpour of rain?  Really, you need to close the pool?  Ohok.  I guess its necessary.  Although at the time, I didn’t think so.)  We moved the party back to our house, which worked out ok in the end.  It was easier to serve the food and Charlie was in his element, but it wasn’t nearly as cute!  And had I known 30+ people were going to be at our house, I might have cleaned up a little bit.  Ha, just kidding.

He wanted to help Grammy pick out a drink.

Really, the cooler was very entertaining.

The answer to, “Charlie, how old are you?”

Birthday boy wasn’t a fan of the hat at first.

He got used to it. I don’t have pictures of us singing to him, but he broke out in a huge grin. He loves when people sing!

The cake Nana made was so cool! It looked like one of his favorite toys- the drum. Even had drumsticks made of Twizzlers and marshmallows, she is so creative. I don’t know what Charlie thought of the whole thing, but Brandon (and everyone else) loved it.

I hope he wasn’t pulling hair here. But it sort of looks that way.
