|Trying out gingerbread.|
Hubby came home from his business trip 10 days earlier than expected!!!! We are so excited and have spent the last few days reveling in his presence. We have spent our time relaxing, visiting a local museum, and just loving that Daddy is back home.
While Hubby was away he missed Mr. Bananas' 1st birthday. We did our best to celebrate this wonderful milestone despite missing an important member of our family.
|Playing with the "Little People" Garage set.|
It was a simple night with brinner (breakfast for dinner). I made gingerbread, eggs, sausage, and bacon. We had small cupcakes for dessert. So tired was our little man that he didn't even open his small gift of Thomas' coaches Annie and Clarabel (from the Thomas the Tank Engine Series) until the next day. We sang and celebrated the first year for our sweet baby.
|Happy, happy 1st birthday, Mr. Bananas!|
He has a mischievous twinkle in his eyes and he squinches up his nose and eyes when I say, "no" as he turns on the DVD player. I love kissing his neck right under his left cheek. He loves to curl up in the crook of our necks when he's sleepy. I love the way his baby butt wiggles when he crawls quickly to catch up with his siblings. He does not like being left behind and will often crawl or fuss to reach them. He's climbing the stairs and just the other day I found him at the top of the stairs in a downward dog position with his feet on the top step and his arms a step or two below him. Not the ideal position for learning how to get down the stairs. We're now teaching him to slide down on his belly, feet first. He loves buttons and loves the remote control, the dvd player, and anything that has a button he can push. He loves sweets and would rather eat a cupcake or a piece of gingerbread. His favorite pastime is trying to catch our cats' tails.
His sister loves being with him. Though, as time rolls on, I think that Mr. B. will wish he wasn't his sister's guinea pig for dress ups. Some of the phrases I have heard recently when she's playing with him are:
Bug: Try this on. You look gorgeous!
Bug: Let's play dress up!
While he laughs and claps and is a good sport, I think things will change as he becomes older ;)
I love everything about this little man. Well almost everything. I could do without the high piercing shriek he has developed when he wants attention. But overall I love this little man! I am in awe!
Happy 1st Birthday Mr. Bananas. You make our world a better place. We love you!
