My Big Party!

I had my first birthday last week.  On the 18th, I officially turned 1 year old!  Mom and Dad hosted a nice party just for me.  The gang at even put me on the homepage!  Check me out:


I’m still getting used to the whole birthday thing, but I think I like it.  People give you a party along with food and presents.  I can get used to this.  Dad had one recently when we went back to Maryland for his cousin’s wedding.  They got him a fancy cake with the Rockies logo on it. 


Mom got me this big comfy chair, kind of like the one Dad always sits in.  Only mine has Elmo on it and I don’t need any help getting into it. 

I got some other presents too, but they were all wrapped up.  I think they wrapped them up so I’d have something to put in my mouth later.  Wrapping paper is yummy and sops up drool surprisingly well.  I tried to get Elmo to help, but he just sat there and watched.


I opened presents, played with my new toys and ate pizza, cheese and fruit.  It was the perfect party.  Mom even got me a special cake.  It was a banana cream cheesecake.


It was really yummy.  I ate almost the whole piece.  The part I didn’t eat, I just smeared on my shirt for a late-night snack. 


It was a great party.  It even snowed on my special day. 

I’m getting ready for Christmas.  I’ve got my shopping done and most of my presents wrapped.  Dad was supposed to give Santa my wish list.  I hope he didn’t forget.  I was crying so hard when I saw Santa a few weeks ago that I forgot to give it to him.

    It looks like you had a wonderful birthday. And don’t worry – Santa understands that sometimes little boys and girls might get cranky when they see him. (The lines can be very long!) I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and I’m sure Santa will visit you. If you don’t already know about it – check out You can track Santa as he travels around the world!

    Thanks Julia! I’m going to visit Santa again today, just to make sure Dad gave him my list. This is only my second Christmas, so I want to make sure I get it right. I’m looking forward to watching Santa’s progress on that website.
