We threw JW a big 'ol FIRST birthday bash last weekend, complete with a taco man and pinata, the whole works because, well, why not! It's his FIRST birthday! (It's more for us anyways, right?) Next year's birthday is going to be waaaay smaller. This party was great but really all he needs are some friends running around having fun and maybe some cake...
JW was such a trooper... he was so tired from the very minute the party started. He had missed his afternoon nap and it was so SO hot he just looked haggered (notice the crazy blank stare below while looking at his birthday cake). But he made it to the end, and through a few presents.
I made JW a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I wasn't sure if he would be into it. He is really into tossing his food on the ground right now, and I was afaird that was the fate of his cake... But he did the appropriate thing and dug right in.
And the cupcakes for the party were made by my friend Jacqui from Baby Boy Bakery. THREE words: BUTTER CREAM FROSTING!
