I’m such a big boy now that mama said I could write a blog post to tell you about my birthday!
I woke up to everyone giving me kisses and saying ‘Happy Birthday You’re One!’. But I already knew this because they had been telling me for weeks already! Mama keeps trying to get me to hold up one finger. Yeah right.
My morning started out great because I had two emails! One from my Gamma wishing me a Happy Birthday and the other from mama’s friend Julie from A Year with Mom and Dad sent me a music card! Oh I was ddaanncciinn’…
(sorry mama is so bad with the video camera)
That night we went to Chick-fli-a because it’s Tuesday Kids Night which means free meals for my brothers and they got to make a Valentine Card which they gave to me. I love my brothers. They had balloons all set up at my table waiting for me because they knew I was coming. They love me.
My friend Ruby came (she’s a cutey) with her mama and I blew out (well mama blew) outÂ my candle on my cow cake. Oh, let me tell you about my cow cake! It was made with Banana Applesauce Muffins and iced with cream cheese frosting. It was sooo yummy that I wanted to give you the recipe! But mama can’t take credit for the muffins. BeachBum Allison J sent it to her. Thank you Allison it was perfect!
Wholewheat pastry flour 1 1/2C
Baking soda 1 tsp
Baking power 1tsp
Brown sugar 1/4C
3 bananas or 15 oz
Cinnamon 1 tsp
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Then fold together. Bake 350. Small muffins 10-15 minutes. Larger muffins 20-25 minutes.
I got three great homemade toys. The cutest purple dinosaur from my friend Ruby. A sensory clutch ball (giveaway in April!) that mama bought from Bright Life Toys. Balls are my favorite! And my new favorite outfit from T-Rex Mom!
Now that I’m one…
I’m really close to walking. Yesterday I was brave and ventured out on my own! I only got about six steps in before I fell on my butt. I like crawling much better.
I’ve gotten pickier on how I eat. I used to eat anything mama gave me and now I’m starting to make faces and keep my mouth shut. Well I don’t like it! But I do have 12 teeth to help me chew.
I’m trying so hard to talk but the words aren’t coming out right. They just come out like Da! I do love my Da though 🙂 I think I’m starting to say B words like ball and bye but I’m not very consistent.
Well enough about me! I hope mama doesn’t make me wait until I’m two to write again!
What fun things did you get to do on your first birthday?
