Graham's birthday fell on a Tuesday this year and you know what's special about Tuesdays? Nothing. However, we made a non-special day super great. Unfortunately, David couldn't take off work, but he did get home a little early. The boys and I just hung out during the day. I tried to be more fun and "present" as they say. I didn't clean, cook, or spend time on the computer (much). Sometimes, the second child (and all future children) get the short end of the stick. We simply have less time and energy for them than we had for our first when it was only one. I do my best to give Graham the same quality of care (sounds like i'm running an assisted living like David) as I did Parker with the understanding that with two, some things have to give. I let Parker go to Nana's in the afternoon so that David and I could spend a little personal time with baby G. Here are a few pictures from his actual birthday. Love you, Bug. You make your crazy momma proud.
Opening his first present.
Trying it out.
Birthday Lunch with mommy and bro. Menu? Wheat shells with marinara and steamed green beans. Yum!
Anything marinara requires a BIG clean-up. His hair is fab after getting all the noodle chunks out.
Papa and Baby G. before birthday dinner.
And momma too.
Loving some rice.
Walking with Daddy to bed. These pajamas are the cutest things ever. They are true vintage Carters. Nana gave them to us after she found them at Nina's (Graham's late great-grandma) and believes that they were David's when he was a year. Look how high they come on his waist. I guess that was the style. I adore the little bicycle print.
All ready for bed. Being one is exhausting.
