So even though Ed is in crazy – get the airplane done – airplane mode, we couldn’t miss an opportunity to give EJ a little airplane themed party for his first birthday on January 1st. (Yes, we may have watched the ball drop while feverishly hanging airplane balloons… you only live once…)
Some fun highlights included the balloon clouds and airplanes hanging in the kitchen…
“Before you leave will you help us in a very special way? Please leave a note for EJ to read on his 18th birthday!”
I weigh 20 pounds
I am 31 inches tall
I have 2 teeth
Favorite songs: Anything on XM The Bridge, The Rainbow Connection
Favorite toys: Anything that rattles, iphone, remote, pots and pans
I Love: playing with the cat, meeting new people, Cheerios, bath time
I Can: clap, wave, climb up and down stairs, say Dada, Mama, Kitty (sort of)
This may have taken place morning of because our scale ran out of batteries… I take no responsibility for this man and his fish scale ideas.
Airplane cake and cupcakes.
So with all this pre-fun going on EJ, of course couldn’t nap. You’ll see the ramifications in a moment…
But for now, just know the party started off with a super happy excited ONE year old!
So the Paper Airplane contest ensued and Mr. Birthday boy napped, and woke up happy as a clam for an afternoon of family fun and first time sledding.
So all in all a wonderful first birthday for Monster!
Happy Flying Friends!
Love & Hugs,
Ed, Colleen & EJ
