That said, things seem to be going at warp speed and I don't even know how to recap the past week and half in any kind of concise form. I am going to do a formal round up of all the first birthday party festivities rather than trying to recap them as we go (we started celebrating early this past Friday)...so stay tuned for that!
|Ok, a preview of cake smashing. He was psyched until his hands were covered in green frosting. Then "all done, all done"!|
Speaking of family, we are now a family of 3. Only three humans. No fur babies to snuggle with any more. Don't worry, Arnold Pomeranian is alive and well, so no need for a eulogy :-). But, we did have to make a very hard decision for him to go and live with his original "dad". Ever since Lola passed AP started to seem more and more miserable. I think Lola was his protector and made him feel safe in the midst of Noah the hair-puller. But lately the poor little guy was just fleeing from Noah and seemed generally unhappy. So, we decided to make the unselfish decision and let him go live in a house free of 11 month olds where he can be a couch pomeranian in peace. Being a dog free household is beyond strange but I think it is the right decision right now for our little family.
|I think Snooch wanted to like Noah :-).|
|The smallest Giants fan.|
|We went to game 7. While the outcome was unfortunate, we had a BLAST.|
|Yes, my loyalty was switched about half way through the game. Hey, I AM a Bay Area resident these days.|
|There was a lot of Panda love in Menlo Park this week. (please excuse the penguin...he was feeling left out)|
|Remember that foam finger above? Yeah, turns out the end that I bit off was lucky.|
|Bye bye baby seat!|
|I was seriously ready to head to the football field to cheer on the Colts!|
|Hottest nerd I know.|
|We opted for a costume that didn't hinge on head wear. There were so many adorable kid costumes but they all needed a hood or hat to complete the look. While a cowboy hat would be a nice topper (ha, pun not intended), this is what happens....|
|Not even on long enough to capture.|
|And a mustache. Not happening.|
|As you can see, it was a wild and crazy party! So fun to have new friends that are all enjoying our kiddos together.|
Ok, I ran out of pictures that aren't birthday related so I am going to wrap this up. Please save 1-2 hours for the birthday post coming in a couple weeks. It is going to be long!
