This weekend, Everett's Grandma and Grandpa came down to celebrate his birthday with us. We attempted to go to the Gypsy Picnic Food Festival, but it was just madness. Think really long lines for a $3 sample. After getting some lunch at Torchy's Tacos we came home for presents and cupcakes! He got some really fun toys and some cuddly winter clothes. We are going to purchase him a balance bike for his birthday, but he isn't walking yet, so that plan is put off just a bit. When it was cupcake time he tentatively played with it before smashing it frosting side first into his mouth. It was so funny because he just held it there for awhile smelling it and perhaps trying to figure out what to do next. Needless to say, he figured it out and devoured it within a few minutes. My mom has a great video I'll have to get from her.
It's been a fantastic year. Everett has brought so much to our lives, and parenting has helped us grow in many ways as well. We are so grateful for this happy, constantly laughing little dude.
