Sorry I’m way behind on blogging. I had a huge book to edit (600 pages!), so I haven’t had much time for anything else. But here I am, three weeks after the party, finally getting pictures up. You’re all so patient with me.
His actual birthday wasn’t so great; we both were super grumpy all day because we hadn’t slept well, I made the horrible mistake of going to the store during naptime, and the family pictures we had scheduled started great, but ended early because of a freak summer rainstorm. Go figure. But hey, that’s the stuff memories are made of, right?
Frederick’s birthday party, on the other hand, was a success. It was the day after his birthday after we’d all gotten some good sleep. We had some family and friends over, and since several of them were celiac, we had an assortment of candies (a “candy bar,” get it?) instead of cake. Except for Fred, who got his very own smash cake. He was a little confused at first, but once we showed him it was food, he dove right in. It was a great time; everyone had a lot of fun. Especially Frederick!
