Happy Birthday Peter!

Well, his birthday isn't actually for a few more days but we had Peter's first birthday party yesterday and it was a blast. The weather cooperated fabulously and of my family only Jesse was missing. Peter had a grand time as long as no one but mom or dad picked him up and he was perfectly happy to play with everyone. Though, his favorite people were those drinking pop. He LOVES pulling the tabs off the top of pop cans.

By the time we got around to the cupcakes he was pretty tired and really not that impressed overall.  I don't remember how many times Jason offered it to him before he actually took a bite, the wrapper was far more interesting and less messy.  He's a funny little boy, he really doesn't like to get his hands dirty.  Whenever he grabs something sticky he tries to shake it off.  Of course he doesn't like to have his hands washed either but I think that's more normal.

It just occurred to me, I don't think I got any pictures of the pretty rainbow cupcakes I made!  Poo on that.  I wasn't that impressed with how they tasted (the vanilla with chocolate were much better) but they were so pretty.  Oh well, I'll just have to make them again but tastier this time.  I've got so many more pictures but I'm tired, it's been a busy weekend.  I'll post more later.

I made homemade chocolate pudding-pops this week just cause.  As you can see in the pictures above, Peter gave his stamp of approval.  His reaction to the cold was pretty funny at first but it didn't take him long to realize that despite the cold, this was something yummy!

He's getting close to walking too.  He's taken a few steps unsupported but he hasn't realized it yet.  Both times he had something in his hands that must have just distracted him enough to not think to look for something to hold onto.  I wonder if he'll be walking in time for his birthday but I also won't be surprised if he waits a few more months.  He'll get there in his own time and crawling sure isn't slowing him down.  He LOVES playing "can't catch me!"  His happy baby squeals and giggles are just the most wonderful sound I've ever heard.

Peter sat at the table with us for the first time tonight! He was so cute sitting there like a big boy chowing down on his dinner. Some bits were eaten off a fork we loaded for him but much more was simply picked up and eaten out of hand (or out of lap). I was actually pretty surprised, he still usually just tips plates and bowls right over but he just sat right down and joined in like he knew exactly what to do.
