October 10 was T’s first birthday! We had been back in the country for about a week and tried to figure out how to celebrate at a time when none of us were sleeping all that well yet, we were freshly missing family and friends back home, and Mommy was coming down with a cold.
We started out with breakfast at home!
Then we went to a big baby store in town that has a little play area for kids. We were going to buy T’s presents and let the kids play a bit.
Then we headed to lunch at Shake Shack. (Mommy will look for any reason to go here!) But seriously, I figured since T had been eating hamburger meat so well lately, he would enjoy eating an extra hamburger patty from my burger and some fries. (No, we didn’t go to ChickFilA, that is just one of their place mats that I had in my diaper bag.) Turned out he wasn’t interested in the hamburger so mommy got to eat a double, and he just had fries.

After naps, we ordered KFC for dinner. Mommy didn’t want to cook today and T wanted chicken nuggets!
After dinner, we had him open presents and we also talked on the phone with Nena and Pappaw. Big sister helped with the wrapping paper!
He got a little barn with door that opens, a walking toy, and a toy garbage truck.
Now for the cake!
I think he is crying because he wants to hurry up and eat it. Or because he has no clothes on.
He did like the cake, but he didn’t devour mommy’s homemade cake as much as he did the bakery cake a few weeks prior.
T is a happy smiley sweet huggy little boy and we love him so! Happy 1 year T!
