The little guy had lots of firsts this past weekend. Saturday was his FIRST BIRTHDAY! I can hardly believe it, time has gone by so fast, and I always figured he would be such a big boy at one, but he is still just my tiny man. We had a fun birthday party for him with a colorful ball theme and I think he had a lot of fun despite the fact that he has no idea that any of it was for him! I did my best to simply survive the day due to the fact that I got food poisoning from an Italian Sausage that I ate the night before at the D-backs game. Not good. Throwing up from 9:30 PM till 7:00 AM the next morning. Luckily, I have great friends that were so helpful and a hubby that really understood just how bad the night before had been- they all pulled the party off for me and by the end I was able to actually enjoy it a little bit. First birthday- I just can hardly believe it. Wow.

The Dads had more fun playing with the balls in the pool than the kids did! There were a few injuries once the balls started flying- nothing too bad.

He just wanted to eat all of the gumballs on top of the cupcakes...

What do you want me to do with that stick on fire?

Mmmmm... I get it now.

Thanks for the fun presents!

That night He had his first haircut! I am a bad mom and forgot to take pictures of the whole ordeal, but we just gave him a little buzz and to my utter dismay we took off his lone curl on the back of his head. It was for the best though because it was starting to look pretty trashy. He looks oh so handsome and he did a great job- minus the point when he turned on the water (He was sitting in the sink you see) and i didn't realize it was the hot water until he was screaming and trying to crawl out of the sink! Sad. Bad mom moment number 1029384.

Then on Monday morning we went to movie days togther! They play older movies at like 9:45 in the morning and you can bring your kid for like $2.00. My friend had an extra ticket and The Toonsie Boy decided to sleep in for the first time in his life so we gave it a shot. The movie was Over The Hedge and He did so great for the first little while. He was totally watching the movie and eating licorice and popcorn... loving life. Then there was one little distraction and it was all over folks. But he made it through about 45 minutes which I thought was pretty darn good for a first timer. He was having so much fun. (I was sad I had to miss the rest of the movie, it was pretty cute!)

So happy to be at the movies!

Thanks for bringing me, Mom! (Possibly my new favorite picture ever)

Mmmm.. chewy red stick- I like it.

Here's to all the firsts we get to have together. It just couldn't be more fun... and neither could he!

I remember my oldest's first birthday party. We invited tons of people, and when we sang to him he cried. What we parents will do for our kids. Our other three had a quiet first birthday party at home as we didn't want to traumatize them too. Krew looks like he had a nice and calm and enjoyable party....he is so cute. I need to come and see you guys...

Love, the moral compass

In response to your comment about Benji, I TOTALLY agree. So over him. I really think Allison should have won the whole thing. She's so versatile and such a great performer. I think people get wrapped up in the hype of a guy being a good dancer and a goofball. Anyway, Krista, I love your blog! What a cute idea for Krew's birthday party. You are so crafty and someday I will hire you to decorate my house... when I have a house. I will just tell you what colors and styles I like and let you go to town. :) Cool?
