Back on the birthday boy’s day

Parker two weeks ago at his birthday party, teaching his new alligator about a long-tail cast-on; clearly, the kid is a natural-born knitter.

We were told he adored pull toys now but  he’d still rather crawl because he can go so fast the way he knows he’s good at going. This one’s made from rubberwood trees that are no longer producing; it puts their trunks to good use. (Wait, shouldn’t there be an elephant model, too, then?)

And of course he showed everybody just how cheerfully fast he could demolish a birthday cupcake.

Life is sweet.

It looks like the little man had a good celebration. I can’t believe he’s one already! God bless him!

My favorite picture is of the twins at their first birthday party. There they are, in the high chairs, with a foot propped up (one left, one right), feeding the foot a bit of cake, taking a bite of cake, feeding the foot, feeding the mouth. In unison. There was some early confusion regarding this eating thing!

Birthday? Already?

Whoa! Time certainly flies. But there is a kid who knows how to party!

What a cutie. They grow up too fast. At least in this day and age, there are more photos, more often!!

oh lovely, lovely pictures — so fun watching these little guys run headlong into life — and I see that Parker knows as well as Mr Cute does what to do at a birthday party — Let them eat cake!!

Oh, marvelous! Parker pics! No, Parker, one does not bathe in cupcake. Love the grin on his face in the last one.

Happy birthday, Parker! What great pictures! My favorite picture of my son’s first birthday party is of him, covered in chocolate cupcake and icing, with a huge wide grin on his face. Much like Parker’s grin!

May his next trip around the sun be joyous! (And I wouldn’t put away those bibs any time soon.)
