On my birthday, mom put a hat on my head. I thought people were supposed to be nice to you on your birthday, but she was being so mean! She did let me eat a cupcake at Hannah’s house to make up for it. She must have felt really bad about trying to make me wear a hat because she also threw a party for me and a whole bunch of people came and everyone looked at me and clapped! That is my favorite thing. I remember at Aunt Lauren’s wedding when that happened I liked it a lot. But now I know how to clap too, so it’s even more fun. Do they have jobs where you get clapped at? That’s what I want to be when I grow up.
At my party, there were balloons and I had so much fun playing with them. There were also grandmas and I had so much playing with them. There was one grandpa, he’s always fun, but then I was a little confused about the rest of the people. I think they were all named aunt or uncle. Great Aunts, Great Great Aunts, Sort of Aunts and Almost Uncles. I don’t know what that means, but if I just learn to say Auntie, I should be able to get what I need.
Thank you everyone for all the very nice presents. Some of my favorite things were some pans that Hannah, Ryan, Max and Oliver gave me and a jack-in-the-box monkey guy who hides and then pops out at you. Maw Maw T, I liked the birthday outfit you made for me sooo much. Especially the ribbon sleeves. So much that I decided to take the ribbons off so I could play with them better. That’s why I am not wearing my pretty outfit you made in the pictures.
Sort-of-Aunt Sarah made me a very pretty cake, it even matched the decorations. She showed it to me and said I could smash it, but I did not want to mess up all her hard work, so I just handed mom the berries off the top then waited for her to cut me a piece. I also had a nice bib Grandma Kim made me so I had to be careful to just take small bites.
After the party, Grandma Susan stayed to play with me for a long time. I liked that a lot. I didn’t have to share my toys with Max for a whole week.
Thanks everybody for coming and clapping at me. If you want to come do it again some time you can.
