we celebrated conrad’s 1st birthday on monday and i think he had a great time! i can’t even count how many times throughout the day we sang him happy birthday. he grinned every time. and while he played with his cake more than ate it, i think he appreciated it. ;) in the very least, eleanor and samson definitely appreciated helping him eat it with their hands! lol. who needs a fork on a birthday?!
we had a little party planned for him last weekend but we ended up canceling it a few days before because there is an unusual amount of sickness floating around the past few weeks so i think it was for the best for now. i still feel guilty about it though. winter birthdays are a bit of a bummer in that sense! we’re going to have to celebrate hard for conrad once everyone is healthy again! in the meantime, we had a great time together with just our family.
we certainly do love this little boy more than i can express! we feel so so lucky to have him here. he’s the best. can’t wait to watch him discover and grow this next year!
