How has it been over a year since Robert entered our lives? This year sure did fly by fast! We decided not to do a big first birthday party and had a small family get together. Tom and I made a $250 payment to Robert’s 529 college savings account instead of buying him lots of presents. Our little condo is over loaded with baby toys already!
Our local family members met us at a beach side restaurant for lunch and blueberry muffins. Unfortunately a big rain storm made us cut the celebration short (and possibly resulted in the death of my computer).
Robert had a blast with his blueberry muffins that his Mayme (Tom’s mom) made for him! I let Robert eat sugary sweets in moderation, but I wasn’t too keen on giving him his own smash cake. These muffins were a good compromise.
It was a short and sweet celebration that lasted the perfect amount of time between Robert’s two naps. Here he is cautiously eyeing another muffin the next day.
He did NOT like wearing his birthday crown at all! Good thing I made it and didn’t spend a lot of money on it.
The celebration couldn’t have gone better! I was a little bummed by the rain, but it ended up working out since we were able to go home and put the tired little birthday boy down for his afternoon nap.
