My darling nephew Cameron was 1 last Thursday and we had a little family party in his local park to celebrate the momentous occasion last Saturday.
Poor bubba was a wee cranky boy when we all got there - he'd picked up an ear infection, poor darlin, and was feeling very miserable. And is very clingy to mummy at the moment too.
After 45mins or so, Aunty Michey decided to work her "baby whisperer" magic and took him for a walk in the pram. Up and down and around and around we went and still no sleeping bubba - though he was content to lie there and watch the world go by. We had a little friend along with us as well and she talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked!! By the time we got back to the family 20 mins later, I think she was all talked out, the poor possum, and decided to go in and revive herself with a cold drink. I thought Cam and I'd just check out what was down the other end of the path in the hope that without 'Miss Cute Chatterbox' along he'd fall asleep. Sure enough, not 5mins later Boy Wonder was visiting ZZZZZ-land. One quick power nap later (35mins) and he was awake and back to his usual cheery self.
Such a transformation deserved a treat - his first piece of fairy bread. The look on his face was priceless. Bread he knows, but what were these sweet little round things that were in my mouth?? He didn't quite know how to eat them and it was cute, cute, cute!! Can you tell I'm in love with this little man??!! It was just sooooo nice to see his sweet little smile back on his face.
Then it was time for lunch and afterwards, presents followed by blue robot cake.....I took some photos of these on my "big" camera and haven't downloaded them yet...just believe me when I say the cake was cute but very blue and very sweet and very much won't be had ever again!! lol
Of course, Aunty Michey had to make her wee bubba a cute card & who better than funky little Edward to use. Sorry the pic isn't any better.....I took it at 2am on my iPhone after I'd finished making it and then forgot to get a better photo when we were at the party on Saturday. :( My poor brain needs more than 4hrs sleep to function properly at the moment. (Might ask my sis to bring it to the next family gathering so I can get a better shot.)
Anyways, there you have it. Thanks for taking a peak.
See y'all again next time.
