This afternoon Jamie had his first ever birthday party! As we are leaving tomorrow, I wanted to keep things small, so we only invited two other little boys. Jamie was very excited about it all day and didn't want to wait until the afternoon. Other than his having a hard time sharing some of his toys, I think it went well. His favorite parts were definitely the cupcakes and playing with his balloon at the end. Looking forward to celebrating even more later this week!
|We had some extra batter so I let Jamie fill the mini cupcake pan all by himself.|
|the almost-birthday boy!|
|lots of playtime!|
|Jamie was so excited about the cupcakes that he had grabbed one off the table and started eating the frosting before I even realized it! What a stinker.|
|Right after I finally let him have a balloon to play with. That was one happy boy!|

After nearly 3 weeks alone with Jamie, I was overjoyed to have a week spent with family. My parents came to visit last Sunday night and stayed with us three days. Then on Thursday, we all headed down to Atlanta together to spend a few days with my brother and his family. The week flew by, and now, somehow, there are only TWO days left until we go to France! HOW is that possible?! So thankful that we got to have some help in speeding those last days along. We had a great week.
And now for the pictures...
|Jamie LOVED having his grandparents here!|
|We took them to the Sunsphere...|
|and to the library downtown...|
|had dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe...|
|and got gelato for dessert :)|
|LOTS of playtime|

|then it was time to head to Uncle Mark and Aunt Sarah's! Jamie passed some of the time by reading stories to Curious George.|
|Adriana was the patient, Elena was her mom, and Jamie was the doctor|
|Sweet baby Christine! She was all smiles the whole time. What a happy girl.|
