Happy 1st Birthday Joshua

My baby boy is 1 year old!  Grandma and Grandpa N came down to help celebrate.  They bought lots of toys and Grandma made his cake- a great tradition that I don’t mind at all!  She did an M&M cake with cupcakes too!  This family loves M&Ms.

So the Queen of Harts gave us left over birthday cake from her Giggle Girl’s birthday and we gave it to Josh to get used to real finger food.  Yeah, he picked that skill up in no time.  Come his real birthday that kid could down a cupcake faster than anyone!  I think he ate 4 cupcakes that day.  And don’t try and take any cake away from this little Tyke, because he would scream and let you know that taking cake away from a birthday boy was not acceptable!

Josh got a new swing, some sippy cups, clothes, blocks, his own teddy bear, and lots of loves from the family.  Oh yeah, and Uncle B. brought over his gf/ unofficial fiance (since she doesn’t have a ring) for the whole family to meet.  Welcome to the family Heather!  Okay, back to the Birthday boy.  At one he:
