Totally off course here, but I have to share these.
Little Elliott Jr. just turned one. Hard to believe that a year has already gone by, and that he’s about to become a big brother already.
We just celebrated his first birthday. The theme was Jake and the Neverland Pirates – a show he is mesmerized by and truly believes he is a character in.
He had his own little “smash” cake – made for the sole purpose of him smashing his little hands and face into. A mess to say the least, but just too damn cute.
While 20 adults and countless children sang to him, he looked at all of us as if we’d lost our minds. He couldn’t begin to comprehend what the excitement was about. If looks could kill.
With grandpa Sal at his side egging him on, he starts to realize this gig is not all that bad.
Shortly before that shot was taken he had swatted grandpa right in the nose because he got so excited.You can see some of the blue on Sal’s nose. Hilarious to say the least. Sal hates being dirty even more than the baby does, but little EJ has a free reign.
Once he got a few good mouthfuls of sweet icing and cake there was no stopping him and all bets were off.
Fat and happy, he was very pleased with himself indeed!
A complete and utter mess, but a lot of laughs. And believe it or not he wasn’t bouncing off the walls with all the sugar. He slept through the night with dreams of red, white, and blue sugar globs dancing all around him.
Happy 1st Birthday EJ! We love you sooo much!
