Happy Birthday Thomas!
Paul & Jess with their birthday boy
The boys and I celebrated Thomas' first birthday party today! We had a blast! It was the first time I've been out with them alone since moving them into "big boy" seats. Thankfully, Paul was able to help me bring one of them inside. It's not easy having two babies who can't walk yet.

The boys had so much fun playing with the other babies who were invited and with all the toys that were at their disposal, like the stereo, the remote control, and the fridge. And did they ever make themselves at home once they caught sight of Thomas' fridge garage. They didn't fight. Nope. Not at all. Not my sweet innocent boys! ;) All in all, they were well behaved and handled the crowd of people who wanted to say hi (and touch their hair) with grace! They even acquired a couple girlfriends by the end of the day. Jackson stole Elina's toy and shoved it in his mouth. Jameson pulled Annie's hair. If that ain't love, I don't know what is! Wes joined us for the last hour of the party, just in time for the birthday cake! Unfortunately, he missed us singing "Happy Birthday" to Thomas ... three times (don't ask). Then we headed home to feed the boys and put them down for their nap. They slept for 2 hours, so the party must have pooped them out! Why can't they nap like that every day!
