Last Saturday, we invited all of Theo's friends over for a delightful celebration. It wasn't fancy, but it had all the elements for success: friends, toys, and cup cakes!
I was a bit nervous that he would get overwhelmed, or too tired after three hours of playing, but he had a ball! He loved sharing all his toys, and hamming it up for the parents. He also showed off his new walking skills. (when the night was over, he went to bed an hour and a half early.)
His birthday was pretty much the first time he'd gotten a sugary treat all to himself, and he learned quickly what delicious things look like. When I was baking the cup cakes, he was standing at the oven, crying that we couldn't eat them all right then! But during the party, he had at least one bite of everyone's cup cakes. I'll bet he had 10 accumulated cup cakes. Joking... but only a little.
