18 months: Just 1 cupcake

It's Emmy's 18 month birthday today and we HAD to have a cupcake for a year and a half! It didn't take her long to remember how to do it!
Since the cupcake was a lion she had to "RRROOAR!"This is completely unrelated, but Emmy has been staying with Pops for the past week for his summer vacation and has started making his "Monkey face" all day! Silly monkey.

Patty and Birthday Cake!

It's hard to believe but the "little cousin" Jackson turned 1 last week! He definetly dug his cake! There was red icing everywhere!


He liked it so much that he even decided to lick it off his tray!Pre-red icing licking, the kiddos jumped into the pool for some fun in the sun. I do mean jumped. Abby didn't seem to mind doing belly flops into the kiddy pool. I guess it doesn't hurt as much as it looks like it does!I tried a slip-n-slide in college (don't ask) and I almost died in agony, I guess that used to be fun too.

In a miraculous feat, this hat stayed on for a good 45 minutes. It's a miracle!

The birthday boy swam in various stages of undress from full swimgear to a'la nude. But hey, it's his birthday, if he want to skinny dip he can. We decided that it will be another 5 years before we actually get a good picture of all of them together. On a funny note (well not so funny for Abby) she FREAKED OUT when it started raining. She was SO afraid that the rain was going to hurt the pool. She cried so hysterically that poor Keith had to completely drain it and put it up so she would stop crying. Poor baby.
It was a fun party and we were excited to celebrate a year of Jackson!

In unrelated but makes a good title news, Emmy has decided that she LOVES to play patty-cake. The funniest thing is when she "rolls it up". She bends her wrists way in and moves her hands all around. Here's here patty-caking in the tub!
