If you didn't already know, we held a party Saturday at my Dad's place to celebrate our Kung Fu Panda's first birthday. Here's the day, in pictures.
We had hors d'oeuvres while the main meal was prepared.
For adults: baked tortilla chips, salsa, and a veggie tray.
For KFP, dehydrated apple bits and sweet potato puffs.
KFP plays with a favorite sorting toy while
we wait for dinner to be prepared.
He got a nice selection of gifts, including several books,
a large green ball, a ladybug pillow pet,
a baby laptop, and a toddler-sized stroller.
I got this bib at the party store.
It says, "Mr. One-derful."
KFP checks out his new ladybug Pillow Pet.
KFP listens as his dad reads him the card.
Uncle Squash looks on.
KFP is momentarily distracted by the camera.
His birthday cake was an Apple Swirl with an apple glaze.
KFP was fascinated with touching the cake.
In actuality, KFP was more interested in
touching the cake than eating it.
I had trouble getting him to sample the cake:
the only time he'll probably push cake away!
He engages in more cake touching.
I managed to get him to try
one bite of cake.He seemed
more surprised than pleased.
He refused to wear a hat. He did, however,
enjoy touching my party hat.
Through sheer coincidence, he received three Elmo cards.
KFP plays with his new baby laptop. It has shapes,
letters, numbers, Spanish, music, and lights.
He loves closing and opening the laptop,
because that starts a song about opposites.
Cake is more fun to touch than to eat for 1-year-olds.
