The many first birthday celebrations
Evan is, as my sister says, a well-celebrated boy! We were in North Carolina for the week before his birthday, to celebrate with my parents (and avoid the Super Bowl craziness in Indy), then had the Johnsons over for dinner on February 9. He wasn’t feeling great, so the festivities weren’t all that joyous, but then we had a small party of close friends over the following weekend. So, he had finally figured out what to do with the cake by the time that party rolled around. It still took two attempts, though, as we were too close to naptime and the applause and encouragement from the crowd sent him right over the edge.
