Little Man, Big Birthday

My not-so-little man has had a busy fall. He's been growing like a weed, getting around better than ever, learning to play games, throwing temper tantrums, and growing teeth like nobody's business.

Did I mention he's growing?

Jack also recently celebrated his first birthday. He had Mickey Mouse decorations and balloons. Bunches of presents. And a whole lot of attention.

And lots of Jack's favorite foods, and some of our own. Caprese salad. Marinated mozzarella. Chopped veggies. Fruit with a dip so wonderful that I wish I remembered what I put in it. Beef stew. Biscuits. And cake. I made the chocolate fudge layer cake recipe, with the frosting from Famous Dave's chocolate cake. It was good. It was very, very good.

It's been quite a year. Happy birthday, Jack!

P.S. Why yes, I did just discover the "collage" function in my photo editing software. Quiet, you.
