Peanut's 1st Birthday

Peanut turned one! We had the best party ever! I know how to throw a birthday party that's for sure, and everyone agreed with me! Those cake classes came in handy too because I made his birthday cake, and everyone was so impressed....pat on my back!

The theme was monkey's and the reason was because he got a stuffed animal monkey from my mom and dad for Christmas and he loves the thing! Anyway, so I decided to do a monkey theme. I spent a lot of money on this kids party too! Whoa! I got plates and stuff with a monkey on it, and then I ordered M&M's with his picture on them! Everyone loved that too! I made gift bags for each family and put the M&M's in there, along with a picture of Peanut that I stamped a frame around! It was a lot of work and money, but so worth it! He is my baby and he is worth every penny we spent on him!!

My latest adventure

For the longest time I have wanted to open my own bakery and decorate cakes because I love to bake, I love cakes, and I love doing crafty stuff, so I decided to take the plunge and take a cake decorating class! I went to my class last Thursday and it was so interesting. We got tons of homework to prepare for next class, so today I decided to practice making my icing and coloring the icing for my next class. Needless to say, my cake turned out really poorly....I totally forgot to grease the bottom of the pan (which I have NEVER forgotten to do before!), so you can only imagine what happened when I took the cake out of the pan....crumb city! Anyway, so then I decided to practice my icing because in the class, she made it look soooooooo cake looks like crap!! I hope my cake for Thursday's class turns out better than the one I decorated today otherwise I am in for trouble, and my bakery dreams are going downhill! haha

Tiny person......big germs!

Holy cow! Now I am sick! Talk about big germs for such a small little person! Is that how it works? The baby gets sick and then we all get sick? First the baby was sick with a cold, and then he gave it to Gilbert....I somehow managed not to get sick. Just when I thought Nicolas was getting better he developed bronchitis, and now I have the worst bronchitis I have ever had!!! Thanks Peanut! I am hacking and coughing like there is no tomorrow! Talk about unlucky. I have been sick for about 3 days now and I am hating every second of it! Now the baby is getting somewhat better I hope he doesn't get it back!

Peanut's 1st Christmas

Peanut's 1st Christmas was so fun! We got a family tree together, and I bought an ornament to commemorate his first Christmas. I even put lights on him and took a picture!! Christmas was really about Gilbert and I, and the Grandma's because Nicolas didnt really know what was going on, but he still had fun.

Gilbert and I bought him the Crawl and Cruise jungle and he seemed to love it a lot! My parents got him his first credit card an American Express gift card with $500.00 on it to spend on clothes and necessities. Gilbert made a lot of "stand up comedy jokes" about Peanut's credit card, about how we should just use his credit card for our things, and then I would say "we can't do that!", and then Gilbert would reply, "he uses my credit card, but Lord forbid we use his for anything!" haha Needless to say we would make fun that he was the youngest kid we knew with his own credit card!!!

Santa Claus and getting sick!

Today we took Peanut to see Santa Claus at the mall (haha), and he was so good! When he first got onto his lap you could tell he was like "who the hell is this guy?" Then Peanut blew a bubble out of his nose which should have been an indication that he was getting sick, but of course I am a new mom and I did not know any better!! Anyway, he seemed to be okay with Santa Claus, so we took the picture as seen above. I don't think he was feeling too well because he never really looked at the camera, and he did not really smile much, so this is the best we could get, but I love it, and I think it captures his curiosity for looking at what everything is!
Now he is sick with a cold or something like that, and he is so congested and snotty, and I feel so helpless because there is nothing I can really do. This is his first illness believe it or not! The Dr. was amazed at the fact that he has never been sick. I guess me being a germ-a-phobe has paid off! haha

Peanut is Baptized

Today we finally baptized the baby. It was such a wonderful day. We had all our family and some close friends there to help celebrate such a special occasion. This was not a good picture of the preist above, but it'll do. Anyway, he did not seem to mind the water or the church or music at all, he was quiet the entire time (I thought he was going to be all chatty like he normally is!). Yes, he is wearing a shorts baptismal outfit because that was the only one big enough to fit him!! This child is so long it's not even funny!

Christmas tree shopping

Today we took peanut to the Christmas tree lot and shopped for a Christmas tree. It was cold and the perfect day to do it since it felt like a Christmasy day (I know that's not really a word but work with me people!) Anyway, he seemed to be very curious looking around at all the big trees and he really didn't know what to think about it all! He reached out to touch the tree and he yanked his hand back quickly because he had never felt the prickly trees before. It was the cutest thing!!
