So we have the Elders which consists of TJ and Little Miss, especially now that they’re both adults. Then there’s the Middles where Superman, Newbie, and Thunderer are, and finally the Smols.
Here, little Fireball is definately showing off some of that Smol Sass…
Not sure why this picture from his birthday is out of order, but looking at him study his gifts is priceless.
I don’t remember at this point why she wanted to be in my lap to eat rather than eat on her own, but here we are.
This sweet little ham can’t pass up grinning at the camera though since she knows she’s being photographed.
But then it’s back to the serious business of eating.
Behold my newly (in March) one year old, as we present to you, your birthday cake!
I love how intensely he watches me come out with the cake.
He very much wanted to just reach out and touch the candle, so Redflare naturally helped him blow it out.
Oddly he wasn’t overly interested in the traditional cake ‘baby slap’ once the candle was removed. He looked around at the rest of us with a ‘okay, now what’ expression on his face.
Eventually he did gently pat the cake and we dug in, but it’s interesting to watch how his gentle personality grows.
At this point I’m not really sure of the circumstances that led us to getting both smols asleep on me in shifts, but I’ll certainly look back at these March pictures happily all the same.
Sisters are comfortable to sleep on, as confirmed by Fireball.
Newbie now joins us on the Switch as of this birthday, so of course it’s time to put her on the road with a family favorite: Need for Speed.
And here’s where I was talking about how some of the pictures sometimes get jumbled. We’ll roll from Newbie’s birthday forward to Fireball’s.
She was interested, but not super excited about the books…
But the ball set…
The ball set she loved.
I think this is going to be another case of birthdays mixing together just a little bit for some reason accidentally.
Here she’s enjoying blowing out her candles while in the warm new frog thingy she also got.
Trying to catch a good picture of a toddler turning two is, well, a challenge.
