Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Mommy! Didn't know what to get you.....




Should I write you the perfect poem?






Or help you tidy up the kitchen? (I didn't do it)

Maybe help with the laundry?

Or buy you makeup?

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren







A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan











A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving










Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. ~Sam Levenson



Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected. ~Red Buttons








A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done. ~Author Unknown





You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. ~William D. Tammeus







I didn't end up doing any of those things but I wanted to tell you that you're the best Mommy ever and I love you!

Never could get in here before







Always willing to help with the recycling

Got in a couple naps with Gramma Jan






Practicing for my future paper route









 


And, finally learned how to use a straw







It's a big world out there, can't wait to check it out

1st Birthday!


Daddy says I need to celebrate my birthday for at least 3 weeks...it started in Massachusetts after I finished my asparagus...








Hello, what's this?



My first cupcake, thanks Gramma Jan!


I'm a passionate eater






Then, on my actual birthday Mommy took me to Red Mango




Mmmm....we had frozen yogurt



...And I got a sugar rush






Back at home, time for some presents

Aunt Keri was nice enough to stick these to my head











Gettin' crazy in here!








Decorations for my party







The next weekend I invited some family over to celebrate my big day!


Me and Aunt Keri





Gramma Jan and Aunt Barbara






Hanging with Sabina




Wild child




Lani knows the way to my heart




Grandpa David knows his food






More cupcakes from my favorite gourmet baker! Thanks Melissa!









MMMM...Carrot cake




David looks like he's ready for one




Some alone time with Saba..











I tried to feed Grandma Gloria for a change




It was such a nice day we moved the party out to the front yard






Hangin' on the stoop




Mommy did most of the unwrapping for me




What is all this stuff?








Hmmm...can't wait to sink my teeth into this!

Thanks to everyone who made my birthday a memorable experience!

Passover


My first Passover...




Everyone said I looked very handsome








I helped Saba with the readings...





And got drunk on grapejuice

I am a "Matzah Man"

And I love Grandma Rose's cake

Finding the Afikomen can be a lucrative business





What's going on over here?



Grandma Rose and I find some quiet time in the kitchen
