first birthday in thailand

today we celebrate our first birthday since our transplantation relocation. and it’s c1314. he’s really a teenager now, no more just pretending. cuz 13 seems almost like your just fakin’ teen, but 14? that’s the real stuff. so, today, in honor of c1314 – it’s all him, all the time.


c2 and his great-grandad. c2 seemed to have an extra portion of that hold me and let me drain the life out of you gift that so many babies seem to have.

c4 was a ring bearer and he was less than impressed with the tasks entailed.

c10, first day of not homeschool.

c11, too cool.

c13, i’m sure there is some cool new verb for zoning out with your ipod, but i don’t know it.

c13, just a few weeks ago.

  3. I was going to comment on what a great progression of pictures those are, and Happy Birthday to the Birthday boy and all that good stuff. But Im totally distracted and completely heebed out by the whole gekko in your bed. You would have to peel me off the ceiling after that!

    and he seems to have made it his home! two nights in a row.

  6. a belated happy birthday to C14!

    The ringbearer picture is priceless!

    ng – when he got to the front of the aisle he looked over at me and stage whispered, sort of, “couldn’t he have carried this himself.” and motioned his head towards the groom.

  7. He looks so good– past and present. Hope it’s a wonderful year!

    erika, thanks. we’re expecting a fantastic year!

  8. Looking at the pictures…all I see is his mom as we were growing up, even the mohawk!! 🙂

    yes, it seems he got the “weird hair” gene from me. or maybe that should be fun hair…

  9. Happy Birthday to you!
    Happy Birthday to you!

    Happy Birthday to you!
    Swashed tomatoes and stew!
    Bread and butter in the gutter!
    Happy Birthday to you!
