We have another busy week this week. Josh has his one year appointment with the pediatrician on Monday. Thursday we meet with the attorney to begin his readoption. Basically, that will give Josh a U.S. birth certificate. Plus, Matt and I work too.
Now let's get to all the new pictures!
Happy First Birthday Josh!!!!!
Josh had his birthday party on Saturday Nov. 17th. All the grandparents and great-grandpa were there as well as his aunt and two cousins. The kids has such a good time playing together. We had lots of food and two cakes. Plus, loads of presents.
Bring on the cake! Don't I look cute in my hat too.
The candle on the chocolate was from China. It was like a firework. I had to make a special cake because I was afraid that the ice cream cake would melt.
More ice cream cake!
This is just a funny picture of Josh I took looking like a pig.
It's Christmas Time! Time to put up the tree!
Sure, I can help put the tree stand together.
Look a new place to hide
It's a Partain family tradition from when Matt was little boy to make candy cane ornaments from beads and pipe cleaners. This is one from when Matt was a kid. When it comes time to put it on the tree you simply throw it on the tree and where it lands is where it stays.
Here is Josh and Matt preparing for the toss.If you look carefully you can see it mid-flight.
After a busy afternoon of putting up the tree, we got the koosh ball out for Josh to play with. He absolutely goes crazy for them. He will throw them on the table and then turn around and fall onto the pillows next to the table.
After awhile he decided to do the same thing on the step in the living room. He would toss them onto the kitchen floor, climb up and get them, toss them onto the living room floor and then go down the step to get the balls. He did this over and over again. Of course, when bathtime came around that still took precedence over the koosh balls.
