So, next weekend we're having a birthday party/crawfish boil.
We usually do two a year, one for friends, and one for family.
We've had as many as 45 people here before for one.
This year, we're combining the two for Riley and Caroline's joint 1st b-day party.
We realized this week that even though we pared the usual invite list down, we are quickly approaching 60 RSVPs for crawfish. Plus there are at least 8 or 10 people coming that aren't eating crawfish.
Because it's going to be a madhouse, we've been preparing early and haven't had time to do much blogworthy stuff.
I'll give you some pics anyway though.
The main storyline in Riley's life is still the whole walking and climbing thing, both of which he's getting much better with.
The highlight of his week was a visit from his nanny, Lesley. He first showed her how good he is at climbing onto his train.
Then he showed her how good he is at falling off of his train.
He also learned a new trick this week called unrolling the toilet paper.
And he dares you to tell him not to.
He's had sinus congestion for a week or two, which has led to some mouth breathing, drooling, snotty nose, crusty faced goodness.
He's charitable with his newfound skills and pushed Gabe across the room on the train, before showing him how to make all of the sounds.
This pic just makes him look much older to me.
And finally, here's the Twin Terrors, Riley and Jimmy, caught in mid stride.
Hopefully, I'll have the time or energy to be funny next week, but if everyone that RSVP'd actually shows up, I'm doubting it.
