Wilder is vibrantly embracing toddlerhood. I'm getting there.
Snapshot of his birthday: we grocery shopped, lunched with Daddy at our favorite mexican place, and caught up with my former coworkers at the Kansas Health Foundation. All was right in the world.
Until I checked our mailbox. A card for Wilder from G'ma and G'pa Dunning read:
...when we first saw you, we couldn't believe how beautiful you were! But you are even more beautiful to us now-one year later.
...each time we see you, we are blessed just being near you...your huge smile and sweet nature makes all things better in our lives.
I held it together as best I could, but, seriously?
We mustn't forget the evening's festivities. I made Wilder a rainbow cake (as featured on the Whatever blog) that we enjoyed, then passed along to Shawn's coworkers. I misordered the colors, green should have come before blue (ROYGBIV). Oops.
We didn't give Wilder a lot of cake because he still has 2 more cakes to mangle. ;-) yay, parties!
These gifts seem boring--a sippy cup and baby Nutrigrain bars? But, we'd alreay given him a bunch of goodies (couldn't wait).
Wilder, you are perfectly yummy. How blessed we've been to have you in our lives these 368 days!
