Nora went to her first birthday party (that wasn't hers) this weekend, and it was Sullivan's 3rd birthday. He's in this picture, somewhere, along with a bunch of other boys...and Nora is pretty easy to pick out because she's wearing a shirt.
Sully's parents (Mike and Patti) have a great house with a swing set/play yard/ slide thing out back. The best thing I liked about their party was how SANE it was for a kid who's three. I mentioned to Mike how great I thought it was...not overplanned, but perfectly done with several kiddy pools and Slip-n-Slide they had set up. You really couldn't do better for a slew of 2 to 4-year-olds.
Anyway, the kids had a blast, we had a blast, and barbecued hotdogs and hamburgers and a yummy cake with ice cream.
And upstairs playing with Jamey and Nora and Morgan, we saw Sully's awesome bedroom with a jungle/safari type theme, and on the wall was a giraffe, and as Nora walked up and pointed to it and said "RHINO!" without any prodding from me!
Several new words followed last night and today...baseball, Hannah, Mimi...
The cascade of words has begun!
