First of all, I am so sorry that I have fallen so far behind on this blog! Gus celebrated a birthday weeks ago, and I have yet to share those photos. So, I will be posting a few different posts today. Enjoy!
First of all, we had a tiny celebration on Gus's actual birthday. We had some friends over for a playdate and I made cookies. But Gus was still happy to blow out a few candles.
He just needed a little help with the blowing!
That Sunday we were all together for mass and we went to play at the park afterward.
Bernadette had fun there too!
And...Gus was having fun until Daddy insisted on taking a picture with both kids!
After the park we headed over to Bill's Uncle and Aunt's house, where Bill snapped a few pictures of me and the baby.
And, before we knew it, Baba and Pappy and Mimi and Pops came to visit. Nothing could have kept Pops from getting down of the floor and playing with Gus!
As a birthday treat, Baba and Pappy got Gus a swimming pool! He had fun playing out there with his new swim trunks from Aunt Amy and Tina!
We also made sure to stop by our Community Center pool while Baba and Pappy were visiting. Bernadette is going to be a little fish, just like her brother!
Gus also proved to be a big help in the kitchen. He and Baba made perogies!
One afternoon Gus set to work making a SUPER card for his daddy. He loves to paint!
We also spent lots of good time at the park.
And then, on Saturday, we celebrated Gus's birthday again, this time with a fork-lift cake the Baba made!
This time he had mastered blowing out the candles all by himself!
Thanks, and I'll be back with more pictures in a few minutes here!
