Truman's Birthday Party

I thought I would share a few pics from Truman's birthday party.  We had a great time.  I'm still adjusting to the fact that he is actually a year old!

We had a monkey theme for our monkey boy.  Yes, that is a giant blow up monkey that I purchased online.  I lost my mind a bit with the monkey theme.
We had the whole gang here including both sets of grandparents, the aunts and uncles and cousins.  Including my niece Kennedy who Truman adores.  We enjoyed a dinner of lasagna, salad and garlic bread.  Truman loves pasta.

Truman is a bit spoiled...we went overboard of course with the gifts.
His big gift was a Cozy Coupe.  I have always wanted to get one of these.  He was super excited...but,

I think that I was almost more excited...can you tell?
Baby at the wheel!  Can you see his monkey t-shirt?  I told you I went a bit nutty with the whole monkey theme.

I made monkey cupcakes.  The were really too cute.  I can't believe that I didn't get a picture of just the cupcakes...but I think you can see it here.  He was ready to go for it...
He was a little shy and overwhelmed by the whole singing thing...

Um, mom?  That doesn't look organic.
Once he got the hang of it he got really into it!  Look at that look of concentration in his eyes!

He didn't like the cupcakes out of the wrapper...I don't get it but he liked to eat it that way so who am I to judge?
After all that sugar he was a blur of action until he finally crashed.
It was a great party.  I don't think he "got it" but mommy and daddy were very happy to celebrate!

    Don't these moments make all the hard work so worth it???!!
