We tried to get some fancy one year pictures Friday after work. We went to a really cute park.
|Did not work out.|
Saturday morning, I found the culprit - a new tooth had popped through. Teeth ruin everything. But I guess they are pretty necessary.
On Saturday, we were all out the door by 6am, and Eric and Dalton shared an important first together.
|First train ride!|
After we arrived in New York, we took the Long Island Railroad out to a super fancy house on Long Island for Emily's baby shower.
|In one picture Eric's eyes were closed, in one picture my eyes were closed. I made the obvious choice.|
Woken up at 5:30, no nap, in a strange, non baby proofed house, and this kid could not have been more sweet and smiley. Naturally, he was the hit of the party. I met Emily through the internet, of course, that's where cool people meet friends these days. She's having a boy, and as we all know, I'm biased, so I'm extra excited for her.
After that, Nikki, one of my good friends from college came all the way out to pick us up so we could spend the night with her family.
|BUT WE DRESSED THEM IN THE SAME PJS WITHOUT PLANNING IT OMG.|
Teachers are known for their high salaries and deluxe accommodations. We got the princess suite.
Generally, if you are a teacher, you can either have one child and a guest room, or two children and no guest room. Not both. Unless you were wise enough to marry someone rich. We are enjoying that guest room while it lasts.
While we were visiting Nikki, Dalton took FOUR STEPS! Everyone saw it and he's been doing it consistently since! He is definitely not officially walking yet, but he's getting more and more steady and choosing to move around by taking steps instead of crawling.
Dalton's first birthday party is this weekend. Hurricane Joaquin is putting a bit of a damper on that, but at least Dalton was excited to check out the rain.
|He looks so big. I can't handle it.|
I have done exactly zero things to prepare for his party. Should be awesome.
