Connor’s birthday party: You will throw up from cuteness overload. Consider yourself warned.

I should clarify my title refers purely to Connor, not my decorating skills. But first, the decorations. It was a zoo theme, so I had Connor’s kazillion stuffed animals spread everywhere. I’m actually just realizing how much stuff I forgot to photograph, but that’s okay because I have so many awesome pics of Connor I don’t even care.

Please note that my initial plan for the aquatic zone of the zoo involved using Connor’s baby bathtub as an actual pond. However, I discovered that none of his ducks have the remotest interest in floating upright, so I felt a pool of water containing what would appear to be a bunch of costumed dead ducks might not achieve the ambience I was aiming for.

And the outfit. Oh yes. The outfit. Do you know what I am?

I’m a lemur. Mom almost bought me a panda costume, but then she saw the lemur. Lemur=random. Lemur=you dressed your kid as a what? So here I am.

But frankly, life as a lemur is hot and sweaty, so I did have to rock a second outfit for part of the party. But Mommy is proud because I learned that one must suffer to look good.

Then I blew out some candles and took my first taste of cake. It was alright, but I don’t know why my mother is so obsessed with it. It’s no bottle of milk. But she did just sneak off to the kitchen to get more, so I guess it will grow on me.

  1. LOVED the theme and all the cuteness! That lemur costume is ASWESOME! I think you need to get Chris one and they can match for fathers day (I’m sure it will only be 100 degrees or so). Loved the cake too – so cute!

  2. I love the lemur costume! The cake was cute and you all looked like you had a lot of fun! Happy Birthday Connor!
