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.
The cake by Claudia Arizabaleta:
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.
Give me cake!
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.
I partied way hard.
So did Grandpa.

Too cute…love the lemur! That is a fantastic cake!
Thank you! My friend Claudia makes great cakes! She’s self taught, too.
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!
Interestingly enough I did suggest matching outfits to him. But the way he sweats it would probably kill him!
That and his uncooperative attitude when I try to put him in costumes…
I love the lemur costume! The cake was cute and you all looked like you had a lot of fun! Happy Birthday Connor!
It was fun. Just finally finished taking the decorations down today. Now I need an excuse to dress him as a lemur again…
He definitely scores a 10+ on the 1-10 cuteness scale! He’s also getting really big!
Thanks! He scores a 37 on the 1-10 too heavy to carry scale!
