Tooth #2

After a whole weekend of celebrations and a whiny day on Monday, Ian's second tooth appeared much to my surprise and relief! My birthday was on Saturday, and we celebrated with my parents on Friday night by having a delicious steak dinner at Texas Roadhouse. On Saturday, my friend Janelle's little boy, Triston, had his first birthday party. We enjoyed celebrating his first birthday with him, and it gave me a realistic vision of how little a one year old really cares about his first birthday party; I think he was most confused by the fact that he was naked except for his diaper, sitting in his high chair, with a small cake in front of him while a crowd of people surrounded him singing and taking pictures...he wasn't quite sure what he was supposed to be doing. Ian enjoyed watching all of the other kids run around and play; it's hard to belive that Ian will be running around before we know it! On Sunday, Phil's parents took us out to eat at the Melting Pot. None of us had ever eaten there before, and we all enjoyed the meal and atmosphere immensely! Ian wouldn't let me out of his sight ALL DAY on Monday, and I was just hoping he wasn't getting another cold (we had just gotten over his first cold). Thank goodness he had another little tooth on the bottom to match his first one on Tuesday morning. Since that tooth has appeared, my happy little man has returned as well as him sleeping almost through the night again! Hopefully it will be a while before any more teeth come in; Mommy needs to catch up on some sleep and patience before then. "Happy Birthday Mommy!"
Holding onto one of the balloons that were attached to Triston's high chair. They were distracting him for his entire meal, so he was pretty excited to be able to finally get a squash-covered hand on one of them.

The expression on his face is priceless in this picture; he looks like he is getting caught doing something wrong.
I think he has the hang of opening presents. He was trying his hardest to get the paper out of the bag.

Here is Ian reclining in his high chair while enjoying some water.
