Friday Fave Five, Valentine's Edition

Welcome to Willow's weekly post for
This week I am featuring ONE important event!

Because, after all, nothing could compete with a FIRST birthday!

The New Boy turned ONE year old!

He celebrated with his own yummy food.

What he doesn't know won't hurt him, right?
A Classic Pooh Hunny Pot birthday cake made by his mama.

THAT was definitely a hit.

Wooden building blocks!

His very own toy cell phone so he won't take his mama's phone and call (which he did!)or Australia!*

*Reference for non-parents: taken from Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Oh so sweet! I'm so happy to see these great photos of New Boy's first birthday. And yes it does deserve the whole five favorites!!

Dorothy said...

What a cute little guy that New Boy is! I love the picture of him with frosting on his fingers and face.

Gorgeous and you just cannot beat blue icing when you are one year old.

Mo said...

Well, Happy Birthday, Little Dude! (great cake, BTW, Willow...too cute!)

Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Jen said...

i love first birthday parties..your cake looks awesome.

We bought building blocks for our first son's first birthday ... 26 years ago. They last through all three of our kids, daycare kids, and then got passed on to others. It is the most economical, practical, happiness-producing toy I think a parent can buy.

Happy Birthday to that adorable New Boy. He's a good looking fella.

How sweet! I can't believe my own little gr. baby will be 3 in June, but I do recall her 1st b.d. and I have tons of cake photos, too!
What a great cake and wonderful gifts--especially his phone! He's a tad too young to be making those long-distance calls!

Happy FFF! Dana

Jada said...

Happy Birthday to your big boy! I hope he is content with his own cell phone. :-) That cake is adorable, as is the birthday boy.

I think the little kids with the cell phones are so cute!

Well, an exceptionally nice group of fives for New Boy! I like his phone very well with its big buttons -- I will have to check T-mobile next time I need a phone!

Re our other conversation :) I made a short list (man, was it hard! there were so many). You can email me, if you want, at jahlersATcsusmDOTedu (also, there's a setting where you can tell Blogger to email you all of your comments; I'll try to figure out where it is, but I think it's in the controls).

What a precious main event! It made me smile. Congratulations on having such an adorable grandson.

Awwww! First birthdays are so wonderful. I remember thinking that both of my kids seemed sooooo old on their first birthdays.

Deb said...

A wonderful celebration! And may he always be surrounded by loving family and friends.

Cindy Garber Iverson said...

How precious! The first birthday is always so special when you let the baby dig into the cake. Looks like that's what happened! And blocks... what a great gift.


Merisi said...

Oh so sweet! :-)

"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" is a favorite on our book shelves, also a beloved performance at the Kennedy Center in DC.

There's nothing like a first birthday party! He's so cute that that frosting on his face. We had a first birthday for our little grandson a few months ago.
Thanks for visiting my friday five!
