Happy Birthday Griffyn

Hi Everyone! My name is Griffyn and welcome to my 1st Birthday party. Great-Grandma, Great-Aunt Mary, Uncle Dwight, Brandon and Jordan came for supper with me, Mom & Dad. I had lots of other company earlier in the day.
This is the card that Great-Aunt Mary and Uncle Dwight gave me. It has Winnie the Pooh and some of his friends on it. I like Pooh a lot and I see Aunt Mary has added a black and white picture to the back for Mom & I to color. I like to color and can do it with a little help from Mom. Great-Aunt Mary and Uncle Dwight gave me this Wonder Pets Flyboat. I love the animals and enjoy watching this show on TV. I'm going to have lots of fun with this. I can chew on the animals and everything. They can help me cut the rest of my teeth. They are also bobble heads. Daddy told me I must read all the cards. He helped me because I'm too small to read yet. It won't be long though. I love books.
Besides a card, Brandon and Jordan gave me a Thomas the Tank Engine board book. As I said, I love books and squealed with delight when I saw this.

Barry & Michelle bought me two wooden puzzles and I love them. Wooden puzzles are cool because they have handles for me to use to pick up the pieces.

Boy these things are heavy but I can pick them up all by myself. I'm going to be strong when I grow up.
Oh my, Great-Grandma certainly gave me a big gift. Wait until I get the paper off. Oh, it is a Rock Roll and Ride Trike. It has 3 stages. A rocker, then I can be pushed on it and then when I get bigger, I can ride it like a trike. I will have fun with this when Daddy gets it assembled.

I sure like wrapping paper. Cars wrapping paper, Winnie-the-Pooh wrapping paper and Thomas the Tank Engine gift bags. All the cool things that I like. My family sure is smart.

Isn't my diaper shirt cool? It says, "I'm 1." Mommy bought it and used fabric paint to put the words on. I like it a LOT!

I am going to use these puzzle pieces to make music. If I clap them together they kind of sound like a drum. I will have fun with these. Maybe one day I will play in a band.
Oh my! What is that stuff on my finger? I'm not sure if I should put it in my mouth or not.

Maybe if I take a little bit more I will know what it is. I have never really seen anything like this before. And that other stuff on the plate is cold. What could that be?

It is eatable and good too. Mom says it is cake and ice cream. Mmm! I wonder how often birthdays come along. All of these neat toys and books and then cake and ice cream. I could get used to this special treatment.

I just realized that I can use a plastic fork to feed myself. I wonder how come Mommy always does it when I'm perfectly capable of doing it on my own?

This stuff sure makes a guy sleepy, or maybe it's birthdays that makes a guy sleepy. I've had visitors all day and haven't had time to take a nap. I'm still hungry for this cake and ice cream but my eyes won't stay open. I can still find my mouth though.

Well, I think I've had enough of this for now. I'm just going to lay my head down on my high chair tray and take a little nap. Maybe I can finish it when I wake up.

Just before I drift off completely, I'd like to thank everyone for coming to my 1st Birthday party. Great-Aunt Mary told me she would put these photos on her blog so everyone could enjoy my big day with me. Anni, she gave me a hug from you and I sure do appreciate it. Now, off I go to sleep. ~Love, Griffyn~

    This was so cute the way you wrote it for Griffyn. Next time you see him give him a FUZZY WUZZY HUG FROM KITTY JUSTICE. First birthday are always special. We finally got a little bit of rain in the early hours of the morning but I wish it had continued today, we do not have enough and the mid west has too much. Another make shift dam gave way in Missouri yesterday and there was more flooding. Everyone needs to say and extra prayer for all of them . Have a good week and please don't over do. Peace
