So I know it's been a couple months since I posted anything. I actually meant to go through my camera and edit some of Oliver's birthday party pictures but I have a million other things on my plate that it kind of just fell through the cracks.
On another note, my baby brother turned 15 yesterday ( a Cinco de Mayo baby)
and he requested a Superhero party- specifically Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, and I honestly could not have been happier with how it turned out.
We had a mechanical bull, a live band and a DJ, 3 piñatas, and tons of food and drinks to go through the night. I appointed myself in charge of the cake table and spent just 2 days crafting and decorating. The party was a last minute thing, so I didn't spend weeks stressing and obsessing over minor details and was able to just focus on the big things.
So far he is trying to stand on his own. At first I don't think he was aware of it, he would just let go of whatever he was holding on to and then a couple seconds later you could tell he realized it and would drop down. The past couple weeks he's been standing on his own on purpose! He will look at us with a huge smile or start waving his hands around in excitement. After we applaud and cheer, he will slowly sit down. My dad says he's seen him stand up on his own too, but I haven't =(
He's also getting pretty fast when we walk him holding only one of his hands,
or when he's pushing around his car or stool.
His birthday party is this weekend! After much debate I have decided to paint the brownies, cookies, and fondant cake embellishments I will be making. I'm inspired by these pictures:
