The Dude's Party

Charlie totally surprised us at his birthday party.  I had made a prediction before the guest's arrived that he would keep his poker face on the whole time and not stray too far from Momma. That's just his personality when he is around a lot of people and that's A-OK with us.  He is very pensive and thoughtful and it shows on his face:)  I couldn't tell you how many times I've heard someone ask "I wonder what he is thinking?"  I wonder myself sometimes.  All I know is the wheels are always turning up there because the kid is smart as a whip:)  Anyways, much to my surprise, Charlie was a little social butterfly at his party.  He walked around and mingled with his family and friends, sat in his chair and opened his gifts, and enjoyed eating his smash cake (something else I wasn't sure how he'd react to).  You could tell he wasn't to sure about all eyes on him while singing happy birthday but he didn't let that stop him from digging in and having fun!  He had a great time and I, as usual, was very pleased with our little one year old sweet baby boy.
