So the boy turned 1 on September 3. We waited for the big celebration until Diana and Alan were in residence. I mean, Sam doesn't care, or know, so we figured better to have some grandparents here to help fete Sam and his success in making it a year.
Anyway, today was the day. Some friends came over to help us out. Swimming, snacks, playing in the yard...
....and, oh, what have we here?????
Ah, cake. Other people seemed to be eating it, so Sam dove right in. He's not much for baby food anymore, even fancy homemade baby food. He wants to eat what we're eating. So, once he saw us doing it...
...two-handed, with gusto
The grandparents were relatively well-behaved.
