Not to mention playing with the new toys...
...I guess since Nicky didn't really have many toys to play with when he was a little tyke at the orphanage (much less super-cool ones that light up and make noise), he's super-interested in toys geared towards the little ones now. Hey, as long as he's entertained and happy, we're happy - he can play with a one-year-old's toy until he's blue in the face! Speaking of - the intent he showed while trying to figure out each toy was quite impressive. He furrowed his brow and got lost in his own thoughts and barely paid attention to the commotion going on around him.
Here's Nicky's new "fake smile"...
Daddy was calling his name and he thought it was because we wanted to take
We all sang 'happy birthday' to Austin, then he half-heartedly dug into some yummy jello-jigglers with whip cream on top.
After sharing some ice cream with Daddy, we decided we better take Nicky home - it was past his nap-time and he was starting to peter out a bit (that's kinda fun to say..."peter out"!).
Thank you for sharing your birthday with us, Austin, and cheers to many more!!!
