Well, we made it through one whole year! Just seventeen more and then I’m released of all responsibility, right?! I promise I won’t go on and on about the year and how it has changed my life, blah, blah, blah….but, seriously, Frank is the very best thing in the world! Everyday he is a little more fun! His vocabulary is still expanding. His new thing right now is to point at something and ask, “Izzit?” [roughly translated: “What is it?”]. We try to be patient and tell him the word for everything he points to, but I’m already seeing how this will get old! He hasn’t caught on and actually repeated any of the words yet, but I know any day now he will repeat, “wireless router” or “panini press” right back to me!
We began celebrating Frank’s big day a week before the actual event (like a true Vaught). My parents came into town last Thursday night, and my cousin, Johnelle, and her husband, Corey, drove up from San Antonio on Friday. They were all a tremendous help with the party, and I couldn’t have pulled it off without them!
We held the party on Saturday morning. Heath and his dad cooked a great meal of fried catfish, tater tots, hushpuppies, and various other fried treats for lunch. I ordered the cake and a matching cupcake for Frank from my favorite bakery, Casa Linda, in East Dallas. And, naturally, the theme was monkeys! Here are some pics:
Frank also has a great party trick that he and I worked on for two weeks leading up to his birthday. I’m SO glad our good friend Matt captured it on video. Unfortunately, I can’t get it to upload onto the blog…Please know that I am working on it and will post AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!! Until then, hope everyone is well. Enjoy the still pics! Love to all.
