Yesterday we celebrated Alekzander’s first birthday. Ashley and Andrew threw him a Pilgrims and Indians themed gathering, complete with the Mayflower, Plymouth Rock, Indian headbands, and a turkey shaped pumpkin cake. They also collected 175 pounds of food to donate to a local shelter! That makes my heart smile. Alekzander is already starting to change the world – he is even helping to bring a baby from Africa home to his forever family. This is how cute he looked crawling around on the Mayflower in his special [dirty] birthday shirt:
I really like my little Alekzoo. In fact, I think I’m going to gobble up his thighs for Thanksgiving [on his real birthday].
