An Elmo-rific Birthday
Where, oh where did my baby go?
Somebody really likes Elmo. Someone formerly known as "The Baby". (Okay, actually we still call him the baby, but since he is now TWO YEARS OLD, we should probably switch it up at some point...)
Birthday Baby Boy and Brother
The celebration was low-key... because while I love the idea of elaborate birthday parties, I'm more into attending them than planning and executing them. So he received some fun presents (tent and Elmo backpack) from Grandma & Grandpa... and $4 worth of Elmo merchandise from mom & dad from Target's dollar spot. (Yep, that's right--we spent a whopping $4 plus tax on our kid for his birthday. Technically, $8 if you add in the cupcake liners and Elmo cupcake toppers.)

Aunt, Uncle, Cousin & Baby Cousin joined us for dinner and cupcakes that evening, which made the day more festive!

And to top off the evening, the little guy serenaded us with his favorite song. "Elmo's World", of course. We didn't capture it on video that night, but here he is tonight after his bath. Clutching the new Elmo given to him by his Cousin. (Please kindly ignore my own singing...)
