The Little Mister: day 365

Baybuh Cuckoo, as he is affectionately called by his brothers (and I'm sorry to tell you also by his parents), turned the big ONE. It was just another day as far as he was concerned. It is absolutely freezing here right now, but we braved the big chill and went to a local indoor play place for the 5 and under crowd. Andy had a blast but Eli wilted rather quickly. He enjoyed this car carrier for all of 5 seconds before he decided he was tired. He tried repeatedly to lie down on the floor and take a nap. So Andy and I enjoyed some Chik-fil-a for lunch and Eli slept away the afternoon.
Once Steve and Luke came home, the brothers were beside themselves with excitement. I don't think the video footage from this little shindig will ever see the light of day. Steve and I spent a ridiculous amount of time telling the boys to back off and let Eli open his own presents. Andy ended up in tears because he couldn't open anything. Eli had zero interest in his gifts and shoved them aside rather quickly. He did pause for a minute to chew on his new car.
Nothing says happy birthday like your brothers making you cry. They commandeered his new tool set and proceeded to poke, prod and irritate the little guy. Oh, the joys of being the caboose. Not at all interested in his red velvet mini cupcake. That's okay, your parents find them quite tasty. Your brothers swiped your toys, we'll take care of the cupcakes. Happy birthday, sweet fella! We are so grateful for you.
