Caroline with Rory and her friend Kim. Kim’s daughter’s birthday is only two weeks from Rory’s.
Rory feeling skeptical about what’s about to happen.
Maybe it’s ok.
No, it is definitely NOT ok.
Eddy was very willing to fill in! He’s one year older than Rory.

Time for presents. Caroline and Rory had lots of help from the other kids at the party.
Packers football! Who could that be from?
Eddy wants to help!

I can’t believe Rory can be a year old already, but this past weekend we celebrated his first birthday! Danny’s friend owns a cute little restaurant in Forest Park called Amelia’s and closed it down for the afternoon for the party. I was sort of dreading going to Forest Park, but it only took us about 20 minutes to get there from our house! The party was a fun mix of family and a bunch of our friends. Rory was not into the cake at all, but he seemed to like the opening of presents. Well, I think he liked the paper the best.
After the party we went to Danny and Caroline’s house in Oak Park to hang out some more. Somebody had to drink all the leftover beer and it might as well be us. And Ed! Rory missed his nap because of the party and somehow stayed awake and happy long into the night. And he did eat a bit of cake once the pressure was off and he was seated comfortably in his high chair at home.
Happy birthday, Rory!
