My nephew, Lord Stanley, is one today. Happy Birthday, Lord Stanley! I wish I could be there to see you enjoy your first birthday cake. I bet you are having a great time today.
I was able to spend some time with Lord Stanley and his sister, Cutie Pie, and their parents last fall. I loved it. Lord Stanley was such a happy baby. My favorite time with Lord Stanley was after his bath, his Dad would get him ready for bed. He smelled so good. Good enough that when I got home I went out and bought the lavender baby lotion that they used for myself. After he was swaddled, his Dad handed him to me and I would feed him his bottle and watch him fall asleep. It was a wonderful feeling.
During my visit with Lord Stanley and his family, I got to enjoy Halloween with him. He was Sebastian the Crab, from The Little Mermaid. Cutie Pie was Ariel. I'm not sure what Lord Stanley thought of the whole experience as he was only four months old, but I enjoyed it.
Lord Stanley has had a lot of cute moments and it was hard to pick which ones to share with you, but here are a few from his first year.
Just hours new!
He would kick and kick to get the music to play.
In his bouncy seat!
Look at all that dark hair and great grin!
(Lord Stanley and Cutie Pie are nicknames I have chosen to use for my nephew and niece on this blog to protect their identity at such a young age.)
