1st Birthday Party:Success

Mrs. GD and I have been (seriously) planning JTW's for the past month or so. The event took place last Saturday. Mrs. GD does not deal with stress to well. When she is anxious she bites he nail like crazy.I am happy that she still has all her finger intact. 

The amount of food that we put on could have fed a small army. We did have a great turnout for the lil JFW's 1st Birthday Bash.We are still eating some of the food that was at the party...I am not complaining we really had to decide what to have for dinner since. We are a well fed family off of potatoes salad, pulled pork,and  homemade baked beans.We did find something out we are just going put on brats and hot dogs instead of shelling out the extra money for the pulled pork. YA!! Win for us.

I think that it is perfect to have a little one to be born in May. We thought that JTW's closet was full before the birthday party. With all the summer clothes that we received, I believe that she might need a new and improved closet

So how does the your child's 1st birthday bash?


Tupperware and Beyond

TupperwareLast night my wife held a Tupperware Party that she holds every couple years. In my opinion(usually does matter that much), I thought that last night get together turned out pretty good. I think that I saw all the snapping of lids and air tight quality for one night.

My job was not watch the consultant present the new and improved merchandise. It was to keep JDW busy and not getting into everything and that is what yearlings usually do anyway. Every father knows a happy mother is a happy household:) Job completed with a success. We watched some Monster Inc mostly until she was ready to laid down for bed.

That party happened on Wednesday and on Saturday we have JTW's 1st birthday party. I for one cannot believe that it is ALMOST. My wife is nervous, but I know that it will go fine. The parties that we put on usually go pretty good. I help out as much as I can(the mover and vertical presence), but my wife does a great job organizing the parties.
With all these parties going and the binging is hard to stop.

All in all it should be interesting nonetheless, so after this Saturday will not be completely clueless just semi-clueless.

Let the Chasing Begin

It is official JTW is now walking. I for one cannot believe that the time is already upon us. JTW has been taking steps and everything for the couple weeks. It was yesterday that she hit her walking milestone. It made me so proud and scared at the same time.

Proud, because I was able to see another one of her milestones. I gave me a sense of accomplishment that my daughter is developing normally...well as normal as one can be with me being her father.
Scared? Yeah that is correct scared now, we get to chase her down from where JTW is NOT suppose to be into like the dog food container and such.

Regardless of how I feel the first year of dad in training is almost up. It sure has been quite an adventure considering that I had NO clue what i was doing raising a little one 11 month ago. This was a craziest and unforgettable on the job training that I have ever experienced.


It is Officially Spring

It has been a joke of ours(my wife and I) that it is not officially spring until she gets her first sunburn of the year. So guess, what happened on Sunday(Mother's Day) of all days. We were working outside trying to get the garden ready and get some of the lawn decorations out for the 4-5 months that it is actually nice outside.

Speaking of the garden my wife and I are not the biggest fans of weeding . So we are thinking of teaching JTW how to weed. I think that we still a while until she knows the difference between a weed and bean sprout.

I guess that it looks like we will not be planting until Sunday or Monday at the earliest considering that it is suppose to rain here all week. JTW first garden planting will be continued.
