Down .2. I'll take it. I haven't made the best food choices this weekend so I'm happy I didn't go up! Jake's tot birthday party was yesterday. I guess from all the running around and last minute cleaning, I burned off the bad stuff.
We had 6 toddlers and 1 7 year old. I had gotten a beach ball sprinkler but the tots except 1 or 2 weren't into it. They were all about the snacks. Too funny. They did play with Jake's toys until everyone arrived so I hope they had fun. It was fun seeing all the moms again (most were in my stroller group when I first had Jake). One of them is 8 months pregnant! I was so surprised. I last saw her in April and she looked like she had gained a little weight but not enough to register as her being pregnant. She thought I knew and I said no. It is all baby too. If you looked at her from the back you wouldn't guess she was pregnant. Must be nice. When I was pregnant with Jake you could definitely tell! (Of course, I didn't exercise much and ate pretty much what I felt like so that didn't help either.)
Jake's actual birthday is July 20th but dh is to be out of town that day. I have the day off from work as Jake's daycare is closed that day so maybe we will go to the zoo or do something special together.
I didn't think Jake would blow out the candles as he hasn't done much of that, but he did it! It was so cute. The "cake" was 12 cupcakes arranged in the number 2. Cupcakes work as it is the perfect size and not too many leftovers! The snacks were juice boxes, stick pretzels and goldfish. I knew the other kids would drink the juice boxes, but Jake usually doesn't touch them. Well, he drank his two boxes plus someone else's. Oh well. I couldn't keep my eye on him constantly. DH was standing around chatting while I was constantly running around. I had him take a picture of the "cake" but he was standing too far away so you can't see the arrangement. Oh well. I think it was a success. The kids looked like they were having a grand time and the moms were chatting it up. No rain.
