10 months old!!

I can't believe my baby is 10 months old today!! In only 2 months, my baby will be 1 yr old. My nephews will be so excited b/c they hate that his age is only in months. They told me to let them know when he is no longer "Zero years old"!! LOL! Well it's coming soon boys!

We are still looking around and preparing ideas for J's birthday party. We plan to decorate my mom's house like Elmo's World...Complete with toddler like drawings, colorful balloons, crayons, and Dorothy the goldfish! We will also have goldfish bowls filled with colorful goldfish crackers and one will be used for a punch bowl. My sister is going to order an Elmo cake and I will have to have J's smash cake made by Whole Foods so that he can enjoy his cake without awful side effects. I am going to have some coloring books made with Elmo talking about J's birthday party and each child (there will be SEVERAL) will get a book and a pack of crayons. Also, we will set up a special call directly from Sesame Street, and Elmo will sing Happy Birthday to J. Yeah, I know what you are saying....All that for a 1 yr old?!?! LOL, I agree! But you wouldn't believe how much he loves Elmo. If he even hears Elmos voice he giggles! Sure he won't remember, but the look on his face will be priceless!

We did run into a minor problem though...We found a place that rents out an Elmo costume, but we need someone who can play Elmo. Hmmmmmm....Daddy and I brainstormed and couldn't come up with anyone. My dad has no idea who Elmo brother would REFUSE to talk in a baby voice like Elmo does...My cousins are all "too cool" to do it. I said that I would do it b/c I know exactly what songs J loves and I would definitely put a smile on his face, but Daddy doesn't want me to. He says I have to be in the pictures of J with Elmo. So that's out. So my mom is going to ask their 13 yr old neighbor. She is really god with kids and I'm sure she would love to dress up and act silly for the kids. If she agrees we will rent the costume and I will send her all of J's DVDs and make her study them until Dec 1!!! HAHAHA! Just kidding! She already knows how to sing the Elmo song to J and make him laugh. She will do an awesome job :)

Here's a clip of J laughing at Elmo!

He's such a sweetie.

It's too bad we can't be in Florida around the time of the party...Rob is totally spot-on with doing the impression of Elmo's voice. And he would absolutely dress up in the costume...he's such a goof!

I can't wait to see the pics of the party. I know Jayden is going to love looking at them when he's older!
