We feel super lucky to have gotten to see some of our family for Dan’s nephew’s first birthday. It seems like just yesterday that he was born, but boy has he grown since we saw him last Christmas. While Dan’s sister and her husband got a little time away at a cabin, we watched our nephew with Dan’s parents. It was great practice–changing diapers, giving him his bottle, soothing him while teething. It was really nice to take care of our nephew while getting advice from Dan’s parents.
The last night, Mary came back and we celebrated Bodhi’s first birthday. We had Dan’s childhood birthday treat: buster bars (ice cream, crushed Oreos, and chocolate fudge–it is very, very good) and opened gifts. It seemed that Bodhi really liked the stuffed dinosaur we gave him. Hopefully, soon we will be celebrating birthdays and holidays with our own baby. We are so excited!
