Baby Patrick’s 1st Birthday

I can’t believe a year has rolled around since that long day in the delivery room. There is no escape from “The March of Time”. Baby Pat’s 1st birthday has come.

#Baby Pat was almost a month premature and weighed a scant 5 lbs. 3 oz. But, like Frankie, he had some decent hair.

At three-months old, he had his first Christmas. I could not resist making a “Tiny Tim” reference.

We held off the Baptism. I didn’t want to subject family to holiday rates, and the possibility of a blizzard preventing an airport pick up. So, we waited until March, but then the idea of Baptizing Baby Pat on St. Patrick’s Day took root.

Just before Springtime, His first tooth sprouted. Giving new meaning to “Spring Hath Sprung” 🙂

He had a fun summer of playgrounds, and BBQ outings. His interaction with toys has progressed as it should.

Baby Pat was presented with the traditional “smash cake”, and that’s exactly what he did to it.

Now we’re getting ready for the Holiday Season.  Although he just turned one, this will be his second Thanksgiving and Christmas.
