My friends Cherrye and Peppe had a baby last year in December. And a lot of people think this little guy is the cutest baby ever. I think he’s pretty cute too.
I was lucky enough to get to meet him when he was only about 6 weeks old. And then again when I was in Italy during the summer – he was an awesome 6 month old. Cherrye came to town around August, so I got to see him at 8 months too.
And most recently, baby Max celebrated his 1 year birthday in the USA! I was lucky enough to be able to attend his party (and take almost 200 pictures…oops!).
Here is the proud mama, papa and baby boy!
This Dr. Seuss party was so cool. Cherrye planned everything down to the last detail. (Including that balloon wreath on the door!)
Guests enjoyed Roast Beast and Ham I Am sandwiches, Green Eggs, and many other Seussical dishes.
Everyone in attendance wrote happy wishes for the birthday boy inside the book. Party favors were travel chalkboards that all the kids loved!
Of course, the birthday boy had his very own birthday hat. Doesn’t he look so handsome?! (We’ll take bets on both how long it took to put the hat on AND how long it stayed on. Ready, go!)
The birthday boy really loved opening presents.
And attempting to eat the paper.
And at the end asking for more.
He had his own cake.
But, he’s very good at sharing.
And he’s very good at looking cute, even with frosting and cake all over his face.
He’s also VERY good at finishing everything on his plate. Almost.
I am very lucky to be friends with Cherrye and Peppe. And of course the birthday boy.
Happy 1st birthday Max!
