andre's birthday is january 13th. so close to christmas, and we never want him to feel left out or forgotten. we happened to go to a mexican restaurant with friends the weekend before his birthday. and you know what they do at mexican restaurants when it's your birthday, don't you?
oh, this kid. it was fun to surprise him with that. he just kind of sat there. not really reacting much at all. he's so funny. they walked away, he grabbed his spoon, and started eating his ice cream.
also, side note... i got the idea from a friend of mine when i saw her kiddo had a plate with his face on it. for the kids birthday's one year, i got them one, too. and we call it their birthday plates. they eat on them often, but always on their birthdays.
andre ended up staying home the next day with the flu. major bummer. he got sick just once and then was fine. but not a great way to end your birthday week.
the food was good. the company was great. we had both of our families over at the same time. all of my kids said they liked that. and it was nice to have the room to do it. :)
we sure do love him a lot. he's a wild mix of a boy. and the perfect one for our family. and he won't let me call him 'dre'. no matter how many times i ask.
