Rhys is one!

My Rhys is now one. I know he won’t remember anything, but a party was in  order, esp because Ella’s had been asking me all week to go to festa do Rhys (and now asks me about her own party).

We had balloons and cake and lots of Brazilian treats.

Rhys can almost walk, he babbles constantly, opens all drawers and cabinets and takes everything out, can steer the play shopping carts really well and sucks his thumb when you give him his doggy lovey.
