Greg is Growin'

Happy Birthday Greg! I can hardly believe our little guy is a year old already! He is so much fun right now.

Here is the last of the tiger photos:

Just to compare, this is the first one that we took, when he was 2 months old. (We were in the US and the tiger was in PNG at one month, so no photo):

We celebrated his birthday a bit early before my mom left. Originally mom planned to be here for his birthday, but then my brother and sister-in-law announced that they were expecting their third child in mid-July. Mom wanted to make sure that she didn’t miss that, and since Jess has the tendency to have her babies early, Mom arrived back in Colorado the evening of July 5. It’s a good thing too, since she got a call at 4am on the morning of the 6th saying that the baby was coming! Poor mom, jetlagged and with only a few hours of sleep under her belt, had arrived home just in time to greet Greg’s new cousin Rylan. I’m super excited that Greg will have a cousin just a year younger than him.

Greg got this awesome Carhartt jacket from Grandma and Grandpa Frey. He needs a little time to grow into it…

Grandma Bordewyk brought Rody with her – an inflatable bouncy horse. Here dad is showing Greg how it works.

Dad, you’re so embarrassing!

This is the first ride on Rody – and the only one so far. A few seconds after this photo was taken, Greg got “thrown.” He has since carefully avoided the green horse. He hasn’t yet learned that you need to get right back in the saddle! We’ll give it a little time.

Mom helped me to make this train cake for Greg. This is a photo when it was freshly made and not leaning yet.

As the cake settled, we were really afraid the engine would fall over. Luckily it make it to the table in one piece. Greg didn’t hesitate at all when we sat him near it. He went straight for the Skittles!


And here are just a few more shots of Greg looking all grown-up (sorry, no smiles today):
