Birthday Party


All Dressed up and Ready to Party!

Gorilla Shot

Yep. We went all out and got him a little suit for his special day. If you notice, the little tie is floating around his neck and the top button of his shirt is undone. Also notice the tears drying on his face. I bet I don’t even need to tell you that story! The rest of his pics are behind the cut. Warning! Image intensive. We are posting for a host of photo-hungry relatives in Moscow.

Lil' Gentleman
Naturally, Tyoma has the same love of ties as his Papa.

Presents 1
“What! All these presents for me!”

Presents 2
“Oh, my! I couldn’t! It’s simply too much!”

Birthday Cakes
Our twin cakes. The little one is for Tyoma to demolish.

So Adorable...
Waiting for the cake, he takes off his party hat for the twentieth time.

Birthday Cake 1
Intrigued by the candle.

Birthday Cake 2
The candle is extinguished.

Tyoma and Mama
I’m showing him that he can eat the cake.

Birthday Cake 3
“Wow! This is delicious!!!

Birthday Cake 4
Heavens! He ate the whole thing!

Birthday Cake 5
And now he’s eating the decorative balloons.

Tyoma and Mama 2

We had no idea how gluey icing could be until we tried to clean up Tyoma. I contemplated using Orange Blast, but Ivory, warm water and patience worked fine. Opening presents on and off took up most of the afternoon (there were three). Tyoma had a tiny sip of grape juice while we toasted with champagne, since he clearly didn’t have enough sugar with his cake.
We do have more photos, but I’m a bit to exhausted to post the rest.
