We brought little Sammy along and he was such a champ! :) Obviously he was the youngest party-goer but he entertained himself by looking at people and staring at the ceiling that happened to be filled with holes.
One thing I like about Germany is that usually when one is invited to a party, one contributes some finger food or dessert. Hence when a party has more than 120 attendees, one is treated to such a wide array of home-cooked goodness that one round is not enough to satisfy one's palate!
Going to her party made me think of how I wanted to welcome the next decade myself. And just when I was trying to churn up some ideas, I thought "Wait a minute, isn't Sammy gonna turn 1 before my birthday???"
Oh man, it's somehow so weird thinking of celebrating my little man's birthday cos one year ago he wasn't even born and now I can't imagine my life without him! :-)
