One Year, Take Two
Look Who's Walking

The Obligatory

IMG_3656 

Ezra, being his typical charming self, voicing his displeasure over being deposited in his high chair when he was right in the middle of disconnecting the refrigerator's water hook-up, and also over his hand-me-down 1st Birthday Boy bib, like SORRY, Novelty Bib Establishment, I also reused a Baby's First Christmas bib and there's nothing you can do about it.

But wait! What's this?

IMG_3664 

I am...curious. Strangely...drawn to it.

IMG_3666

Though also a little baffled by it.

 IMG_3667

Aha! Food! I like food.

IMG_3668

Yep. I do like...

Happy birthday, Little Ez!

Michelle

So cute! At one point he looks like he's stoned out of his gourd on the goodness.

Nancy

Brilliant

rebecca

I just laughed until I started coughing.

Della

I am chuckling over here at how awesomely textbook that was. Also, how cute it was. There is something irresistable about the whole TRY? OMG... SNARF! sequence with toddlers in general, but Ezra takes it to a whole new level.

I'm going to point to this post as a significant chunk of my defense in the kidnapping trial, to illustrate that you totally asked for it.

Missie

Quite possibly, the Best Baby Eating Post Evar!

MissAndra

BAAAAAHAHAHAAA! Someone finally got to try the chocolate, I see. Happy birthday handsome squishy little man. Love- Some Stranger Lady From The Internet Who Hearts Your Mama's Blog

Maureen

I KNEW there had to be "angry baby" photos at the end. At least, I was hoping for some. To prove that my kid isn't the only one who turns into Evil Dictator Child when he finishes dessert.

LbL

HAHAHAHAHAHA, OMG that was hilarious. Your captions always kill me!

cris

Bravo! Bravo! More! More!

RAGE against the MINIVAN

Hey, at least you found the hand-me-down novelty bib for the right day. My daughter has been wearing a Thanksgiving bib all summer, and of course I probably won't be able to find it come Turkey Day, so then I will probably have to put her in the Valentine's one or some such.

Deanna

I'm pretty sure that's still how I look when I eat chocolate. Bib and all.

LL

Love it!! And I loved the video from yesterday - I've made a mental note to get some video before I have our next baby, we didn't do that last time.

And Happy Birthday Ezra!!

Christina

At least he used his bib nicely to wipe his hands off for you!

Holy 1st birthday Batman! Time flies by, eh?!

Sprite's Keeper

Encore! Encore! Is that seriously the first time he's tried cake? You may have an addict now!

nonsoccermom

Tee hee! What a cutie!! Hope he had a good birthday.

BB

Quick! Get another cupcake!

samantha jo campen

Your captions are the best, and E is all sorts of awesome.

Marianne

Awesome! Happy birthday, little man!

Sara

ha! love this sequence~ is hilarious!

another Amy

I think that's the funniest first birthday cake rundown I've ever seen. So then what? Meltdown? Tantrum? Appeased with more cake?

sara

It's my birthday today; unfortunately, shoving cupcakes into your mouth is much, much less adorable when you're twenty-three than when you are Ezra. But that won't stop me.

Kathleen

Baby's first chocolate? Now that is a birthday present!! Happy birthday, Ezra!

Shelly

hahahahahahaha I can't wait to be a mom!!!! Moments like this....priceless.

liz

Oh! Oh! Laughing and laughing! What a great monument to the First Birthday Cupcake.

sheilah

You can just read his mind, "what is this deliciousness and WHY HAVE YOU KEPT IT FROM ME FOR SO LONG, woman!!!"

Mississippianna

Hiiiiiilarious! I need that. Thank you!

Liz

Happy Birthday, Ez! You are the cutest almost-not-a-baby-anymore in the world. Except for mine, who are girls, so it doesn't count that I said that about somebody else's kid.

Also - Amy, you crack me the hell up. Now - do the same post only with you drinking wine. Entertainment Gold, I tell you!

Olivia

So friggin cute! Happy birthday Ezra!

My 6 month old is just starting to eat solids, and the expressions she makes are priceless.

Lauren

LOL I love your captions - You are hilarious! And your little model boy there helps too i guess ;-)

Peggy

Love this - and note the pristine, clean bib in the first pic compared to the final state of the bib in the last pic - priceless!

Mrs. Kennedy

Wait, weren't you just pregnant? And it's eating CUPCAKES ALREADY?

Mary

Oh my gosh! Laughing so hard I'm crying right at my desk! HYSTERICAL! My baby boy turned one on the 3rd and I couldn't get him to touch his cake!

haitian american family of three

That was pretty cute-I love the OMG OMG moment because its so true, once they taste that chocolate its like finding nirvana-just wait until he tries bacon.

Notesfromthegrove

Hahahahaha! I loved this. Bravo!

Brandi

Precious! And now I want cake. To the grocery store!

Karen

I STILL do that and my first birthday was, oh, a few years back.

Heather

So cute! I love the photos, and I love his hair. Have you cut it yet? It is growing out perfectly!

Starbuck

Give that boy another cupcake!! After all, you only have a first birthday once.

Belle

Baaaahahahhah!! "Dude. You have no idea." is my favorite. Can I have a cupcake? And an Ezra?

Jennifer

He's about to yell, "Give me another." Where there sparks while he was eating that cupcake!?!?

Karen

Holy crap, that was the funniest thing since...well one of your other recent posts, I guess....but awesome. Thank you!
Happy Birthday Ez!

Caroline

Quick, give him another cupcake!

lisa

Wow, I'm totally impressed that you can lay your hands on the reused First Birthday Bib. Like, are you some kind of organizational genius? I mean really.

Happy Birthday!

Parsing Nonsense

These are awesome. It strongly brings to mind the famous video of Ezra roaring like a beast. So glad he liked his cupcake!

Kara

OMG, I'M DYING. That was hilarious.

MommiePie

So how many more cupcakes did you give him? I love the cupcake coma picture! He's absolutely freaking adorable! Happy, happy birthday to the Mighty, Mighty Ezra!

Liz

Ha ha! So funny and cute.

Andrea

I hope you have him another cupcake, for if you didn't you most certainly are a mean and cruel purveyor of doom and sadness.

Long live the mighty Ez! Happy birthday, lil dude!

Andrea

And once again, the typo is my downfall! *sigh*

Katie

He is SOOOO precious!!!! And I love the photo essay... When mine turned one he couldn't have cared less about the cake. Seriously. EVERY picture we have of him "eating" cake at his 1st birthday he is staring at it with the disdain one usually exhibits when approached with cleaning the toilet. It was hilarious.

Kendra

That was hysterical. And the "Hulk" bit totally got me! I swear, just yesterday I was sighing as you described his enthusiasm for solids. I see that hasn't abated! Happy birthday, big guy!

Meegan

LOVE the photo progression, along with the commentary. Perfection.

Cristin

Will you please have another one?
Love it. You are blessed!

Heather

Could not have laughed harder. I can only hope that Diva's birthday pics have such a great narrative quality. Ezra is so freaking expressive it kills me.

r

OMGOMGOMG ... TOO MUCH CUTE.

happy bd

OMGOMGOMG RRRAAAWWRRRHHHH

just beth

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That was a MUCH needed guffaw, THANK YOU. So hysterical.

xo

b.

christine

SO glad to see my little 'angel' isn't the only child out there who gets angry when her food is gone :o).

Nel

Best picture post ever!!!

You nailed every single caption!

Marie

Speaking of OMG, that sequence was hilarious! I anticipate something similar in a few months when my baby turns one, but she's not as great an eater as Ez. I'll bet cake will win her over, though.

maria

K, that last pic totally made me think of the vid of Ezra you posted a bit back, "RAWR Where is my melon, woman!!!" Super cute!!

meg...ct

so adorable...Nothing like a baby's first cupcake. Mine always looked at me like, "Dude, where you been hiding these??"
Happy Birthday, little pumpkin!

Kristin

Heheheehehehe

Natballs

hahahahahah! Was that his first cupcake?

Loren

Comic genius. Man, that is one cute one year old!!

Sharon

Hilarious! Adorable!
(Was it a real cupcake? Or some sort of healthy cupcake? I am curious, because my baby's first birthday is in a couple of weeks and I can't decide- real sugared-up cupcake or a healthy version.)

Deanna

I looked just like that this morning after I ate my toast smeared with Nutella. (It was actually a little embarrassing - but delicious!)

Susan

Bwahahahahahaha... so preshus!

I also want to know if you found some brilliant "healthy" cupcake recipe, and will you share it with us, pretty please (unless it was made in the microwave, in which case I'll just go the Duncan Hines route...)?

Susan

Oh, and the only novelty bib we have been gifted was Baby's 1st Easter, 'cuz, ya know, nothing commemmorates the Risen Lord like terrycloth bunnies covered in spit up.

Amalah

It was indeed a "real" non-healthy cupcake. But made from scratch, with "real" ingredients so no hydrogenated oils or red 40 or yellow 5 or HFCS. (Seriously, I for one minute considered Duncan Hines until I looked at the raised-in-a-lab ingredient list.) These were basic vanilla cupcakes and I tossed in some smashed-up organic chocolate cookie bits. I am not scared of sugar and butter and chocolate -- it's that other stuff that I absolutely hate. Goddamn hippie.

If you do want a mix without artificial/hydrogenated crap, Whole Foods sells mixes (cake and frosting) by Naturally Nora. They're actually pretty good.

Zak

Oh god, I can't stand them growing up.

But I'm glad to be a witness.

Happy Birthday to your little baby!

Sensibly Sassy

Your captions were so perfect!

Jen L.

Made. My. Day. Happy bday, Ezra!

ginny

GENIUS! Love it!

Cyn

OMG. OMG.
Amy, this is CLASSIC! I must admit I envy your kids, who will have this blog to look back on as they grow up. And also you, for being able to embarrass the hell out of them with it.
You ROCK. Happy Birthday mighty Ez!

cate

haha, that was so great. i felt like i was there! happy birthday again, ez!

Lucy's mom

I just spent an hour flipping back through posts I've missed and I have to tell you that you are truly hilarious (and your boys are truly adorable). I doubt that I fall into your standard demographic and I bet there are many people like me that don't who read your blog. Thank you for making me laugh on a regular basis, you really are a treasure.

Miss Britt

The instant I saw the cupcake I was thinking "oh, that kid will be all over that".

How sad is that? LOL

Joanne

Happy Birthday! Happy Ezraversary! I am not a wild fan of babies with food, even my own, but that was hysterical and perfect.

AmazingGreis

Happy Birthday Ezra!

Hope it was a great day for all!!

kellyannecat

That made my morning! Great stuff.

Shannon

Freaking cutest thing I have seen.

Pam

So great! Awesome memories.(And we had that bib! Party City, anyone?)

Amanda

Ohhh, Ezra. Oh, big, mighty Ez.

Amy, it's not even RIGHT how adorable your kids are.
