Happy 1st Birthday, Luca!

We were busy celebrating all weekend, but I wanted to stop in and wish my favorite little dude a happiest of first birthdays. 

On Thursday—his actual birthday—I took the day off from work. We started out by surprising him with a bunch of balloons. I didn't think he'd actually understand what was going on, and I still don't know that he totally did, but he loved those balloons. And he smiled anytime he saw them for the rest of the day. 

After breakfast we picked up my cousin and went to storytime at a local library. I know I've said it before, but I wish they did these on the weekends too. 

The three of us went to brunch at Cooked and Co—it's been open a few years already but if you're local and haven't been, definitely go. The unfortunately named "I'm on a diet wrap" is awesome. (As are the Nutella banana muffins.) 

We had to run a few errands before coming home and ordering pizza. Actually, another local to-try: Il Forno, which opened a couple months ago in White Plains. They don't have a website it seems, but their pizza was so good and, since it's basically a market, they have tons of Italian stuff like (my favorite) Mulino Bianco cookies. 

Our parents and siblings came over for cake and to open a few presents. We ended up just getting a Carvel ice cream cake because, I mean, #birthdaytraditions, but I had no idea that the blue icing literally stains. Luca went to town and got it on his hands and then all over his face (that might have been my fault), but I had to scrub it all off. Oh well, it was totally worth it. 

We have a few more festivities planned and, as you can imagine, I have so much to say about this first year of motherhood. More on that later.
