Our little Lucy just turned one, so here are some things I know about one-year-olds. . .
One-year-olds love balloons.
. . . and cousins and friends and Great Grandmas. . .. . . and they love presents and wrapping paper and ribbon . . . and birthday cards . . .
One-year-olds DO NOT like candles . . .
. . . so they may seem dubious at first . . .. . . but they soon realize they like cupcakes . . .. . . a lot . . .
. . . which is good 'cause there are a lot of them . . .. . . 'cause one-year-olds' moms think a birthday party is a really good excuse to stock up on things they themselves like, like cupcakes and izze soda . . . . . . oh, and one-year-olds definitely love their dads . . .
. . . even if they're going through a mommy phase . . .
