Happy 8th Birthday!

I am waaaay behind on blogging but before Beckett turns three next week I wanted to be sure I posted pictures of Thatcher's 8th birthday two weeks ago. Can my baby really be eight?

We had his party at the Lego store as Star Wars Legos are our new passion! The store is BRIGHT yellow so the lighting on most of the pictures isn't too great. :( One of the ways that Thatcher's autism affects him is that it is *really* hard to get him to look at a camera. The whole eye contact thing really eats our lunch here. About half the pictures we have of this sweet boy are of him looking off somewhere. But don't you just love the gaps in that grin?! ;)

Getting ready to build the set he picked: The Clone Walker Battle Pack!

I tell him that even though his is a big eight year old, he will always be my baby! :)

Getting ready for everyone to sing "Happy Birthday!" and clutching the Clone Walker he just built. That toy was in his hands for the next week non-stop.

Opening presents!

The Lego cake! This one was really fun to make.

Happy Birthday Thatcher! You guys are so lucky to have a Lego store there! And oh my, you MADE that cake??!! Please share how! I tried to make a Lego for Austin's birthday in March and it was a disaster.

That is such a great pic of you and Thatcher! Looks like you had so much fun! I can't even tell that your cake isn't the real toy! Amazing!

Happy Birthday! They grow SSSOOOO fast! Looks and Sounds like you had a wonderful celebration! We play with tons of legos and "cake making" here too! Great job! DId you use fondant, buttercream or make the legos from candy? It looks fabulous!

Your 8yo looksa lot like my almost 8yo, gap-toothed boy - too big to be a little kid anymore, huh? Wow - I wish we had a Lego store cuz Jason would pick that for sure! It looks like fun!
Seriously though - you have to give the secret to the cake. I've seen how nice your others have been, but this one is so different. Did you use fondant or what?
Happy birthday to your 1st 'baby'!
