My nephew, Jackson, is a Genius.  Here he is, reading from one of his favorite books, "What to Expect the First Year" by Heidi Murkoff.  "How do you like the book?," I asked him.  "Hi!," he answered, brightly, which I take to mean "It's a fascinating book and I highly recommend it."  And what's not to recommend?  It's loaded with useful tips and information on what to expect during baby's first year.  Jackson appeared to be leafing through a chapter on "Baby's First Birthday."  Murkoff advises readers to keep the celebration simple so as not to overwhelm the baby.  She specifically says, "Don't order a clown;  Don't have a band;  Don't have too much hoopla!"  Did we follow her advice?  Stay tuned for further details ...!

"Yo! Jack, tell the folks; no chocolate cake. Hard on the tummy and murder to get out of your hair and ears."

My neice was heavily into olives on her first birthday. I steered well clear of her nappy (diaper)

PS, Marty, you must be so proud of him, he's a right little geezer!
