Today Paolo turned one year old. It is really impossible to believe that my tiny baby is nearing toddlerhood.

We celebrated his birthday with a big festa italiana on Saturday. I rented a pavilion in a local park, adorned it with Italian-style garb, and served up Italian fare to our 50 or so guests   It was a warm, gorgeous autumn day.  Here are a few action shots:

And here we are helping Paolo blow out his birthday candle tonight at our little family celebration:

    Che bel posto, pieno di natura e di colori! Complimenti !
    E’ commovente pensare a quanta attenzione e quanto amore circondano il piccolo Paolo!!
    Siamo felici per tutti voi ed anche noi (anche se così lontani!) abbiamo partecipato alla vostra gioia!
    Abbracci e baci a tutti
