Check out this adorable toddler!

He enjoys being held upside down, and his dad is happy to oblige!

I'm just a wee bit biased, as he is our great nephew. He's 19 months old and a real sweetheart.

He was playing with his Grandpa's phone. Why? Because he wanted to, of course!

Now don't, for even a second, think he's spoiled...

He was trying to bite my toes in this shot.

Okay, maybe a little. But he's the first baby in the family since Alex, and our dear precious Alex just turned 18. In fact, we were all together Saturday night to celebrate Alex's birthday.

Apparently the smoke from the candles showed up in the picture. Wow, I have a LOT to learn about photography!

There's a reason that there's only one gift bag. Alex is a self-admitted shopaholic and when asked what he would like for his birthday, simply said....MONEY! The basket held his cards with the "cash donations" as he refers to them.

So that's how we spent our Saturday night. Of course there was also a football game. But we really don't need to talk about that, sigh.

(Our Buckeyes lost, and that's all I'm gonna say.)

My kids aren't even close to being teenagers yet and they are already asking for money instead of gifts! Looks like he had a very Happy Birthday and what a fun evening for your family to spend together.

But our poor Bucks? That was hard to watch. :(

He doesn't look spoiled at all!

Happy birthday to Alex!

Wow 18! Was it hard to have your baby turn 18?
It looks like the guys in your family are spoiled for sure!
