Happy Birthday Sawyer and Leila!

I took the day off to spend with the birthday boy. Tricia, Leila, Thea, Cassie, Sawyer and I had so much fun at the Children's Museum. I cannot wait to take him back again! It turned out to be just a perfect day all around.

Sawyer had so much fun in the grocery store I didn't think I would be able to convince him to move on! He finally did but with a little resistance. He actually walked over to the cart that was pulled out for him and pushed that baby in circle after circle through the grocery store.

I wish you all could have seen the puppet show Tricia and Leila put on. It was so entertaining Cassie and I were in tears with laughter.

Tricia: (The Giraffe) "What about you little boy? Is it your birthday? How old are you?"
Leila: (The Zebra) "Are you 1?" :pause: "Or maybe 2?"

The day before the big 1 year...

All day today I caught myself reflecting on this day one year ago. I can't stop doing that actually. "One year ago I was getting ready for my last doctor appointment before baby." "One year ago I was having the last nice dinner out with my husband before parenthood." "One year ago I was still wondering if it would be a boy or a girl." Tomorrow will be the same I am sure. Filled with wonder and memories...

I am using a personal day to spend the day playing with the birthday kiddos! We are going to the mall to have lunch and play at the children's museum. I really can't wait. More to come...

Birthday Bash!

Ah...a peaceful Saturday morning, checking out the view...He had no idea the house would fill with family friends, presents and cake only a few hours later!

Leila is such a good present opening assistant!

The maiden voyage of the daddy powered Radio Flyer!

Finally! He can have his cake and eat it too!


Hunt eggs? Hmmm...It's kinda cold for that, don't you think? Besides, I am sure Leila will share with me!
