Ethan’s FIRST birthday party!

We had such a great time celebrating Ethan’s first birthday with family and friends.  He loved his smash cake and even shared with those that wanted a bite.  Beware of picture overload!image image image imageimage imageimageimageimageimageimage imageimageimageimageThe camera was hit or miss with all the fun we had and the lighting from room to room.  Thank you to all our friends and family that came over to help celebrate this little boy! A special thank you to my sister and mom for helping me make, cut, sew, hang and decorate for the party!

Ethan is ONE!

My boy is ONE! Are you kidding me? Sweet boy! We love you so very much. You are all over the place these days.  You started walking around 11 months and have been running ever since.  You still have just two teeth but it’s not holding you back from eating, you’re a good eater. 

We took you to get your first haircut on your birthday and you did great.  The blow dryer scared you once but other than that, you sat perfectly still while Mrs. Kelly trimmed everything up.  I think it is the cutest little style for you.  You had a cupcake after dinner but someone those two events are the only things I captured on your special day. image image image

Kendall is THREE!

On January 4, I put my little two year old to bed, behind her crate paper decorated door (that she hadn’t yet seen). And on January 5, I woke up a sassy, energetic, sweet, smart beautiful THREE year old.  Crazy, crazy how time flies, I tell ya.  She actually woke up in the middle of the night and thankfully didn’t get scared by the hanging streamers.  It was cute to witness her excitement, in realizing it was just for her.  She took cupcakes to school and we had a party for all of our family and friends to help celebrate on . image Her birthday party was at Monkey Joe’s (an indoor jump castle spot) by her very own request.  She loves Monkey Joe and will dart after him anytime we are there.  And bouncing…she would do it all day if you let her.  She had a blast!  Her cake was a castle cake, at her request as well.  Thank you to all of our family and friends for helping to celebrate our incredible girl!imageIt is bittersweet to know how fast time can fly by, truly in the blink of an eye! Happy third birthday to our baby girl! We love you so very much!  image image

Nine months old

My baby boy! Three months until you’re ONE! What? It seems like your first year flew by faster than your sister’s.  I am soaking up every bit of baby that I can.  You are crawling like a champ and have one tooth coming in, on the bottom.  You have dealt well with teething, so far and your tooth popped up without any troubles.  I’m thankful for that and hope it continues.  You are letting go of things when you are standing and continue to get braver and stand longer all the time. 

Kendall makes you laugh uncontrollably and so easily.  I absolutely love watching you two play.  Your sister already calls you her best friend and it melts my heart.  She looks after you and always wants to “make sure Ethan doesn’t cry, okay mom?” We will always watch out for you, buddy.  You have started saying da da da lately and are really good at making the ga sound.  So far, no mama but I’m working on it.


I love you, my boy! I love snuggling with you, kissing your little cheeks. I love that you smile when you see me and come crawling so fast. I love that you’re a mommy’s boy right now.  I love your laugh and your smile.  I love you (and your sister) to the moon and back!
