The perfect shirt!

Lots of presents! Thank you everyone!


This is what happens when you try to avoid the look silly and I still get the picture.

We just want to thank everyone that came to the party! We loved having you here to help us celebrate Christian's 1st birthday! Thank you for all of the cute new outfits and fun new toys. We hope you had fun!

1st Birthday Party

We had Christian's 1st birthday party last night. We invited a few friends and family to come over for a barbeque. Christian had a lot of fun and loved all the new toys he got. I can't believe he is already one!

This is me, Christian and my friend, Lydia from work.

Christian loved his birthday cake!

Can't believe he ate the whole thing!

Too much cake...too many pictures!

Dave and I bought Christian this fun toy that he can walk behind. Oh my! It didn't take long to figure it out and now he just runs over whatever or whoever is in his way. He LOVES this toy! It is already helping him have more confidence to walk. Maybe we'll have a walking machine in the next few weeks...who knows.

Overall, I think the party was a success. Christian had a lot of fun and that was my main goal. The food was good, company was great and the weather held out for us. What more can you ask for?

Another Haircut

Another haircut for the boy who is almost 1! He seems to like it, but I'm not convinced yet. I think he looks better with longer hair, what do you think? Compare pictures from this post and the last one. I was just tired of washing food out of his matted hair all the time. So, for the sake of my sanity..short hair it is.

Play Time

I love to watch Christian play. He has so much fun babbling to himself and trying to accomplish new things. As his first birthday gets closer by the day (it's tomorrow already!) I was on the lookout for fun toys I could get him. The last month I have payed close attention to the things he chooses to play with. He goes straight for the fun stuff. He loves the dog and cat toys and daddy's wallet and a watering can. Who knew?? So, I still don't know what to buy, but I'm sure we'll figure something out. He doesn't pay much attention to toys but would rather play with the "stuff" laying around the house.

Nothing New

I haven't updated this blog in a while and I don't have any recent pictures to share. Life has been abnormally boring. We don't go anywhere fun or do anything exciting (or anything for that matter). We're lucky to make it outside for a quick walk. So anyway, I am sure life can't always be exciting, right? We are anxiously waiting for Christian's first birthday in a couple weeks. Stay tuned for pictures of the munchkins birthday bash! Hopefully we can start having some fun once it's not so hot outside.
