So Stephen and I realized we haven’t seen our camera since the Father/Son Campout. What does that mean? #1 – I need a new camera. #2 – these pictures are definitely NOT the best quality but they are all I have and they are still memories. #3 I didn’t get any pictures from Halloween Night. Boo. But, they still looked great in their costumes! Click on the images to make larger. 🙂

Lil’g got to experience his first trip to the zoo…and Sp and Ev haven’t been in 2 or 3 years! Crazy, I know! It was the perfect weather too! What was pretty interesting to me is that a fair amount of animals seemed to be interested in us too. They came up and examined us…we blamed Lil’g…said he smelled just like them! 🙂 Just teasin! Enjoy the pics!

Laid Back Birthday

It’s true…I’m not doing much for Lil’g’s birthday. Why? Because I’m not. He loves the water so we will be spending the day (or maybe half of a day!) with family at a waterpark. EASY PEASY! We won’t be doing the traditional 1st cake (maybe) because the park will not allow outside food inside. So I’ll have to decide if I make brownies later and let him get dirty (honestly he already eats all the other “stuff” including snack foods so it’s not a huge milestone for him). We did, however, end his birthday with a few presents.

Grams and Papa sent him a pool for the porch. He was fascinated with it before it even had water in it! The older kids loved it too! They changed around the cups and wheel a few times while Lil’g got in and out and in and out and in and out of it. (He is also having a blast with the box the pool came in!)

From Daddy, Mommy, Spencer and Evie we got him foam building blocks. He is having a blast knocking over whatever creations Evie and Spencer build!

I’ve asked our family to not get him any more clothes (except PJs) or toys (although bath or water toys would work)…I just got through de-junking our house…including the kids’ stuff 3 times (their clothes 4 times!!!) and we do NOT need any more! I know a few things that Grandma and Grandpa are planning and I know he will have a blast with those…but I’ll post pictures when we can see them again! (Cancer/Chemo and live vaccines do not go together well! We can’t let Lil’g near Grandma and Grandpa for 4 weeks! 🙁 FOUR WEEKS! That’s SO long! Makes me sad!)

More pictures to come! How I love my birthday boy!

What a fun, happy little guy we have! Before he was born people commented on how they feel drawn to him or felt they had a special connection to him (and I loved it!). He is still quite shy but his gap-toothed grin will sure make anyone smile!  I love my baby!!!

One Year Stats:

Height: 31 inches (80%)    Weight: 22.8 lbs (65%)     Head:  47 cm (75%)
