One year old

Today our little Austin is one! I can't believe it's been a year. At times, I didn't think I would make it to this point. But here we are, and I feel extremely blessed to have been given this little boy. He is such a sweetheart, always smiling and melting my heart. He loves to play with balls, trucks, cars, anything he can push or throw. He loves to say bye bye, mama, amen, dada, lily (our dog). He is learning to walk, still kind of scared, but he does pretty good. He has the most infectious laugh, and you can't help but laugh when you hear him. I am so grateful for him, and even though he came a little earlier than we had anticipated having another child, I can not be more happy and grateful that he's in our family! We love you Austin! Happy 1st birthday!!
p.s. more pictures to come on Saturday after his birthday party!! :)

Our little "2" year old

Today Addison turned 2. I can hardly believe how fast time has flown. She had a great day. We had some family and close friends over for cake and ice cream tonight. She also shares her birthday with Matt's mom so we had cake for her too. Her shirt says "birthday girl" and the skirt she got from Aunt Amy!!

Aunt Afton crocheted this adorable hat and scarf for her. Cousins Andie and Aly are helping her model them.

Singing Happy birthday. She loved it when we all sang to her and she even blew her candles out all by herself!!!

She really enjoyed her birthday cake and ate the whole piece.

Matt and I got Addison the cutest table. One side is for sand and water and they you put the cover on and it's a picnic table. She absolutely loves it. She loves playing with sand so I foresee lots of time with this table. We do however have to leave the water part out, otherwise she will be putting all the sand into the water.

The cute cake we got for her. She loves Minnie Mouse.

Addison brings so much laughter and joy into my life. She makes me laugh constantly. She loves watching Barney and has started singing "I love you, you love me we're a happy samily." HA.. She loves to dance and sing, she loves playing with Austin, "bubba", she loves to play outside. This girl is so determined in everything she does. The other day she wanted something in her brothers crib, I told her she couldn't have it and went to do something else, a few minutes later I heard her calling for me. She had climbed into the crib and back out to get what she wanted. When she wants something she is sure to get it. She is very bossy to her little brother, which I guess is part of being a girl!! :) I love this girl so much and am very excited to see what is to come with this wild one!! Happy 2nd birthday Addison!!
