One is Fun.

It happened O. You turned one. I cried. One whole year gone. You still captivate me. You still have Daddy wrapped around your precious little finger. G still adores you. P still thinks you are her baby doll. And I imagine in the years to come, it will only continue to grow and our love for you only deepen. But today, I was a little sad as I realized the chapter of your first year came to an end. Quickly realizing however, this is a time to celebrate. Celebrate you. Celebrate all you have given our family. You have brought so much joy, light, excitement, laughter, smiles, and much of heaven with you. We just adore you O bear. Happy one year baby doll.

Seven Years Old

How did this happen?! Over night? It seems so. "I love you all the way up to astronauts and back" Gman! Seven reasons I love this little man: 1. Such a sweet friend- so thoughtful and always out to befriend someone in need 2. Great example to his younger sisters, they just adore him, so much excitement when he walks through the door after school. 3. His personality is to die for. He keeps our home rolling with laughter 4. That toothless smile can melt my heart in any situation. 5. He has the most tender heart. He is always worried about others and their feelings. 6. He has killer dance skills. This kid can bust the sweetest moves. 7. He is a rock. This little man has seen so much in his short life and always finds the good. He is loyal, he is unbelievable, he is strong. He is mine. Yes, I know #7 included like 5 reasons, but I can't help myself. I am a proud mom.

Favorite meal: Waffles, even more...waffles for dinner.

Not only was his party fun to decorate and set up, the boys were so entertaining. P worked the concession stand all night...or maybe she worked the boys. Which ever it was, she drove them crazy.

I didn't realize boy "cheesiness" starts so young. This is an awesome group of boys!

Swim & Dive

Pyps was quite the little fishy for her teacher, too bad she wont swim for us.

Way to go G, what a great summer of dive! You did amazingly well for your first year! Even took second place at your first dive meet! If watching your brothers dive meet in 114 degree weather isn't love, I don't know what is. You girls were troopers!
