Heathers 25th Birthday!

Well this past weekend we went out to celebrate my best friends birthday. We went for Sushi and drinks at My Martini, it was so good! Then we went for drinks after at Dukes. We had a great time. Its always nice to get out of the house and have some fun and remember what its like to stay out late and not worry about getting home and getting Max into bed. My parents kept him overnight for us so we could go out and have some fun! Oh boy did we! Heather and I have started a tradition where we get eachother a birthday cake every year. Our friend Heidi is so talented and makes some of the most beautiful and delicious cakes ever! So if you need a cake let me know, she is awesome! Here are some pics from this weekend and the cake! Enjoy!

Fun Time At the Park

Hey guys,

Well its been a few weeks since I posted a blog and Im a little behind on uploading my pics.
This is a pic of Max at the park a few weeks ago. He had such a great time! Our Friends, The Stones joined us and we had a great time! Max was such a big boy, he didnt want any help! He wanted to climb the stairs himself and go down the slide all by himself. He is growing up to be such a big boy so fast! We have been so lucky to have several beautiful days here lately so we have been taking advantage of them! We have been to the park several times, and gone to feed the duckies! Although he was more interested in the golden retriever that was swimming around in the pond looking for his stick. He kept saying "Hi Doggie!" He is saying so much lately. He can actually talk in sentences and make sense now! He loves to say "bless you mommy" every time I sneeze, its the cutest thing ever! Its amazing how much he remembers and learns everyday. I have started the party planning for his 2nd birthday party which will be April 25th! Its going to be so much fun! I can't believe how fast my baby is growing.
Just today he opened the front door and proceeded to let himself outside! Hes known how to open the front door and look out but hes never known how to unlock the glass door and open it to go outside, well that all changed today! So needless to say that Nick stopped at Lowe's on his way home from work and bought some locks to install on all our doors, so now he can't escape! I thought I had a little while before we had to worry about that, man was I wrong! He is such a monkey. Climbing on everything and getting into all kinds of stuff. Although this job is the toughest one I've ever had, no other job has been so rewarding and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! I am so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful family, I love my boys!

He's Almost 2!

really can't believe how fast the time goes. Everyone tells you that and you just think ya, sure, ok, whatever, but really it does fly by. It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant with him, and now he's going to be turning next month! I have started trying to think of ideas for his birthday party and get things planned but Im having a tough time making a decision on a theme. He loves Cars and Trucks and Tractors right now, so I'm thinking I may go with a Truck Theme. We are thinking of renting a big bounce house for him and his friends, that should be fun! Its amazing how much he has learned in the past few weeks. It seems like I only tell him something once and he remembers it! Man how I wish my brained worked that way still, LOL! I forget things that happened yesterday. He knows all his letters and can point them out to you, he has learned some of his numbers 1-10. He says Thank you when you give him something, and he always says "I love you" although it sounds more like "Wuv Yu" its so sweet. He tries to repeat anything you tell him, somethings sound really good and others not so much. He calls our dog Wrinkles, "tenkles". He knows alot of his animal sounds and can recognize most of them. Im just so proud of him and what he has learned in the past 2 years. Well enough for now, gotta start doing some work. I have posted his newborn pic so you can see how much he's grown! I will post his 2 year old pics soon when we have them done. Enjoy!
