Will's First Birthday

I can't believe our little guy is 1 years old already. We went for his check-up and he is doing great. He weighed 22 lbs 8 oz and his height was 28 3/4 inches. He is in the 19th percentile for height and 46% for weight. Our short little guy is doing just great. He is 1 inch taller than Alivia was at this age and weighs 4 more lbs more than her at this age! ha! Here are a few pics from his party.
We had a great time celebrating our happy little guy!

Happy Birthday Little Man

Today is our little guys first birthday. We took his bottle away a week ago and he did great. He loves drinking whole milk from his sippy cup and continues to eat like a "champ," literally...ha!
We just love his sweet personality. He is a true blessing!

Fire Pit Nights

Tonight we decided to have hot dogs and smores on the fire pit. We had a lot of fun. Grammy came up and grilled out with us too. Grammy said this was her first smore ever and she loved it!
 I love family nights like this! :)

Mother's Day Weekend

I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend filled with lots of goodies. The kids got me new tennis shoes, a massage and Starbucks! Alivia and I spent the afternoon laying in the sun, my kind of day!
I am so blessed to have a wonderful family to spoil me rotten!!
Also, we had dinner to celebrate with my mom as well. I hope that I can be half as good as my mom is to me. She is just wonderful. Love you mom!

Tonight was Alivia's first t-ball practice. She absolutely LOVED it. Ben is the assistant coach and had a great time as well. I can't wait to see her in action at her first game in a few weeks! :)

Snow Days

We have had so much fun on our snow days. Alivia and Will both loved being in the snow. Of course, Will didn't last too long but Alivia would stay out there forever. I always cherish these fun days off with my kiddos! Heres to hoping the next snow storm isn't on its way.....I would rather get out in May and NOT June! :)

Happy Valentines Day

We had a wonderful Valentines Day. Ben sent me pretty flowers to work and the kids LOVED opening up all of their yummy candy and valentines from their party. Alivia's new favorite thing to do is bake! I just love that she likes doing this because I don't like cooking or baking at all. ha!! I can probably give my mom credit for this one because she introduced her to baking....I will try and get better at it now since Alivia likes it! :)

Dance with Miss Jill

Tonight was watch week at dance. Alivia just LOVES her teacher Miss Jill. Alivia takes a while to warm up with most people and Miss Jill may not know it but she talks about her all of the time. Jill was my dance teacher so I think it is really neat that Alivia is in her class. I also LOVE that she is liking dance. Of course, I have always wanted to be a dancer mom. ha! Hoping for competitions in our future. We will see!
