Happy 1st Birthday!!


Happy 1st Birthday Grayson and Weston! To say that this year has been crazy, fun, overwhelming and exhausting is an understatement. You came into this world a year ago and our lives have never been the same.


To celebrate we started off with some birthday muffins. I also tried to get some pics of my little 1 year olds. Trying to get them in the same picture was impossible!



We also opened our birthday presents. Thank goodness they had some help from Austin and Addie!


Weston and Grayson - I've said it before and I'll say it again. You have brought this family such an amazing amount of joy! Other than some teething and the occasional colds, y'all are really happy kids. 


You play with each other more and more and like to make the other one laugh. You share your toys about 50% of the time - the other 50% is spent stealing toys. We'll work on sharing this next year.


Y'all eat anything and everything. There aren't too many things you have refused. At the rate you are going, you'll catch Addie in no time!

You both still take 2 naps a day. Some days they are really long - some days not so much. It's definitely getting difficult to work when you are awake. Grayson - you have learned how to crawl up on the couch and attack my laptop!


Grayson - your devilish little smile makes me laugh. I love that you'll start to do something, look over at me to see what my reaction is and then continue doing it anyways! It's cute now - probably won't be when you are older. You are walking, running and climbing all over the place!

You love to say daddy over and over but have recently revived mama. That makes my heart happy. You have a lot to say and say it loudly. You are smiley and not a shy kid at all. Unless you are flirting with the ladies - then you turn on your charm and play shy.


You still have just 8 teeth - although it's really 7.5. That last tooth is just taking it's sweet time coming in!

Grayson - I love the light in your eyes, the sweet smiles you give and the fact that you are becoming snuggly again. I love everything about you little man!


Weston - you are still my sweet, observant kid. Your recent obsession is driving cars all over the floor. And you make this cute little vroom sound too. You are precious! You are cruising and crawling everywhere - no walking yet! You'll stand for a second before you decide sitting is more fun. 

Weston - you are pretty chatty and talk a lot. You point at things around you and think it's funny if I point back at you. You are pretty quick to laugh and give us those break-your-face-because-they-are-so-big smiles. You're still hanging out at the 8 tooth count as well although the all the drooling, a molar might be making it's way in. 


Weston - you have always been my sweet, gentle soul. I think the boyness in you is going to start taking over. You've discovered how much fun is to bang things against the walls, the window, your brother's head.

I love you so much my little Weston. I'm excited to watch you grow and continue to develop. And even if you become a crazy, crazy little man like your brothers, you'll always be my sweet little boy.


Grayson and Weston, this past year has been filled with some downs and many, many ups! We couldn't love you anymore than we do and are so proud to be your parents. We cannot wait to see what plans God has laid out for you. We love you!!!
