He's ONE already.

This past Sunday we celebrated our sweet boy's first birthday... how did this year go SO fast?! It is a complete joy to be this little boys mommy, I am so thankful for him and his sweet personality (although he is a little naughty sometimes!) there is defiantly something special about the love between a mother and her son. I am proud to say that I successfully (exclusively) pumped for our boy for 11.5 months... it was hard and I felt like giving up at times but I'm so glad I didn't. He has transferred smoothly to cow's milk, he has 4 teeth (4 more than his sister had at this age!) continues to enjoy trying new big boy food, loves pulling himself up and can take steps when holding on to our fingers! He had his one year check up yesterday... he is still in the 1% but he's healthy and growing! He weighs a whole 16 lbs and 7 oz, he did not like his shots but was a champ for his finger prick, he didn't even make a peep! I just wanted to share this quick update on him along with a few pics from his birthday party! We are bummed that we were missing a lot of important family members for this celebration, but we're so thankful for the family that we do have near by and our sweet friends that joined us to celebrate our boy! Blessings on this Tuesday morning!

Hello April!

As a new month begins, we are looking forward to what this month will hold for us! 

* I started training for my 10 mile race I'll be running on June 5th! Yikes!! I'm a little nervous but just trying to take it one training day and 1 mile at a time! 

* On April 10th we will celebrate our lil man's 1st Birthday!! Hard to believe that it's already been a year since he blessed us with his royal cuteness! 
* Today my amazing husband is starting a second job working 3 overnights... while this isn't something we are thrilled about. We need a little extra income to keep up with rent and so we can start putting some money into savings. I appreciate my husband more than he will ever know, he is honestly one of the most selfless people I have ever met and I don't know what I did to deserve such a hard working, loving husband and father to my babies!! Please keep us in your prayers as we head into this transition! 
Here are a few recent pics of the kiddos, Easter, and this past weekend when one of my best friends Rebecca & her boyfriend Steve came to visit from Chicago! Happy Friday friends... I hope you have a blessed weekend!
