Our First Birthday!

One year ago we were blessed with three little miracles. At 1856, 1858, & 1859pm and 4, 6, and 8 weeks later we were a full family of 5 at home. People wonder how we do it! I am fortunate to have one of the best and most loving husbands around. We also have wonderful family and friends that have helped and we couldn't have done it without them. As we looked back on the past year of our children's lives we feel truly blessed and are only excited about their future.

They had a great Day, we went to the Woodlands Mall and met up the the Brown girls and shopped and had lunch. The girls got a Minnie Mouse and JT got a Mickey. Then home to wait for Daddy and off to Chucky Cheese with Aunt Shelley and the cousins! They had a wonderful time as you will see in the pictures below. They sang Happy Birthday, got a visit from Chucky, and even ate (attacked) some Ice Cream.

JT, Hannah, Claire, Kayleigh, & Hazel
The Birthday King and Queens!
JT has an addiction it's Ice Cream
He is VERY possessive of his Ice Cream
The girls driving their first car
JT wanted to drive alone!

I don't think the girls liked JT's Driving?

So here are the updates on the babies.

JT - Can take a step or two then falls. He can stand alone forever! He is still Mommies cuddle bug. He loves Cheerios and jumping in his bed! He truly is our little Monkey.

Claire - Is the bravest and can take a step as long as she doesn't try to let her tummy go first! She loves to make you smile using her snorty nose face! She would rather have fruit snacks but isn't really picky. She thinks Bubba is funny and imitates his jumping in bed or just laughs at him. She is very much a Daddy's girl just ask her! She can shake her head no and even understands no in German!

Hazel - Has taken the most steps and if she didn't get scared after two in a row she would be off and running!!!! She is our independent child and does things on her own. She loves to squeal at the top of her lungs (such a nice way to wake up :) ) She kicks her legs when she gets excited and too loves to snuggle but mainly with Daddy. She too can shake her head no and also understands it in German.

We are all using sippy cups and have gone to whole milk.

We want to thank each and everyone of you that have shared in the lives of our children. Your love and support have helped us make it through. We look forward to the days to come.

Stay tuned new weights next week.
