Look Who's ONE!

 Our littlier baby is ONE and we celebrated the only way we know how... CAKE! Tigue was even messier than I imagined he could be. It is unbelievable where this chocolate ended up...

Back at the start...

"Excellent... simply excellent"

 "Now, why did you wait a year to introduce this to my diet?"


"I could get use to this..."


Now that you've gotten a taste of Tigue's big day, let's go back to the beginning! By GOD's grace I was able to stay home from work and spend the whole day with my Little Dude and Jenny and Levi! Happy Birthday Little Man!

 "I wuv balloooooons!"
 Start the day off right!
(note this is the first bath)

"Just getting pampered on my big day!"

Being cute as usual...

"My cups"

Nothing is better than spending a birthday at the beach with some homies!

Levi loves the beach too!

He's a natural beach dude!

Tigue sporting his new specs!

Hanging out in his beach pool

Making sand castles with his balding Daddy...
(note Jenny's artsy focal effects on the picture)

Tigue wanted to take a seagull home with him
 All in all, an awesome day at the beach as a family!

On our way home from the beach, Levi and Ms. J were being quite the pair...

Now we've made it past dinner and birthday cake...
Time to get clean!
(This will be bath number 3)

That's right, bath number 3... number 2 was after we got back from the beach. 
Tigue was done with bathes at this point.

A fabulous day, celebrating our fabulous little boy!
Thanks for checking in and thank you to all those that wished Tigue a happy birthday through facebook, text messages, phone calls/voicemailas, and snail mail cards! We are truly blessed and glad to have you all as family and friends. Have a wonderful weekend and GOD bless!

Week 51...

 Looks who's almost ONE! I can hardly believe how quickly the last year has gone by. This little ham is simply incredible and I can't wait to see what GOD has in store for us this next year!

My initial reaction was to get his hand as far away from the tire as possible, but how do you say no to that face!? And don't worry, we washed his hands afterwards.
 Jenny's brother John watched the boys Saturday night to give us a chance to get out. It was wonderful. We came home to Tigue sleeping in the carseat...

"John, what's up with Tigue in front of the TV?"

"He woke up and I didn't know what to do..."

Classic Uncle Move :)
 Nothing better than relaxing in a high chair with a classic episode of Dora...
 I wish I thought twigs were this cool...
It's good to expose our city boys to nature.
 I am shocked at how much this boy loves water and throwing stuff!
 They love the park...
 Jenny and the boys went to the Museum of Science and Industry this week with Jen and Jane. It looks like they had a blast!
 New Tradition!
 "Where's our driver?"
 "Levi is in love... with tractors!"
Wow, I'm still in shock on how fast the last year went; we are so blessed. Two crazy little boys, a great home, and amazing family and friends. Have a great rest of the week everyone and thanks for checking in!
