Happy Birthday Blake!

Yes, it has really been a year since I brought my sweet little guy home! I can't believe it. Time just goes to fast. Yesterday was Blake's birthday. I decided not to post this yesterday and spend the day with him - but hey! Today marks 1 year since he came home, so it's significant. :) So, my parents were able to come this last weekend for Blake's birthday bash - we had a big shin-dig at the church with some friends and family. Thanks again for all the great gifts - He's such a spoiled kid!

Over the last year, Blake has been the joy of our lives! We have had so much fun. He is such a good kid (I'll take a crappy, 9 sick months to have such a good baby again! *Hint Hint Heavenly Father and my waiting children!!) He is a quick learner too - I took him to the Dr. the other day for his 1 year checkup and they couldn't believe that he has been walking for over a month. The love we have for him is so indescribable! I'm sure all you parents out there understand that! I am so grateful to be a mom, and to raise one of Heavenly Father's most precious children.

Happy Birthday Blake!

We love you more than words can say!

The day we brought you home!
One year later!

These are at your birthday party!

You had so much fun eating your cookie, cake and ice cream! You love it!

Birthday Boy!

Say Please!

Yes, I know that most of my posts are all about Blake! But what mother doesn't like to brag about her kids!?

To let you know - Trent is doing great - just bought himself a brand new bow for this upcoming hunting season. He said he wanted to make sure he was ready for it so he bought the bow 6 MONTHS EARLY! sheesh! just kidding! I know he's going to bring home a nice moose or elk for some good eatin'

As for me - Same ol' same ol' I just love being a mom - Hanging out with Blake all day - except for when I take some ME time and go to the gym.
Speaking of which: I am headed back to the work force. Just 2 mornings a week for 5 or 6 hours - at the gym. Which means that Blake gets to come with! So no day care or babysitters! He can play in Childminding at the gym the whole time I'm working. We'll try it out for a month or two, see how is goes.

Blake is turning one in just under 2 weeks! I can't believe it! My baby isn't going to be a baby anymore!!... :( When do they start calling them toddlers? oh man!

Ok so back to origin of the title: here's a cute little video I took this morning of my growing boy!
