Beckhams birthday

Oh my baby is one. I am still in a mild state of shock over what happened last year, but the anxiety wears off a little every time he smiles. So this is how our day went. We woke up around 9 and started making his birthday breakfast. He joined u's around 9:45. This kid likes to sleep in, he gets that from me. We devoured these ableskiever, they were yummy.

We ate fast and justin and i went to a friends house to get our butts kicked in a crossfit workout. Ouch. We then went on a scavenger hunt to find a place that sold cupcakes (I didn't want to make a whole batch with us leaving in the morning.) T
FYI, no one is open on the 26th if Christmas falls on a Sunday. We ended up getting one from claim jumper, red velvet. It was good. After some naps and packing, we ate left over BBQ ribs from Christmas, which Beckham loved!

Then we dug into the birthday cake. We had high expectations of what Beckham would do to this, and we were blown away. He dug right in and was stuffing the whole thing in his mouth. I'm thinking he loved that too.

Followed by a bath. (I have pictures of this too, but they will not grace the pages of this blog)

This was followed by the biggest sugar high I have ever seen in any kid. He crawled laps around the house and was screaming like a banshee. you could literally see his little mind turning. This could be one of two things. 1. A good thing that he doesn't generally eat much sugar or 2. a horrible thing that we took pure joy in watching him get all hopped up on cake. Either way, I am so blessed to have him as my little boy and to get to spend everyday with his happy little face. He is so sweet and fun and I couldn't be more happy that he joined our family. I love you goose.

Merry Christmas

From our family to yours.

I got a email (ha!) from my sister today saying that I need to update my blog. The nerve! Just kidding. Apparently I have been a bit preoccupied with getting everything ready for Christmas. I am also in pure shock that my baby is turning one in a week. Could it really have been a whole year already? ANways, I am desperately trying to soak up these last moments of him as my baby. But I am really excited to have my own little Christmas and birthday party with my family. And we leave for California a couple days after Christmas, so January will be full of updates.

Merry Christmas!

Tis the season...

For being sick. Everyone is feeling completely run down lately. The humidifier has gone from one room to another depending on who has the worst cough. It started in Beckhams room while we had pneumonia, then into Rhys's to help prevent his cold to turning into it. Now they both have the thickest green snot I have ever seen and Beckhams viral infection has spread into his eye, meaning big eye boogers. Not to mention they had become slightly nocturnal the last few weeks and were both getting up twice a night, at different times. I am tired. Let's just hope we kick this cold and the new sleep habits before we head to Cali.

Lets meet Santa

Beckham met Santa for the first time. Didn't think much of it.
Rhys wouldn't get anywhere near him. And used me as a human shield when I got close with Beckham.
