Happy Birthday baby boy!

That's right. Andrew turned one today. I don't know where the time has gone. We had a fun little family party and I thought I'd share some of the pictures. Enjoy!

First word

That's right! Andrew said his first word today! I feel like I've been pushing for it for a while. I always try and get him to repeat words that would be meaning full for him, mama, dada, etc., but he just looks at me and smiles. He makes the sounds when he's just playing around, but not communicating. He even shakes his head and says "Uh uh" but he's just playing. This morning I walked past him and didn't stop. He started whining, crawled after me and cried out, "Mama!" It was the sweetest whine I've heard in a long time!

Happy holidays!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. We were, and still are, sick the whole two weeks of vacation, so our holidays were nice, but low key. I made a few things for the boys and, believe it or not, they actually turned out pretty cute! You know those "taggie" baby blankets? Well, I found this idea for a taggie monster and I made it for Andrew. He likes it! He thinks it's really funny. It always makes him laugh.

I made these snakes for all three boys. Andrew's is about 4 feet long and the other two are about 5 feet. My sewing machine quit on Christmas Eve, so poor Andrew's snake only has one eye! The boys really like how big they are and they sleep with them every night. It feels so nice to make something the boys actually like!

Who's ready to party!?!
