A 1st Birthday

Well almost a week later, here I am finally posting about Miles’ birthday! Ryan and I both started new jobs which means I’m usually up by 5:30 every day trying to get work done before the boys wake up. Every day is a balancing act of getting my hours in and then taking care of my kids, my house, and all of my normal things I have to do. And on top of that, Ryan’s been working long hours too so it’s been a busy couple of weeks!

But of course we took time to celebrate our baby boy’s first birthday! His actual party is this Sunday so on his birthday it was just the four of us (+ Chance!) and it was kind of great. He had a great morning at school and came home to take a long birthday nap. We ate pasta and meatballs (this kid seriously can’t eat enough meat!) and let him dig into some cake. 

Guess Who Is Turning 1!

This cutie boy turns 1 on Friday!


I’ve been feeling nostalgic about this little guy and our fast year together so here are some of my favorite pictures from Miles’ first year of life!  There are so many, maybe I’ll do a “Part 2” tomorrow! (PS: He’s a MUCH easier kid again! Sleeping great, having perfect days at school, being less clingy to me. Must have just been a phase!)

Emmett – 2.5

A little update on our Emmett is long overdue! I asked him some questions last night about his favorites and here’s what he said:

Favorite Color: Purple and red

Favorite Sport: Baseball


Favorite Things to Eat: Eggs and Toast (but honestly, he’s kind of on an egg strike and just eats 4 pieces of toast)

Favorite Song: The Goldfish Song by Laurie Berkner who he is obsessed with! 

Best Friend: Nora


Favorite Show: Sesame Street

Emmett’s vocab finally exploded. His favorite things to say are “No way”, “That’s Amazing”, “What’s That”, “wait a minute” and “Emmett do it”/”Emmett’s turn”

He really is so much fun to be around. It’s amazing watching him grow up!
