Happy 1st Birthday!

Jay & Will celebrated their 1st Birthday on September 17th. How time has flown! When we thought of all the things they liked best over the year, Baby Einstein was at the top of the list! So it was a Baby Einstein day all around - from cake to pinata!

Children's Miracle Network - Cutest Baby

It has been a crazy September/October; no time to blog :( but that's about to change! I plan to catch up with old posts over the next two weeks starting with these ...

We took the boys to a photo shoot at The Mills to benefit Children's Miracle Network. Here are a few of the proofs:

It was a great day. As you can see the boys had fun at the photo shoot and we all enjoyed dinner at Tony Roma's. The boys had ribs for the first time ... mmmm good ... especially the Babyback style (St. Louis style was just okay). Photos mark the boys official 1 Year Old photos. I can't believe my babies are 1!

Zoo Field Trip

Amanda took the boys on a field trip to the zoo (mommy so jealous!). They had a wonderful time. Will loved petting the sting rays and Jay loved the penquins.

Look at The Boys Outside

Hey Jay, look at the kids outside!

There are kids outside! Hey Mom, come check out the kids!

Hey Mom, you better tell that one to take that toy out of his mouth before he chokes!

I'm going to go outside to say hello in person!

Mom - Where did the boys go???

First Mothers Day

Mommy, Jay and Will opened gifts together.

Posed for Daddy.

We joined Aunt Nickole and Uncle Tom and the cousins at Uncle Bill's Pancakes. Where's Tommy? shhh ... pooping under the table!

Later Jay and Will helped Mommy plant her Mother's Day flowers. Jay had fun in the turtle pot, great idea Grandmie!

Miss Amanda is the best. She helped us dye eggs for the whole family!

She even let me play with the wax crayon to write my name.
