Happy Birthday David!

Happy Birthday David!
My Sweet Baby Boy,
I can't believe you are a year old today! This year has flown by and I'm amazed at how much you have grown. You were an angel at birth and remain one today! Your Dada and I still race to your room to get you up in the morning or from a nap. We love to get the first smile from you and do everything we can to see you smile throughout the day! I can't imagine my life without you now! Your smile and laugh make my heart melt! We are so blessed to have such a happy healthy child.
I have been so excited about your 1st birthday because it means so many new things. Don't get me wrong, I will miss all of the precious baby things, but I'm so excited about the future! I can't wait for you to walk and talk, turn around in your car seat so you can see the world facing forward!, and get into more things than you are supposed to!
I can't wait to share your birthday with all of our friends today! Your golf themed party is going to be so special!!
David, your Dada and I Love You more than we could ever express. You are our pride and joy, our precious Baby Boy!
Love, Mom

Photoshoot with Gaines

Chris hired me to do Gaines' 1 year pictures, so we started out early yesterday morning headed out to their family farm then when Gaines was tired we came back to their house and took some there. The sneak peek of the pictures is on my photography blog: but that isn't why I'm blogging about it. While we were taking pictures of Gaines, the horses came up to see what was going on and were very interested in Gaines at first, then I think they figured out what I was doing and wanted to get involved!

Gaines isn't even paying attention in these two pictures but if you look at the horses, they are looking RIGHT AT ME and Sticking out their tongues!!!

I had so much fun with Gaines, Chris & Zack! I can't wait to show them all of their pictures TODAY!!

JD's Birthday

I have been so busy preparing for David's 1st Birthday party, I forgot to mention last Sunday, JD's 31st Birthday! We enjoyed a dip in the pool at the Penney's then Mikato, the Japanese steakhouse for dinner. Here are a few pictures from the day!

Pictures Post

David's YaYa and Grandy were in Europe and we took a picture to send to YaYa.
L is for London!!
I made this super cute outfit for David and had it monogrammed. Isn't it cute?

I got David these precious Superman PJ's at the Carter's Outlet. He decided that he was a big boy and needed some beer to help his super powers!! J/K
JD went to Chicago last weekend for a bachelor party and David thought he should go with Daddy. He could just ride in the suitcase!
(in another cute outfit made by mommy)

David in his new doggy outfit I got him!
Such a big boy!

Last weekend, while JD was gone, Jamie and I went to the hydroponic farm here in Huntsville and while I cut strawberries, David ate them!

David last night at Gaines' 1st Birthday Party!

Me (with dark hair again) and my boy!

Gaines had a smash cupcake. David and Sarah Grace were trying it out. Getting ready for their big days next weekend!!

The babes got so dirty with cake that we hosed them down! David LOVED the water!

I had to throw this picture in here. Graeme spotted Gaines' duck cake from across the deck. He crawled across the deck and dug in! It was THE CUTEST THING!! He was way more interested than Gaines in the cake!!

4th of July

We started our 4th weekend off with a fun get together at Tom & Jana's house. The boys hung outside with the kids and the Mom's were inside.

I got a great chance to get a squeeze from Graeme!
My contribution to the evening! A fun flag cake with fresh blueberries, raspberries and sprinkles. I also made a delicious bluberry pie!
On Saturday we hung out at the pool then had a small cookout with Ben & Jamie.

David played hard and got really dirty!
On Sunday, we went to Birmingham to see JD's Grandmother, then went to visit friends.
We made our first trip to Flip Burger with Samantha & Paul!
The food was yummy and VERY interesting!

David enjoying some sweet potato fries!
Then we headed to Stephen & Liz's house to hang out. David got in some great play time with Cooper! The boys had a blast!

At their age, it is hard to get them both to look at the camrea at the same time without something in their mouth!
Stephen also cooked a FABULOUS Boston Butt so we got to enjoy in before we headed home!
What a Great family weekend!
