And finally...

Last round of birthday pics- I promise!! These last pictures are of Thomas and the cake- um... he liked it! Who wouldn't?!?

Not quite sure what to think

Ok... this is some good stuff

What? Do I have some on my face?

And here's where the sugar kicked in...

Some more birthday fun

So here are some more pictures from the party. The party hats were a big hit.


Aunt Hayley liked Thomas' toys too.

 He started attacking me with kisses... I'll take it :)

This is his model face.

Ahh... the cake

The cake was a hit here.

You know it's been a good party when your naked at the end.

We can never get these 2 in a good picture!

Hot mamas... and by "hot" I mean sweaty after chasing children hopped up on sugar.

I'll post pictures of T's cake eating experience later. Too many pictures in 1 post already!

Here are the first few pictures from Thomas' birthday. There are lots of pictures so I'll do them in several posts- I know, I'm just trying to reel you in to keep you coming back for more!

Look who got turned around!!

I just shouldn't even try to get a picture with both of them.

Whit is pretty pumped about T's gifts too.

There will be more to come!

Thomas is 1!

My dear, sweet Thomas turned 1 today! It's amazing how much can change in a year. This time last year we were in the halls of the hospital due to tornado sirens, and this year we were celebrating his first year of life. He has grown from 8.10 lbs to 24.10 lbs. I'll find out tomorrow just how tall he is, but I know he's tall! He's got 7 teeth now- I just discovered 1 today. He is constantly on the go and wants to do everything his big brother does. It's amazing how different these two are. Yes, Whit is constantly on the go but has the ability to focus on something for long periods of time. Not Thomas! He's his own little man. This little guy has blessed our lives so much, and although he melts every day from about 4:30-6:30 I can't imagine life without him. I also love his red hair- and so do strangers who constantly talk to me about it, as if I've never noticed it. 

Happy first birthday, Thomas!!

Take me out to the ball game...

 After Whit's new found love of baseball we decided to take one of John's clients up on his offer to give us his tickets for a Redbirds game. It was a great night! Perfect weather and lots of fun. Our friends Dan, Katie and Sam Marks came too.

Well, maybe Angry Birds are more fun than the Redbirds

Watching baseball is fun, but bouncing in a bouncy house is way more fun

Ready to go home and go to bed!
