It was one of my nieces' birthdays yesterday. Numero Uno. :) I can't believe that a year ago yesterday she was soo little and brand new! Such a special thing to watch these little guys grow up. To watch them interact and love on each other. To know that they're family, and they'll grow up together. They'll pick on one another, tell secrets, annoy parents, spend vacations together...and so much more. Growing up with no cousins and only two uncles has shaped me in ways that will make me cling to these moments, to cherish what we've been given as a family.
A fun and out of the way park. Cupcakes from Wagners. (so yummy--at least after one takes off the frosting characters) A quilt. A special candle and a lighter. We searched everywhere for party hats and came up empty handed. All that could be found were ones designed with boys in mind. Are party hats a thing of the past now? It would have added the perfect touch, but we had fun with the things we had on hand. It was a fun little get together to celebrate such a special landmark for a baby. :) My kind of style-- just family, outside, laid back and enjoyable.
These kiddos are so beautiful. My oldest niece came and stayed a couple of wonderful days with us. I miss that girl so much sometimes! She is a joy to play with and have around.
When I see these younger two together it is amazing to me. Being a part of S coming into this world, and then having my sister-in-law by my side for my little boy is something I'll never forget. Lots of love and care went into bringing these beautiful babies here. :)
Can you believe my boy is 4 months younger??! What are we feeding him??
