Happy Birthday Levi

ONE!! I can't believe my baby is ONE today!!
Today we woke up to a coughy baby. After singing happy birthday to him and laying around playing, we went to breakfast at IHOP! Levi had eggs and a pancake! He also had milk for the first time today! Bye Bye formula! At first he wasn't too sure, but he has drank it a little better. Lane took to milk immediately...and I hope Levi does as well...if not I'm not sure what we will do...but we'll just see.
We spent the rest of the morning playing around the house. Around three, we headed to Arlington to take Levi to Chucky E. Cheese. We had family meet us there and we had a fun little time! Levi loved riding the little rides and just walking around!

Not sure about this!

Lane shooting hoops

I made some cupcakes to celebrate with!

Levi was intrigued by the candle!

Yum Yum!!

I love his face here.... "Please dad, can I have some more"!

Saying hi to Chucky

When I saw this picture I died laughing...his expression is's like he was saying really mom...more pictures!!

And gotta have one with big brother!!

And I had to throw this in for comparison purposes!! Lane @ one year also!

After that we went to the Mellow Mushroom for dinner. Once we got home Levi was worn out and ready for bed! I was waiting to do his 12 month pics tonight, but needless to say he had other plans! So I'll have to take those tomorrow! We have his one year appointment so I'll have all his stats too!!
Happy Birthday Levi!!!

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, a dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest. -Robert Montgomery

Over the weekend all the loan approval, paperwork, commitment letter stuff was complete, which meant that the official "sold" sign went up on our lot!! So tonight after dinner we drove over to take a look! So here it is...our lot!

We have an oversized lot...and it is big...our backyard is going to be quite large!

It goes all the way to the far left corner in the picture below...where the fences kinda meet.

Looking down our street! I think all but one of the lots are sold.

Getting a little perspective...Paul and the boys in the corner!

We are on a cul-de-sac!!

Lane is super excited about our new house! He asks if we are moving daily, ha!

I warn you in advance...I probably will be posting house pics at each stage! This is something I want to document for our memories and future blog books!! So here we go!!

A Wedding Story

March 17, 2012
Saturday arrived and it was windy and rainy. However the rain held off and the wedding was wonderful! And it was extra special b/c Lane was one of the ring bearers.  His first wedding...such a sweet memory!
It was an outdoor wedding...even more of a reason all were thankful the rain held off!

The Bride's table: cupcakes!

The Groom's table: mini pies!

Pre-Wedding: Brittany, Amanda, Bree

Brody and Lane pre wedding!! So cute!

Amanda and the family

Daddy and this pic!

The wedding set-up

Lane was absolutely precious during the ceremony!!! Not gonna lie....this momma teared up a bit watching him walk down! I was so proud of him....he did so good and had a smile on his face the whole time!!

Bree, Britt, and Haley

I guess no one told Lane to turn around when he got he just stayed face foward the whole time!!

Here comes the Bride!

Intently watching....

And he did turn around to give us a sweet smile or two during the ceremony!

Towards the end of the night poor Levi had all the fun he could! He fell asleep on Grammie's shoulder.

Having fun on the dance floor!

Lane and Brody having fun too!

 Nothing like ending the night dancing with my sweet boy!

We had lots of fun and it was a great wedding!! Congrats Amanda & Zach!!
