We celebrated Lee's 3rd Birthday with a campout party.  I can't believe my little baby Lee is such a big boy - 3 years old!  He is all boy with such a sweet heart and I am so thankful to be his mom.

It has been the most beautiful, warm winter day and I hope everyone, especially the birthday boy, enjoyed the party.  There were flashlights to decorate, tents, campfire, hotdogs, dirt cake, wheelbarrow rides, lots of fun on the playground and to top it all off a thrilling, hilarious campfire story told by Happy.  What's a birthday party without a terrified little boy - Webb - and then too many turns on the tire swing that leads to throw up everywhere - Rhodes?  A great day!  Happy, Happy Birthday Leebo!

Taster Boy

I'm afraid Lee has inherited my sweet tooth and has named himself my cookie taster boy.

The day of Brant's birthday was so fun!  Why do babies love balloons so much?!  He woke up to a birthday balloon and then we went over to Mom & Dad's to play and then go on a hike.  Lee/Buzz, Tucker & Raines walked and played for about 2 miles and Brant & Finley snuggled up and enjoyed the ride.  So fun to let them run and play free at the mountain!  Later that night Mom, Dad, Natalie & her 3, Happy, Donna, Erin & DJ all came over for hamburgers and cake.  Lee was in charge of sprinkling the cake and so the whole kitchen was decorated for Brant's birthday!  Then, a few days later we had a little play date with Brant's baby friends.  There are so many sweet babies, mostly boys, that are so close in age to Brant.  So fun!
Happy, Happy Birthday to You!

Happy 1st Birthday Brant!

It has been a really fun year with this sweet boy.  Brant is such a blessing with such a fun personality and the best big smile.  I can't wait to see the plans the Lord has for him.  I pray more than anything that Brant will love the Lord with all his heart and all his soul and all his mind and that he will realize and understand how much the Lord loves him and longs for him.
I have loved watching him grow during the past 12 months - some things about him right now are:
He crawls around so fast but doesn't show any sign of walking.
He eats like a champ.  I have never seen someone so excited about food.
His hair is straight in the front and curly in the back.
He pushes cars, firetrucks, trains & airplanes all over the place.  Love this.
He gets so excited when someone new comes in the room.  Especially Whit.
He is so curious and into everything.
He loves playing at the train table.
His favorite songs are Big, Bad Bubba Baby and Hey Bubba, Bubba.
He is a big fan of Walker.
And of music and dancing.
And being outside.
Happy Birthday Brant!
How do they grow so fast?
