Ladies and Gentlemen. We have a birthday boy in the house! Bradley turned 1 today! I'm going to say it again (for the thousandth time). TIME FLIES! We've been having lots of fun, so I guess that's what happens! He is the most amazing baby. The thing I love most about Bradley is that he's always smiling. He charms everyone who meets him. I'm so lucky to be his Mom. :)
I can't believe I'm 1!!!
My brothers got me this cool truck. Thanks bros!
This light up wand is from my cousins Ryan, Jack, Kyle, Ally, and Cole.
This is Bradley's cousin Cole. Cole is 6 days older than Bradley. When they were both newborns, it was hard to tell them apart. :)
Grandma and Bradley. Bradley, I don't know how to say this delicately, but I'm not sure you should've had that cupcake.....
The PERFECT picture of my ANGEL! I was so excited for him to wear this shirt and hat I made. Didn't they turn out so cute??!!
Hurry Mom!! I want my pumpkin surprise cupcake NOW! (They were delish!!)
Diving in head first
I'm about to get very messy in a minute!
Taking the whole thing all at once!
The decor. Emily, thanks for taking time out of your day to help me with this! You're the best!
The after party. The clothes are in the washer. :)
As for Bradley's 1 year stats, I won't know until Monday. Here are a few of the things Bradley is doing at 1 year old:
-Says "bye bye" and "night, night" -Waves -Says "uh oh" "guys!" and "boys!" -Todd and I practice his walking and he's ALMOST there. He cruises around on his Eeyore bike and his walker. -He has 8 teeth and maybe more on the way. He's been a little cranky around night time lately.
Happy Birthday Bradley! You are mommy's angel baby. I love you so much!!
Our winter grass FINALLY grew in all the way and the boys are now allowed to play in the yard. Man, it was torture for them to have to play on the patio for 2 weeks! It didn't make my life easy either. :)
I love this picture. I love the look on Tyler's face. He sincerely loves his baby brother. He was having so much fun that night doing under-dog with Bradley's swing.
Josh was a super hero flying on his swing. He was having a blast!
I made this gift for my friend Lindsay. We actually met at her wedding! She booked our photo booth (scrapBOOTH) for her reception. We had several phone conversations regarding the booth and all I could think about was how NICE she was! I seriously hadn't spoken with a client like her EVER! She is a scrap-booker and provided all of her own embellishments to put in her book. She was an amazing client and is turning out to be an amazing friend. Anyway, her and her husband, Billy, wasted no time starting their family. :) They are expected to have their baby GIRL ,Athena, by mid-end of January.
I had such a fun time putting this together. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the onesie I made. It was pink with white and silver ruffles on the bum and a cup cake applique on the front. I'll have to have Lindsay take a picture of it so I can show you guys. It was the 3rd one I've made and I think they are so cute! Can you tell I want a girl really, REALLY bad??!! I'm living my dream vicariously through my friends. LOL! I do have to say that this was all TODD'S idea! If you know Todd, I'm sure you can believe it. He really has such great, creative ideas. I was just proud that I was able to pull it off. :) Happy Baby Shower Lindsay! You are going to be a wonderful Mother!
This year we went to our ward's trunk or treat to celebrate Halloween. The boys had a GREAT time! Bradley was Eeyore, Josh a little devil, Tyler a pirate, and I was a flapper. We ate some yummy chili and desserts, then I handed out candy while Todd walked with the boys to do the trunk or treat.
Isn't Bradley the cutest Eeyore you've ever seen?
Yes, he IS a little devil!
Josh and his best buddy Ryder. They love each other so much!
The crew! Zane, Tyler, Ryder and Josh!
Bradley and Mommy
Me and Kari. (Ryder and Zane's mom) We have become great friends over the past several months. :)
