Party time!

We had a great first birthday at our house!  Between mini cupcakes with a delicious orange cream cheese frosting that I found the recipe for online and skyping all of the grandmas and grandpas, it was a great evening.  We opened presents and Addi seemed to be more interested in the paper than the presents.  Overall, it was a great night and I cannot believe that my tiny tiny babies are now a year old!

My big one-year-olds!

SUCH a handsome boy!

My beautiful, spunky little girl

She demolished her cupcakes

Weston was more careful, he really doesn't like to be messy.

Our DOZENS of mini cupcakes.  Who knew that one box of cake mix made 80 mini cupcakes?!

Weston Mark: First year in pictures

I heard once that Motherhood is the toughest job you'll ever love.  It is so true.  This year has been such a roller coaster ride for me.  It has been harder, scarier and more fulfilling than anything else I have ever done in my life.  Here are some pictures of my firstborn on his birthday.

On the day he was born.

First time to be held

Snuggles with dad

Snuggles with mom

Always escaping

Always the best snuggler

Just like dad!

Best facial expressions EVER!

Loves his sister SOOOO much!

He likes his peace and quiet

Love Grandma loves!

..... and still escaping

Silliest boy!

Finally fed up;)

So Handsome!

I just love this little guy.  He gives the best snuggles and the best loves.  He is always happy, always patient, and always loves his mom.  He likes to be just like his dad, and thinks he is pretty cool when he stands up. (The only thing his sister can't do.)  He is the BEST son a mother could ask for and will always be the best big brother to his sister.  Happy First Birthday Weston!  I love you!

Addison Grace: First year in Pictures

Ok, I'm a mom and I get to indulge myself a little bit.  Here is Addi!

On the day she was born.  One year ago today.

First time her daddy got to hold her.

First time mommy got to hold her

First time she got to snuggle.

Always a princess

Snuggle time with dad

She has always loved him more than anyone in the world.

She loves her brother, even if she doesn't show it the same way he does;)

So glad to be home!

A great little traveler from the beginning.

"Don't you dare take me from my daddy..."
She's such a crazy sleeper!

Best friends with her Momma!

Always has to make sure he's ok.

Such a beautiful girl!

So sweet:)

I love this girl with all of my heart, she is so special.  She has enough personality to fill up an entire room already and she's just barely two feet tall.  I have loved watching her grow and become such a little person this year.  She's a fighter and she's feisty.  She has so much love to give and gives it so freely.  Happy first birthday Addi Grace!  I love you so much!
