Birthday Girl

Our sweet Leah is a one year old! We celebrated with a party with mainly family at her Nana's house who worked and worked to make sure everything was as perfect, pink & girly as possible. Leah loved the attention, clapped after everyone sang for her and then we stripped her for her very first taste of sugar - certain she would dive in and be a sticky mess. She loved her Nana-made cupcake for sure but was just as neat of an eater as she could be. The pic of her with her cake is practically her last bite and she was cleaner than she is after most meals! This year has gone by way too fast. Leah is an absolute joy & the sweetest little baby girl ever. And she's tiny - consistently in the 5 - 20% category and definitely smaller than most of friends in the nursery. She got her first two teeth just in time for her party and cake eating. We are head over heels in love with her precious little grin, easy going attitude and we especially love that she loves singing and dancing. She makes us excited to see what this next year holds! Happy birthday Leah!

End-of-year Program

The boys had their end of year program at their Children's Day Out "school" and as always, it was so much fun. Caleb's class did a fully choreographed "dance" to the Go Fish "Five Little Monkeys" song - complete with tail wiggle and lots of jumping, Caleb's speciality. We are pretty biased, but he was the star of the show if you ask us! :) He didn't miss a step and it helped that his older brother was sitting on the front row "coaching" him on his every more. Too cute! Aaron also graduated from Pre-K at the end of the program - he's so big! When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up, Aaron said "That's what college is for." Smart boy! Love these boys and we are truly blessed.
