Happy Birthday Brenan!

(this picture makes me laugh, I love the line of drool)

Brenan turned 1 today! I can't believe how this year has flown by. It's been a bittersweet day. I'm just not ready for him to grow up yet!! He has been such a sweet fun baby, I could keep him like this forever. Chad assures me there are good times to come still too.

This little boy has some major personality. It's hard for me to get much done with him around cause I just want to play with him. He has started taking more steps the last couple of days and is standing great on his own. He loves playing with his older brothers, and they are so patient and sweet to him. He gives the best slobbery kisses ever, and will give them whenever one is requested. He's getting a few more sounds down. He is totally all boy I can tell already. I'm going to have trouble with this little guy and his manners. The other day in the bath tub he was tooting up a storm (I'm pretty sure it was on purpose) and after each one he would bust out laughing. I'm in for trouble for sure, haha.

We had a little family party for him tonight that was fun. We ate chick-fil-a (I love that place) and then had cake, and sang to Brenan. I made him his own little cake and he dove right in. It was so fun watching him, he was in heaven. Devan and Tristan were happy to help him out with it to. We got him a cozy coupe car. We didn't have time to take him for a ride in it tonight, but I'm super excited to see how he likes it tomorrow.

I'm so blessed to have this little guy as part of the family. Happy Birthday Brenan!

hmmmm.... what do we have here?

Tastes good...
Seriously Mom? I can just dig in, you're not even going to stop me??!!
K, I'm gonna need some reinforcements.
Nevermind guys, back off, I've got this.
Best day EVER!

hahahaha LOVE the picture captions!! Oh and Jake and I are just getting addicted to this Chick Fil A thing...their nuggets are DIVINE!!! Why did it take until the year we moved from Idaho for them to get one there??? Jake has been making sneaky little trips there without me lately...I think he's going a bit overboard.

Anyway, Happy birthday to Brenan! He's such a studly little guy...and that cake looks so yummy...I would've dove in too. Or popped out of it...bahahahaha JUST KIDDING! Miss you guys!

Too cute for words! Happy Birthday little man! Isn't Chic-Fil-A delish? It's my hubby's favorite fast food joint and we just had one open here over by Edwards. I'm sure to be 300 pounds by the end of the year,lol. Happy New Year sweet friend!
