Our little bitty baby boys will be one year old on Sunday May 3rd, 2009. Only 5 days until their birthday. Life was so very different one short year ago.
On Sunday we’ll be having a party at our house with family and friends. We are having a small gathering of about 20-25 people. We have set ourselves a challenge to serve low allergy party food. We’ve found some great recipes, we are just hoping it’s edible on the day! We’ll post stories and pictures after the big day!
Our little babies, are slowly and surely becoming cheeky, adventurous, inquisitive toddlers. Both boys are exploring the world around them in new and different ways. They have been inquisitive about things for months, but lately you can see they are thinking and learning in different ways. Its hard to explain – you just have to trust me on this one!
Apparently the latest greatest idea is to climb on anything and everything you can. Both boys love the climb on the coffee table. Ben is a little more adventurous and will climb on his toys and toy boxes too.
Ben on the toy chest. He fell off about one second after this picture was taken.
Like I said, it’s getting close to the boys birthday. The other day they got their first birthday present. A package that came all the way from Texas!! The boys LOVED their presents.
THANK YOU to Monica, Deona and Everett!
We decided to let them open it. We thought it would be more special this way. If we waited until their birthday it would get lost in all the other presents and they would not enjoy the experience quite as much. They had a lovely time unwrapping their first birthday present, and playing with the tissue paper.
Here’s Ben with his handsome orange shorts – apparently he’s interested in something else at the moment!
...... and some more tissue paper!
Benjamin really likes to be thrown around in play. He likes to be lifted up high and turned upside down and all those fun things. Both boys like to be held in the regular position, sitting on your hip. We then count…..1….2….3… then JUMP in the air. Both boys think this is very funny!
