happy ONE year

My baby is now one!!
Although according to Peyt, he's still zero. Why? Because he didn't even grow yesterday!

It's so crazy because I thought for sure I'd be SO sad, knowing he is my last. And the truth is, I'm not. Sure, I'm sad, but not any more so than when any of my other boys turned one. Yes, it's sad because the time is going by so fast with ALL my boys, but I'm also loving the thought of being done with the baby stage. (And especially nursing. Woo hoo!!) And I know that 5 boys is a whole lot to take care of and my boys definitely deserve to have more of their mom's attention, instead of hearing 'after I feed the baby' or 'we can't because the baby is/needs [fill in the blank]'. 

But I digress. So here's the real post.

 This was really the first picture I got. 
Really mom? Again?

Fine, I'll give you a couple silly smiles

Can you believe the goofy hat my mom put on me?!

Cake Time

Seriously? What am I supposed to do with this thing that is already starting to lean?

Hmm... tasty.

Two hands!
Definitely ate more than any of my other boys.

Perfect after dessert treat - a good thumb suck.

Yes, I eventually ate something healthy.
 (And for the record, no I don't go around giving my one year old whole apples, but he stole this from Trey and was just way too cute trying to get some tastes.)

Happy Birthday to our perfect little one year old!! 
We're so extremely lucky to have you!!

easter egg hunt at Thanksgiving Point

I won tickets to Thanksgiving Point's Easter hunt.

We've had a very bad experience at public Easter Egg hunts in the past (picture a mom grabbing an egg that my 2 year old was reaching for) so we've stopped going to them but I figured since people had to pay to get in, it may be a slightly different crowd. 

And it wasn't bad actually. The boys got a bunch of eggs (although apparently Thanksgiving Point doesn't believe in candy in Easter Eggs). They also got to ride a little train thing, play a ton on bouncy houses and do some other games.

However, I would never pay to get in. So that's my recommendation to you. :)

Here's pretty much the only pictures I got - the younger boys looking thru their eggs

my 5 handsome boys

my 5 silly boys

coloring eggs

 We had a lot of fun coloring our Easter eggs. Trying new ways to color them. Making polka dot eggs. Dinosaur eggs (which I'm sure many of you saw on Our Best Bites) totally worked and was very cool.

Brock just enjoyed walking around with one sock off

Peyton's Smile

 I told Peyton to smile for a picture

 I told him his eyes were closed in the first picture so we had to try again

I told him to keep his eyes open

I told him to keep his eyes open AND smile

I gave up.
Cute enough.
