Justin is 1!


Well, my baby is 1. (Almost two weeks ago.) I think it's taken me so long to blog about it because I'm in denial. Can you believe how much they grow and learn and change in just one year? The whole baby thing was just as incredible and fun to experience for the second time around as it was with Joseph. We had a fun little family birthday party at home with a pile of presents and cake and ice cream. Justin actually understood and enjoyed the concept of ripping the wrapping paper off the gifts. And Joseph was very willing to be of help when needed. He absolutely loves all his presents! A big thanks to all our family who spoiled him rotten.
Here is the opening of the presents:

He is soooo cute! I love the cheesy smile he gave while eating his cake! They grow up way too quickly :)

I know, it goes by way too fast and they change so much, it isn't quiet fair. He is so adorable and he is looking more like Joseph as he gets older. I miss them and can't wait to see them again in ONE month!

I can't believe that he is 1!! And I can't believe how much he looks like Joseph!

I am really jealous that Jordan & Mom were just out there playing with you guys. I had to explain everyday to Alexis how it costs money to fly on the airplane to Seattle! We miss you guys!

I love his smile. I am having a hard time watching Anna grow up. I can't imagine when she will be one! Charlie always seemed older to me, but I just want Anna to stay a baby. I guess you just have to cherish every moment

Jill, you have the cutest little boys. I can't believe how much they've grown. Well maybe I can since it's been so long. I feel so out of the loop. MN is so far away. Good to see you on here though. I'm excited to read all about your cute little family. Talk to you later.

when I first got onto your blog and saw that baby picture I was like "what she has another baby" but then I got it. Your kids are so cute and you look so happy and cute too.
