At Least Someone Enjoys Packing

Happy Father's Day!

I had the blessing of getting the best parents in the world. Today I just have to say how much I love my dad. He is such a good example to his family and I thank Heavenly Father for him every day. Try and relax today, dad! We love you!

Michael's dad is awesome too. He is so nice and funny and generous. He works so hard and doesn't take any time to himself. You better relax today, too!

Michael is a better father than I could've hoped for. Mikey just loves him and it's fun to see. He runs to him when he gets home from work and if Mikey and I wake up before Michael, Mikey bangs on the bedroom door until Michael lets him in. He just can't get enough of his daddy! Happy Father's Day, Michael, we love you!

Big News

No, we're not pregnant. But, Mikey started walking yesterday! Don't mind the mess in the video either because we are moving back to California two weeks from today! I guess I should get ready to be busy in more ways than one!

I Have A One-Year-Old

Yes, it's true and almost unbelievable. I am the proud parent of a one-year-old. Even though Mikey won't remember the day, we tried to make it his best day ever. Here are some pics of his big day.

The funny thing about this picture is I'm wearing the shirt I wore when I went into labor with Mikey. I thought it would be nice to wear on the anniversary : )

We started out the day with a walk because Mikey loves to get outside.

He even picked a flower off a bush when we were walking by and gave it to me. He's already a sweetie son.

Then we went to the park before it got too hot. Mikey had so much fun climbing and sliding and playing with mommy and daddy.

We had pizza for lunch and Mikey had his first piece of cheese pizza. As you can see, he loved it.

We went swimming in the afternoon and as you can see, he didn't like it too much unless we were holding him the whole time and there were lots of big kids splashing so we didn't last too long. We basically got the following reaction out of him. Maybe another time.

After a much needed nap we opened presents and ate cake. Mikey enjoyed his presents so much that he didn't even notice the cake.

Mikey loves cars....

And more cars...

Michael had a great time teaching Mikey how to play basketball.

Mikey has been pushing this laundry basket around the house for a couple weeks. We took away his walker because he was just getting mad that it wouldn't turn the way he wanted. This is his new obsession.

It seems to be working though because he took 5 steps a couple times in a row. Still not walking, but we're getting there.

It was a great day and I am so thankful for my cutie Mikey.
