Happy Birthday Babies

I'm a bit behind....Henry and Hudson celebrated their first birthdays last week.
We had a small family dinner and then let the birthday boys eat their cakes. Hudson dug right in!

Henry went at it a little more slowly....Here is Henry's first bite.And Hudson's bites were by the handfuls....HenryHudsonHenryHudsonHenryWhat a fantastic year this has been. These boys are delightful....that sounds like such an old lady thing to say but it is the most accurate way to describe them. They just make me smile! They are very different from each other. Henry is close to walking and Hudson will follow soon.

Hudson in a screamer...a very loud screamer. He also loves to eat - he shovels it in. He loves to drink water out of a sippy cup. Hudson screams when he sees someone drinking without him.

Henry is a laugher....he loves to be tickled and thrown up in the air. He loves his bottle still. We like to line them up and have them race for the bottles - Henry wins every time!
Happy Birthday Babies! We LOVE you!!!

Kindergarten Graduation

Yesterday Julius graduated from Kindergarten.....and yes, I cried. I'm a bawl baby by nature so when my baby boy sang a song about growing up I lost it....rather embarrassing....but oh, well. The music program was great - sweet and funny!
Mrs. Henry also had a special program. She had the students show us some of the fun songs and rhymes she taught them to remember the stuff they were learning. There were songs about each of the shapes and one about the Days of the Week, but our favorite was the Month's of the Year done with the actions to the Macarena - it was super cute! They also counted by 5's, 10's and 2's. What smartie pants they are!
This was the gift we all chipped in for...one of the mother's painted each of the children's faces on the pot.

Here is Julius with his dear Teacher -Mrs. Henry. We feel really, really lucky that he was blessed with such a wonderful person for his teacher this year. He's missing her already!
I'm so proud of this boy! He makes me happy everyday. He is sweet and kind and super duper funny! I love him so, so much...
