Celebrated Edwin Jonah's (you decide what to call him) first birthday this morning with a breakfast party! Here's our best (not good) family photo.
Birthday boy simply cannot wait another minute for his cake.
Can't say that I blame him. He had the coolest April Fools everything bagel cake known to man.
Sister (and everyone else) enjoyed donuts from the donut tower.
And this completes Edwin's first birthday photo report.
Checking out some animals, eating snacks on a hill. Life as a one year old is looking bright.
I don't even know what's happening here, but I think Leena wanted to wear her hat to bed. Because, God forbid, she actually ever wants to wear it outside on sunny days.
Doing some LuLaRoe organization and I've got these two helping me.
Two naked babies after bath time. How long until one of them pees on the floor do you think?
Leena using Edwin's door jumper as a stethoscope. I mean, she's got the right idea, but there is a real concern she might squeeze brains out because that thing is pretty strong.
Ready for my open house! Super excited to kick this business off and see what it's all about to get people in clothes they love. And there are a lot of clothes for me to find owners for. Yipes.
Post-bath selfie. I really enjoy the routines we have and the little moments it gives us to just chill with each other. (The selfie isn't the routine. It's the milk on the couch time.)
This girl and her hippo. She brings him everywhere. Not exactly everywhere, but a lot of places.
The pinwheels are up for child abuse awareness. These kids are just flopping around like goofballs.
We've got some leaky pipes so this sink is about to get replaced.
Getting in to the Easter spirit by going to visit some baby animals.
Three Lakes Park
This guy. Getting big and cruising around the playground with some awesome expressions.
Annual egg hunt with the Bott's. Love how these two are swapping egg stories.
Twinning. And winning.
Obligatory family Easter photo. Andy is finally starting to appreciate having family photos, which means he doesn't make it such a chore to get him to agree/cooperate. Great day at the river being with family and nature. Roll away the stone, boys.
I mean, better late than never. We were a little busy on the first and he's still 12 months old so it counts.
I'm sure I got a picture of her just looking through the hole also, but I much preferred this one of her face planting on her way through.
Daddy's girl. One hundred percent.
Killing time on the playground while brother naps in the stroller. Then it's off to swimming. Which turned into a much more eventful morning than I had bargained for.
Just sticking his head up in the rafters. JK. I think he's doing some electrical work before the ceiling is stuffed with insulation.
Leena helping Suzy Lynn wake up from nap. Sweet girls. I wish they got to spend more time together.
K Street Park (not it's real name)
Cousin-cousins riding the fire engine. So great to have family nearby to crash with and spend some qt with.
Annual tax return night out. Not as boozy as when we didn't have kids, but know we get this view across the table.
No more not strapping this guy down in his highchair. He's ready to jump ship!
First watermelon of the season and it's a messy hit! Shirtless sticky bellies all around. These three could eat an entire melon if given the chance.
They rarely look at me and "smile" at the same time when I ask them to so I'm pretty pleased with this one.
Now that's an insulated building if I ever saw one.
Practicing selfies with my new bluetooth remote. It really only worked this once. Harrumph. And trying on a cute LuLaRoe outfit. Hurrah!
Andy's gig for the day. Bike team at the NASCAR race.
