I know it has been way to long since i have updated my blog. I don't know how some of you do it? I feel like sometimes between life, being a mom, wife, and my job there is no time in the day for one more thing. I really am so impressed with people who can do it all:) I'm back now and i'm going to try and do much better and not go so long again.
We took Leo bowling for his first time a couple of weeks ago. He did pretty good. He loved rolling it down the ramp. It was fun watching him and the look on his face. I think the best Rhett and I both did is when we let Leo bowl for us instead. Were not the most talented family when it comes to bowling, we'll just leave it at that :)
Bath time is Leo's favorite time of the day! He is just like me:) He loves relaxing, playing, and splashing in the hot water. We usually will blow bubbles while he is in the tub. It is so cute. He will use his finger and everytime he touches one he will say "POP" and then laugh. I have to say that i LOVE snuggling him and kissing him when he is out of the tub all clean with lotion on and his cute footie pj's. I look forward to it every single night
My little sister Ari had her beautiful baby girl on 08/29/10. They named her Alivia Joy Rowland. She is seriously one of the most beautiful babies i have ever seen. My middle name is Joy after my Grandma Joyce. I love that i get to share my name with her. My family and I drove up to Idaho that morning and got to be there when she made her grand enterance. I'm so excited for Ari and Andy to get to experience parenthood. It is the hardest most rewarding job there is. I'm so in love with this new little girl. I can't wait to watch her grow and I love that Leo has a new little cousin to play with. Oh my...did i mentionn she has the cutest chubby cheeks. I wanna kiss them all day long:)
We had such a fun summer! I can't believe that it's over and fall is here. We loved going swimming with our family, riding on the boat, and watching fireworks and parades. We also had a few fun trips to the Zoo! Leo loved seeing all of the animals. I wish i would have been better about getting my camera out and taking more pictures but i did get a few:)
Leo turned 1 on the fourth of July! I'll i can say is we had a HUGE birthday bash! It was so much fun! We had tons of friends and family that came up to help us celebrate! We had a BBQ at the park by our house. We rented blow up houses/slides for the kids to play on, had tons of yummy food, and had fireworks to end the day! Leo LOVED his cake! It was so funny watching him eat it:) He seriously could'nt get it in his mouth fast enough!
Dear Leo Man,
I can't believe how fast one year flew by. Your dad and I love you more than words can say. You are so smart and funny. We love to watch you learn and discover new things all the time. You have such a funny personality. You are VERY independent and like to figure things out by yourself. You started walking around 9 1/2 months so by the time your birthday came around you were running all over the place. You LOVE your dad and follow him everywhere. You also really LOVE his mustang! We put you in the drivers seat and you pretend your driving while honking the horn. You get very mad when we try to take you out. You are also a very good eater. You love pretty much everything. You also really like Elmo and could watch it for a long time. You love to dance, your favortie song is Intergalactic (Beastie Boys)! I love coming in and getting you out of your crib in the mornings. You always have a huge smile on your face and are ready to run in and out of every room when i put you down. I love your excitment for life! We couldn't imagine our life without you! You make your dad and i happier than you'll ever know! Love you baby!!
