Emersyn’s 1st Birthday

I can’t believe Emersyn’s birthday has come and gone! I now have a 1 year old little lady.

We had so much fun celebrating Emma yesterday with family. I think she had a lot of fun, I am so thankful that Grant’s parents and sister and my mom and sister were able to come to town and help us celebrate. Emersyn seemed to enjoy all the attention. She also loved all the party decorations, especially the flowers!

I am especially proud of the birthday cake I made for her. After my two children, I’m pretty sure it is the best thing I’ve ever made ;). It was dairy and egg free, and tasted delicious! I will post her 1 year update soon, but for now here are a few pictures from her party!

 

 

Randsom Turns 3

Please forgive my lack of posts the last two weeks. We were on a family vacation back to the Midwest to visit family. It was so much fun and I will have lots to share about that another day. But today I want to share something that happened yesterday…

Randsom turned 3!

He woke up to balloons in his room, which he loved! It was hard to sneak those in after he fell asleep the evening before, but somehow I managed not to wake him up!

He requested pancakes for breakfast, so obviously that is what he got! I included sprinkles, because its not really a birthday unless you have way to much sugar.

We let him open a few of his presents in the morning because we had plans to be gone all day. He loved the Avengers wrapping paper so much that it took a little convincing to get him to rip open the paper. But once he did, he loved all his presents!

Next we loaded up for a long drive to the big city! We headed to the Children’s Museum where we stayed and played for several hours!

We stopped for a quick lunch before heading over to the park. We saw ducks and geese, ran around, and enjoyed playing on a huge slide. Randsom was getting pretty tired (he woke up extra early!) so we decided to head back home soon after that.

When we arrived home, we played with his new birthday toys and I made pizza for dinner. We enjoyed birthday cake, which was followed by a much needed birthday bubble bath!

Overall, I think Randsom had a very special day. It was hard for this mama not to be sad that I couldn’t throw him a birthday party, but we just don’t know that many people here yet. Maybe next year I will be coming at you with a big birthday bash.

We are so blessed to have this little man in our family! I can’t believe that 3 years ago he was born via emergency c-section, and we didn’t know what his future would be like. He has amazed us every day with his intelligence and gentle spirit. So thankful that I get to be his mama!

Blessings,

Mommy Little
