Brent's turning one!!!

I just can't believe it! He's grows so fast. I just can't believe it's been one year since I gave birth to a fat baby boy. I've barely blinked my eyes and now he's turning one. Oh my gosh! I've learned that no matter how much you savor each and every moment, it still doesn't make the time go any slower. It still passes by you in a flash.

If there is anything in my life that I should be proud of, it's giving birth and mothering two of the most bright and spirited little human beings on this earth.

Happy Birthday, Brent. Mommy, daddy, and Ashlyn love you so so much.

Here's his birthday invitation that I created...


At the house, at sunset

We were hanging around in the backyard the other evening at sunset so I thought I'd break out the camera and play with lighting and movement.

Here's Trapper getting hosed down after a long, hot day...

And Ashlyn twirling around and playing in her "princess dress."

Some pics from the last few weeks...

Well we've been really busy, as usual, with work and everyday stuff. Brent got his first REAL haircut about 6 weeks ago. The first pics here are of him while I was trying to cuts his hair. Jade was taking the hair clippings and putting them on his upper lip....It was so funny! We all had a good laugh with that.

Ashlyn: riding her big girl bike again...Something she loves to do.
Out in the yard, messing around.

My big, slobbery, chocolate lab, Trapper.

A fuzzy picture I took with my camera phone. But hey, I got them together, and actually looking at me, so I posted it!

A different try at post processing....an old-school finish.
My sweet man at 10 months old!

Crawling away. Man! He can get on hands and feet and crab walk his way around everywhere in a matter of seconds! But now (at 11 months old), he's starting to standing up by himself and actually take 9-10 steps on his own! Not much longer and he'll be walking everywhere in a matter of seconds too, and gettting into everything!!!
