Happy birthday Mr River!

See this little guy...

He's 2 years old!!!

I had my friend make this ADORABLE cake for his birthday. She asked me what I would like her to do. I told her that he LOVES trucks, cars, and planes, and that she could just do whatever she wanted with that. WELL...I have to say, she did not disappoint. It turned out so stinkin' cute!
(I love that the speed limit is "2". So clever.)

River absolutely loved his cake!...

I love this picture of Bret and River putting together his Hot Wheels track. Such boys...

I cannot believe it's been 2 years since this sweet boy came to us and changed our lives forever. We are so thankful to have him in our little family.

Happy birthday, River. We love you so so so much!!!

2 year check up

River had his 2 year check up on Friday. Dr says he looks fantastic! He went through quite a growth spurt in the last 6 months. He now weighs 27.11 lbs and is at 50% for weight, and is 35 1/2" long which puts him at 90% for height! (6 months ago he was only 20% for weight, and 55% for height.) His head is 19 1/2" and in the 80%. A growin' boy for sure!

He had to get another vaccination and a flu shot. So sad. It rips my heart apart every time I watch them poke him.

Poor baby. I spent a little longer than usual in the exam room this time. I didn't have the heart to put him down. I think he needed a little extra love from his momma...and I was perfectly happy to provide it :)

We had a wonderful Christmas!It was SO much fun watching River open his presents. He did great! I thought for sure that we were gonna have to help him out, but he just went for it! He doesn't quite understand the whole Santa thing yet, but he still seemed to love every second!...Probably almost as much as we loved watching him! :)

Indie wanted in on the action...

Took this picture of River a few days after Christmas. Turned out kinda cute, so I thought I'd share

Hope everyone had a merry Christmas!! XO


Went out in the back yard and took a few pictures of this gorgeous sight last week. It was so pretty! Complain all you want about the snow...but it sure is beautiful huh?
