Clownin' Around

Court & Lawton's Playgroup Birthday Party was a Circus theme at Lawton's Mommy's house. Silly wigs, a Circus tent, red noses & Clown cupcakes rounded out the event. The boys had a blast hanging with their buddies and Court taught Lawton a thing or two about how to properly eat a cupcake.

Happy 1st Birthday!

The Clowns of the hour.



The chaos!

Proud Mommies & their 1 year olds

Lawton getting into it....

Court already finished... looking for more!

Hard to believe this kid weighed in at the 0% for height and weight today. Its official, this Mom & Dad do not make big babies. Court got a great 1 year check up, he is just an itty bitty. Guess we need to up the cupcakes in his diet, he sure can take those down!

Birthday Fun!

Court's favorite holiday is clearly his own Birthday. What could be better than cake & presents? We celebrated his birthday with a family lunch this past weekend then Court & his good buddy Lawton (who are 8 days apart) had a playgroup party this morning. Here are photos from Party #1.

Birthday Boy in his new ride.

A red wagon!
Lucky for his sisters it is roomy enough for 3.

The family & the birthday prince.

Happy Birthday to You!

Not wasting any time.
This kid means business when there is cake around.

He could not get it in fast enough.

The aftermath... not much left!

Ready for a bath after all of that icing...
3 of the cutest bums in town if you ask me!

Playgroup Party pics to come.

In less than 24 hours Baby Court will be ONE! Where did the time go?
Its a little bittersweet.
We have been busy packing up a lot of the baby things...
and working on some big boy things.

No more bottles, check! This little guy has replaced his bottles with a tremendous amount of food. Maybe its a boy thing but I have never seen anything like it.

No more sleep sack, check! (This was only important to us because the girls were in them until they were 2+ and Harper still sleeps with Nubby (her beloved baby sleep sack). We were not going down that road again.

No more morning nap, check (99% of the time).

No more calling him Baby Court, not a chance! Court will probably be called Baby Court by everyone in our family until he is 18.

Happy Almost First Birthday Baby Court!

Imaginations Running Wild

On a whim we decided to pack up Saturday morning for a fun day at Discovery Place Kids. A little bit of a drive but completely geared at kids Tyler, Harper & Court's age so we decided to see what it was all about.... The minute we walked in I knew we would be there for hours. Such a fun day filled with lots of smiles and a place where their imaginations ran wild!

Court at the water table

Harper driving the boat, practicing up for this summer!

Tyler grocery shopping. A job she takes very seriously!

In the ambulance taking care of the patient.

Tyler checking out Daddy's blood pressure.

Picking apples.

Harper in the chicken coop!

Yep, he was in heaven! Splash, splash, splash.

The 2 monkeys in polka dots going up to the top.

Court driving the tractor.

Harper cooking up lunch.

Tyler getting in on the water table action.

Exploring the submarine.

Totally worth the 25 minute drive just to have Court happy as a clam contained in a chair for over an hour splashing to his heart's content. We will be back!
