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.
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!
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.

The family & the birthday prince.
Happy Birthday to You!
Not wasting any time.
This kid means business when there is cake around.
Sweet, sweet Court. You are ONE today. You melt our hearts each & every day with your precious smiles. From the moment we laid eyes on you we were smitten and head over heels in love with you. We knew from the minute we held you that you made our family complete. We love you Baby Court.
A look back at your smiles this year....
Love at first sight.
One week old. Already smiling.
Here is to a lifetime of smiles & happiness with you.
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.
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!

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!
Our sweet one year old boy! He is the spitting image of his Daddy and holds his Mommy's heart in his little hands! His laugh is contagious & he always has a smile on his face. Our laid back 3rd child & the final piece to our crazy family.
Our firstborn (by 2 minutes!), she is our sensitive girl. She loves acting silly and inherited some of her Daddy's dance moves. She can often be found drawing or painting and has her Mommy's creative spirit. With her sweetness & lap cuddles she brings constant joy to our lives.
Our second daughter, she is our curious girl. She is always singing and putting on a performance. She is our funny girl that is always up for a good time. Her adorable spunk and free spirit bring smiles to our faces every day.
