Happy Birthday Bryten!

Today Bryten officially turned 1! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. We decided to take him to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point and he loved it. His favorite thing was actually watching a waterfall (moving objects better than still).
He ended up really liking this Dinosaur you can sit on and touch.
This is a huge sea turtle that Bryten kept looking at too. We ended up letting him pick out a toy at the giftshop and he picked up a frog of all things. On the way home he kept talking to it. I still can't believe he is 1. He is getting so big.

My Little Monkey's Party!

Happy Birthday Bryten! We celebrated Bryten's birthday on Saturday with some friends and family with a Jungle Party Theme. He loves his Monkey and Crocodiles so we thought that was fitting.
We had a fabulous lady, Doree, from Ladybug Cakes & Catering do his cake. Doesn't it look like a real monkey?

Bryten was hesitant to start eating the monkey; especially after I took off its head.

Attempting to eat the cake, round 2.

Yum, tastes good.

Yay, I like cake!!
The big birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy. Brian worked really hard on the pirate ship and it was a huge success! Thank you Brian for all your hard work!!

Bryten loved walking around it. He kept making little goo noises...notice the big smile!

My Leprechaun's Day

My little leprechaun has been quite mischevious today. He first took his little red wagon (thanks Grandpa and Grandmoo) out to cruise the neighborhood for girls. Than, instead of eating his regular food, he decided to eat frogs.

To finish the day off, he decided to go on a joyride in Daddy's car.
How mischevious!

After all that mischief, he is now my little angel again....

Girls Night Out

Last night my sister, Mom and I decided to have a girls night out and see the opera "The Marriage of Figaro." We decided to be ridiculous and dress up in the same dress. We got quite a lot of stares. It was hilarious. Brian was sweet enough to let us borrow his Challenger so we could arrive in style. I love driving his car because all the guys look so angry when they realize that a girl is driving a sports car! It was so much fun and the singing was so pretty. Thank you to my beautiful mom and sister for a wonderful evening.

Bryten's Best Friends

I can't believe that I actually got a picture of this...Bryten really loves our dogs. They are seriously the best dogs! They let him do everything to them.
Bryten's favorite gym is Rusty.
The dogs follow Bryten everywhere. They are so cute; it's like they are playing "Follow the Leader."

My baby has attitude

My wonderful husband decided to teach our son how to stick out his tongue.
It makes me recall one of the earlier pictures we took of Bryten while he was still in the hospital. This baby has some major attitude!

Crazy Hair

So Bryten woke up from a nap with the craziest hair I have seen on him.
Even after lunch, it was still crazy. (Look how adorable his teeth are!)

Walking Fun

Brian and I decided to get Bryten a walking toy since he keeps trying to climb and push everything around. We went to Toys R Us and decided to get him this one.

Bryten absolutely loves it. It even came with his own purple cell phone, which makes 3 cell phones for Bryten now (one from Uncle Daniel, my old one and now this one). When he starts pushing it around, he just laughs and laughs.
