Sweet sticky boy!

While celebrating Mother’s Day at my parents’ house last night, my sister Sami snapped these pictures of Wyatt with a bright rainbow lollipop. She’s got crazy skills. If you’d like to hire her, check her out at Sami M Photography.

Party time!

n Saturday, we hosted a joint first birthday/graduation party for Wyatt and Suzi. There was so much great food, family, and friends!

Wyatt’s colors were red and aqua and Suzi’s colors were red and black so we stuck to red napkins and plates.

On Sunday, I turned 26 and everyone came over to enjoy leftovers. Look at this nifty personal pie maker my husband got me. I’m excited to discover all the possibilities!

Suzi is a graduate

On Saturday morning, we dressed up and headed down to Valdosta to see my middle sister Suzi graduate from Valdosta State University with her degree in Early Childhood Education. She is now certified to be a teacher in the State of Georgia. I hope she finds her dream job. She will be a great teacher!

We have had an incredibly busy weekend so this will be post #1 of 3. Sorry to bombard you with pictures but a boy only celebrates his first birthday one time and we wanted to do it right.

Justin surprised us with a trip to Zoo Atlanta for Wyatt’s birthday on his big day. We had a great time, even with the 15 million kids there on school trips.

Our spoiled little boy left the zoo with a stuffed tiger, a stuffed giraffe, and a t-shirt too! We had a great time and I am so glad Justin took the time and effort to plan such a fun outing for us to celebrate Wyatt’s birthday with.

Among other toys, he got a tricycle for his birthday from us. I bought some fun, yet education, Geranimals toys for Wyatt but Justin picked out a flashy red Radio Flyer tricycle that matches the wagon he got for Christmas. His little legs are still a big too short to pedal it, but he likes to sit on it and honk the horn.

He also got his very own smash cake. Justin, Wyatt, and I had our very own little birthday cake party that night.

Weekend wrap up

Wyatt had a blast at the local mall in the three-way mirrors while Justin tried on some pants.   IMG_7186 IMG_7188 IMG_7189
I think he ate at least three strawberries right out of the field when we went to pick some at Calhoun Produce.

Justin tosses him up in the air and he giggles like crazy. He actually looked like he was jumping off the roof in this one.

Wyatt was playing at the front door and I was able to snap a quick shot of his curls in silhouette. He is finally getting some hair but it is so blonde it is hard to see.

We had a great weekend but it was good to head back to work yesterday. We have a big weekend planned! Justin has a surprise for us on Friday and it’s Wyatt’s first birthday. Saturday is Suzi’s graduation from Valdosta State and their birthday/graduation party, and Sunday is my birthday. I can’t wait!
