Happy 3rd Birthday, Michael!

Michael turned 3 yesterday!  When you ask him how old
he is, he responds "I hold my fingers like this and I'm 3."
He was so proud of himself when he was able to
hold down his pinky with his thumb to show 3.
We had lunch at Romanelli's and
pizza & cake for dinner to celebrate!
Michael's gift from us.

Growing up right before our eyes!
Since we have had several celebrations over the past month
with lots of cake, we decided to make a rice krispies treat
birthday cake.  Michael requested a rocket ship, like Mickey's,
and was a big help making it!

the favorite gift from Mom-mom & Pop-pop....Pat the Rat

Stay tuned for more pictures next week after
his birthday party with friends & family

Happy 1st Birthday, Brendan!

We celebrated Brendan's birthday on Saturday which was 
his actual birthday! We cannot believe a year has already
passed.  Brendan is not yet walking, but he cruises
along furniture and stands for a few seconds.
He says 'Mahm', "Dada', 'hi', 'puh' for please with sign, as well
as the signs for more and all done.  He loves to imitate
sounds that Michael makes!
Brendan received some birthday wishes over the phone

For his party, we had our music teacher come for
a musical celebration since Brendan loves music class.
Hence, the drumsticks, drum cake, and microphones

Brendan's smash cake before and...

first taste

After the party and nap time, Brendan opened all of his
great gifts.

Thank you to all who helped us celebrate~
we had a great day!
