Today was cowboy/cowgirl day at Arabelle's school. They were studying the letter C this week. Here is our cowgirl!
She was saying "Yee Haw!".

Editing to add this photo comparison from the same day last year. I love putting photos side by side and seeing how they grow and change!

Arabelle and Bo's Birthday Party

Arabelle's birthday isn't until 9/20, but we wanted to combine their parties to make it easier on family traveling and on us! Arabelle asked me several times on Saturday if she was 3 yet. We will have a little party at her pre-school on her birthday.

Everyone enjoyed the big slide, pools, and side walk chalk. We had pizza, fruit, & veggie trays, & delicious cake. It was a great time and thank everyone for coming!

Our soon-to-be 3 year old!

Arabelle enjoyed going to the library this summer for story time. Our neighbor, "Miss" Sue and her great-grandson took her on Tuesday afternoons.  Here are a few pictures that the librarian took and had posted on their website.

Bo got another haircut last night! His hair won't part either way and won't lay down, so it was time for a cut. I love his hair short!

Bo is 12 months old!

Bo, you are a year old! I can't believe it. It is definitely true when they say "The days are long, but the years are short.".

  • You are an active boy! You are starting to try to run after Arabelle and climbing some now.
  • You love to play with your cars and throw balls.
  • You are babbling a good bit. In addition to the "mama" and "dada", you started babbling "gaga" this week. You definitely make your wants knows with your babbles and pointing!
  • You have 5 teeth now (3 on top and 2 on bottom). 2 more are about to break through though.
  • Some of your favorite foods now are green beans, string cheese, bananas, grapes (cut, of course) & strawberries. 
  • You are still nursing 4x/day and 0-1 times at night. We are going to try some milk in a cup soon!
  • You take 1-2 naps/day. I would like you to take 2 naps and stay up a little later in the evenings, but some days you just want one and end up going to bed at 6 pm. :) You have started waking at 6:00 in the morning, no matter when you go to bed. 
  • You are such a sweet boy, Bo. You like to give hugs and kisses when we ask you to "love" us. 
  • We have had a wonderful year with you and thank God that he has blessed us with such a sweet little boy!
