Happy Birthday to BROK!!!

He turned 1yrs old today! I swear it was just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting his arrival! We are go grateful to have him in our lives! he is just so fun!

My parents & siblings came for the weekend to celebrate his fun day with us & we had a blast! We opened presents (boy is he spoiled) & he loved it! He got clothes, toys & his new favorite thing, BUBBLES! We went out to eat at Dave & Buster's which for those of you who don't know, it's a restaurant/arcade (think Chuck E Cheese without the pizza) but for older crowds... We had so much fun & I'lll get pictures up soon! He ordered (ok we did for him) a grilled cheese & fries & ate half the sandwich & all the fries! Then they brought out a big brownie cut into 2 triangles & filled with whip cream & a candle & we sang & he dug right in! He was having so much fun! It was even more fun to watch him! He loved it!!!! Then we played games & he had major sensory overload! It was a good night! He was even happy & awake until 930 or so!

Today we had pizza for lunch & he downed a whole slice like it wasn't there & then a whole slice of his birthday cake! Of course he went straight for the frosting since it looked like fun! Needless to say he ended up in the tub! We also hunted eggs & ate some yummy candies!

I can't believe how time has flown this year! Kevin & I were talking last night about how it's been countdowns from Jan of 2007, first til he came, then til Kevin left for basic training, then til he graduated & we moved to Texas, then til we were done in Texas, til we were done & settled here & finally til he turned 1! Now my countdown is until my first doc appointment for this baby! & then it's going to be til we find out what it is, then 1yr in the AF & so on... Even though it sometimes made it go slow, it also helps us pass the time!

Thanks to everyone for everything the past year! We love & miss you all!
