Well, we did it! One year! Yesterday was Truett's actual birthday but today was his party! Both days were 'filled with fun and surprises!' (as the book says). Last night we had a special visit from the Rawsons. We went to dinner at 333 since they weren't able to be at the party today. (Those Rawson kids are busy playing ball again! (see here for Sydney's big news)
Truett did exactly what I was afraid he would do, got up a little earlier than normal and was so TIRED during the party. BUT he endured and had a great time playing with his cousins!
Thanks everybody for making it such a special day!
I had a fun time thinking up and making all kinds of things for his party (the invitation, wreath, mailbox decor, both of his birthday shirts, cupcakes that we haven't eaten yet, and a display of pictures of him from every month so far — see in the birthday cake pictures)
It's hard to believe we've made it through a year already. But what a year of blessing it has been!
Truett, you have taught your mom and dad a lot. I am better at time management, prioritizing and loving you today more than I was a year ago. I wondered what it would be like to share our birthdays so close, but it's been a lot of fun actually. I look forward to the years to come. We'll have fun sharing the whole week together and letting Daddy spoil us!
Enjoy some pictures from Truett's 2-day birthday ...
He loved it!

a little teased by all the singing but not the attention
Wilkes wants some too!

Today you weigh around 25 lbs.
You love Nilla, wafers, crackers, fruit, chicken nuggets, and LOTS of milk.
You don't care much for veggies these days.
You have several teeth cutting through.
You're finally getting your front teeth.
You love to be sweet. Loving on us after you get in a little trouble for swatting at us is too cute!
You love playing with Blue as long as she doesn't get in your face.
You're the happiest baby we could've ever asked for! We love you, big boy!
We can't wait to get to know you a little more this year!!
