For those of you who don't know, Truett and I almost share our birthdays! I went into the hospital the night before he was born. So, it makes for a wild month and week at our house. Bless our daddy's heart! He is amazing at making us both feel special!
It all started Thursday with our play date which happened to be our time to host! So, we had a little party since Case also shares a birthday with Truett (the same day). We played outside, had cupcakes on Toy Story plates (of course) and played some more!
Then, Friday was my day! Ryan being the sweet man he is, took the day off! So, I got to go on a morning run all by myself and then we enjoyed a nice lunch at Carmella's (a local Italian pizzeria-so yummy). Ryan's mom and dad arrived that afternoon and we had birthday dinner at 333 Restaurant. Truett loved having his Bebe and Pops at his house! It's so funny how Pop and Pops' get the prize for Truett's undivided attention when around.

Wake up Baby it's your special day...a day fill with fun and surprises!
My parents always said this line from a childhood book every birthday morning when I was a kid.
I can't believe our little man is TWO!! What a year it has been! Truett has grown into such a little boy over the past 6 months. I see more every day why people tell you children are so great!

Truett, you are such a blessing. We love to watch you run around the house because you're so proud you can RUN! We love your sweet forehead kisses, hugs with a little grunt to let us know you're really trying, high fives after our blessing prayer, you LOVE Toy Story and can quote all THREE, you are funny about what you eat...not much, you love 'scuckers', and more and more. You're little personality is coming out more every day and it's too funny! You are a character trying to act like you're hiding when you close one eye.
We love you more than you will ever know! IT'S TIME TO PARTY!!!

FOUR years ago, I gave Ryan the sweetest pup! He grew up with sweet Cookie as a kid and always talked about how much he loved Golden Retrievers! So, 10 days before we married, I surprised him with BLUE!! What a sweet girl she is! She LOVES Ryan and even more now that she doesn't get AS MUCH attention with someone else to compete with.
Though she drives me a little crazy sometimes, I'm not sure what we do without ole Blue! Truett loves her and I can only image that will get more fun as they both get older!

I can't believe I've gotten so behind on the Berry life since October. I guess KBcreative took over for a while. So, I'll just start where we are now and go backward.
It's February, and Truett is almost TWO!!! Did you hear me?? TWO!!! I can't believe it! I was walking today thinking about how it stinks I didn't blog over the past 3 months because our little man has become quite the character and is so fun! His obsessions, quirks, likes, dislikes, favorites, etc. are all so entertaining and sometimes TRYING!
Maybe that's another reason I'm a little behind!
We've been a little busy chasing an almost TWO year old.
