lately at least... these two have been having so much fun playing together. blake is getting better at sharing, and he loves to make adam laugh! adam likes to follow blake around and do whatever he is doing.
they did this for a good half hour the other day...
then blake decided he wanted in.... adam wasn't so sure
yesterday we went to our first Mariner game of the season! oh how i LOVE this time of year! i'm sure anyone who has been to a game at either Safeco or Qwest knows that parking can be a bit of a challenge, not to mention more expensive than the game sometimes... so we decided to take the light rail from the airport, since jonathan parks there for free, to the stadium! did i mention that blake is obsessed with trains right now!
he was loving every minute of it... the entire walk from the car to the train he kept repeating, in his loudest voice, 'we're going to the train, the train, the train, the train.... '
i think adam was just excited because blake was so excited, but he loved it too!
a must have for our family at the games is licorice... black and red! our seats this year are on the 3rd base side, we have a great view!
it was a little chilly, but we had a great time, the kids did amazingly well (they must know how much their momma loves to go!) and the M's won 3-0!
on saturday we had a few people over to help celebrate adams first birthday! we had a great time, ate lots of food, opened some presents, and watched adam shove his face full of cake... usual 1st birthday stuff!
he got some great toys... and some LOUD toys (thanks to the conks :) that he LOVES!
some that his daddy just HAD to try out... 'come on dad, my turn'
'oh, this is fun'
'uh, maybe not'
'ok, i like it !' thanks auntie marilyn and tommy for hours of fun!
birthday cupcakes from costco (we're all still on a bit of a sugar high!)
unlike blake, who was very careful about eating his cake, adam totally went for it!
this kid did not disappoint for the camera!
but looks like its pretty well contained....
.... maybe not!
Happy Birthday Adam! We LOVE you!
on a side note, he had his 12 month check up...
dr said hes growing beautifully and was impressed with how well he's walking...
blake putting stickers on the eggs that we colored
we both had lots of fun decorating eggs
the Easter bunny came to our house on thursday, so that jonathan could be there because he was supposed to have the day off..... he ended up working, but we had already hid all the eggs, so we did it anyways! blake woke up and instead of coming downstairs as usual he saw the eggs and started in on the candy! by the time i got upstairs (probably 2 min later!) he was already eating a sucker and had a couple eggs opened searching for more. so we got adam up and opened baskets and searched for eggs! it was a little difficult convincing them that they had to eat breakfast BEFORE they could eat candy! We had a fun morning!
adam inspecting his loot
blake was pretty excited about the 'bunny rabbit' coming to his house
i dont think adam really knew what was happening, but he's always got a smile on his face!
blake got James the train... and hasn't let it out of his sight since
Jonathan and I have been married for 8 wonderful years. We are living in Seattle and have 3 amazing little boys, Blake is 6, Adam is 4, and Zac who just turned 1 is our newest addition. We couldn't be more happy with our house full of boys! Life is good!
