No more mullet!!

Boston is just so funny--the other day he made me laugh so hard. I love that he can do that! Such a special little guy! Anyway!! He got his first hair cut! He had like a major mullet. I used to give him a Mohawk on top, but it was too dang long!! It seriously was like two inches tall!! Then on top of that, he had SUPER long hair in the back aka mullet. We were wanting to wait for Lacie to come up for Christmas to do it, but it was too white trash! 
It kind of curled too! I tried to get a nice shot, so don't mind my creepiness! (sp?)
It also came to a point in the front too! This hair cut was much needed!
After! Nice side shot of the no-longer mullet!

You can't see it all that well, but it's MUCH shorter on top. He looks like a little boy more baby :( 

I also just wanted to show what I was talking about in the last post about how cute Boston is when you're holding him and he turns his head and looks at you and smiles....
He does this all the time! It's Jeff's favorite thing he does...

Our BIG one year old!!

I've had so many emotions this last little while--being Boston's first birthday and all. I just can't believe my baby is already one. His birthday was last Saturday--it's just been a crazy week that I haven't gotten around to blogging! Here are some pictures on November 20, 2009!
Seconds old...

Holding him for the first time

It's so crazy how little they really are huh? AND this was one year later--November 20th, 2010!!!

My mom completely spoils him with toys...his blow up fire truck.

This could be my favorite picture of all time. He didn't sleep really well the previous night so Jeff got up with him at 5am because he wanted to play. At 7am I woke up to this...both crashed on the couch. LOVE this.

We got him this...he walks all over the house with it.

'What the heck guys??'

 Our friends gave him this, footballs, bath toys...etc!! My dad got him a way cool four-wheeler car and he loves that too! My mom got him sensory balls, this ball thing where it shoots the balls everywhere and cars. He LOVES cars. He was spoiled on his birthday!

His cake--which by the way he didn't even touch! I kinda had to smash his hand in it to make it look like he tore into it...but he didn't.

See?? Not the slightest interest in the cake. So I ate it over the next four days...:)
Our friends and family! I am so grateful for Boston...he brings so much joy in our lives it's crazy!! At one year Boston weighs 22.5 lbs and is 31 inches tall. 50th percentile for weight and 90th for height (go figure :) Some funny things Boston does--when he wakes up he jumps in his crib and that's what wakes us up, when I do my make up he steals the brushes and crawls around with them almost all day, he loves flowers, loves cars and pushes them around using one finger, loves when the dishwasher is open, says dada (not sure if he knows what he is saying, but when we work with him, it sure sounds like he is trying to say it), takes off in church for the doors, and plays with the stoppers (which are LOUD), has 10 teeth (two molars), loves playing the kids, loves when you chase him, when you make an ugly face at him--he'll try to do it back by scrunching his nose and showing his teeth (it's soo funny), loves being thrown in the air, has taken 3 steps, is SOO fast at crawling, pushes everything around (chairs, highchairs), isn't that great at eating :/, hates when Jeff leaves, BUT crawls to him the second he walks in the door, when you're holding him--he tilts his head and looks right at your face, pushes his nose into your nose, won't take a sippy cup, loves milk and he is still terrified of the vacuum. We love our little guy.

I just can't believe...

...that in ONE week, my little baby will be one year old. I'm sure every mom goes through this. He is just turning into a little toddler...he learned how to give kisses today {wet, but so cute}. This is me a year ago...
HUGE right? 
And this is now...
Makes me slightly emotionally thinking about how big he is. I'm really excited too because Jeff and I got him such a fun birthday's like a car/buzz light-year thing. Way cool--got it at Costco. Here goes to the last week of my baby being a BABY!

It's been super busy around here but I wanted to share our trip this past weekend! We visited Kristy (Jeff's sister) and the family in Portlan. It was extra special because Jeff's parents flew in from Utah and it was a party! This is a first, but I didn't take many pictures...oops, but I have a few.

Okay, how funny right? On the drive home he was SO tired. He fell asleep like 10 minutes after this. The next pictures are so fun. I took a few picture for our friends for family pics (I used her camera and everything--she's a pro photographer), and we took some pics of the little dude.

There is a story being told here...he's wondering what these "leaves" are.

Oh my gosh! I figured it out!

My favorite

And like I said before, it's been soo busy! My little Etsy shop is doing great, and I'm busy. This is what my life consists of...

Life is great here! T-minus 11 days until Boston's FIRST birthday!

Simply Perfect

So guys--I've been really wanting to make and sell crafts for a loooong time, and finally I had the guts to do it. I set up an account on Etsy. It's a really cute/vintage/handmade store online where everyone can sell or buy things. Here are some things I've made.
Countdown blocks to Christmas--I may have an obsession with polka dots.

Puzzle picture blocks--I used six pictures of Boston as a newborn.

More countdown blocks--more vintage looking.
"I Believe" blocks

 Another picture of the puzzle blocks

"Wish" blocks

This is now where these reside...for now :) I'm having so much making these. Slowly but surely I'll make more!
