Brady's 1st Year pictures

These are Brady's 1st year pictures we had taken on Saturday.

Isn't he DARLING!!!

Brady's 1st Birthday!

OK, so I have been trying to upload a slide show of Brady's 1st Birthday but for some reason the slide show that shows up is of some other people kissing and telling each other they love each other in Spanish! So I am just going to upload a couple pictures for now and until they can figure it out the slide show will have to wait.

Brady's 1st Birthday was so fun! We did a Prince theme and I wanted him to get books as gifts (because we have so many toys) so I made picture book invitations with pictures of him and a little "story" about Prince Brady, they turned out DARLING! He had a crown and I had a cupcake cake done in the shape of a crown. We had all of Brady's favorite foods: Macaroni & cheese (Megan made one, it was delicious! Thank you), Chicken fingers, Watermelon, & BB Salad.

Brady is so lucky to have so many people that love him: Grandma & Grandpa Pino, Grandma & Grandpa Blakely, Nana Pino, Great Grandma & Grandpa Dixon, Uncle Troy, Sara & Randy, Sarah, Collins, Aunt Susann & Taylor, Kyra & kids, Allred family, and the Apgar family.

We gave him a little horse & Macy gave him a little truck and a big ball. He got a ton of books and a perfect amount of toys! His favorites are the car station (from G&G Blakely) and his 4 wheeler (from Uncle Troy), & his cell phone (from G&G Pino). The morning after his birthday he just sat in the living room looking through all his books, it was really cute! He would pick one up turn a couple pages then throw it on the other side of him, until he had gone through them all. Then Macy and I sat with him and read a bunch, he loved it!

Thank you all our family and friends for making Brady's birthday so special!

Our Rock Climber

Macy and I went a fair with our friends Kristen and Taylor last Saturday, we walked the girls over to the rock climbing wall and the instructor asked Macy if she would like to try it and I couldn't believe it she said yes! He put the harness on her and she started to get scared but then he walked over took her by the hand and put her on the rope, she started to climb but didn't get very far (those walls aren't made for tiny little girls) but she was so excited and proud of herself for even getting up a little bit. Then the instructor picked her up and put her really high and she tried it again, it was so exciting to watch her be so brave! She did say the funnest part was letting go and swinging down.

Back to school

Macy went back to school last week. The first pictures of her at home was before she realized she was actually going to school that day, you can see how easily her expression changed! :) Luckily she left school with a smile on her face, unfortunately she forgot how excited she was when we took her back the next time.
