These two are cuddle buddies.
I'm pretty sure Gus was licking Isaiah's ear...he does that.
He's a weird cat.
Asher had been napping in his crib for a long while so I went to peek in on him to make sure he was doing ok. When I saw that he was happily laying in his crib wide awake, I went for my camera.
I am so blessed to have such a mild mannered, beautiful baby in my life. He makes everyday SO. MUCH. BETTER.
Ok. Get this....
I'm about to embark on what will most likely prove to be the craziest birthday party EVER!
Here's the story.
Sophia never got a birthday party when she turned 5.
Mainly because her birthday is in August and frankly, she didn't have any friends yet.
It wasn't until she started kindergarten that she actually started to make friends.
For 6 months we've been putting off throwing her a party.
First it was, "Wait until you have friends to invite."
Then it became, "Mommy is soooooo busy this fall working."
Later it was, "Mommy is so tired because your brother is about to come. Lets wait till after the baby is born."
Then it was Christmas.
Then it was, "Lets just wait until your half birthday. We'll celebrate then."
Now, finally, we are having the long anticipated party.
This wouldn't be so overwhelming except for the fact that Matias actually had his birthday last week so now we are throwing one big party for the both of them. 2 in 1= the perfect plan, right? Yeah, Im not so sure...
I printed out 35...YES 35 call me crazy...invitations and they were passed out very haphazardly today at lunch recess. I know this because I was there, watching in horror and Matias ran around to all his friends (I hope) randomly giving them invitations. I have NO IDEA who was invited. It was awkward. Mainly because I knew not everyone on the playground was getting an invitation and the LAST thing I wanted to do was to hurt anyones feelings. I didn't know how else to get these invites home though so this was how it went down. I'll admit, it wasn't my proudest moment.
Anyway, now here we are 2 days away from a party that we haven't even planned. We are totally just gonna wing it. I'm nervous. There could potentially be 35 party goers at my house for 2 hours on Saturday. Probably not everyone will come, but still, the idea of a potential 35 kids at one time is freaking me out. Steven assures me is gonna be great and tons of fun. I told him he's in charge. :)
So needless to say, wish us luck.
I will take pictures of the mayhem. Then return and report. :)
Matias turned 7 over the weekend.
I love my sweet lil' Matias so much.
He is so smart and funny. He makes me laugh all the time.Some of Matias' favorite things are:
School. He especially loves his teacher Mrs. Christensen.
His friends. Matias has A LOT of friends. Probably because he's so fun to be around.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. "Wipe my heine, Ploopy."
The Wii and video games. For his birthday he got Epic Mickey and Star Wars: Clone Wars. He loves them both! (thanks GG and Tay)
Asher. Matias LOVES Asher! LOVES LOVES LOVES him, and I cant say that enough.
Sleeping in my bed instead of his own.
Asking for a drink of milk only after he has been tucked into bed. (This is a nightly ritual that I have begun to anticipate.)
Guns, much to my chagrin.
And ever so sweetly, when I asked him this question, he responded with "My daddy and my mom." Ahhhhhh. :)
I think these shots are a nice summary of his personality right now.
He is such a ham!
