we had birthdays to celebrate! auntie bonnie and gaga are one year wiser and that's a lot to celebrate. the boys made them each a picture and i made dinner (a wonderful enchilada recipe from our friend arja).
isaac got all dressed up for the occasion
happy birthday to two of our favorites! we love you!
as cute as asher is, he does spent a considerable amount of time with this expression on his face. it is sometimes b/c of gas (especially in the middle of the night), but mostly i think it is b/c he is hungry. at his doctor appointment monday we learned that he has put on a pound a week in the last few weeks, bringing the grand total up to 10lb 6oz. what a haas.
a lot of life has been a little bit more limited to our house lately, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun. annie chased isaac and ryder around last night, capturing these pictures as she went.
at first glance, you might not notice ryder arched over the arm of the chair, but you would be missing out big time
isaac loves to hide under ryder's crib and have you crawl under there to "eat him up"
this past saturday the boys had invitations to two different, nearly simultaneous, birthday parties. isaac is always up for a party, and ryder is always up for what isaac is doing, and asher does not really have a voice yet. it turned out to be a pretty great day overall.
ryder found the perfect opportunity to spend some time by his little introverted self. he may be an artist after all
mom julie with birthday boy bradley. he will be a big brother come august.
the absolutely amazing cake put together by sean and julie's friend janelle
all eyes on the birthday boy...well, except for ryder's.
after a 20 minute drive during which the boys recharged their batteries with a cat nap, we went to cousin soren's first birthday party. there were about 25 kids there, a true dream come true for isaac. he ran all over the joint playing in the pond, while ryder spent most of his time collecting rocks with grandma chris.
