Happy Birthday Drakey!!!!!

Oh my goodness I cannot believe D's birthday is here now too!!! I cannot imagine my life without this little guy in it. What an amazing surprise you were! Kyle and I cannot even begin to think what life would have been like if you were not 2 today. You are so full of love and are so snuggly and sweet. You can scream very loudly, which you are mastering when your older brother takes things away from you (which is often) but more than that,
You think Hunty hung the moon
You LOVE to be held
You love to "rock-a-by"
You love for us to kiss your boo-boos
You love riding Mimi and Da's "4-wheeler" and your plasma car
You love BIG trucks and puppy doggies
You tuck your head in when someone says Hi to you because you are so much more shy than Hunter ever was
You LOOOOVE to swing or "fwing"
You LOOOOVE to lay on Divot and Bella
You love the sand pile at Grammie and Pop's house
You love to look at books
You love babies
You can catch and throw a ball...unusually well for your age
You are dying to play soccer with Hunty during his games
Most of all you are at the center of our hearts and after you were born stretched our hearts full of love more than we ever could have imagined. A true gift from God!
Thank you for being you Drakey!
Here are a few pictures from the day you were born...

1 day old

Just one week old...look how long you were and how big your hands were!

2 1/2 weeks old you got so sick and were in the I.C.U for 4 days and in the hospital for almost a week. But you still remained off the charts!

On your 1st birthday

On your 2nd Birthday

Night Night love bug and Happy Birthday!

If you are and have a sweet tooth check this out here

I can claim's my sister-in-law!!! I think I have linked to one post before...but now you can check out a blog of just her ridiculous cakes that I would love to be able to make and eat. I only wish she were closer so she could make me a cake for Saturday! Love you E!

As a side note...guess who our midnight visitor was last night?...............

Yep, Drake crawled completely out of his crib on his own and marched right on in to our room at 1 a.m. Looks like he might be in a big boy bed earlier than we thought. He doesn't even turn 2 until Monday!!!!!

Food for Thought

My calendar that I use gives me a quote every week. I always like them, but this one struck home...especially in this economy and lifestyle right now:

"We should certainly count our blessings,
but we should also make our blessings count."

Happy Birthday Hunty!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe Hunter turned 3 blows my mind that 3 years have gone by since he was born. Hunter has so much energy, loves to be silly but also very determined (okay, stubborn and yes he gets that from me!) He also LOVES to snuggle, read books, do jigsaw puzzles, play with doggies, dance, kick the soccer ball, play in the dirt and get very very dirty, swing, run really fast, ride your plasma car, Nemo, Lightning McQueen and Thomas. Hunter also loves his little brother to pieces and is sad when he is sleeping or not with us. Hunter fills Kyle and my life with so much excitement, joy, overwhelming happiness, trials (like getting HATE to get dressed and you HATE especially to wear John-johns which we don't even bother with anymore) and you really don't like brushing your teeth either. You love playing at home and being able to stay in your jammies all day. You have started pre-school and soccer and already know about God and Jesus and being thankful. But above all you have stretched our hearts to an unimaginable size full of love. Even though you are getting so big you will always be my baby...
Here are a few pictures of your past birthdays
Right after you were born

The day after you were Armstrong no doubt!

On your 1st birthday

On your 2nd Birthday

Your 3rd birthday!

It was an action packed weekend full of fun which started Friday night at one of Hunter's best buddies, Hudson's house where his sweet mommy Lisa served little pizzas and Gigi's delicious cupcakes!

Saturday morning Hunty opened up an early birthday present from daddy (he wrapped it himself and everything!)...just beware...close your eyes Auburn fans...

Hunty ended up not wanting to wear it, but Drake did...

Drakey gave Hunty some birthday balloons when he woke up Sunday morning and they got to eat donut holes..without having to eat fruit too!!!! I know, we are getting crazy around here...

After church we had a big lunch with Mimi, Da and Nonny to celebrate

Happy Birthday my Hunty!!!! We cannot wait for your birthday party with your buddies soon! More fun to Come!
