D's : BIRTHDAY what a day it was we had a great turn out of wonderful friends and family. D got tons of presents even though no one was supposed to bring them and he had a blast. Loved is cupcake and ate the entire thing. The first bite was tentative and he looked at us like can I really have this?! But it didn't take long before he tore it up. A couple of other great moments were when is great aunt Jeri played his birthday song which was "we have to fight for the right to party"! She's nuts but he loved it, next year there will be video of him dancing to it. He got a ROMO jersey from his daddy which he loves and a cool push/ride on cars car from his uncle Chris. Plus shoes and clothes and toys galore and oh, aunt Jeri also got us a car that makes noise and yeah it doesn't have an off button. who's genius idea was that? The kids splashed in the water and i did a life size cutout of Aliza (our dear friends daughter) because she couldn't be there and it freaked so many people out but she made it around in lots of pictures and appeared to have a blast the whole night! So here's a handful of pictures from his first birthday. If you check out my sister-in-laws blog there is a little video of D dancing with his uncle Chad, it's about two or three post down. Enjoy.

Love this next picture, the 3 cousins : Ella, Dealey & Ethan (he's snoozing in the background)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.....not to steal D's thunder or anything but it's my birthday and it seems on your birthday you're supposed to take time to reflect on your life where you've been and what you hope for in the future. And besides this is my blog, not Dealey's despite his clams to ownership. So I'm 29. Yeah it's been 29 years since I graced this planet and while I've never been sure of my purpose here I suppose I have accomplished quite a bit and should feel good about those things. I don't know what the future holds for me and honestly I don't know if I care. I think we all get to those moments where we're good to just live each day. I'm at that moment where the future does nothing but frustrate and exhaust me and honestly I don't know if I'm up for it. So today is happy 29th tomorrow is....I don't know.

12 months & on the dealey's not walking yet though he's taken a few steps on his on. he is always moving, climbing, crawling and coasting. I'll have more of an update later but I wanted to get his 12 month bumbo posted.

on the rachel front, I had my lumbar puncture today and it went pretty well, we do not know much yet but will have a follow up with the dr later this week. i'm at home resting and taking pain meds to ease the discomfort. I'll keep the blog updated as I find out more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEALEY! i can't believe our little man is a year old! I have tons of pictures from his party to share but that'll be another post. I also have his 1 year bumbo picture I'll try to upload that later this week. As happy a week it is in Dealey's world it's a bit grim for me. I have a lumbar puncture scheduled for tomorrow morning that will hopefully alleviate the pain and pressure I've been living with. happy 29th to me huh? Here's a sweet picture of our little man in the pool, one of his most favorite things to do.

halloween in may : a little spider tale This isn't some great story but here's the deal. I stupidly bought a halloween costume last october not knowing how my kid would grow and I got a 12-18 month. If logic pertained to kids it makes sense he'll only be 16 months in October so surely it would fit right? Well as he grew and we realized at 9 months when he was wearing 12-18 month clothes this was definitely going to be a problem. So I made a mental note that as summer came we were going to have to try it on at some point and get pictures because there is no way he'll be wearing it for halloween.

We were all playing in his room one afternoon and I glanced at his closet and noticed the spider costume, I looked at Matt and told him we should try that on him and take pictures if it fits. It looks so huge on the hanger but in fact it fit him quite well a little baggy in the legs because he's skinny but length wise fit him pretty perfect. Dealey was no amused even a little that we were trying to put him in this strange out fit with parts sticking off of it, but he was a good sport and you'll see, he even at the end of it was still offering the camera his sippy cup.

He did make a cute little spider, now I have to find a new costume. This one is for sale if anyone wants it ($10), only worn once for about 15 minutes!
I wonder size he'll actually be wearing in October, we'll see. My guess 18-24 but I could be wrong as we've already begun to buy and wear that size now granted they're a little big but not by much.
Since I'm writing I'd thought I'd do a little Dealey update while I'm at it. He turns one in just under a week, which is so cool. He currently has 5 teeth on top coming in all at once, it's been a joy :oO. I got him this little play cell phone so he'd leave mine alone (works every once in a while) and he loves to pick it up and he will sit in the floor and have a full on conversation with no one, it cracks me up and of course he's speaking some crazy language so that makes it all the more interesting. He climbs on and over everything. I do think he looks for the toughest route sometimes and choose to take it. He is moments away from walking he's down to holding one hand and is very steady when he is on his feet. He's stood alone a few times when he excitedly grabs a toy with both hands. One thing I'm totally fascinated by is how he has figured things out. How they work how things go in things, the opening of the cell phone and holding it to his ear, grabbing the remote for the tv and pointing it at the tv while pushing multiple buttons at one time. We didn't teach him these things he just...figures them out.

We're having a big birthday party for him this weekend so I'll have lots of pictures to post after that, which will include some shots of our backyard looking so pretty which we are so excited about and the renovated guest bath which looks gorgeous!
Now the spiddy pics!
