We celebrated EJ's 1st birthday last weekend! We invited a few friends over for lunch and cupcakes. He was very excited about his cupcake! I made some homemade ornaments in a Cat In The Hat theme. Elliott is a very silly and inquisitive little boy. We love spending time together as a family. He is very close to walking but just not quite there yet. I think it could happen any day! I look forward to many more birthdays to come! Happy Birthday Elliott James!

At six weeks, after the infant acne had started to go away we finally got around to taking some pictures of Elliott. He's also given us a tease, sleeping from 11 pm to 6 am a night or two. Usually he wakes between 3-4 am for a feeding. Hoping he sleeps through the night consistently soon!!
As a fun project we decided to try some gardening this summer. We started by growing some green bean seeds and squash inside the house. Kellen calls them his "magic beans". We watered them everyday and waited for them to grow.
After a few weeks of growing inside, we transplanted our seedlings into the ground. Of course we had to build a cage to protect our crops from the giant domesticated squirrels that live in our neighborhood. We also planted a strawberry plant and two tomato plants. The strawberry plant produces a strawberry or two every day, just enough to be Kellen's personal stash. Looking forward to seeing if we get any veggies growing!

I've been trying to find inexpensive ways to decorate Kellen's room. We're doing everything in a baseball or sports theme. I had been looking for some pics, but they were all $25 or more a piece and just didn't want to spend that much. So I decided to make my own. For about $12, I made four baseball silhouette pictures. They look really nice. Can't wait to post pics of his room once we get everything hung up. I still have a few more DIY projects to finish first.
