I know it's been a while since I've posted, but if you read my other blog or fb you know that we've been busy! Busy celebrating Christmas then Prestons birthday and then my birthday-this year I turned 30!!! It's kind of shocking that time just keeps moving as swiftly as ever, another year has passed. I can't believe that I have a 2 year old! I remember so vividly, like it was yesterday being pregnant, then being in the hospital and so on. As I was looking at my 2009 calendar remembering the year it seems like it was just yesterday that I was writing things down, milestones, Dr's appointments etc.-it is almost 1 year later and doesn't seem like time has passed at all, how can that be? Time, I just don't understand you. What makes you go fast and what makes you go slow?

On Wednesday December 30 I was very aware that this was the last day my "baby" would be 1. I thought about it all day. As I rocked him to sleep that night I thought, this is the last time I will rock him as a one year old, tomorrow he will wake up a 2 year old. As he slept Dave and I just stared at him. They same kind of wonder, and marvel like when he was just a newborn. That "awe" hasn't gone away and I don't imagine it will. I have a hunch he will continue to amaze us his whole life.

Preston at 2:

I am sure there is more, I will add to this list as I think of things:)

How we celebrated the big 0-2.
On his actual birthday we went to Jump N Bounce with the Weavers and then out to lunch at Rons. The next day we had a family party. Dave made a delicious clam chowder along with salad, rolls, and lots of goodies. Preston got a wagon, scooter, puppy bank, tools, train set, and trucks. With his birthday right after Christmas Preston is set for the year! Here are a few pictures.


  1. happy birthday 'buddy'!! :) i LOVE that puppy bank, the exact same one i was thinking of getting miley - she LOVES dogs THAT much! :) sounds like you all had an awesome time celebrating! great cake

  2. Love the cake. Sawyer is all about guitars (and drums) too. Maybe they can get together and jam sometime? Great photos, so cute.

  3. looks like he had a great birthday! That cake is amazing, did you make it? I am so impressed. Levi likes to play daddy's guitar, but he really likes to play his harmonica. Aren't they at such a fun age?
