Merry Christmas Eve! and a Birthday Video

Merry Christmas Eve! It's just me and little man today as Tyler is working until 7:30, which is kind of a bummer, but I'm thankful he has such an awesome job that is one of our biggest blessings in 2012 so it's ok =) He is off tomorrow and we will cook breakfast, open presents, go to church, and relax the rest of the day....

On Saturday, Wyatt had his 2nd mini birthday party with his Grandma and Grandpa here in Texas. He was MUCH more into opening his presents this time which was SO FUN. He even tried soo hard to blow out his candles! And of course I didn't get it on video, but Gammy did so I'll have to get it from her! We just had to post this video of Wyatt opening a present from my mom... He has never reacted to a present before like this so it was just hilarious! We have watched it over and over. It's really just the beginning of the video but I uploaded the whole thing...

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all our family (and friends!) who sent gifts for Wyatt's 2nd birthday. It made it SO special for him and us! =) Love to all!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Wyatt!

Wyatt turned 2 on Wednesday! Since Tyler doesn't go into work until 11, we had a little birthday celebration with just the 3 of us that morning. (I didn't do a big party with friends this year, which I was feeling a little guilty about, but after having such a sweet, stress-free time with just us, I couldn't be happier with that deicison =) ) So, Tuesday night after he went to bed we hung up streamers on his doorframe, in the dining room and in the kitchen. I hung up a birthday banner and got him a birthday balloon. Tyler blew up about 20 small balloons that we just had on the living room floor and then we set out half of his presents for him to open (from my side of the family).
 When we brought him out of his room Wednesday morning he was in awe! He noticed and pointed to every little thing! It was so special to my mama heart. We had a little birthday breakfast and opened presents. Here's a little peek into our morning singing, "Happy Birthday" to him....

(I have a candle lit in the kitchen almost every day that he loves blowing out, but of course he didn't want to blow out his birthday candles! lol)
Teddy Bear toast
He LOVED his balloon.. he held it the entire time he ate and then it did not leave his side alllll day, too funny

 So excited

 So proud of his banner by his table =)

 The aftermath, with the tornado running through ;)
 New fridge magnets

Later in the day (and still in jammies) we watched "UP" and he sat and watched with his balloon in hand
The morning is his best time of day so we had such a sweet celebration. This boy was spoiled rotten from family so tomorrow we are having another mini birthday party with Tyler's parents and opening his presents from his side of the family!
I'll do his usual update after his 2 year Dr. appt. next week!
P.S. Our Christmas tree is having lighting technical difficulties, don't judge, HA

A Pause

I've had a couple posts in mind I've been meaning to get to and now that it is the eve of Wyatt's 2nd birthday I know I will have pictures to share over the next few days.... but I didn't feel right without at least pausing to mention the horrific tragedy that has forever changed the lives of the people in Newtown, CT. I have sat down to write about it a couple of times, but there are just not words adequate enough. I will be coming back to it though.
For now, just lifting those families up in prayer that they would feel the peace, comfort, and presence of Him Who has come into the midst of our darkness to bring hope.

Hanging on to this promise and awaiting that glorious day when He comes again.....
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever." Revelation 21:4
