Our little monster is turning one!!

Planning for Keaton's party is well underway and my mom and I are having so much fun!  Our theme is  "little monsters" and I got my inspiration from this party.  Drew and I realized that a first birthday is more about us as the parents making it through the first year...haha!  I know Keaton isn't going to remember all these details, but I love throwing a themed party and can't help myself!!  We are going to do a BBQ at our house with a few friends and family.  It should be a great day!

The invitation I got is from this Etsy shop. (I blocked out our address, because this is the Internet!)


My mom is creating monsters similar to what is on the invite and I started to get the beverage station ready!  The punch bowl is for white sangria for the adults...haha!

We are going to have an "adopt a monster" station for kids to take home and my Nana and Aunt Barbara crocheted all of these monsters!  They were so nice to make these for the kids!!

I can't wait to see all the final details come together and will post pictures after the party!

Swim lessons

We started swim lessons with Keaton back in April and he loves the water!!  We really want him to be comforable in the water since Drew and I love swiming, and the lake so much.  He was the only baby that didn't cry when we got his head wet and put his ears under water.  :)  He's our little water baby!  We took lessons for about 4 months and can't wait to start back up next summer!

My big boy!

Holy cow, I almost have a toddler and not an infant any more.  The past 3 months have flown by and my little boy is growing up!  He started walking around 9 months and now he full on runs everywhere.  My favorite time of the day is when we tell him it is bath time and he takes off running down the hall and goes to the bath tub!

He understands quite a few words now and loves saying "HI" to the dog every morning.  Penny still doesn't really like him but he loves chasing after her and trying to grab her fur.  Keaton cracks up every time she brushes by him or goes up and smells his face.  He LOVES playing outside and picking up sticks and leaves.
