We have had a busy weekend!

Friday night Kellyn and Brooke came over to visit.  Kellyn brought us ribs and said she wanted to see her favorite 1 year old one more time before he turned 2.  Kellyn went to help me pick out an outfit for our family pictures and Jamie sent us both this pic!
Hey... at least they were having fun!

Saturday, the 13th, was Nicks actual birthday.  I woke up early and made a big breakfast.

We sang Happy Birthday to him and put a candle in his chocolate chip pancakes!
Then we opened presents from mom and dad!

He loves his Lightning McQueen car that lights up and talks and his Lightning McQueen pillow pet!

Jamie was sick so Kellyn, Brooke, Nicklas and I packed up to go visit Pupol, it was his birthday also!
Aunt Debbie, Kendyl and McKayla also came to visit the birthday boys!
Debbie was nice enough to take us all out to eat.

Every single one of them will probably get mad at me for posting these pics but don't I have a good looking family! :)
After eating we had an impromptu photo shoot outside of the restaurant.

Brooklyn loves these girls so much!

The birthday boys... 2 of my favorite.  I remember being so excited when I woke up on the 13th 2 years ago having contractions! ha!
(Also check out Nicks shoes that Debbie, Kendyl, and McKayla got him... they light up!)

Debbie, Kendyl, and McKayla,
Thanks for coming to visit and for making Nicks birthday so special.  We love ya'll!

Sunday evening we met our favorite photographer in Tryon to take our annual family pictures.  She sent me a sneak peak!

I just can't handle the cuteness.  I am so thankful for a patient and talented photographer!!
Thank you for all you do Chandi!

That evening we decided since it was late to pick up a pizza and have a picnic in the living room.

Monday morning Nicklas wore one of his new shirts he got at his birthday party, we sent this pic to Lindsey... she got it for him!

Last night we turned on A Bug's Life....

Someone really enjoyed it.

Mommy and Daddy are so blessed.  2 years ago you made us a family and we couldn't be happier.  We love you so much.  You are funny, sweet, smart and handsome.  You make us proud every single day.  Your smile makes our day and lights up a room.  You are so loved by so many.  
Happy 2nd birthday sweet boy.
Mommy and Daddy 

So now on to some not so good news.
Last week when I picked up Nick at school his teachers told me that they don't think he is hearing the way he should.  That he may not be hearing certain pitches.  I some what knew he was behind on his speech and talking but I thought it was due to him being a boy...  I decided to go ahead and call his doctor and they referred us to and ENT.  This Friday he has a hearing test and his 2 year old shots.  Have any of you other moms encountered something like this?


  1. Looks like a great time and those sneak peek pics are great! Keep us updated with the hearing tests. I will be thinking of you guys!

  2. Happy birthday little dude! He is so adorable! Love the update! What a great year! Cheers to the next one!
