Chase is 1!!!! (3 months ago:P)

So I guess I really need to update our blog! It's been months and I really don't have any great excuses except, in April we had some of our favorite friends visit, had Chase's first birthday, went home to NC and IL for 3 weeks, went through promotions testing, had a sister come to stay, got a new dog, and are packing up to move into a brand new house! I think those are pretty good excuses- don't you?! Anywho- here are some updates on us- starting with Chase!!!!

On April 18, we celebrated our sweet Chase's 1st Birthday! What a first year it has been! Chase is so much fun!!! We have so enjoyed having another sweet little boy in our home! He has grown in so many ways! He still only has 6 teeth (4 on top, 2 on the bottom) He is saying a few words, Hi, Bye, All Done, Dog, please, thank you, and he tries to mimick lots of others, he is very busy and logical about figuring out how to do things. He LOVES to follow his brother around even though his brother doesn't always appreciate being followed! He LOVES to eat although  he is starting to get more picky. Probably his most favorite food is Watermelon- he can't get enough. He love to be outside and runs for the door whenever it opens. He has been a pretty amazing sleeper since he was born and still takes 2 naps a day, ranging anywhere from 1.5-2 hours each and still sleeps from 7:30pm-7AM! It has been so nice to have 1 kid that's a good sleeper! Chase is such a bright part of our home with his smiles and laughs. WE love you Chasers!!!!! Here's to another great year of watching you grow!

3 years ago

This sweet busy boy came into our lives 3 years ago on July 10, 2007. He has filled our lives with pure joy. He is now potty trained ! His vocabulary is extensive as he now tells us things are "dangerous" or "You can do it Mom!" He is very curious and asks questions like: "Mom, does the dog have elbows?" He is also so very loving, He loves to cuddle in the mornings when he wakes up and is constantly telling us he loves us. He's getting so tall! However- he's really thin and so he is still wearing some 24 month shorts- though- his pants are turning into floods:P
       He also LOVES trains! He had a Thomas birthday this year complete with a Thomas Cake, Thomas decorations, Thomas trains, cards, etc. It was a lot of fun! We love you sweet Joshua and are so glad you are ours! Don't grow up too quickly!
