I Was There

I can hardly believe it has been another year......

My sweet Bubba boy turned two in May and it went by so quickly I didn't have a chance to sit and reflect on the occasion.

Until I went through the past year's pictures and I realized how much he had experienced in this short year.

Like walking......
 this little guy tried over and over to walk...ending up on his head most of the time.  and then one weekend at the lake.......
 he did it!  and he was so proud.....
 and spent the whole summer perfecting that walking......
Bubba didn't care much for the pool....
 but he LOVED playing in the water.....
and who wouldn't love taking a bath in the sink, splashing all that water around?
 well, most of the time, he liked water, except when it would "jump" up and do this!
 Bubba is a very curious boy.  Loves to get into any little nook & crany he can fit into, like my cabinet.
 or my drawers......
 he really loved this cabinet for a few months....
 even found a place at the lake to crawl into.....
 one thing this momma can't stand.....Bubba is NOT a cuddler and the older he got, the worse it became.
sorry Grandma.....
 This year, Bubba experienced many "firsts"
first time on a ferry....
 first time on a beach...
 first time trick-or-treating...
didn't he make an adorable vampire?
 and he certainly loved his first sucker....
 but didn't quite enjoy his first time in the snow...
 one thing became increasingly apparent this year:
bubba idolizes his older brother...
 wants to always be hanging out with him, even wanting to be a part of his Cub Scout meetings, much to Brody's chagrin.
but I know it's the start of an incredible relationship.....

 Adding Bubba to our lives has completely changed our family dynamics and we couldn't be happier.  He brings so much laughter and smiles to our house - we have had so much fun seeing him grow up this year.  And I was there, seeing every smile, experiencing every challenge (cause 1 years olds are!) and receiving every hug (when I could get them).

and this is only the first half of the year...

more to come....

He's so adorable. What an eventful year!

His reaction to snow is very similar to mine...

I love him, I love him, I love him even more. (It would make me nuts that he isn't a cuddler though, because that's all I'd want to do.
