Happy 2nd Birthday Connor!

Connor's birthday was on Sunday. Me, Daddy, Sissy and Aunt Heather went to the waterpark and had a lot of fun. Then we came home and had cheesecake to celebrate the day. Cousins, Ashley, Jimmy and Aunt Ge-Ge came over and we let him open a few gifts, then went to the playground. Here's a video of us singing Happy Birthday. I love at the end when daddy asks "What is that" and he says " Ceek... Ceek" for cake.

Also pic's from the playground.





His party was Monday at Chuck E Cheese. We only invited a few of his little friends this time instead of having a big blow out like we did for his 1st birthday. It was a lot of fun. We had a cake made like one my friend had made for her son's 1st bday and it was WAY more cake than we needed. This thing was HUGE! See the pic's of it before and after we ate it. LOL


He got lots of new toys and luckily mommy had a yard sale last wknd to get rid of some of his old stuff to make room for the new! lol

I just can't believe my baby is 2 already! I got very emotional when Chuck E Cheese and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Connor. I just stood there (video taping) thinking about where we were 2 years ago. At the time of his party, we were almost to Tulsa, OK to go meet and hold him for the first time. He had been born the night before and we drove 17hrs to get there without any sleep and were pumped up on pure excitement and anticipation waiting to meet "our" new son! Connor is my miracle son because he's brought so much joy into my life and I was thinking again yesterday how Thankful I am that his biological mother chose to give him to us. She called today to see how things were going and to let us know she'd been thinking about Connor. I love that we keep in contact with her still after 2 years. I hope it continues on.

Ok on a lighter note...I have a cute and funny video to share of Connor feeding Lilly. You have to watch the whole thing. The end cracks me up!Below it are a couple pic's of him feeding her and the aftermath!



Here are the video's from Chuck E Cheese


Also want to add some cute pictures of Lilly in her bathing suit and at the water park about a month ago and some of Connor in his big boy undies that I bought him to start thinking about the potty training thing. I wanted to try them on him and he looked so cute in them. lol Also the Chuck E Cheese pic's.

















These were taken this morning. He was enjoying left over cake after breakfast and playing with his new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Connor and Lilly Videos

Here's a video of Connor playing his great great grandfather's guitar. He loves the "A-tah" and flips out everytime we see them in the store. We always have to walk by them for him to see them. He might just follow in Papaw Hicks and cousin Jimmy's footsteps afterall.



Here's a funny video of Lilly doing her business while eating. Ohhh she feels so good afterwards. ha ha She made room for more food in her tummy!



This summer is going by so fast. We've been to the waterpark a couple times and Lilly absolutely loves the water! Connor isn't as thrilled about it but is getting better. I will eventually post some pic's of them swimming when I download them from the camera. Lilly is 4.5mos old now and eating all kinds of fruits and veggies. She's up to the stage 2 meals now. She had her 4 mos immunizations a couple weeks ago and weighs 13lbs, 13.5oz and was 24.5 inches long. She is changing so much and loves to talk and can roll over already from her back to her belly. She loves to grab at toys and is constantly chewing on her fist and fingers.

Connor is talking more and more and now says the names of vehicles instead of just "ridin". He names animals that I didn't even know he knew what they were. He is always amazing me. He likes to climb in Lilly's exersaucer (which used to be his). Then he says he's "tuck" for stuck. He makes me laugh at the funny things he says and does.

Hope you enjoy the videos!
