Boston took his 1st steps on February 10th and he has been doing 5 or 6 here and there since then, but this past Sunday he decided he was going to start walking across rooms like he was growing up or something :( *Sorry for the glare form the sun at first!
Today Trey had his 1st swim lesson on his own!!!! I LOVED not having to go in lol and so did he! At first I figured he would cry when he realized I couldn't come in the room with him, but he could not have cared less--he just wanted in the water--it probably helped that Layla was there too! Of course the teacher said he is a dare devil with no fear of water--which is exactly why he will be in these lessons til he knows how to swim 100%!! Every time she dunked him he come up with a smile, and she even pushed him down to get a ring that was on a step. I was actually pretty shocked at how well he listened to her directions too- when it wasn't his turn they were to stay on the side and he did it!!! This was his face the entire lesson Layla & Trey about to go under Kick Kick Kick Reagan giving Boston a hug--Rylie was over having a gymnastics class at the same time Since they did so good at their 1st lesson we took them to get frozen yogurt after!
So Trey had a hip hop class today with Layla--it was 1 word HILARIOUS!!! It took Trey a minute to warm up to the idea of what they were doing, but by the end he got it. I would say his favorite was break dancing lol which I did not even know he really could try and do. Guess what the teachers name is??? Miss Hollywood lol-yes I am being serious that's what they are suppose to call her! The class is 2-5 year olds I believe. One of the funnier moments was when Layla went up to the teach asking for some "bayber beyber" I believe is how she said it which was Justin Bieber music lol!! I don't know why he felt the need to stand in front with Miss Hollywood lol My son also LOVES looking at himself in the mirror lol Notice his arms in the folded "thug I'm cool" position--this too was his favorite move!
Let's see--I believe back in September is when I finally committed to the race car theme for Boston's birthday party lol. It was fun to plan and it makes it sooo much easier to work on when you have multiple months to do things lol!!! I can already tell that Boston is going to be able to have way more options for his parties because of the time of year he was born compared to Trey. Now since I made such a huge TA DA for Trey's 1st birthday it was only fair that I do the same for Boston! There was an elaborate dessert table, a big bouncy obstacle course, a winners circle where the cake eating took place, amazing food, & tons of friends and family--what more could you ask for to celebrate your 1st year of life?? I have to say that I used my silhouette for a HUGE chunk of all the things I made for his party--his party hat, high chair banner, cupcake holders, candy signs, and to cut out stuff I had printed like the thank you tags and cupcake toppers--I can not imagine my life without it lol!!!! So originally his party was suppose to be outside but of course the one day it rains and is freezing would be the party day--luckily my dad so graciously let us invade his office and move the party there. I needed somewhere with super tall ceilings because of the huge bounce house! Luckily we have amazing friends and family and everyone was fine with the move--all 80 people lol!!! So besides a few decorating things I didn't get to do from moving it inside all was perfect! The dessert bar Each cupcake had a 3d checkered wrapper and a little sign in it--LOVED them! These SUPER cute cookies were the favors and were tied to hot wheels
Marshmallow Pops--Thanks Aunt Kristin for baking the day away with me I know you love my boys like they were yours!!! Boston's personal cake The Room LOVED his cake Big bro in his Pit Crew shirt I know I am biased but I LOVE his eyes! Walking to Aunt Shanel MiMi and Boston My shirt said Hot Rod Mama--made with my silhouette Is he not the cutest??? His shirt had a checkered 1 and his name Poppie and Boston--THANKS Poppie for letting us invade your office!! Ellison & Boston These 3 are super close in age--they were having a pot luck on the ground Boston seriously LOVES him some Layla!!!! He never hugs anyone lol like not even me like this! He had no prob diving into his cake! This really was his own private victory circle! banner and hat made by me cuz I love my little man soooo much!!!
