Tomorrow is Your Birthday!








Sebastian is turning a corner tomorrow and running right into toddlerhood. He came into the world surrounded by those who loved him on Independence Day and I think he'll be reaching for his own independence more and more this year. I remember lying in the hospital bed with Sebastian sleeping next to me and Brett trying to nap on the chair beside us. He was only four hours old when we started hearing the boom of the fireworks nearby. Our window was closed and all was peaceful in our new little world. He's been the sweet kind of boy. He's got six sharp little teeth and long feet to match his long legs. He got his first haircut this week which makes him look even older.

In order to celebrate I'm making an Angel Food cake with butter cream frosting topped with strawberries and blueberries and a little #1 candle. We are staying away from a big fireworks show this year. We took him outside on Sunday evening when a local church shot their fireworks off and he about jumped out of his skin. It took about 30 minutes of holding and rocking and distraction to calm him down. The man doesn't like loud noises and bright lights! Duh, mom!

My mom, dad, brother, husband, Sebastian (in the jogger) and I are going to be running a 5k tomorrow morning @ 7 a.m. My family is full of runners. We used to run the Fireball classic in a beautiful park in Ada, OK every summer on vacation so we're continuing on with the tradition and adding another member.

Also wanted to thank Charin for this fun card she and Katie-Shae made for Sebastian's birthday! Katie is exactly 6 months younger and so sweet looking. I think Sebastian has a crush!

My sister's little boy was almost 2 months old last year for the fourth and didn't like fireworks AT ALL...it will be fun to see if he does any better with them this year. :)
