Phillip's Very Eventful Year

Since my last post was entirely about the little princess. I thought I'd devote a post to my little handsome boy, and chronicle his last year of firsts. It's amazing how many "firsts" a little person accomplishes. He started walking at 10 months. It was so adorable to see such a little person walking all over the place.
He took his first trip to the zoo. He wasn't too fond of the brass monkey. I must admit it was hilarious seeing him freak when Matt took him over to get a picture!
While at the zoo, he had his first carousel ride.
And his first train ride!
He celebrated his first 4th of July.
He had TWO first birthday parties. One in Utah.
He had a blast with his very own baseball cake mommy made!
And one in Texas with some yummy Blue Bell!
He learned how to drink out of a cup like a big boy!
 He went to his first Astros Game! GO 'STROS!!
He got his first haircut while in Texas.
He saw his first Moose in Grandma Neely's front yard.
He was in his first car accident. On our way home we came up on deer completely across the road. There was no way to avoid hitting them. We killed 2 and possibly injured another, but we were all ok!
He played in the snow for the first time.
He became a big brother. He's such a big helper!
He learned how to shoot a Nerf gun and somehow taught himself how to make machine gun noises that would put a grown man to shame.
And that smile is what makes all the fits and meltdowns worth it! I am the luckiest mom in the world. He recently learned to ask if someone who says "ow" or seems to be in pain is "ok." It makes me feel instantly better when I'm having a stressful day and this little one walks up to me and asks, "kay?" You just can't help cracking a smile. I think to myself, "Yes, I'm ok." I am the luckiest woman in the world and while times may get stressful. At the end of the day I have the best little family ever and I couldn't ask for more!


  1. I can't believe how fast time goes! He makes my heart melt!!! I love him sooooooo BAD!!! :D
