Porter's growing vocabulary

In the past month, Porter has started to mimic us more and more. It's so fun to hear his little voice start to say things.

Porter's favorite words to say are hi and go. He also has said, "lets go", bye-bye and ball. He still babbles a lot, but we have found if we say things to him, sometimes he says them back to us! I just love watching him grow!!

Expecting Baby #2

On January 20th, we got the news that we were going to have baby # 2. We are thrilled that our kids will be so close together! We are praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby, and we cannot wait to find out if it's a boy or girl!

I went to have a sonogram this past Tuesday and saw this-

A sweet little baby! It looks like a little gummy bear to me! It's heartbeat was 185 (WHOA!) and it sounded like heaven. 

I have been SO sick this pregnancy and it is very different than when I was pregnant with Porter. I guess because I am chasing him around all day too. Hopefully the sickness will subside in a few weeks. 

Dear Baby,

We are so excited to welcome another child into our family. Even though we don't know what you are yet, we love you so much already!! We are already trying to fantasize how you and Porter will be together and what your personality will be like. We just know that Porter is going to be the best big brother to you!! The three of us love you very much! 

Mommy, Daddy and big brother Porter 

Porter turns ONE

I cannot believe I just typed the words Porter turns ONE. ONE. I cant believe he has been here a whole year and I actually can't remember what life was like before him!

We threw a Yo Gabba Gabba party for him and he loved it! Especially the cake!! It was so good to see all of our friends and all the kids running around.

Susan, Matt's mom, got the cake and the cupcakes for Porter and they turned out absolutely adorable!!

Everything decorated for Porter's special day!

Porter wasn't sure what to think of his smash cake at first!

Then decided to DIG in!!

We had a wonderful day with our little monkey. We couldn't ask for better friends and family!
