Bowen is officially spoiled! I have been able to keep his toys in a small basket under our TV up until now. I'm afraid our front room has turned into a toy room. We had a family party, which ended up being huge! It was a nice evening so everyone was outside the whole evening. Bowen loves people and attention, and he was smiling all night long. Thanks to everyone who brought gifts.
His birthday cake was balloons!
I never thought the first year would go by so fast! It's hard for me to imagine how small and dependent Bowen used to be. Now he can do so many things: color pictures, say "ball", "mom", "dad", wave, clap, push his firetruck everywhere, beg for food, drink from a straw, play peek-a-boo, go up and down stairs, open and close doors, and be funny as ever! Happy Birthday Bowen, we love you!
Bowen played outside today while I worked in the garden. I lost track of him for a while and next thing I knew he was eating a rock that he found in the mud. He loved playing outside. I look forward to many more sunny days in the garden.
Seth and Makenzie have been married since December 2005. We just welcomed the newest and cutest member of our family, Ruby, born December 30th, 2012. Bowen is our happy 5-year-old and Leah is our energetic 3-year-old. Seth runs his own internet marketing company and Makenzie is a stay at home mom and loves it!
