Birthday Boys!

We have taken some time out of the Christmas celebrations to celebrate the birth of 2 special little boys! We started off with my sweet Beckett. Beckett turned 1 on December 11 and to celebrate, we had Brad, Kiera, Mary, James and Ben over for pizza and cake. This was Beckett's first taste of cake, and it didn't take him long to figure out that it is delicious! I cannot believe that it has been a years since my sweet boy was born.  He gave us quite a surprise when he decided to enter into this world 7 weeks early, and he continues to surprise and amaze us daily.  As far as milestones, he isn't walking yet but is getting really good at walking by pushing just about anything! He is eating all regular foods and loves whole milk. He is saying mama, dada, and even heard a bye bye. His favorite things right now are anything that his brother has and anything involving any type of ball. He is still has a very easy going demeanor and loves to cuddle and get kisses!
Here he is after Jackson gave him his first taste of cake!
Just like every 1 year old...the box is much more entertaining than the toy!
We got Beckett his chair to match his brother's. It is very cute to see them sitting on them together!
All the cousins in their matching shirts made by Aunt Kiera. They were all so cute!
Next we had a combined birthday party for the boys at Champion kids. This was actually the first time Beckett has been there, and he had a lot of fun with the baby toys.

Beckett loves to slap his hands on top of things!

The next morning my big boy turned 4! We started the morning with 4 powdered sugar donuts lit by candles. Such a special little treat! Everytime we are in the grocery store, Jackson asks me to buy them!!
I decorated his door the night before and here he is with his huge Buzz Lightyear balloon! Jackson is getting to be such a big boy! He is a very good helper with his brother and loves to help him eat! He is always trying to make us laugh and full of energy! He loves school and has lots of friends. He is smart, kind, and of course, he has the best hair! Right now he is into building things and anything superhero. He loves to play good guys and bad guys and run around the house. He is always ready to try new things and usually the life of the party. Happy Birthday Jackson!We love you to the moon and back!
I like this picture because Beckett seems to be having just as much fun as Jackson opening up the presents! We ended the day with our 3rd cake at Jackson's favorite restaurant...Panera. This family is all caked out and can't wait for the next celebration....Christmas!
