HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUS! & HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOOSE!

....and then they were ONE!


BUS- Carrying you was a dream! You were so predictable and loved to snuggle in down on my left side. The nurses never had any problems finding you to monitor! Little did we know that once you were born that would all change! *wink
Your first two weeks of life were so hard, and yet you proved to me just how much of a fighter you were! Everyday you surprised me with your progress! You were the first baby home just as you were the first born. You came out and immediately screamed and peed on the doctors; I should have known then that you were going to be my wild child! Your laughter is infectious and your dancing makes us all smile! Your adventurous nature will definitely keep me on my toes! I love it when you sing to me and all the stories you tell! (even if I can't understand them I can tell by the look in your eyes how excited you are to share them!) Happy Birthday my sweet boy! Happy First Birthday to YOU!








MOOSE- You were the wild child in my belly! The nurses always had to end up calling in the ultrasound tech to find you for monitoring! You were always kicking me but would settle when I would sing to you. I loved being pregnant with you! You came out silent but fighting, everyone reassured me that you were ok, just needed a wee bit of stimulation to get you going. You are so patient with everyone and so shy! (who would have thought it!) Your "Hotcha Chacha" Smiles sends me into a giggling frenzy! Even though you were second born you have taken command being the first to both crawl and now walk! It amazes me to see you hobble around everywhere and even try to dance! You are such a professor, always watching to see how things work. You've even mastered how to find the weak spot in the baby fence and push your way to freedom! (with of course your brother in tow behind you!) Happy Birthday my big boy! Happy First Birthday to YOU!
