Happy Birthday, Daddy!
Kent has entered the last year of his 20's. We were discussing how quickly our 20's have gone by. We've been married for 10 years, bought our first home, have a little "farm", Kent own his own business, and we have four fantastic wonderful children. Not bad accomplishments for our 20's.
The kids and I bought Kent a holder for his cell phone and a rain gauge. Now when it rains we will actually know how much we got and everyone will quit telling us it didn't really rain that much ;) .
Happy 1st Birthday, Ben!
We nicknamed him Tree Frog because he loved to be in this position. He only weighed 6lbs 15 oz so he seemed long and lanky.
I can't believe how much he has changed. He is such a smiley boy!
On the 3rd we had a little party and he had his first brownie. He has since discovered sweets and gets very excited to eat them.
For his 1st birthday I decided to make a cake with cupcakes. After spending some time looking online I chose to make balloons.
He isn't walking yet but the pulling up is happening more and more. Griffin was 15 months old before he walked so I'm not concerned. 15-16 months sounds like a good time to have a fully mobile Ben. His army crawl gets him into enough trouble. Thankfully he has a wonderful big sister who puts things back that he drags out.
The cousins - getting 5 children ages 7 and under to sit still is not as easy as it appears. But here they are - all the Richardson grands.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Griffin!
Aunt Robin stayed with me in the hospital after Griffin was born. I received so much help after Griffin's birth. Madisyn and Ty went to McDonald's and swimming frequently.
Griffin has had problems with cow's milk. He was doing an allergy elimination diet around his 2nd birthday. His cake that year was an Angel food cake that we later topped with strawberries.
He still talks about his cake with dirt on it! LOL
I can't imagine life in the Witcher household without Griffin. We love him so much!
