Seriously.... you guys...
I got this in my email this morning...


We woke him up this morning with a whispered, "Happy Birthday Ben! it's TODAY!" and received a whispered, "yea!" back with a shy grin... sweet boy...

MommyOfTheYear sent in aaaalll the cupcakes to daycare yesterday, so we stuck his candles in raspberry cheese danish this morning...

His eyes LIT UP (no pun intended) as we lit his candles!
(He mostly spit when he tried to blow them out, so Daddy helped actually extinguish the candles...)

He's at grandma's house (MIL) now getting spoiled:

Today they plan to go see SIL's new apartment (where I'm sure there's more waiting for him there, she adores him!)

 ETA: Nana took Button to McD's PlayPlace for his birthday:

E and I have a 5pm elective ultrasound to see if #2 has an innie or an outie (OMG I CAN'T WAIT!!) and then we pick up the birthday boy! (and most likely E's adopted sisters to come stay the night & babysit - we've got to get to the VFW hall (we've booked for tomorrow's party) by 6:30 to pick up the key and start decorating!)

And then the big party tomorrow!!!!

So Monday (or, like, next month) should be a big birthday party post, as well as a gender announcement!!!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday, baby Button!!

    I am so excited for your u/s!! FX that you have a cooperative baby who doesn't have his/her legs crossed!

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG BOY BUTTON!!!!!!!! Gotta love your labels. I cannot wait to see this birthday post... but, admittedly, way more exciting about his gender announcement. OMG. STALKING YOU NOW.
