Catching up

Rose and Solomon are my “little love buckets.” They make me laugh everyday. Solomon is now 3 and is actually calming down just a hair. He uses his imagination along with his love of superheroes to create a world around him of adventure. His favorite right now is Iron Man II. He begs to watch the movie over and over. It actually is a good movie if you haven’t seen it. Today he was speaking into a microphone giving the same speech from the movie calling Neall “Rodie.” It took us a long time to figure out what in the world he was talking about. Solomon is so good to Rose. He genuinely loves Rose and she loves him. She follow him and does everything she can to keep up. She isn’t afraid of anything. Sol has had a few rough days at school. He had been crying/screaming every Tuesday and Thursday and not getting a stamp for pushing, but the past week or two he has been a good boy. He’ll say “I was a bad boy at school today.” even when he was good. I don’t know what that is about because he hates spankings and especially being put in his room. He also loves all the Disney movies. He alternates between Snow White and the 7 “Doors” and Cinderella. He wants Rose to be a princess for Halloween and for him to be a Prince (When he isn’t being Iron Man or Buzz or Spiderman or Fireman or……

Rose is quite an amazing little thing. When I say little, I mean little. She is 20% in weight and 25th in height. I’m not sure that she weighs 20 pounds. One would think she doesn’t eat, but oh no, she’s the biggest eater of the family. Her word for food is yumyum. Today at lunch we said Rose are you ready to eat. She ran to the table saying “yum yum yum..” She isn’t picky and chows down. She uses a spoon better than most 2 year olds. She loves beans and asparagus the most. She can eat a cup of beans in no time. She also has starting pointing at something she wants and says “Me, me me.” She is very cuddly and gives a lot of kisses. At night I lay her in her bed and she snuggles in and goes to sleep. AMEN! Solomon goes to bed alone as well. I never thought that day would come. I look at Neall every night and say how is this possible. I definitely don’t take it for granted. She loves shoes and says, “shs” She always has some article of clothing in her hand. It may be Sol’s underwear, her pjs, or my bra, but she loves carrying around clothes.? She is a very happy baby and we don’t treat her like the big girl she is. She is growing up way too fast, she surprises us every day. Today she counted. Laura said One, and Rose said two, three. She hears us counting to three a lot with Sol around. She sees Sol get in trouble a lot, but she isn’t scared when I have to get onto her. She just smiles, giggles, and runs. She gets in trouble for playing with light sockets, the curtains, and putting things into her mouth.

Breakfast with Daddy.

Disney on Ice. Solomon and Emmy were in heaven. Maggie was in awe and Rose was hungry and interested in the cute girls behind us. The Toy Story gang came out at the end and I thought Sol was going to freak out. He loved the army man and cried when we left. It was a lot of fun. Rose loved the nachos. Aunt Tara thought Rose was sharing with her, but Rose was liking the cheese off and putting the chips on Tara’s knee. I don’t know where all that food goes.

After the show the gang was a little wound up.

Nanna’s Birthday. I made Granny’s sheet cake. It was actually good, not as good as granny’s. Silly family. We were getting a photo of us sticking our tongues out for Wes’s birthday photo.

Emmy spent the night and this is how they slept most of the night. It’s amazing how much they love each other. When Emmy is with us it is so nice; all the kids play together and rarely argue. They are just precious. If I do say so myself.

Happy Birthday baby Rose

Our Sweet Baby Rose is 1! She has brought so much joy to our lives. She always has a smile, loves to cuddle, and loves to eat. She is an amazing little girl. So smart. She grabs a book for us to read, pretends to have tea parties, loves to put tops on and off, even screw tops, eats anything, loves to drink from a straw, loves to put on shoes, and is entertained by going through my purse. Most of all she loves her mommy. My lower back is killing me because she wants me to carry her around, and only me. She is still nursing. I guess I'm more of a pacifier. She gets up in the middle of the night and I put her in the bed with us and nurses until the morning. That has got to stop. She is just so darn cute, it's hard to tell her no.
She adores Solomon. She gets in the trailer of his tractor and he rides her around. They both laugh out loud. It makes me the happiest to see them love each other. I guess it's something about two people that I love with all my heart, loving each other as well.
I just can't get enough of baby Rose. She's very special.

Kohen, didn't want his picture made. I hope he and Solomon are classmates again. Laura S. said that when Kohen got his school list he asked if Solomon had gotten his. So sweet.

Boone Boys:

Stella didn't really want Rose even looking at her crazy bandz. Rose sat for a long time just watching Stella. Rose eventually got into the Smith's bag, got out Martin's shirt and laid down on it. It had been a very busy party. I guess she is kinda like her daddy, even in the middle of a party, if you're tired you go to bed.

Thanks to these two, plus Dana for helping me put together everything before the party. Without Joy it wouldn't have been as special. She let us use the beautiful chenille bedspreads as the backdrop, she hung the birthday banner (I ordered from etsy), and knew just how to set up everything.
This is part of a picture of the food. I hate I didn't get a picture of the food tables. Keri House did an amazing job with the menu. We had meatballs, fruit on a stick, beef enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, spinach and black bean enchiladas, buttercream cupcakes, black bean and corn dip. We had a perfect amount of delicious food. Thanks Keri.

Rose scratched Tacker and made him cry. I guess Neall has been teaching her what to do around cute boys.

This is the life.

sweet Maggie.

Rose was shy with all of us singing to her. I really wish I had put a coverup on. I didn't think about me being in the pictures with a candle in my crotch. Oops.

Caroline asked her mommy and daddy before they came to the party if they thought Solomon would like her bathing suit. Why do we girls care what boys think? I guess it comes naturally.

I had these pictures planned out in my head for weeks. It wasn't the outfit I wanted, but still cute. The whole time she was whining and walking towards me, but I got some real cute ones I need to get put to canvas. Isn't the golf course gorgeous?
Solomon playing with Rose's ear. That's what they both do when they are tired. Rose plays with her own ear and Sol grabs someone else's. This photo makes my heart melt. Sol said, "Rose loves me."
I love this picture of these sweet girls.
Nanna in heaven.

PopPop want some?
This Rose bud cake from Hays was all icing but perfect for a baby rose smash cake. Rose had fun mushing it between her fingers.

They each had their own cake. Emmy made baby Rose a beautiful hear cake with tons of sparkles. She told me she made it all by herself with her mommy. Sweet Emmy.

I knew Rose would love her new chair. She sits in it for a long time.

Solomon teaching Rose how to have a tea party.

Granny and Rose love each other. We swear Rose says granny.

Tired and Hungry

My big one year old.

Party set up #1.
