opening presents! Thanks everyone for the fun gifts!

We had Wesley's First Birthday party this past Sunday since his birthday is the day after Easter and most people will be out of town including us. It was a great time. We had lots of friends come to celebrate with us and make this day special for our little guy. I only wish he had felt better for the party. He woke up in the middle of the night running a high fever. That morning he just wanted to sleep and not eat much. He made it through the party and had fun. Why does that happen?? He was perfectly fine the next day. There has to be a statistic that 87% of children wake up with a fever or get a fever the day of their birthday party. Anyways, Wesley is still not eating much more than pureed foods still so we did TCBY yogurt instead of cake. It was really yummy and he loves it. One of the couples on our YL committee owns the local TCBY so they brought cups of vanilla yogurt and we made sundaes! They were a big hit. Wesley hangs out at TCBY on Mondays when Mommy and Daddy go to the High School for lunch, so we knew that he would love it.
We can't believe that our little boy is going to be 1 in less than a week and we are so thankful for the people that came and celebrated with us. We had people drive from Greensboro!! We went kind of over the top for his first birthday, but this day is extra special to us. We are celebrating how far God has brought us and how faithful he is. A year ago on his birthday we were overjoyed and terrified all at the same time. We didn't know if he would make it or how long we would have with him. Now we are celebrating his first birthday with a happy, healthy, BIG boy. This year has been crazy but filled with so much joy, laughter, smiles, and love for our little boy. His smile is contagious and he is so fun to be with! So here is to 100 more years of Wesley!! We love you Wesman!
A special thanks to all the people that helped us out with this party, especially the grandparents- you guys are awesome!!

Wesley Enjoying his Birthday Presents!!!

look at that face

look at that look- I wonder who he gets those facial expressions from???

Wesley was blessed with many fun gifts that we can't wait to play with. Greg spent some time before Wesley's birthday putting together some presents he got. My parents got him a Little Tikes School bus that has a slide on the back. It took a while to put together. Greg said that he thinks that the thing has more screws then our bed does. Greg and I got Wesley a swing for the backyard to hang from a tree. Greg did a beautiful job hanging it and it looks better than I even imagined. Wesley got to swing on it for the first time yesterday and LOVED it. He could not stop smiling and laughing the whole time. Thanks daddy your the best!!! The best part is that we can swing and throw Scout the frisbee. That dog needs all the attention he can get!
