Our sweet Paisley Addison turned ONE on May 19th! This year has truly FLOWN by! Paisley is such a sweet baby and we love her more than words can express. She brings so much joy into our hearts and lives and we couldn't imagine life before her! I will post her birthday pictures and some highlights from her first year soon! I did take her to her 1 year well check up and wanted to post her stats before I lost the paper. :) Ha! Even if no one reads this blog, this is my way to archive our families special memories! Happy Birthday precious P! I can't wait to watch your personality flourish over this next year! You truly are an angel baby! We love you so, so much!!!
Last week my baby girl turned 1 years old, my middle baby boy moved to the 3 year old class at school and my big baby boy graduated from Pre K!! Where is the time going??!! A few weeks ago, I pulled the graduation invitation out of Logan's folder and tears began flowing down my eyes. On one hand I was thrilled that he would be participating in a Pre K graduation, but on the other hand, I couldn't believe it was really happening. I seriously felt like it was yesterday he was Paisley's age and I was dropping him off at Mrs. Amy's house. Being a working mommy, I didn't get the opportunity to stay at home with him, but every year God has provided a wonderful caregiver to nurture and teach my little boy. When Logan was 3 we moved him to The First United Methodist Church in Denton, for him to start preschool. He had been staying at in home daycare with wonderful people while he was a baby, but we felt like he needed a more "school" environment for him to learn in as he got older. We immediately fell in love with this school. The teachers were Godly women who provided a loving and developmentally appropriate place for my child to learn and grow in. Logan not only learned his ABC's and 123's, he learned more about the love of Jesus. He attended Chapel and prayed during his day. I feel like it was a wonderful foundation for him. He made great friends and learned how to be a respectful and kind person. He is more than ready and prepared for his Kindergarten year! As I say goodbye to my preschooler, I am a proud mama of the person he has become in the last 5 years! I am also excited about the more time I will get to spend with him in elementary school and look forward to watching him blossom as a Pecan Creek Bear!! I love you so much Logan Miller Kleppe! You make mommy and daddy so proud!!
My sweet middle love, turned 3 on April 3rd! Spencer has been anticipating his birthday, since his brother had his back in February. He kept telling us, that he wanted to have a bouncy house for his birthday. Of course grandpa got wind of this and wanted to make his wishes come true. I knew I wanted to have the party at our house this year and invite all of Spencer's school and family friends to the party. I was just a little concerned about planning an outside birthday at the beginning of April. I could just picture lots of rain and a bunch of 3 year olds in my house! :) But, I prayed about it for weeks and when the day finally arrived, the weather was just PERFECT, (ok maybe a little windy, but we could deal with that!) Spencer is usually not my child who needs to be the center of attention, (that would be Logan,) but you could tell the moment everyone arrived to celebrate his day, he felt very SPECIAL! I think it helped having it in his environment, where he felt comfortable. He also was SO excited that his best buds from school were actually at his house. The party went very well. The kids bounced, blew bubbles, rode toys, played with bouncy balls, drew with side walk chalk, ate popsicles, ran around and ate cake. It was very low key, but just perfect for my little man. And, we all LOVED celebrating with our sweet boy too! Happy Birthday again little man! Thank you for always brightening our days! You definitely keep us on our toes and give us MANY laughs! Our home wouldn't be the same without you! Love you to the moon and back! Can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!! (Spencer's 3 year old stats coming soon!)
