I haven't posted in FOREVER!!!!! We have been so busy. I heart summer and am so glad that's it's here. I have taken Walker to the pool in our neighborhood three times and he seems to love it. Walker also seems to be loving something else this summer....My best friend Mallory's daughter, Avery. Yes I think he has his first crush. Avery is a three years older than he is but he doesn't seem to mind.
Today our Sunday school class had our annual fish fry and we had too much fun. I would post pics but I am exhausted and my computer is so slow tonight for some reason. I will try to post them Monday.

I would pay good money to know what he is talking about! This is one of things I am going to miss the most as he gets older! Along with that waddle he has when he walks! I love this baby boy with all my heart and I hope he is not talking bad about me!

I am still trying to recover from this weekend! Saturday we had Walker's first birthday party. We had so much fun! Walker was an angel all day. He never got fussy, he entertained everybody and flirted with the older girls in attendance! He SMASHED his smash cake! Cake was EVERYWHERE!!! He had cake in his hair, all over his clothes and even rubbed it in his eyes! He didn't however, enjoy opening presents! I considered mentioning it to his doctor when we went in for his one year checkup on Monday. That just isn't normal! Everybody likes opening presents. I had so much fun planning Walker's party and can't wait to do it again next year. Only next year I wil hire someone to come in as soon as the guest leave to clean my house! It took me all night to get things back in order. I would like to take this time to thank my mother who stayed and entertained my child while I cleaned. Mom, thanks for all your help! I couldn't have done it without you!
Sunday was Mother's Day and it was wonderful! It was also Baby Dedication at our church. I was so excited! Walker was born the week of Mother's day last year so he wasn't able to be dedicated until this year. I had such high hopes for this day and this special ceremony. My parents, brother, grandparents and Marc's parents were all there which was so special but things didn't exactly go as I had planned. Walker pitched a fit the ENTIRE time we stood down front! So if you were there and were wondering who the terror tot was down front acting like a brat, it was my child. I apologize to anyone who tried to capture this ceremony on and camera because you probably can't hear anything for Walker screaming!!!I was mortified! After church we were all able to go and have lunch together which was GREAT! No one had to cook or clean which was a gift in it's self. Here are a few pics!

I am blogging about this today because I plan to devote my entire day tomorrow to my precious baby boy. Tomorrow is Walker's first birthday so our day will be spent doing whatever Walker desires and believe me he has no desire to watch me type on the computer. A year ago today I was admitted to the hospital to be induced. After 14 hours of labor, 2 hours of pushing and a c-section I got to see the most precious face I have ever laid eyes on! Walker is the center of our world and we thank God everyday for giving us this amazing gift! I can't believe that Walker is a year old! This has been the most WONDERFUL year of our lives! I never imagined that having a family could be so rewarding! Walker is blessed with amazing great-grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! I am so happy that my baby gets to grow up knowing that he loved by not just Marc and I but by each of them! I could go on and on but I won't I will end with a slideshow of our sweet boy! Turn your volume up, I added music to it. This is one of my FAVORITE songs!!!

Tonight I was trying to get the recipes together for the things I would be fixing for Walker's birthday party and Walker came up to me wanting me to pick him up so of course I did. He sat in my lap for .02 seconds and starting squirming so I reached for the first thing I saw and gave it to him. Well, it was my iPod! As soon as I handed it to him I knew I had made HUGE mistake! He now refuses to give it back! We have tried to take it away from him three times and he starts sobbing! Like whole body shaking and huge alligator tears kind of crying! He has been walking around "talking" on the iPod!I tried to video him with my camera so it's dark and by this time he wasn't talking as much as he had been but you can still see him putting the phone to his ear! Here is a video! It's too cute!
