Happy Birthday Seth!!

Happy 2nd Birthday to my little buddy Seth! His birthday was actually a while ago on the 28th of June, but it's never too late to say Happy Birthday. Well, Seth had a great day, he got spoiled rotten (as usual). He loves Batman, so we decided to have a Batman Birthday this year. I made him a Batman cake, and he got a little Batman action figure along with Batman pajamas, and Batman sunglasses. He also got some other great gifts, especially from his grandparents, but he happened to open the Batman action figure first, and then that was all he wanted to play with. He didn't even want to open the rest of the presents, so his cousins helped him out. He also loved his cake, it was nothing spectacular, but it was good enough for him! We had such a blast with all our friends and family over for cake and ice cream. Even our newly adopted grandparents/neighbors came, it was great!

I just can't believe Seth is already 2 years old. He's getting so big, and he copies everything we say. He talks a ton, but most of the time I have to be the translator. He loves to play with his toys, and his new thing is to line up all his toys in a single file line. He makes lines out of everything. It's a great way to keep him entertained at church, I just have to make sure that I bring enough cars and trucks to keep him busy. He also loves to throw all his toys down the stairs and in the toilet. He's such a little boy!

Luke is getting big too! It's so fun to see the boys interact with one another. Luke loves to watch Seth all the time. It's amazing that he already looks up to his big brother. He wants to be big like him in every way. Seth is also a great big brother. He'll lay by Luke on the floor, and give him toys to play with all the time.

It is such a blast being a mom! My favorite thing is to think of new things for them to do. There are so many ways to have fun. We go to the free summer movies, swim (at our house, the lake, or the pool), go to the parks, or just go for walks. My favorite is when Brad gets off early and we go walk around the Green Belt as a family, and let Seth chase the ducks. The other day we took him down there and he was having a great time trying to catch a duck. There was a couple fishing on the grass, and there were some geese right by them, so Seth went over. As he walked up to them one of them pooped on the grass. We thought Seth would try to touch the geese, but instead he picked up the freshly layed poop. We both dove for him but it was too late. He had grabbed it, but let go as soon as I started squealing. It was so nasty!

Well, as for me and Brad, we are doing great! Our family is growing and Brad's done with school. He finished in April 2007 with a Construction Management Degree, and is currently doing concrete flatwork full time. We were trying the whole building and selling thing which went well for the first few houses, but we still have one that we're sitting on, so I'm not sure when we'll build again. It's been a great experience to work together on getting the houses finished. I'm so glad that Brad is such a hard worker! He's the Best!

Well, I just finished school as well. I finally got my 2 year only took me 5 years. It's nice to have it though, and to be done. Now I just get to stay at home and try to be the best mom I can be. I LOVE IT!!! Here's a pic. of my 3 boys!
