Mommy's Birthday

Today is my birthday! I'm 29 -- which means it's the last birthday I'll ever admit to having, right? We had another wonderful day today. Emily woke up extra early this morning and made me a birthday version of "Blueberry Buckle" It was EXCELLENT! The Powell family played games all morning and then went out to eat for lunch. BoomMa and BoomPa had to leave and drive back to Oklahoma in the early afternoon... so Oma and Papa Hensley came in from Lindsborg! We continued playing games (Pegs and Jokers) and then had pizza delivered for supper. It was a super day -- exhausting, but fun.

Having family here this weekend has been so much fun for Ledger. He has been able to look at so many faces and loves being held by everyone in his family. Here are some pictures of Ledger today. :)

Ledger discovered his feet and works very hard to focus on grabbing his toes.

Over the last week, Ledger has really gained control over his hands. He grabs his bottle with two hands to control it and just this weekend was able to grab his teether with both hands to keep it in his mouth!

After a long weekend with the family, Ledger could barely keep his eyes open!
I really enjoyed being surrounded by family this weekend. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful family support system and I really enjoy watching everyone's reactions to Ledger.

And I want to congratulate my nephew, Ronan Guy. He turned 1 year old yesterday AND started walking all over the place. We miss being able to see the Guy family more often... but at least we can follow them on their blog!

  1. We were so happy to see our family last weekend and especially thrilled it was your birthday! Did the girls redeem themselves at "pegs and jokers"? Happy Birthday Month to our girls!
