My Bubs is 1!

We had a great time celebrating Ronins first birthday! He is just the cutest little monkey, which is why I made him this cake! I really don't have too much to say. We had a few friends come over, had some BBQ, opened presents, and ate some cake. It may not have been on the same level as Eden's first birthday, but we all had a great time.
Getting so big!
Enjoying his dinner. I can't believe how much food this little guy can put away!
First attempt at a family picture
Second attempt
Opening presents
I wish I would have got this on video: See that cool dump truck he just opened. If you press a button it rumbles and then if it weren't in a box, it would move. Well Dus pressed the button and Ronin freaked right out. I've never seen him crawl over to me so fast. He kept trying to climb higher up my lap, and his little heart was racing. He HATED that toy, so we took it back. Good job Dustin, way to know your son (jokes). I thought he'd like it too!

To my Ronin: Here are just a few (of the many) things I know about you. You are a beautiful little boy. You are fearless and tough. You have this giggle that melts my heart. It also makes me want to continue tickling you or keep making weird noises so I can hear it longer. You love to play with your ball popper toy and make T-rex sounds. Your favorite game is peekaboo around the couch. You do not like to sit still, and you dislike books (like your Dad). You love your sister. She can make you laugh harder than anyone, she can make you cry harder than anyone too. You love to crawl all over your Dad, and chase him around the couch. And as for me Ronin...well, you're crazy about me. Good thing the feeling is mutual. You are quite literally the reason I wake up in the morning, and the reason I can't sleep through the night...and I love you!


  1. Aww so cute! And your cake IS AWESOME!! I am kind of jealous. No, really...I think you are making me a monkey cake next year for my birthday. :) First attempt at family picture--I was like, "Where's Eden?" lol. She's too cute!

    p.s. I think we need to hang out more...or maybe I should say I think we need to hang out. haha.

  2. Kins-what a cute post. Your little family is SO cute. I love the little monkey cakes for your little monkies!! Loved the note to Ronin. "literally the reason I wake up in the morning and the reason I can't sleep through the night"- we've all got one!! However, you write it so sweetly, that it really becomes a compliment! PS-you are lookin' good, Sista!!

  3. This is just an adorable post. Your kidlets are adorable and you are adorable. I am so glad that Ronin had a good birthday! You are an amazing mother too...your little monkey loves are lucky!!

  4. Happy birthday to your little bub! Kinsey, I have to tell you that you look amazing! sooooo beautiful.
