3 years went so fast!

I can't believe Wyatt is 3 today, it has gone way too fast!

My baby at 18 months!

Wyatt turned 2!

2 1/2 years old here!

And now he turns 3 today. Here he is on his new big boy bike he got as a gift. I love this boy so much! He brings so much joy and love into our lives, and he is the best friend to his big brother. Happy Birthday Wy! We love you!

Dino-mite birthday!

I can't believe that Wyatt is turning 3! Ahhh! We had his birthday party yesterday since his big day falls on Monday.

He wanted a dinosaur themed party, so that's what he got! We played a Dinosaur Egg (balloon) cracking game with little dinosaurs inside, the kids had to find ways to pop them on their own. It was really funny to watch the little ones.

Then we had a dinosaur egg hunt. The eggs were filled with candy, dinosaurs, and stickers.

Then the Dino-pinata of course!

The kids had a blast with this. Our little neighbor boy Sam broke it open and the kids went running!

Then we went inside and had some yummy cake and ice cream! I made a dinosaur cake just for Wyatt that everyone loved! It was so easy!

After the cake we opened presents! Wyatt had so much fun with that obviously and then he found out what we got him! I didn't catch a photo of his face when he saw it, but he was excited to say the least!

Happy Birthday Wyatt! We love you soooo much!

Toothfairy Please Stop Here!

For about a week now Adam has had a REALLY loose tooth. And Ben has been REALLY excited about it, and has tried a lot to pull it out.

Yes those are pliers in Ben's hands. Adam actually let Ben try this for a few days to wiggle it out, but it just wasn't happening.

The next tool extractor of choice was floss. When this picture was taken, it still wouldn't budge. But in the end, it was the floss, about a week later that conquered the tooth.

There it is! The first lost tooth of Adam Benjamin Tolman. I would be lying if I said I didn't choke up a little bit. He is just growing up so fast. Too fast.

I know, my photography skills should be recognized on a national level. I'm thinking of submitting this one for some top awards. I'm a shoe-in.

Dentists, Lunch, Turtles, and Broken Bones...

I had been nervous all week for Friday to come. The boys had dentist appointments and I know how much I LOVE the dentist! ;)

Well the kids did great, and it looked like it was going to be a great day full of family fun. After the dentist we went to lunch at the new Costa Vida, it was so yummy!

Then Ben has been on this kick about wanting to get the kids a turtle (it's NOT going to happen). But after all three pet stores we wanted to have a little more family fun, so we decided some afternoon bowling was the ticket!

This was a bad idea.

It was all great until about the 3rd frame. Wyatt was getting his little 6lb ball off of the holder (which he can carry just fine). Well he grabs the ball, turns to roll it and trips over the step to get up on the lane.

Out pops the ball...

Down goes Wyatt...

Down goes the ball...

Snap goes Wyatt's finger! (Insert blood curdling scream here)

Poor kid, it broke his ring finger on his left hand in two places. It also bruised his sweet little pinky finger.

Of course once we were at the Dr. office, he was ready for play time. My good friend Keshia works there and she made him feel right at home! Thanks Kesh!

But of course by the time we were done with X-rays and the whole work up it had been at least two hours, already a long day, no naps, and emotionally exhausted...Wyatt was pretty worn out!
