We celebrated Luke's first birthday with a winter ONEderland party. 
Some of my favorite pictures from that day. Hard to believe my baby is one!

Oh baby Luke! How are you already one?! One year ago you came into our lives and completed our family. You have always been such a happy baby boy. You smile and laugh all the time. You love trying to keep up with your sister, I know soon you will be able to! You are very active. You love getting into everything and are full of wonder. The garbage can and fake plants are your favorites right now. You only really cry when you have ear infections or are teething. Your sweet cheeks and smile brighten my day. 

In just a short year you have become such an important part of our family. If you aren't in the car riding with us somewhere Chloe will say how it's just too quiet without you. You have opened places in my heart that I didn't know existed and brought me so much joy. 

I love you sweet boy. I can't wait to see who you become in this next year, but I love who you are already. Happy First Birthday!!

2016 Wrap Up!

Happy New Year! 2016 ended on a good note, celebrating Christmas and my birthday.
I fixed up my dollhouse from when I was a little girl, and gave it to Chloe. We both love playing with it!
My birthday was the next day, we had fun going to lunch with family and then I went to Cinnebistro with friends later that night. We saw Passengers, I enjoyed it especially since I wasn't sure what to really expect. 
I'm not gonna lie, the highlight was running into John and Sherry from young house love They are my favorite bloggers and when I saw them I was beyond excited. I got a picture, it was pretty amazing, and such a fun surprise for my birthday.
I also got to hang up the new chandelier in the dinning room, I love it. Goodbye ceiling fan!
With wrapping up 2016 I am really looking forward to what 2017 has in store. It was a good year, but started off really hard. A year ago we were still living at my mom's, waiting to close on our house in North Carolina, and waiting for Luke to come.  I'm so glad he is here now, he finally has a nursery in our own home and we have settled in. 

So here's to 2017!
