Happy 5th Birthday Blake!

We had Blake's party yesterday and even though there was ice on the ground, we still had a great party! It was pirate themed. Blake loved his decorations. He kept saying "that looks great mom". He's so sweet! Among his presents were a basketball goal and a bike. He loved everything!
He's starting to get excited about Kindergarten. Before he kept saying that he wasn't going, but the past few weeks he says he can't wait! He does great at preschool, but it's only half a day. We'll see how he likes eating lunch and taking a nap at school.
Blake loves to play make believe. He's doing really good reading and loves to be read to. He draws pictures ALL the time. I find paper all over the house that he's drawn on. He's getting really good(I think he'll take after his poppy!).
He's 44 1/2 inches tall, weighs 46.5 pounds, wears a size 13 shoe, size 5 jeans(that we have to adjust the waist on), and size 6-7 shirt! I think he's gonna be tall! ha
His favorite drinks are chocolate milk, sweet tea, and Dr Pepper. He likes chicken strips, grilled chicken, catfish, apples, oranges, celery, pretzels, gold fish, brownies, zebra cakes, and candy candy candy! He has such a sweet tooth-like his moma ;)
I thought it would be fun to do a little interview with Blake to be able to look back on and see what he was thinking. This is how it went:

1. What is your favorite cereal? Cookie Crisp

2. What is your favorite toy? hot wheels

3. What is your favorite TV show? The Wizards of Waverly Place

4. What is your favorite game? Mario Party 8

5. What is your favorite book? Happy Birthday to You by Dr Seuss

6. What is your favorite restaurant? McDonalds

7. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas

8. What is your favorite animal? monkey

9. If you could change your name, what would it be? Rockstar

10. What do you love about each person in our family?
dad: he teaches me how to ride my bike
mom: she gives me care and love
Haley: she takes care of me when my boo boos hurt
Kate: she loves me and gives me kisses

11. Where would you like to go for vacation? Disneyworld

12. What do you think you'll like best about Kindergarten? making new friends

Isn't he the sweetest?!

Here are the pictures from his party

Kate is 11 months!

It's really hard to imagine that this time next month my little angel will be turning 1! She has the sweetest personality. I would say she's getting so big-but she's not! ha! She still weighs 15 pounds. She's eating table food now and drinking milk from a sippy cup as well as nursing. We took her to get her hair trimmed for the first time the other day because it was getting in her eyes. She did really good! Here's a list of her tricks! haha
pulls up
pushes stroller and walks
says: dada, mama, nana, bye, hi, hello, la la
signs: daddy, more, eat, drink, bye, num nums, good    Kate signing
points to: hair, nose, eyes
blows kisses, plays patty cake, puts the phone or her hand up to her ear and says hello, shakes her head yes and no, gives sugar(with open mouth of course), likes to sing and dance
still only has bottom 2 teeth
takes 2 naps a day
likes to play with her toys and look at her books
she loves music
