I just wanted to share this picture because I just absolutely looooove the way Marley is looking at me...like he really loves me!! When he is 14 and I am so uncool, yeah, right like that will ever happen...I will whip out this picture and remind him that once upon a time, he really, really loved me!!

And our third and final party was for Lesley's Gram's 85th birthday! After this party Marley let us sleep in until 9am...that rocked!! Lesley's kids Kais and Sady (Oh I pray I spelled that correctly) totally adored him and had such great questions about adoption, Ethiopia, and Marley's background! Lesley has done such a great job raising these two beautiul children...Les, I'm proud of you and proud to be your best friend!!
Marley's totally awesome Aunt Kathy threw him his first ever birthday party...equiped with cake, balloons, streamers, favors, two pools and presents galore...not to mention the delicious Mexican food!! Everyone had a blast!! And we even met some new people....like Alec who is also from Ethiopia...birthdays rock!!
This weekend was filled with parties...three to be exact! The first one for Marley's cousin Dylan's (my nephew) graduation. Dylan is such an awesome guy, and as I told my sister this weekend....if Marley grows up to be half as good a guy as Dylan...then I would have done something right!! I can't beleive you graduated and are off to college to pursue a career as a fire fighter!! Dylan, you rock bud!! I am so proud of you and even more proud to be your Aunt! I love you man!!
Dylan was Marley's age when I graduated from high school...man how time flies!!

We had so much fun this weekend enjoying the warm weather!! Marley and I went to Mother's Beach on Friday and then to the boat for a little nap. On Saturday, after a marathon 3 hour nap, we went to the beach with the Workmans! A good day was had by all!!

As if it's not enough that he is turning 1 on Friday, his perfect gummy grin is hours away from disappearing with the arrival of a top tooth...he's now too big for the sink and is taking baths in the big boy bath tub...I am actually crying while writing this...really...yes, I am an emotionally maniacal Mommy!!
