More Pix WIth Gramma and Geems




Just some more pix with Marley's Gramma and Great Geems and Grampa!!

Just Because...


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!!

A Lesson of Contrasts


My dad says his feet were never this small...but I bet they were!! This picture is just too darn cute! I love it!!

Swinging Sweetly to Sleep


Today on our afternoon walk and park trip, Marley went for his routine swing, but this time he fell asleep instead of giggle until near explosion! I can't decide what is cuter...giggle fits or swing sleeping!!

Yet Another Party...





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!!

His Hair is Big!!


This goes out to my neice and Marley's cousin Katherine who gave us the fabulous idea of picking Marley's hair out...I think you will all agree, he is cute with or without the fro!!!

Marley's First Bday Party!!







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!!

Meeting the Grammas!!



Fianlly, Marley got to meet Gramma this weekend! There will be more pix of that as I get them...but theses are just a few with Gramma and Geems! Marley sure loved his Gramma and Great Geems!!

Party Time!!






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!!

The Big Boy Bath...


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!!
