One of the newest additions to the Wyeth home. We now have a terrarium with 4 fire-bellied toads. Oh what fun! It is amazing what fears you have to just get over to be a mom... :-)

Unbelievably, I took my baby boy to kindergarten for the first time a few days ago. I can't decide where time goes? It seems like yesterday he was taking a bottle and sleeping on me all night. He is such a special, sweet little boy. Of course, he is full of mischief, but has a sweet little spirit and loves to still cuddle. He'll get me for blogging that one day. I am so thankful that he is able to go to a Christian school and also that he only goes half days. Don't think this mama could do the all day thing yet. Even better, he loves it. Even doesn't mind the homework yet! Thank you, Father, for my Sammy. We've been through so much together and you have been so good to us! Thank you for helping me let go just a little each day...
In the weeks leading up to Eli's birthday, all he asked for was that Barney make an appearance at his party. This put one mama on a search! Of course we all know, Barney is one busy dinosaur. But thank goodness, he took time out of his busy schedule to come and visit. And he even brought along another one of Eli's friends...BABY BOP! We all had such a great time. Thought we would share some pics of Eli's fabulous birthday party!
Wish Big, Sweet Boy!
Sam and the big dinosaur
Yep, after all that talk, Eli was very unsure...
I love you, you love me...
Barney was so excited too!

I honestly don't know where time goes. I have blinked and my baby has turned three. It seems like just yesterday I got the call from our doctor confirming what we thought to be true. I was pregnant. Something I thought I may never get to experience, God had allowed me to. Eddie and I, standing in the parking lot of the Northpark Mall, stopped, took that call and then stood there locked together praising God. How awesome is He! He has allowed me to experience two different kinds of births. I am a blessed girl.
But now, with that baby turning three, we have seen his personality just blossom into our clown. He loves music, making a microphone out of just about anything, or a guitar for that matter. He loves hot dogs. The child would eat them for breakfast if I would let him! He loves his brother, yet they fight worse than any I have ever seen. And, most importantly, this little boy loves his mama. I am amazed at what this child has added to our family. I praise God for trusting me with him and his brother. Two sweet little boys. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for Eli, but for right now, I am enjoying all the "Barney" concerts, the tree frog hunting, and everything else this little guy can throw at me.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Elijah Aaron! We all love you so much!
Just had to share a few more!
Who wouldn't love this face!? Sweet Jacob...

Eli absolutely loves this boy!
Eddie, on stage, right before his dance lesson! Check out the next post for a laugh! :-)
We had a blast on our cruise. I am so thankful that Meme, and two of my sweet nephews, Taylor and Jacob, were able to go with us. We had wonderful family time and made so many memories I know we will each cherish for a lifetime. Sam and Jacob thought they were really big kids since they were able to hang out in the arcade by themselves, supervised from afar, of course...so this is a memory that stands out to each of them.
There is truly nothing like family. God has blessed me with such an amazing one. Thanks, Meme, for a great trip!
The boys couldn't wait each night to see what kind of creature would be waiting on us. Heck, we couldn't either!
Sam and me at dinner. Don't think we got one pic with his mouth closed!
Meme and Eli at dinner. Yep, you see the mouth. What is it with my kids!?
Best Buddies...they had a blast!
