We have a one year old!!! :)

I cannot believe we now have a one year old! This year went by incredibly fast and Maylee is growing up so much! She has been an absolute joy and we feel so blessed to have her for our daughter! She turned one on May 16th! Her Aunt Ciara and Cousin DW came into town for her birthday from Missouri and my friend Brittany also came for a few days to celebrate with us! We had a BLAST all week celebrating her turning one and let me tell you this little girl is so loved and SPOILED by everyone! We had a birthday party for her on her birthday with Samuel's classmates and a few of Maylee's friends from church! I will share tons of those photos from her birthday when we get the rest of them :) but here are a few from her birthday party and one year old photo shoot with Brittany!

Most of the week we just played around the house and at the park with DW and Ciara...

Oh and Maylee has started putting things in the toilet now.... All of Brittany's bath stuff. Opps... at least it wasn't a phone :)

We also have a lot of updates from the past month... we have been busy! We were able to go to Missouri the first week in May to be with family as our Nephew DW was sealed to his wonderful parents in the Kansas City Temple. It was so fun to be with family and be able to share such a wonderful experience with them!

While we were in Missouri we thought it would be fun to throw a early birthday party for DW and Maylee together so that some of the family could be there! We did a Thing 1 and Thing 2 theme and had lots and lots of yummy treats! The kids definitely enjoyed their first cupcakes!

And we got to go to a Sporting KC game, which is the professional soccer team there and it was a lot of fun! The babies didn't make it through the whole game but did so good for the time they were there! Maylee loved being around all the people and spent most of her time people watching and also eating kettle corn!

And we also celebrated my first Mother's Day as a mommy! and I have to say I am one lucky mom! She is such a sweet girl and I was spoiled by both her and Samuel with lots of kisses :)
