Cyrus 1st b-day...

When we were in Louisiana, the twins went to their first of many b-day parties. Their cousin Cyrus turned 1 and my sister had a cute b-day party inviting friends who are also < 1. It was an adorable little party, although impossible to get a pic of all the <1 yr. olds at once. 

Cyrus's is often called a little lambie. So his smash cake my sister made was perfectly appropriate. 

 

My sister's good friend Breanna is a party planner/executor by profession. Check out her shop here and blog here

  


We tried lining all 6 babies on the couch for a pic. It was a failed attempt in the end. I love Clyde's face below as they tried putting down the birthday boy. Benjamin was the most chill and well-behaved of them all. 


Clyde partied in the exerciser. 

 

William and Cyrus loving on Clyde's face. Only pic I got of the bday boy (right). He was on the go...
Bre wants twins so badly--or tripplets.  

  

Charles zonked out in my arms.


& had a nice little nap on Poppa's shoulder.

Seafood Supper by the River...

My parents had a little get together for close friends and family when we got home. It was nice introducing the boys in one night and not feeling like I needed to run around and do so when I was home for such little time. 

  

It's a very special occasion when mom brings out her grandmother's seagull china. 



Therman's chocolate cake is better than all else. Promise.

 

The boy's premie onsies... This pictures doesn't do the tiny size justice. I can hardly remember my boys that size and it breaks my heart. I couldn't bare to throw these out so I had them monogramed to keep in my hope chest. 


 

My sister Helen with her twins. My Grandmother with 4 of her 5 great-grandchildren. 

 

My mother in law, Deb, has a way with putting babies to sleep. 
Mrs. Breard spoils my boys. She has introduced my to the cutest baby lines I had never heard of. Also, she gave the boys their first silver spoon. 


Sydney Caroline... too cute for words. 

 

Penas! So good to meet Frederick at last. It was so nice of him and Coral to come from Utah for our special weekend. And they got engaged that weekend too. Horray! April can't come soon enough. 


Loved the alligator arrangement with Spanish Moss in his mouth. 


Conen Family


The Lane twins are 3 months older. Looking forward to play-dates with them when we go home to visit. Pardon the hunch.  My posture has gone to pot since having the kids. I need to work on it. 


Add this to collection of great pics Andrew has taken with his sister Lilly. Quite the pair.


My bestie, Jennifer, from high-school drove up from Baton Rouge. 

 

Hummel Family ~ our neighbors.
Introducing Courtney to crawfish

So nice having Christian in town for the weekend too. 


Big Hair came up from Pensacola, FL the week before moving to Chicago.

Blessing Gown...

These pics were too great not to share. I appreciate a baby boy in a gown.  Let men be men and babies be babies. I dread the day the twins have to wear a big boy tie. 

 

I believe that's Prince Charles's Christening on the left and Prince William in Diana's arms on the right.
