Boy's 1st Birthday and 1 year old stats!

On August 13th, Wade and Brody turned 1 year old! We had our afternoon ruined by a Dr. appointment with shots. I have never heard the boys cry as hard as they did that day. They were sobbing and inconsolable, especially B-man. Thank God my Mom was with was such a long visit, because Dr. Keefe did their 12 month screening, and then the nurse topped it off with 3 huge shots. She said, you might want to grab his arms and legs, these burn. Great. Just great. And boy, did they ever burn. Good news is they are right on target for all of their skills that they should have accomplished to date, plus more! That makes a Mama proud!

We started a little tradition...we woke the boys up, singing Happy Birthday and camcorded the event...and polished the day off with pizza!

Here is a pic of the boys, before the shots, fighting over who gets to sit in the waiting room chair:

Thank you to everybody who was able to make the party and help us celebrate the 1st year of Brody and Wade's life!!! Thank you Lynnette for taking pics..LOVE THEM!

We tried to give them cake, and once again, they did not like it. Oh well...Wade tried to throw his on the floor and Brody screamed and wanted out of his highchair (he does not like large crowds and becomes very clingy):
