When I was pregnant…there were 2 dates I was praying Ryder would decide not to come. The first date was June 13th because that is when we had Maddox’s Birthday Party planned at Monkey Joe’s, the other was June 18th…Maddox’s Birthday. Lots of people said they thought it would be neat if they were born on the same day…but I did not want that at all! They will definitely be having joint birthday parties from here on out so I wanted them to have there on special day that they did not have to share!! God granted me my wish and Ryder came at the perfect time…..8 days early and smack dab in between those 2 dates!!! Thank you Jesus!!
So on Saturday we celebrated Maddox’s Birthday at home.
He was styling in his Birthday Boy PJ’s!!
At this point, Maddox had not held Ryder…he just hadn’t warmed up to him quite that much yet!
I think I bribed him to give him a kiss….but it was still so sweet!!!
Around lunch time…our sweet neighbors came over to meet Ryder!!
After Maddox woke up from his nap…he decided he was ready to hold Ryder for the first time!!! Such a precious moment!!
That evening, Chris’ Mom, Aunt, Grandma, and cousin came by. Aunt Jean brought Maddox a birthday gift!
The Kiser’s also came over that evening…it was nice having all the company come in….it made Maddox’s birthday celebration even better!!!
We are singing Happy Birthday to him and he is loving it….he had been singing it to himself all day….too cute!!!
Blowing out his candle!! Make a wish Maddox!!!
Chris’ Mom and Grandma…4 generations…his Grandma actually has 5 generations! She is 96!!!
Keleigh meets Ryder!!
Baby E…checking out Ryder!!! Baby E is Maddox’s girlfriend so we need Keleigh to have another girl so Ryder can have a girlfriend!!
This is just precious!!!
Once he held him…he wanted to hold him more!!!
Love this pic!! Baby Elynd has the cutest smile I’ve ever seen…she is so animated!!
A gift for the Birthday Boy….from Mommy and Daddy!!!
A water table!!! We originally bought a sand and water table and decided to take it back after reading reviews….it sounded like they just make a mess…does anyone else have a sand and water table? Did we make the right choice by just getting the water table? Stay tuned for how Maddox likes to play in it!!
I just Love this little girl!!!
Another great day that God blessed us with!! It was such a special day having sweet Ryder already here to celebrate Maddox turning 2!!! Maddox’s Big birthday present from us was giving him a life long playmate and buddy!!! I just speak that they will be Best Friends and always love and look out for each other!!
I LOVE my BOYS!!!!!
