Sullivan's Birthday

So I figured I would finally post about Sullivan's birthday, since according to Alex "you've sucked at blogging". Sorry Alex, not all of us can work full time, go to school full time, and take care of YOUR kids so blogging wasn't my priority...jk, I love blogging.
This is the morning of his birthday. Luckily he had Tessa to open every single present.
I mean every one.

So for Sullivan's birthday party I decided to make it a monster theme, mainly because I found a super cute cake on Bakerella, and a bunch of monster stuff at Oriental Trading...and Sully loves monsters-he doesn't know it yet, but he does. Our whole family had been sick the entire week, so it was super lucky that everything turned out well...especially this adorable cake that I made...not to toot my own horn, but OMG isn't it cute?
It may or may not have started melting shortly after this picture was taken, so it spent most of the party in the fridge.
I have a bunch of pictures of the actual party, but now blogger is telling me my requests are bad...so picture everyone having fun. That's what it looks like in my pictures.
Sully with his first taste of his cupcake.
And the last taste...this is what he looks like after every meal. No joke.
So that was his party-too bad all the other pictures were badly requested!
Anyway, just in case you were all wondering if my baby is huge or not...he's not! We took him to the doctor and he is AVERAGE. Weird right? He is 50% for his height and 24% for his weight!! I would never have thought one of my babies would be below the 90th for anything, but he is. It's really weird, because he just looks so fat...

What my days look like...

Hey. So as most of you may or may not know, I work from home most days. Tessa is usually playing outside or with her little friend across the street, so my main concern while working is Sullivan. And seriously, that kid is concerning. When Tessa was little, she was not interested in the stairs. Or the spaces behind the couches. Or electrical outlets. But Sullivan cannot stop exploring those things. He seriously doesn't sit still, unless he's asleep. I've heard that boys are like that, but I seriously had no idea..
This is after he's crawled out from behind the couch. I thought I had a picture where you can only see his head under the couch cushions, but I guess not.
That is his trail of destruction...and him being adorable and watching Gnomeo and Juliet.
This is usually where he is at-trying to find a way to escape our family room. He hasn't found one yet, but he is learning to climb pretty well.
This is him after he's given up. That trail of books is from him too...
Ugh-he's so cute. And I'm sure everyone can notice the wave of destruction behind him...that wasn't me that did that.
When he starts walking, I'm going to have to quit my job...I know that when that happens he'll figure out how to open doors and hot wire cars...terrifying.

Hey all. So I'm sure people have heard about the Up house out in Herriman, but if you haven't....they built the Up house in Herriman. Filled in?! I thought you'd enjoy that...so on Saturday we were having our bathroom tiled/demolished, so we had to get out of our house to have Sullivan fall asleep (which he didn't, don't worry) so we took the kiddos out to see the Up house. It was adorable. Alex thought it was ugly, but that's because he has no positive outlook on life...no big deal. And when we were pulling out of the driveway, I said "did you grab the camera?" and Alex said "nope" and then kept on a-rollin. So these were taken with his phone...

Tessa and Gracie (our neighbor across the street-and her bestie...) they both had to bring dollies. And wear skirts...it was a pretty big deal.Pretty much the same picture as before, just farther away...It even has this mailbox-so cute. Apparently Alex didn't care that Tessa couldn't keep her eyes open. Bless his heart.

And I swear Sullivan was there too, he was just in my arms the whole time. ANYWHO...that's it!

Just bundled up.This was that time we decided to ship him to Alaska...JK.Wha...how'd that get in there...I love these pictures!
