Tiger is Almost One!

I am so sad to say that in a week from this very day is my babies 1st birthday, boo hoo. I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Halloween has already come and gone. Am I alone in this? I for see a migraine from all the crying I will be doing, heck I am already tearing up just writing this. In the last month he has learned to give high fives, kind of say a couple words, almost take a step on his own and of course standing on his very own. I do have to say that I feel so very priviledged to be his mom, he is such a joy (when he's not teething anyway, ha, ha). Be prepared for a lot of pictures next week. We are having a huge birthday bash for him and I know he will love it and have a blast.

Quick joke- How do you know a perfectionist has had three kids?

-She lets the last one have his own birthday cake...pudum, pum.

No seriously folks this is a stretch for me.

Manti is still not walking on his own; I guess that is good and bad. I've learned by the third not to rush anything.
Look at that cutie patootie.

Here's to you Babe!

5 Things He Loves:
1. Me, of course! That's how this whole thing got started.

4.Music, he tells people at work that some of the music on his i pod was for me when I hadn't even heard of them yet.

2.Work out, pretty much daily. Gotta work off those Krispy Kremes.

Quarky Things About Him:
1. He doesn't like the water, and yes, he is Polynesian; how do you explain that?
2. He likes corvettes, mustangs are better! He's trained Eve to know them and like them and I'm working on Jackson.
3. He can eat a whole cheesecake or pumpkin pie on his own.
4. He does awesome imitation voices that make me laugh and sometimes creep me out, Mr. old man from the Family Guy. NO! I do not want any pop sickles.
5. He won't get dressed for Sunday until we all have coordinating outfits. It is so bad that we have had multiple people at church ask us about it and then they have said they think about our rule when they get ready for church. "It's not bad aye, I like it" as King Julian says.
