Roman turned 2 on December 16th.
I knew December was going
to be a crazy month so
I went the easy way out and had
his birthday party at Monkey Joe's.
Roman LOVES Monkey Joe's!
Anywhere he is allowed to run and
jump freely is perfect for him!
It also was great for me too.
They only allow people
to bring in cake and party favors, nothing else!
So it kept my creative
juices from overflowing
or as Jared would say, it kept me
from going overboard with a theme!
(and since I did plan the party on Lottie's due
date it was good I was creatively strapped!)
Gue made the birthday boy
I opted for cupcakes.
Roman, unlike his sisters, hasn't hit the
My friend Haley made these
delicious chocolate 2's!
I had big plans to make sock monkeys for all
the kids as party favors but I ran out of time.
After searching all over T-town and here
for a bakery that even knew what a sock monkey was,
my mom found these adorable
cookies at LuLu's here in town!
They made great party favors
and they were delicious!
(I highly recommend LuLu's)
Roman had a blast!
Roman was blessed to have family
drive over to celebrate his birthday!
Pop and Gue came!
Nina and Preacher were there!
and Uncle Gab!
Of course everyone wanted
to meet and hold Lottie!
But Roman did not mind because he
was too busy playing with his friends,
and simply having fun with everyone!
Libby, Nixon, and Fallon
Roman even got
to meet Monkey Joe!
When it was time to eat and open up
gifts he got to sit on
the big inflatable throne!
We sang to him and he
blew out his candles!
The kids ate cupcakes and ice-cream!
Everyone enjoyed the party!
The cupcakes were delicious!
Roman got some cool gifts!
We tried getting a family picture....
a little hard with 4 kids!
Even little Lottie had a good
time at her 1st birthday party!
Below are several pics we
snapped of the kids before we left for the party!
My favorite of Roman!
I love that I was able to give Roman a
birthday party he really enjoyed!
Roman has been a joy the past two years!
He has allowed his sisters to paint his
finger nails, put bows in his hair and
dress him up like a princess!
I don't think the girls realize that all
of this will soon come to an
end as he grows older.
He loves his sisters!
He calls Isla "LaLa"
and Lottie "Baby".
I have been a little worried that he
does not talk much at all compared
to other two year olds but the doc
assures me it is only because his sisters
do all the talking for him!
With all his surroundings being pink
he still proves to be 100% boy!
He loves balls, bats, cars, and animals.
He loves anything that makes a loud noise,
his preferred instrument is a pot and spoon!
Roman is my baby boy and as
many mothers told me, there is nothing
like a mommy and her baby boy.
We love him so much and are
blessed to have him in our lives!
I look forward to watching him grow.
We all know he will make the best husband
one day after dealing with all his sisters!
Happy 2nd Birthday to our baby boy!
