You are 9!

My first born son is 9. (His birthday was July 11, but I am just now getting around to doing this post!) In case anyone is doing the math, that is half way to 18. Oh my! How can it be? It has gone by in the blink of an eye!

We started celebrating the birthday on July 4th. My family all came over and we had a cake for Wyatt. The following Sunday was his actual birthday. Lance and I took him to see Despicable Me and my parents kept Reid. Then this past weekend, he had his first sleepover party. He had 5 boys spend the night. It was "interesting" to say the least. They were really good, but I think that will be our first and last sleepover party.

Wyatt got an iTouch for his birthday. He never had a Nintendo DS or any other handheld devices, so I decided this was more bang for your buck! And the games are a lot cheaper too. He actually got it in May before we went to the beach.

He also got these two books. If you have little boys in your life who love animals, these books are THE BEST! Wyatt has 4 of them now. I actually found these 2 on clearance at Borders. He LOVES these books about animals. The first 2 he received for Christmas have started falling apart!

My firstborn, Hannah, turned 9 in June . . . I agree, the years have gone by in a blink of the eye! :)

Hi, I'm here from Jenna's Journey. Your post caught my eye because I just posted about my daugher's 12th birthday (which was in June!). The time does fly, even between celebrations!

He is too cute...Happy Birthday. 1/2 way to 18. Ugh, they grow up way too fast. I got my little boys shirt at TJ Maxx last year. It is one of his favorites.

First, your blog background is PRECIOUS.
Second, My oldest is about to turn two and I feel like it has gone by soooo stinking fast. I can't even imagine 9!! The Itouch is just genious! No $60 per game there!
Third, Reid (I obviously love the name since that is my son's name) is too cute! Such a fun age.
