Leyton Turns 4!

Happy Happy 4th Birthday to our little Leyton....I can't believe he is 4 years old! Where does the time go? Leyton has been waiting for his birthday for months now...you don't know how many times he said "mom...it will never be my birthday"...well it was finally here and we have been celebrating since last Thursday...starting with his birthday party at school! I was able to go to his class and spend the day with him and watched as his class shower him with birthday wishes! He loved being the center of attention...literally!
Leyton and his teacher, Mrs. SchmidtMrs. Schmidt has a singing bear that the birthday boy/girl gets to press 3 times...they get a kick out of this! video
Then is BIG birthday party was Saturday and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! We have been having so much rain here in Houston and we lucked out with blue skies on his party day! He had a Cars themed party and he had blast with all of his friends and loved every minute that it was "HIS" day!

Here are the kids bobbing for apples...I don't have any pictures of it, but after the game was over Leyton decided it would be fun to sit in the bucket of water!
The wind was blowing so hard we couldn't keep the candles lit!

Leyton and Gammy
Ash didn't want to jump in the baby jump house...he wanted to be in the big one with the big kids!

And I had to show off my cute little favors that I spent long hours making...Hershey Bars personalized just for Leyton!
Leyton and his presents!
He was nice enough to let Ash help him open them!
and even shared them with him! Wow...progress!

My Little Man

Ashton and Leyton both go to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays but only Leyton goes on Wednesdays. When it's my friend Andrea's turn for carpool and picks up Leyton, Ashton cries and cries because he wants to go too! Poor baby...he doesn't understand why that on some days she picks them both up and on others she only picks up Leyton! He throws a huge temper tantrum and I always have to take him for a walk to get his mind off this detrimental situation that he thinks he is in. This day after our walk he wanted to put out the LSU chairs that Mimi and Poppy brought us and sit on the porch! I do feel sorry for him when his brother leaves but how do I love the one on one time I get to spend with my little man!
Mission accomplished...looks like he is over his brother leaving!

Crazy Hat Day

Leyton had crazy hat day at school and since he never wears a hat I had to pull out an old favor hat from his 2nd birthday and let him decorate it with Halloween stickers! He is making progress: 1.) he is wearing the hat and 2.) he is smiling and looking at the camera!!! YEAH!!

Put Me In Coach...

Leyton started t-ball this past week and he is actually very excited about it...in fact he has NEVER let us put a baseball hat on him but now that he started baseball he doesn't want to take the hat off! My little man is growing up so fast! It's sad to say that we didn't make it onto the LSU team...sadly we are the Florida Gators :(
He looks so grown up! Seeing him in his uniform brought tears to my eyes.
In the dugout...
One of our good friends is the coach...and I was very impressed with the name organization in the dugout that he made...good job Craig!
Leyton played left field...but he mainly just stood there and swung his glove around and around.

Glenn was trying to help him out with the basics
Ash and Hadley watching their brothers
Then Ash got bored and went on to flirt with his friend, Fiona.
and she goes in for the first move...and then another...
Leyton up to bat...
and he swings...
and he HITS IT...
and he runs straight over the pitchers mound to 2nd base....not 1st...just straight to 2nd! Too funny!

Can't wait for the next game!
