First Mullet

Like Drayton's first rattail, Drayton's first mullet was a proud moment for us as parents.  Call me crazy, but I think it is a great birthday tradition.

Last time to touch those sweet curls!

He might look like a sweet angel, but the moment I finished cutting the mullet, he got an Attitude with a capital A!  It was like he just knew he had to be a brat.  Anyways, the next day was his little party in the park.  He got what every boy wants.  A giant fruit tray.  Seriously though, he loves him some strawberries and began shoveling them in his mouth as fast as he could.

I mean, just behold the glory.

For his birthday, we gave him his very favorite: burger and fries.  He goes crazy over french fries.  We also gave him the rest of his haircut.

Then, he got to go pick out some fish.

And finally, he opened "birfday pesents!"  If you ask him how old he is, he says "pesents".

He is such a sweet little guy.  We are truly thankful for the blessing he is.

Oh how the years go by

Drayton is 2!!!  What!?? It has been 2 of the best years.  I have laughed and cried more in these 2 years than ever in my life (excluding 7th grade).  So, for my own stroll down memory lane, here is a short review of the last 2 years.  I promise I won't do this many pictures every year.

I love this sonogram!  I feel like it still looks so much like him and just at 15 weeks!

1 year ago!

So this is already long enough and his birthday mullet deserves its own post.  That's right.  I said birthday mullet.

In the meantime. . .

So, I recently visited my cousin Laura in Los Angeles and left my camera there. It had all my Christmas pictures (all 5 of them) on there so while I am waiting to do my Christmas post, here is what we've been up to lately!

The Little Engine that could is a new favorite!

We've been playing in a lot of leaves!

learning to cook

taking senior pictures

He loves to be chased!

big ol fuzzy head in the morning

love that little face!

more leaves

We've had lots of cousin time!  Caden and Tate are helping drayton learn how to share.  Sharing is hard.

Drayton's favorite new skill is drinking out of a "beeg cup".  He does pretty well most times!

group baths are the best (when you are a kid)

Gobble gobble

We had the best time in Tennessee for Thanksgiving!  We got to see all of our Nashville cousins (I guess I forgot to take pictures)  and then we headed east to Rogersville to Grandma and Grandpa Saunders house.  Drayton had so much fun and so did we!  Can't wait til we get to go back again.
Love sweet cousin time!

some excited boys waiting to go on a tractor ride

Grandma and Grandpa had a huge pear tree.  Drayton enjoyed pilfering through the rotten ones on the ground.

Tate grew a little impatient with the 3 mph ride

definitely not the most flattering picture of Drayton I've ever seen

Drayton LOVED the tractor!  He really loved getting to drive it with Grandpa.

he hates messy hands
