It's a healthy baby BOY!!

The day I anxiously awaited finally arrived! I impatiently awaited to find out the gender of all my babies, but this time I was literally wanting to crawl out of my skin by the time THE DAY finally arrived. Why was this so different?? This is our last (or what we plan to be our last). Maybe God has different plans, but we've always wanted 3 babies...regardless of the gender. So this time I would finally know what my family would be!!! Would it be "My Three Sons" or two sons and a diva?? I know everyone expects me to say I want a girl...believe me I've heard it even before I was pregnant with our 3rd baby. I could amost see people's face change when I responded, "I'll be happy with either". It's almost like some people thought something was wrong with me for NOT having this overwhelming need for a girl. Don't get me wrong...I would take a girl just the same. I love little girls and their cute dresses just as much as the next person, but I was truly happy and content to receive whatever God was willing to give me.

So....without further's pictures of our new baby BOY!!! Due September 5th, but will most likely make his appearance at the end of August via c-section. He's already measuring 6 days ahead...just like his big brothers!!

Speaking of big brothers...Aiden was super excited and SO proud to tell all his friends about his new little brother.  And Max...sweet little Max responded, "Thank you mommy for making me a boy".  As for probably won't see him for a's going to take him a few days to land back on earth! 

So, if you're asking...."Are you happy?"  YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!  I'm over the moon to have another snuggly baby boy to cuddle.  Another boy to call me princess, another boy to say I'm beautiful, another boy to want mommy to fix HIS boo boos, another boy to look up to their AWESOME daddy, another boy to run, scream, kick, yell, wrestle, catch bugs, get dirty and do BOY things...and yes...even get time outs in the middle of public.  I love it all and wouldn't trade it for anything! 

Now if we only had a name and fabric for a be continued...

Hungry Caterpillar!!

I must say, this hungry caterpillar cake was one of the funnest cakes I've made!!  I didn't just get to make some cute shapes...I got to paint!  And better yet, to match the book I got to be messy and paint!  The boys were so excited all week when I was making the cake, we read the book more that week that we had in the past year!  It is a great book...and an awesome party idea!

Here are some GREAT pics from Miss Ella's Hungry Caterpillar party.  Her mommy did an absolutely amazing job at putting together all the little details to make this party truly precious! 

If you're wondering about the amazing photography and the rest of the party details...head on over to Hana's Blog !  You can link to her photography website from there and see all the party details too!

Thanks Hana for giving me the opportunity to make your cake for such a special party!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!

Happy Birthday Andrew!!

Happy Birthday Andrew!  I love being able to make cakes and be a special part of birthday celebrations...especially a first birthday!!!  It's hard to believe Andrew is 1 already.  I know we say that with every baby...just goes to show how fast time really does fly!
I hope everyone enjoyed the cake and spoiled the little birthday boy rotten!
