Happy Birthday Gunner Michael Orange!!!!

I can't believe it! My baby is 1! This year has flown! Don't get me wrong.... 3 is a HUGE change and BUSY and DIFFERENT....but WOW..... It is amazing how much you can still love another one... in a whole new way! I can't imagine our life, our family without him. He is our calm, our chill, our happy, our content, our sweetie pie, our pickier eater, our dancer, our funny.... the list goes on... of what he is. He loves his Daddy and his Noah. They bring a different kind of smile to him and it melts my heart! You know he loves his Mama b/c that is just how little boys are! :) He is a cuddler... and I LOVE IT! He goes with the flow and people in public stop and say all the time, "He is so calm" and "Wow, he just sits there!" I know, I know.... reasons why we love him even more! :) Our family had a wonderful celebration of his bday... laid back, relaxed bday with just us. Lunch was La Hacienda Ranch.... wow.... we wait too long in between to go there! Love that place! It was a perfect day! The kiddo still prefers baby food over table and is full blown walking and looks adorable in jeans! :) Stay tuned for his first haircut! :) Have a wonderful week!
Like I said, He prefers baby food! He didn't care two flips about the cake! Scrunched his nose when we sang Happy Bday! It was sooo funny and soo different from the other two kiddos!

These are my loves! Oh How I Love Them!
