One Big Boy and One Little Tea pot...

Murphy got to do some very big boy things last weekend with some of his friends. Its amazing how fast they have all changed. I am so glad he got to do something fun (even though he wasn't feeling 100%) was good for him to have an outing that doesnt entail a doctor appointment. Poor Murphy has been through it these past couple of weeks and it looks like there is more to come. Pray for our guy, as we deal with his monster tonsils. It looks like we will be getting them out in a few weeks...I cant imagine putting him through all of this, so pray for his momma and daddy to while you're at it! I am posting a video of one of our tea pots. Both of the babies have taken the little tea pot song to a new level. You never know when you are holding one and they just decide "its time to tip over and pour out"...they think its hilarious. So if you ever run into a baby that is leaning all the way over with their head almost to the floor, he/she is mine, and yes, they are tea pots (this week atleast)...

"I love Lucy (Madden)"

So for those of you who have met Madden, you know she is quite the character...always busy, chatting, and in everyone's (especially her big brother's business). She is quite the little delight. This video was taken last weekend...we thought it was hilarious, it went on and on but here's a snippet...oh the simple things that allow us to feel the joy God has given us...

So we were sitting in the den last night...

watching American Idol ( the babies love a good dance off with their daddy and me)...I set Murphy down (to catch my breath...) and looked over to find him "on the phone".  I asked him who he was talking to and he gave me this look like-you are so silly momma and said "ippah" translation=Skipper.  I asked him if he wanted to call CC and Skipper, so we called, Skipper answered and Murphy loved getting to chat before bed, I think Skipper might have enjoyed it as well...
The other pictures our of the little tink tink-she's going to be 50 weeks old this Friday.  She and Murphy usually go down for their naps around the same time, but most days she is up much earlier than him.  That's momma and madden time.  She's in a stage right now where she doesn't want me out of her sight.  I must say it's pretty flattering and I don't mind obliging her one bit, especially with this little smile looking back at me...melts my heart everytime.

Murphy is 2!

Well it's official, our little guy is 2 years old!  What a big boy...makes me wonder where the time has gone and it's so much fun to look back at all of our precious memories we have already.   We spent the big birthday day with our little man and Madden. Murphy woke up to balloons tied around his crib and his high chair, after a bit of confusion, his face lit up...he was beaming when he figured out that all the fun was just for him.
 We went to a make-up music class with Mr. Joe-music class makes our little guy's feet dance and his heart happy so it was a great way to start celebrating.  Murphy spends the entire class inching his way closer and closer to Mr. Joe until finally they are sitting feet to feet and he feels like it's just Murphy and Mr. Joe in the room.  Then we stopped to get a cheese quesadilla and a quick happy birthday song in Spanish before the babies went down for a nap.  We had dinner at Old Venice with more presents and more fun...Murphy felt very loved and we were thrilled.  Our special boy had such a special birthday.  I wish everyday could be like this, it was just perfect.  Happy Happy birthday little angel!

The birthday cake...about as Yo Gabba Gabba as I could get...!
Murphy got a real guitar and a big drum just like Mr. Joe's

Murphy reading "dont bite your friends" to Hadley
Murphy hated his birthday hat...2nd year in a row, you'd think I would learn...

BB was sneaking Madden a little cake...she was exhausted but nothing a little icing couldnt fix...

104 weeks...

Some of you are probably laughing at the title of this post, (but if you dont know what the title means, yes I have a picture in the bathtub of everyweek until my babies turn 1 and every month even now), and yes I do know this is crazy, but I can't help it....they change so much so quickly. I have been putting off really thinking about Murphy's big day that's coming up this weekend (don't get me wrong I have all the yo gabba gabba decor I could get my hands on)but to really think about having spent 2 years with this little boy is completely overwhelming to me.
2 years ago, our family was blessed with Murphy. I mean blessed in every sense of the word. He has taught me so much in just two years. He is honestly pure joy in my life. He is funny, loving, smart, and everything a mother could want. The past 2 years have changed my life in ways I never though possible, and I am so thankful to our sovereign God and His plan for me to be Murphys momma. My little "heaven joy" (and yes he does respond to this name sometimes) is such an example of how much God loves us. As he grows up, I am growing with him, he will start school this Spring and somehow I will have to be the one to drive him there and actually leave him twice a week (hopefully I will be able to see through my tears!)
Saturday is a big day for the Culpeppers, we are celebrating our little angel's birthday...I can't even put into words the love and gratitude I feel for him. I thank God for him everyday...get ready for some birthday pictures!

Hop, Hop, Hop

We had so much fun this weekend, we loved waking up to all of our goodies from the Easter bunny..(despite our bad behavior last week)! Momma must have had to pull some strings to get him to stop by out house! The only problem now is that the Easter bunny left a wand for Madden at CC and Skipper's house...she wont let it out of her sight, we might be in trouble!
