Sturgis Falls 2013

The last weekend of June every year is a busy one for the town of Cedar Falls. Colors of Summer is the theme and the event is Sturgis Falls. This 4 day event is like a fair, parade, band concerts and shows all smooshed into one BIG event. They start early in the morning and go all night into the wee early hours of the next day. We have concerts, art shows, car shows, marathons, parades, talent shows, carnival rides, crafts, food, and more music. 

Tonight after Mike and I got off work, we picked Sullivan up and headed over to Overman Park to watch the kiddie parade. This parade isn't much, but it's very cute. Kids of all ages dress up in costume along with their parents and walk, ride, or get carried down the 4 block parade waving and smiling to all the viewers. Sullivan is very much a people watcher and loved every bit of being out in the action.  After the 20 minute parade ended we headed into the park square to listen to the kids choir sing. 

I'm sure we will be back to all the events but in the meantime Sullivan needs his beauty rest for his 1 year pictures tomorrow. One week from tomorrow our little man will be one. I still have mixed feelings about him turning one. My baby isn't a baby anymore. Hopefully the weather will be nice and Sullivan will be all smiles.

It's a great day to celebrate!

Today is a special day, it a day to give extra love to your dads, husband and grandpas. Father's Day is so special because it's the one day out of the year besides their birthday that it is celebrated just for them. Unlike all the other holidays where kids and mothers are showered with love, Father's day puts all the light on daddies.

I feel very special to have such great men in my life. I have a wonderful dad, more special than anyone elses. A husband that knocks out all others and very important and special father-in-law, brother and brother-in-law. So Happy Father's Day! I/Sullivan/We all love you very much and hope you had a great day.

Do you think my tractor is sexy??

We finally got our mini van and are back to 2 vehicles. So of course this weekend we broke it in with a little drive. On the way back to Cedar Falls we stopped by my dad's shop in New Hampton. Sullivan was eyeing these toy tractors from the moment we stepped in the door. After talking with my dad for a bit he took us over to take a better look at them. Aren't these the cutest thing?? Of course we have to try them all out and Sullivan was loving every bit of it.

11 months old

Sullivan turned 11 months old on Thursday. My weeks are still busy so I'm a little late on the posting. It seems our monthly shots are getting more and more difficult but luckily I have only one more to go. Gosh this year is a little bittersweet. Happy that my boy is getting big and growing but sad that he's not a baby anymore. 

Here's what happening in Sullivan's life at 11 months old:

  • eats only table food
  • has a bottle in the morning and a bottle at night but otherwise drinks milk from a sippy cup
  • has cut down on milk and now enjoys snacks at daycare
  • has 6 teeth (4 up top and 2 on the bottom)
  • can say dada, mama, mo mo (for more)
  • waves bu-bye
  • shakes head no when you tell him no
  • can sign more
  • loves hide and go seek
  • loves watching daddy mow lawn
  • still loves music
  • sometimes stands by himself
  • walk behind things
  • favorite foods: spaghetti, cooked carrots, cheerios, bellina's 3 faced sandwiches, string cheese
