A Celebration for Mama and Me!

My Aunt Angie, Aunt Tricia, and Pseudo-Aunt Happe hosted the celebration of the year! It was SO AWESOME!! The only thing that would have made it better if I was already out of mommy’s tummy to say thank you! The theme was “Little Man Knox” and the place was decorated with navy blue and kelly green accents and bow ties! Bunches of mommy and daddy’s friends & family came out to celebrate me. I am for sure the most loved baby-to-be/ladies man for sure!

Dear Baby Knox…

Mama and I were showered in gifts! We were overwhelmed! I believe 1/3 of the gift pile came from Grandma and Grandpa Phillips. One of my favorite gifts is my new navy blue rocking chair. I can’t wait to use it!!

Tram made me a diaper cake.

I love hand-made gifts! Nina hand-made onesies for each month of my first year so mommy can measure how big I am getting. I also received an “ABC” blanket and hand-made bib from Great Grandma Slone, as well as, a cross-stitched tractor/truck quilt from Great Grandma Phillips! Great Grandmas are the best!!

All the guests left with Little Man soaps as a thank you gift for coming to celebrate me!

Mommy & Daddy are forever grateful for everyone coming! They have amazing friends and the best families! I can’t wait to meet everyone in a month! See you soon!


What a day we had! We started by meeting Nana and Papa for a healthy breakfast at McDonald’s in Herndon and then headed to the Manassas Wine and Jazz Festival to watch Grandpa play in his band, Kitty and the Fat Cats!

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy-O!

Daddy, Nana, and Papa cooked dinner for the whole family! Mm mm, Ribs, Hot Dogs, and Chicken!

My cousin Adora chose to eat red popsicles instead

My cousin Caelyn played with all of the toys her brother and her gave to me!

My cousin Liam loves to dress up as super heroes! I definitely want to be like him when I grow up!

Uncle Sean got awesome headphones, Papa got an iPad 2, and Daddy got a few gifts from mama and me!

First, he got a Daddy Survival Kit

There was all types of stuff in it that daddy is going to need when I arrive!

Mom and I also got him a Joe Rocket Jacket and a motorcycle stand for his bike. He was very surprised and loved his first father’s day! Love you Daddy!

I love my Aunt Tricia, Mommy, Aunt Angie, Nana, and Papa! Thanks for a wonderful day!
