On July 17, 2010 our family was blessed with a cute, blond haired, blue eyed, 7 1/2 pound bundle....and we had no idea what we were in for :)
Conner may very well be one of the funniest, silliest, most energetic and loud people I have known. He is brave and daring and adventurous as they come. He was climbing tables and scaling countertops as soon as he could walk, and he hasn't stopped since!
Conner also give the best hugs EVER! His tiny little body just melts right into you. I have never know such a sweet, affectionate, cuddly little guy. He will reach out to stroke his sisters hair while she watches cartoons, just because he can't help himself. If you sit on the couch you are sure to find this little head in your lap within seconds. Though he may seem all rough and tumble, he is incredibly sensitive and easily affected. He has a heart of gold and makes my days happier, brighter and better just by being in them. I can't imagine my world without this sweet boy. We love our Con to pieces!
Birthday's around the McKamey household go a little something like this....you wake up to find your room covered in balloons and decorations up around the house.
All your birthday gifts and cards are spread out on the table for you to admire all day while you anxiously wait to be able to open.
The birthday child gets to pick our activities, treats and meals for the day. Conner chose to swim (no great surprise), wanted a push pop for the afternoon and then off to lazy dog for dinner. Before going to dinner we let him open one present....dress up and weaponry for the orange ninja turtle!
Next, Dad had a little surprise up his sleeve...
Build-A-Bear!!! The other big kids had had their chance last year, so it was rightfully Conner's turn. At first it looked as though he was going to go for a ninja turtle...
But the turtle was ditched for a cute, classic black bear! (good choice Con!)
Conner stuffed him with stuffing, did a cute little rhyme while giving him a heart, checked to make sure he was soft and cuddly enough, brushed him and dressed him. He was very attentive through the whole process and made sure not to rush anything!
The end result....a very happy Conner boy with his birthday present Flame, the firefighting bear.
Then it was home for cake and ice cream and presents!
Conner was very specific about wanting rainbow confetti cupcakes with white frosting, so that is what we gave him.
The next day Grammy and Pa came by to celebrate with the birthday boy as well. He was lucky enough to score a real Jedi robe from them for his birthday! Such a little stud!
Happy Birthday to our sweet Conner boy. We love you more than you will ever know and thank God every day for trusting us to be yours!
