There are a lot of birthdays this summer!
Jasmine and Harris's late in life baby, Oliver Frankson turns 1. His parents are not looking forward to the toddler years and the upcoming terrible twos. But at least this is the last time they will go through this, they swear!
Andrew and Elphy are so thankful that Madaline turns 1!
They have a family only birthday party
due to her premature status
and the danger of germs. When she is older and more stable, they hope to have a larger gathering so she can play with her cousins and extended family.
Coraline turns 1 right before her parents' senior year of secondary school. She's thoroughly spoiled by her grandparents and numerous aunts and uncles.
The Wilsonoff twins Saniyah
and Aniyah turn 1. Their tired parents still struggle with having three very young children so close in age and go through a lot of coffee.
Victor Peterson turns 1 and is the apple of his father's eye. Brandon has been spending lots of time with his children, especially Victor, since he missed so many milestones while he was away at war.
The Mendenhall triplets Charlotte,
Sara, Alan and big brother Evan are celebrating
Elisa Phillips turning 5. She was able to have a small shopping spree at the toy store and a fully remodeled bedroom. Nothing but the best for their baby girl.
Abigal Carr celebrates her 12th birthday
Vivenne Humphrey turns 12
and her cousin, Robin Wren also turns 12. The family makes them a small boxed cake and homemade cards, including one from Vivenne's father, Walt.
After a huge birthday gala, Sazo celebrates his 60th birthday
discussing retirement plans with his wife.
He promises that he will partially retire when he is 65 and fully retire when he is 70.
To appease her, he promises a lavish vacation this year, just the two of them. They also agree to start considering a home with only one level. Right now they are able to move about the three story townhome, but soon they know that weak knees and joints will hinder their progress.
Ming and Benjamin are excited about their pregnancy. They have decided to be surprised by the gender.
Johan and new wife, Zoe are nervous about becoming parents to twins so late in life.
Krissy and Alphonso welcome their newest,
and hopefully last, child, Pietro.
He arrives as they celebrate 10 years of being married.
Si'Enya and Trevor Yates welcome their firstborn in a very dramatic fashion. Hours and hours of labor, followed by quick pushing, heart decelerations, double wrapped cords, third degree tearing, multiple stitches and to their relief, a crying baby!
They name their son, Kane.
