our littlest :: a month shy of two...

our silly little pumpkin is turning two in a month! 

we still don't have birthday plans for him. we thought about traveling.. but he wants to be around for his birthday party in school. (he's been waiting forever!) so we'll have to figure it out somehow!! 

if this is how life is headed, i'm super excited! i could sit and gush all day about him. but here are a few things we love about our little guy. 

- he's very sensitive. doesn't like people falling sick. if anyone has a booboo, he needs to go make them feel better. and if he gets to a part of the story that he doesn't like (like when elsa froze her sister), he will stop you and make you retell the tale! lol

- he's inherited my enthusiasm for gifting. on our way out to grandma's funeral, he was fumbling around because he wanted to bring a pressie for "ah dou". he finally picked a home-made pink butterfly from styrofoam keeper. it was one bright spark on a particularly gloomy day....

- he's a funny boy. his sense of humor is through the roofs. he is always up to no good and will break into a song (usually happy birthday) or a squiggley dance if he thinks you're looking sad. 

- he's chattybums. for real. and he has the most process drive train of thought. just like his dad. its pretty cute to hear him itemize what he needs to do to achieve his desired outcome (95% to do with food in his tummy). 

- he's greedyguts. for real. big time. 

- he's sharp. and has mastered the art of negotiation. his dad is rather pleased.

we're not quite sticklers for report cards. i like laughing about how much he ate or who his latest bff are but don't usually pay attention to what they're learning, write a thesis for his teacher or his developmental milestones (we all get there don't we?) but one report that made me all gooey inside was very short. "blake is very loved by us teachers." 

simple. sweet. and pretty much all you need in life.

we love you too, pumpkin!



  1. you have such a lovely boy! and that note from the teachers, you must have been all melt-ey inside!
