Can I just take a moment to say what an awesome dad Mike is? He is incredibly fun-loving and has no trouble stopping whatever he’s doing to play with our boys. It’s one of the things that I love about this man, and boy am I thankful my boys get him for a dad.
When I lived in Durham, I had a personal project (inspired by Jon Canlas) to document the town I lived in. It was so fun getting to know the place I called home, and I ended up with some images that are on my walls now to remind me of a dear place.
Now that we’re in Kansas City, I plan to do the same thing. From time to time, you’ll see a photo of this new home of mine– KCMO. I hope you enjoy!
It’s official: I have a three-year-old. Noah has come so far this year and grown so much! He now carries on whole conversations with us, and he absolutely loves playing and watching soccer. Wherever we go, he finds a ball and begins kicking it (regardless of its size or purpose).
He is a thoughtful kid already. If I don’t feel well, he notices and asks “are you ok, Mommy?” He is so perceptive of his brother’s status, and if Jude is crying, he tells me, “go feed Judah!” He absolutely loves reading before bed, and already barters for us to read more books each night– definitely his father’s son.
With all the change that’s happened in his life this year– a huge move, a new brother– he has handled it like a champ. Of course, he’s a toddler, and we’ve had our hard days, but I am so proud of the little boy he has become.
Happy birthday, sweet one! I love you!
My brother and sister-in-law hosted a party for him on Friday, and it was so fun to celebrate with family that had never been able to be there for his birthday before! Judah got in lots of snuggles, too.
Enjoy watching a video I put together of Noah’s third year:
