myles turns 4

To that little boy that made me a mom, I love you.

Being a mom has been one of the hardest but most rewarding experiences of my life. I can still remember bringing Myles home from the hospital and feeling so overwhelmed with joy, anxiety and fear. Now looking back I can definitely say it wasn't so bad but when I was there in the moment with a new baby in my arms I was pretty overwhelmed. Not to mention the hormones, man those suck.

So here we are four years later celebrating your birthday. I just can't believe it because sometimes when I look at you I still see that chubby little baby. You are not a baby anymore, you are a full blown big boy.

We signed him up for 4k last month and I know he is ready to go to school. I am excited for him because he is eager to learn and make new friends. So I wanted share with you all some of his favorite things because I know I will forget and I want to be able to look back at these later.

  • Loves exploring 
  • Learning about the solar system
  • Favorite movies to watch right now are Despicable Me one and two plus the Minions movie. 
  • Loves trains
  • Making a mess with play dough
  • Slicing up pretend fruits
  • Cars that change colors in cold and hot water
  • Loves writing with chalk 
  • Making letters out of blocks, cars or anything that he can find
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Now for my favorite part, pictures of this big guy. I might have gotten a little teary eyed while sorting through all of them. Get ready for a lot of pictures.

February was a slow month around here but I am ok with that because as I wake up each morning I try to remind myself that this life I have chosen is good. Sure my kids drive me crazy most days but I still love them. I have to remind myself that this season in my life will not last forever. Before I know it they will not need me anymore. But I hope that they need me in another way. A shoulder to cry on a mom that will listen to their problems, their dreams.

So my birthday was in February and this year there were no big plans no agenda just me and my boys. We headed off to a nice brunch that morning and got very lucky with a restaurant that was not very busy. My birthday is on valentines day and as you know that day restaurants can be quite busy. Another year wiser, 32 is going to be a good year.

Here are some snaps from February as part of my project 365. Enjoy.
