Well, again, I have fallen way behind! I have so much to post for this summer, so you may have lots of posts coming your way over the next month! #sorrynotsorry
Miss Payton loves herself some blackberries, and every single trail around us has a zillion blackberry bushes. Poor Miles is not a fan. So every time we head out on a walk, Payton gets so excited for a yummy snack along the way…while Miles is less than thrilled lol. Though he does enjoy picking the berries for Mama.
So for the first time ever, we packed up and headed to a Raspberry Farm, because raspberries are one of the few fruits that Miles actually likes! I think we have found a new summer tradition! We met up with our best friends and spent a good hour picking, eating, and sharing plenty of giggles. I’m pretty sure we all ate our weight in raspberries that day! And in case you are wondering, fresh raspberries off the vine are sooooo amazing! The kids were amazed at how much bigger and jucier they are compared to the ones you buy at the grocery store.
We ate them fresh for a couple days at home, but were heading out of town so didn’t have time to make anything yummy with them. Instead we froze them and throw handfuls of them into smoothies!
Maybe next year we will go for Strawberries too!
Happiest of Birthdays to my little dude. I can’t believe you are 5! I can’t believe we don’t have any more toddlers running around. I asked you if you would stay little forever and you told me “No way!! I’m going to get bigger and bigger and next year I will be 21! But Mama I will always be your baby.” You always know what sweet words to say to make my Mama heart happy. You even cuddled on into me as you said that. That is one thing you are very good at…loving, caring, hugging, and snuggles. Believe me, you definitely have your “boy moments” but those extra comfy cuddles always make it all better.
A little bit about you…your favorite color is still yellow. Your best friend is Gracie Macie. You love hair cuts and going to the dentist. You love chicken nuggets, meatballs, and spaghetti. You can’t stand any vegetables and most fruits. You love to drive Payton crazy but you can’t live without her…you would spend every waking second with her if you could. You love to make people laugh, you are a little ham for sure. You are so caring and loving, when people ask you a question about yourself, you almost always ask them the same question back about themselves. You love rain boots, and any clothing that is soft and fuzzy. You have a favorite coat: we call it your rainbow coat…I’m going to be super sad when it doesn’t fit anymore.
You are one amazing kiddo. I am so proud of the little guy you are becoming. May you always be brave, be silly, be your own magic, be present, be full of love, be full of surprises, be full of laughs, be adventurous, be kind, be my baby, be you.
I love you, love you, love you, love you more than you will ever know.
Happy Birthday my little dude.
