We celebrated a special 6 year old this week. He has been reminding us for the last 2 months that he will be 6 in October so I have been preparing myself. We decided to celebrate with Grandparents in North Carolina for the weekend.
Here’s our week . . .
Silas took this. I was impressed with the composition.
These two annoy each other and they fight a lot. Silas asked me this week, “Mom, can you put him to bed?” Since it was 8 am I told him he has a bit until its time for his nap. Pretty sure Jonas learned one of his first words “NO!” from Silas.Making Halloween treats.
Silas helped make Brooks’ cake.
Opening presents. Brooks couldn’t wait. It was like Christmas morning.
The cake. He wanted a cake with lava and Darth Vader and light sabres. So here it is. It was awesome.
Brooks – You are so full of energy, questions, opinions, and did I mention energy? We love your forgiving heart, your quest for knowledge, and your excitment for your brothers. You were the one who started this whole Mom business and raising you has been somewhat of a guessing game. Not sure of our decisions, but hoping for the best. You are so eager to please and hope your perfection for life doesn’t hinder you – its okay to make mistakes, we learn from them. The thoughtful questions you ask and your interest in knowledge of all things has kept us on our toes. I have loved seeing your interests start to bloom. You are an incredible kid and I am so thankful God entrusted us with you. We love you!
He really liked the cake. And he loved that he got to keep the figures on top.
Mimi made an orange cake by adding oranges to the cake and the frosting.
So blue. We welcomed this sky after weeks of rain.
Building Tegu boats in the Dr. office.
I rode both boys to the pharmacy this week in a skirt. As long as the weather is okay and the distance isn’t too far, I am going to try to ride.
Laughing with Silas over joke books – his favorite genre.
Brooks sometimes comes into our room at 11 pm and this is what he does.
Oh no. I walked into the kitchen because it was so quiet. This is what I found.
Mark and I did some chocolate tasting one morning – alone!
See you next week!
