We had a fun month. Our big guy, Brady, finished kindergarten. I have felt all year long that I was adjusting to the fact that he was in "big school" and now his first year is over. .
(Brady's last day of kindergarten)Maddox is cruising. He is getting brave in his walking. I think he is ready to let go and would do fine, he just doesn't know it yet.
(Maddox sporting a dew rag)Evan is three - preschool age - sending him off next year just doesn't seem right. He still seems so little and still talks like such a little guy. Babies don't go to school! In honor of him turning three, I want to journal my top three favorite "Ev" things:
(Evan at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum - his 3rd Bday party)1. His snuggle-bugness. He will lay with me in his bed before nap, before bed, any ol' time and just hold me tight. He will put my face into his little dimples-where-knuckles-will-grow hands and hold me while staring into my eyes or kissing my face. He will scratch my back and say: "Mommy I tickle you back? You like that Mommy?"
(Evan & I at his train birthday party)2. His big, big smile that includes the most endearing (identical to his Dad's) dimples I have ever had the pleasure of seeing light up!
(Evan's last picture as a two-year-old)3. His lil' NJ accent....he cracks us up with the way he talks - so Jersey via Alabama. Chris and I often joke that Evan should be on the reality show "Jersey Shore".
18 days later our big guy, Brady, turned six years old. He is such a big boy - and sooo big for his age. At his 6 year well check up, Dr. Anderson said he is the size of a healthy 7 1/2-year-old....needless to say he is off of the charts. I wonder how old he will be when he passes me!
