We have the honor of celebrating another very important birthday!
Our little Monkey turns 2!
He has been really excited about his fast approaching birthday. Every now and then I hear him singing parts of Happy Birthday to himself in his sweet little voice. He is fully aware of what a birthday involves having just celebrated his big sister’s birthday a little over a week ago and he’s more than ready to have one of his own.
When asked what he wanted for his birthday dinner he declared “Cake!”.
I wouldn’t be honest if I said this past year was a breeze. It was full of challenges for all of us, and my little Monkey stretched my patience almost to the point of snapping but what I’ve come to learn about my little guy is this…
He is sweet! So very, very sweet!
And when he looks up at me, with his gorgeous little smile I melt. Even if he just accidently (or purposely) knocked me in the head with a light saber, when he turns and smiles and says “Th-orry mummy”, I’m as good as ice cream on a hot summer day.
He is strong, and stubborn and when he doesn’t want to do something he will fight to get his own way. He would rather have a time out then to give in! As he grows up, I pray he holds on to his convictions with the same strength! I’m confident he will.
My sweet, baby boy loves to sing and read and play with his brother and sister and he loves his new puppy Jack. He has carved himself out a spot in our family where he fits perfectly!
He absolutely adores his father…
and mummy’s not so bad either.
Especially when she kisses his little feet. He loves to have his feet kissed and Mummy is more than willing to comply!
The little Monkey enjoys being tickled, but only to an extent, then it just makes him grumpy. He loves to eat, especially his snacks!
He is very smart! He is always on the look out for shapes, especially for octagons and hexagons and he likes to call out their colours.
He enjoys camping, face painting and anything that involves going outside – and more than all those things…
he loves his Eeyore-y.
I love my little Monkey dearly! I love him more every day. He has taught me a lot in his short little life and he’s made all our lives a lot more interesting. He completes our family with his funny and quirky, little personality. I look forward to gaining insights to my little puzzle of a boy as his vocabulary grows over then next little while!
Most of all, I’m just so thankful to be his mummy! I’m so thankful to have his cuddles and to receive his smiles! I’m so thankful to be able to share dinosaur hugs day after day! I’m so in love with my little guy and I’m thankful to have a lifetime with him in it!
Happy Birthday my sweet, sweet boy!
