My Big Boy

The very first thing that my Deeder does in the morning is ask to go outside, even if it’s 6:30AM and he hasn’t had breakfast. He asks by picking up his bucket and shovel and bringing them to me saying, “Go? Go?” he says it in such a sweet way that I’m only kept inside by Baby needing my care. We don’t get to go out until everyone is dressed and fed. He seems okay with that, as long as it really happens! I love watching him dig and am so glad that getting muddy and pretending to eat mud cakes makes him happy!

My big boy was born two years ago today; at 4:38AM, weighing in at 6lbs and 13 oz, and measuring 19 inches in length. I’m not sure how long he is this July 15th 4:38AM, but I can tell you that as of yesterday after lunch he weighed 26lbs and 8oz. I also can’t tell you how many inches long he measures, but I do imagine he’s exceeded his birth length!

Deeder’s first day

From the very first moment that I met Deeder I was hopelessly in love with him and over the past two years I’m even worse! Beyond all reason attatched to him! I adore every minute we have together, despite the minor frustrations here and there. He’s just a joy to watch–I wish that I could capture it all and hold every bit of him forever.
I know he’ll grow up one day, he will. For now though I get to watch that excitement for life that he hosts so beautifully.

Happy birthday, my big boy! Mommy, Daddy and Baby love you.
