I have A LOT to catch up on around here, but first things first, EMMETT IS TWO!!!!
On December 31, 2017, our sweet boy turned two years old and goodness gracious how quickly time has flown by. There was a time when the idea of being the mom of a two year old scared the pants off me, but I couldn’t feel luckier to be Emmett’s mama. He’s such a smart, sweet, intuitive, tender-hearted boy and I LOVE watching him learn and explore his world. Lucky for us, his very favorite things in the world- farm equipment- are readily accessible to us, so we were able to give him a pretty special birthday.
We’d originally planned to head into Portland to the train museum, both to celebrate his love for trains AND the fact that we got to turn his car seat around (PRAISE THE LORD!), but he was in the middle of a four day fever on his actual birthday, so we settled for some tractor rides, dinner at a local Mexican place and some cake and ice cream at home. A tractor cake, obviously.
I’m so proud of and amazed by this little guy and I feel incredibly lucky to get to spend my days with him. I can’t believe how quickly he’s growing up, and though it’s hard for my mama heart to handle sometimes, getting to know him is an absolute delight. I’m so looking forward to the next few months our little family has together before spring craziness begins so we can just focus on this little guy and settling in to our new home.
Happy Birthday Sweet Boy! You are so very loved!
