Happy birthday to our sweet Monkey Moo! Somehow you are 8 years old – did we enter a time warp when you were born?? Thank you Luca for bringing such joy into our lives. You are sensitive, caring, thoughtful, analytical, hilarious, creative, joyful, pensive, and exuberant! You love the earth and all it’s creatures, especially a certain black and white flightless bird in the antarctic, riding your bike through everyone’s yards in the neighborhood, details and facts about anything and everything, harry potter, the flash, spring rolls, pokemon cards, reading books, yelling loudly, playing your violin, getting lost in your imagination for hours, listening to all different kinds of music but especially classical and rock and roll, watching your baby cousin grow, and above all you love your family. We are so lucky to have you!
It was a much anticipated affair, three years in the making. After countless hours of watching her brother’s and sister’s classes, imitating every move they made, and asking repeatedly if she could have a turn, we woke up this morning with great excitement as we prepared to take Mia to her first gymnastics class!
Luckily her class is at the same time as Autumn’s, so big sister got to help out with lining up at the top of the stairs and getting through the group warmup.
She looked for me periodically throughout her class and flashed her biggest grin with all her teeth and two big dimples, gave me a thumbs up and blew lots of kisses.
Great job today, chickadee, we are so proud of you!
Happy birthday to our sweet little chickadee who turned 3 today! You are our firecracker, comedian, tornado, singer, dancer, actor, daredevil, doctor, and snuggly love bug. You shine brighter than the sun, you laugh about as close as one can get to a Dr. Evil laugh while still being completely adorable, you rush to give us anaconda squeezes as soon as we arrive home and walk in the door, and you poke your head around our shoulders to stare deeply into our eyes with pure love and wonder. You are exhausting while at the same time being a source of pure joy and delight, and all too often we have to turn our heads to hide a smile or a laugh when you should be getting a time out. Thank you for bringing so much color, and spark, and sweet, sweet love into our family. We love you to the end of the rainbow!
Today our little dragon turned 5! Autumn, you constantly amaze us with your beautiful brain and the depths of your thoughts and ideas. You come up with the most insightful explanations about the world around you and it is a delight to witness the inner workings of your mind. Our favorite example of late is your reasoning for the word “eclipse:” because it starts with an “e” and the moon clips onto the sun! Brilliant! At the same time we love how your brain can relax and let your creative energy flow into your amazing artwork. Whether you are painting with watercolors or drawing with crayons, your artwork seems to flow effortlessly from your fingers onto the canvas. Your endless drawings of our family are more precious than gold. We love that you love the planets and space, reading books, cooking, riding your bike, and radiohead. And it is so magical how you turn into a fish when you jump into water. Love you more than the multiverse, little dragon!
