a surprise to me…marshall wanted me to take pictures of him while i was taking pics of my new wreath on the door. i snapped away while he made faces and put his hand up in front of the camera like his brother does. i was happy that i got some really great shots and looked forward to scrapping them in the future. but at dinner i got the idea of making a list of all the funny things about him lately and using the pics to go along.
my little marsh-man will be 4 in just over a month. feeling like the time hasn’t flown by. i think i’ve been present in watching him (and gibson) grow. every moment has been new and different and i’m thankful for each adventure. i never want to say that it wooshed by. i want to remember all the things they do…and here’s what marshall’s been like lately.
he’s been watching peppa pig, thomas: day of the diesel and pocoyo
he gives us the evil eye when he’s mad
he addresses us as “parents” instead of mommy and daddy
asks us to see the weather on our phones multiple times a day. he can read the temps too!
he’s convinced that he can’t eat grapes or strawberries until he’s “much older”
in the stores, he wants to be “a good boy walking” instead of getting in the cart.
every knock-knock joke results with him being who’s there.
starts all counting at zero. if i start at one, he gets frustrated and starts back at zero.
life is good.
the boys are amazing little dudes.
as we creep toward the end of another year, i am reminded of this and am thankful for 8 more years with Gibson and 14 more with Marshall in our home.
