Happy 2nd Birthday Ozzybear!

A special thank you to Kasmira Kit for taking these fabulous family photos for us. http://www.kasmirakit.com/photography

I can’t believe my “last baby” (I have my tubes tied) is turning TWO. Time can be such an asshole! He has been going through a lot, mainly struggling to find his words. He’s started Speech Therapy and will soon begin Occupational Therapy and an evaluation with a Psychologist – just like his big brother Jude once did. We are so proud of our little buddy and I can’t wait to see how well he does with this help in 2017.

Each of my children teach me something new about myself each day that passes. A different lesson. A different trial of my patience and time management. Ozzy brings sunshine into our lives as bright as his hair. He loves to make us laugh. He loves to play pranks on me, play peek-a-boo and chase. He is obsessed with Trotro, Mickey Mouse, Dinosaurs, Cars, bubbles, playing outside and most importantly chasing the Bigs.

When Jude & Ruby are away at school, he often walks around the house yelling (just like Mama) “JUUUU!” and “RUUUUU!” hoping they are simply playing a prolonged game of hide and seek with him. When it’s time to go pick them up he claps his hands with excitement and sometimes jumps.

Last Baby is my first baby to really care about his pacifier and have comfort blankies. People say he looks just like Michael but when he’s making smug little sassy faces, I think he looks just like me.

My favorite pastime is forcing him to sit on my lap and torturing him with kisses and hugs. He pretends he hates it then as soon as I stop he asks for more. He’s just funny like that.  He is so brave – possibly too much so. He climbs the highest slide at the park just like all the big kids with a devilish grin of determination. He thinks it’s SO funny to open and close my bedroom door, poking his sweet little face in and out of the door frame. I could go on forever with all the ways this baby bring me joy. His smile makes my heart skip a beat.

We hadn’t really had a professional family photo shoot of the five of us since Ozzybear was born, so I was super thankful for these gorgeous images from Kasmira Kit. Below are some of our favorites.
