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.
Target’s new line of kids clothing Cat & Jack and Nanotex make shopping for clothes easier.
Nanotex is one of the companies that Target partnered with in their launch of Cat & Jack kids clothing line. Nanotex technology is incorporated in the Boys’ Reinforced Knee Flat Front Pant – Cat & Jack TM and the Boys’ Reinforced Knee Pleated Pant.
Nanotex® Durable Wear technology fits with the line’s Tough Cotton requirement to add wear resistance to cotton and cotton rich garments. The patented Nanotex® Durable Wear technology is modified at the molecular level to resist wear and prolong cotton and cotton rich life by offering abrasion resistance and strength protection durability.
I simply CANNOT BELIEVE Jude is going to be 7 soon and entering first grade. My little firstborn baby goo gah is growing too fast! All the cliches are true.
Absolutely love this Cat & Jack hooded jacket. Jude loves anything with a hood and pockets too, kindred spirits.
Nanotex clothing is available at more than 100 leading brands including Target, GAP, Gymboree, Land’s End, Kohl’s, JC Penney’s and more. Nanotex® uses nanotechnology to transform the molecular structure of fibers, creating fabrics with remarkable performance and comfort.
