Our Jace Face turned 5 on February 6! FIVE! A whole hand! Wow, has the time flown by. Looking back over the years, especially on this blog, makes me choke up. It’s almost suffocating to think about how fast children grow up. It’s beautiful but so sad at the same time. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been on my blog but this was a day I couldn’t miss documenting. This sweet boy of ours is getting so big. He’s still as stubborn and fiery and sensitive and loving as ever.
At the start of summer we decided to plan out a monster to-do list for our little family, filled with new and old things we like to do. But looking back a lot of time was spent at our little rental house here in the Cruz, playing on the patio, making pillow forts, having balloon parties, picking blackberries on our street and riding bikes in the neighborhood.
Dear Jace, I love your sensitive soul. Your love for attention and snuggles on the couch. I love that you did dishes on your own the other day and asked me to put on a song like Me. I love that you want to be a Daddy. Like your Daddy, and do magic tricks and go to the gym. I love that you love pillow forts. Probably because it means you get to snuggle right between us. Your passionate, stubborn heart is going to be a wild ride for us but one I would never trade. I love you.
Dear walker, I love your spirit. I love your happiness. I love your smirks, your obsession with food, your hi and bye waves and the cute way you drink water and always seem to choke on it. You’re the perfect mix of trouble and sweetness. Trouble enough to tackle Jace and sweet enough to kiss Callen on the head.
Jace requests to hold Callen multiple times in the day, which is so nice since it also requires he wash his hands! Callen loves it and often smiles and even starts to giggle when he sees Jace’s face. I think we have another one stage 5 clinger! Sweetest big bro ever.
