Yes, our sweet little Miles turned 2 on Friday! Happy Birthday Miles! We had a little shindig planned with a few friends, but then I up and caught a stomach bug on Wednesday, so we cancelled the party because I didn't think anyone would be thrilled to catch the stomach bug. So our little shindig turned into a tiny, little shindig, and we celebrated just the 6 of us---which I guess isn't exactly tiny.
Anyway, at least Miles, newly turned 2, probably didn't know the difference! We had our traditional birthday morning wake up pics. . .
and balloons--and the boys wanted Miles to have a special birthday breakfast, so Daddy ran with Miles and Charlie to pick out some yummy donuts! Miles practiced trying to show you how old he is. . .
And after breakfast, the older boys were off to school! They didn't want to go--they wanted to stay home and celebrate with Miles, but I assured them we would celebrate later! So, once they were gone, Miles and Mommy played outside--his very favorite thing to do! We played with chalk, and the Cozy Coupe, swung and picked up acorns--all perfect things to do on your birthday! And once the boys were back, including Daddy, we opened presents. . . (and Miles, your older brothers were so excited to pick out your presents for you--and you were so excited to receive them too)
and for the grand finale, we ordered pizza---a fave of Miles, who still calls it "tata" and sung Happy Birthday again, to our sweet Milesy Smilesy, with cupcakes!
Oh little Miles, just like I said here, you are amazing! You capture every bit of the meaning of your name, the reason we named you, Miles, which means, heart of compassion. You truly love others and you show it. I'm floored by how you show your baby brother love--kissing him and smiling at him all the time, begging us to go get baby Way when you think he is done napping (not always when he's done though). You are always concerned about him--where he is, if he's okay--just making sure he's taken care of. You adore your bigger brothers, and though they are often wrapped in their own little world, you are making your presence known! Thank you for showing all of us how to be appreciative with your "peas and tank you's" and for showing us all love by your unsolicited hugs and kisses--that melt my heart. You are a treasure, Miles! We thank the Lord continually for you. You are such a blessing and a true gift to us! We love you with all of our hearts!
Happy 2nd Birthday to you!!!!
