My Lawn Boys

One of my very favorite things about being a mom is watching the relationship between father and son. It is so incredible how much Mike looks up to his daddy already. From the foods he eats, the words he says, and the games he makes up, Adam's little buddy thinks the world of him. Since Mike could walk, he would watch Adam mow the lawn. This summer Adam bought a new fancy toy... his precious lawn mower . For Mike birthday he also got a new lawn mower, but his blows bubbles and Dad's doesn't. Although Mike has to run to catch up with Daddy sometimes, he still does it exactly how Adam does. When Adam stops, Mike stops. When Adam kicks a tire, Mike kicks a tire. When Adam fills up with gas, Mike fills up with bubbles. If Adam needs a drink water, Mike needs a drink of water. What is mom doing while this male bonding is going on.. sitting on the porch soaking it all up!

  4. Thanks! You are so right about having a daughter. We really wanted Mike to have a brother, but now that it is a sister, I love thinking about all the fun girly things I get to do with her.

  5. Awwww! I have GOT to have myself a boy! In the meantime I like living vicariously through you with yours! ANd OMG that second picture needs to be framed and hung up in your house. I even showed it to Jay and he was like "That is the cutest picture!"


Let's go make something,
