Yesterday, Phillip turned 6. It's hard to believe that he was once that sweet, squalling, tiny baby. He had a great birthday, and was thrilled to wear that 'birthday boy' pin for the day. The weather was gorgeous for the whole weekend, so we dined outside and generally had fun.
This little adventurer figured out how to climb the cherry tree on his own last week. He's extremely proud of himself. (And pretty cute, too.)

I'm so glad that my previous post struck a chord with some of you - I had several people approach me in person to tell me. Which I love! I sometimes wonder who's out there, especially since I haven't been posting frequently as of late. I still mean every word of that post - you are absolutely enough. I want you to believe it, too.

Happy Monday.


  1. Happy birthday Phillip! Hope he had a great day.

  2. Your boys are adorable and Wow, does your oldest boy ever look like you!!

  3. There is a glint in those eyes - both sets - that makes me think you're going to have some very busy times ahead...

  4. Happy he had a great day!
    I love how that first photo of the boys is right next to you on the blog! Fun!
