It’s birthday time again!

Say it isn’t so, it is already birthday time again.
One of my girlfriends asked me the other day if I was going to be sending Grayson to preschool in the fall,
It caught me off guard that it was already time to think about preschool!
So here we are, with our birthday wish-list.

It feels a little harder to put together a list for him this time,
he likes soo many different things these days. One day he is obsessed with cars, the next day is something different.
Right now he is super into doing puzzles, any and all kinds. (age appropriate of course)
Also, one of the first things that comes to mind for Grayson is PLAY-DOH. He loves it.
He watches YouTube videos (and will as long as let him) with play-doh all.the.time.
So I will definitely start his list off with that, this, or this Cars set might be a favorite.
But I think he would love something like this Meal Makin Kitchen, he does have a new love for Spiderman.
Ever since I had Grayson, I’ve been excited for him to be old enough to “pretend”
I think he is just about there, he makes me “cookies” and he makes me pretend to eat them..
I saw this Play Doctor Set last year and have saved it for this birthday, I think it’s PERFECT start pretending with!
I also found this awesome book, it is a little expensive but its custom to his name, and I love the illustrations
and way they write it so I think it’s worth it.
Also, I have building his collection of awesome t-shirts made by small shops,
next on my list is the Jesus Saves Bro t-shirt. (he’ll probably need a size 4, grey or black)
Something else he talks nonstop about is “Hulk” and mashing everything in site.
Hulk + Play Doh = can’t go wrong.
I have also wanted to get him on a bike, I know the newest thing is these balance bikes..
So I asked some friends and found one that I think is perfect.
Lastly, his other obsession is Paw Patrol. Anything and everything..three years old

My life :: San Diego zoo

We had a dermatology appointment in San Diego a few weeks ago,
I thought it would be nice to end our day at the zoo after another lame appointment.
I told him we were going in the morning and it’s all he could talk about until we got there.
He doesn’t just love the animals, but the chance to run free.
And I love how tired he is at night..

It’s a good thing he knew where he was going, because I sure didn’t.
It was so hot, I probably would have left earlier than we did…
but I didn’t know where the exit was!
FV8A6049Most of my pictures are this… him staring into a cage or aquarium. FV8A6051Yes, same shirt as our other post.
I figured a public place like the zoo is as good of a place as any to witness to people.
I heard lots of comments about it too. Mission accomplished.FV8A6052His happy face.FV8A6056I love dates with my boy.

My life :: our local horse stables

FV8A5701I seriously love ^^ this picture of him.
He is such a confident little boy,
there isn’t much that intimidates him, and I love that.
Fearless this one.. and so animated.
These pictures definitely capture that side of him,
this day he was such a good boy; playing on his own.
I had to reward him by taking him to his happy place..
the horse stables in Canyon Lake.
It has both horses and a tractor, heaven for this kid.
FV8A5746I adore his shirt, I found them because of a suggestion on Instagram.
Vicarious Clothing, you can find their shop here . (I also got their “this many” tee)
Anyway, back to the horse whisperer.
Every.Single.Horse loves him. They come right up and let them pet (or kiss) them.
It really is true what they say, that horses can sense good.FV8A5750 FV8A5753His latest.. pretending to be an airplane flying.FV8A5759Again, love this.. my little tractor driver.
His obsessions include tractors (obvs.), animals and colors.
He randomly kisses us all day, every day..
I like to think he picked that one up from his momma.
If he hurts me accidentally (let’s be honest, or on purpose)
he always kisses the spot he hurt.FV8A5771 FV8A5772He talks so much now, and loves to repeat everything we say.
He still loves to dance.
He still hates to share.FV8A5773 FV8A5777I hope this year we have a decent winter.
I can’t wait to take him to “build a snowman”
Frozen is a favorite to watch around these parts.FV8A5800I realize that I used the word love a lot in the post.
I can’t help it, I’m in love.
With my boy, and our family.FV8A5812
