sweet little buster {day 364}

Today this sweet baby boy turns 4 years old. I am, I think, still in denial. How could this possibly be true?
I am grateful for Riley, for his crazy silly little self that makes me laugh until I cry, and for his sweet and tender spirit that loves to snuggle and “writes letters” to his friend Harlow and tells his auntie that he misses her and wants to sleep over.
Happy birthday, little buster (even though you’re not that little anymore)! Auntie Beana and Uncle Drew love you tons!!

LB {day 361}



I am so grateful today for this sweet birthday boy. We had tons of fun at Riley )aka LB or little buster)’s birthday party, and then he decided he wanted to have a sleepover with Mojo. We went for a long walk, played outside and ate our favorite meal…macaroni and cheese. But best of all, we got some great snuggles and lots of hugs and kisses. Blessed.

precious {day 328} (late)

I am so thankful for my sweet, snuggly Riley who has such a gentle and kind spirit. I couldn’t help but tear up when I read this. my mom has informed me that she transcribed this exactly word for word. “I want a wedding with you later.” Holy crap. cutest kid ever. He asks about Harlow often. I love that he remembers that she’s sick, cares to ask about her, and writes her the cutest love letters the world has ever seen.
