Four Years Ago

… yesterday, My Littlest buddy turned 4!

This is so hard to believe, because while Myles always kind of seems as old as Qade all the time, I still have it in my head that he’s my little guy. 😉 I tried to convince him yesterday that it was his birthday and he was now 4 years old. Since he’s been wanting to be four since he turned 3 this should have been good news. However, he was skeptical since we weren’t having his party yet. Ha ha!

Myles is still our happy go lucky, but he also has a “grumpy” side and won’t hesitate to tell us or his brother “I GRUMPY!!” with an accompanying “UUHHG!” sound to drive the message home. 😉 He and I had a discussion last afternoon about how he is sometimes grumpy. He was rather matter of fact about it. “Sometimes en I wake up, I just grumpy.” 😉 But most of the time he is happy.

He’s our resident button pusher too. While they all know how to push buttons, Myles has made an art of it. He is gleefully happy whenever he has found said button, and will mash it over and over until there’s an eruption or an intervention. We are working on both sides of this issue.

Myles is a thinker as well. He has a good memory and an amazing vocabulary. He asks questions like “Why our eyes blink?” and other such things that I have no idea how to answer. He has a great memory, and enjoys trying to beat out his brother on Bible verse memory. I’m pretty sure that competition between these two is going to be a life long thing. Still they are the best of friends, except when they aren’t. 😉

Myles is our action guy. He’s already had enough scraps and falls to last a life time, but they haven’t yet dampened his sense of adventure. He’ll be a monkey for a good long time, I’m sure. Perhaps rock climbing is in his future. 🙂 He’s been talking about all the fun rides we went on at Disney, and how he liked “Splashing Mountain” and even though “I was a little bit scared, but I was brave!” he wants to go on it again the NEXT time we go to Disney.

We are so blessed to have this little guy in our family! Even on the days (and there are some) when everything from getting dressed to eating our food is a struggle, he’s still so worth it! I enjoy our mommy and me times with Myles. He revels in learning new things and accomplishing things on his own. These four years have been a blur, I can hardly remember Myles as a baby! But I totally can’t remember what it was like before our cannon ball launched into our lives! 🙂

Love you, Myles!! Happy Birthday!
