Titan's 3

For those of you who have never had the pleasure of being around Titan, you're missing out!
He is an absolute delight. He is three going on ten. Nothing will stop this boy from joining in with everything his big siblings are doing. This past year has only magnified that as he's become bigger and conquered more things. As we go through our day, I have to remind myself that he is only three. I often times expect the same from him as my older three and he rarely disappoints.

Titan is SO hilarious. He regularly takes words and makes them his own, usually by adding "o" to the end of things. He has incredible manors, I almost never have to remind him to say please or thank you and is the king of "you're welcome Mom!" 
Titan still wins over anyone he encounters with his sweet, smiling, little Danny self. He is bold and brave as long as Dan or I are around but still gets weary when not by our side. He is happiest in the middle of our crazy family!
Titan has been found lately stealing his siblings two wheeled scooter and LOVES when we put the training wheels on Rex' bike and he bikes around. He also delights in saying that it's "his bike" just to get a reaction out of his big brother.
Friends regularly say, "I forget that he is almost/just three." He has a way of just fitting in with the older kids.
He is willing to play just about anything with his siblings. He's tremendous at Barbies and Ninja Turtles.
Titan continues to embrace the roll of big brother. He calls Jett, "diaper boy" or just "diaper" when he's frustrated with him. "MOM, diaper boy is on me!" He makes us laugh all the time!
He raids Quinn and Rex' closet almost every day except for Sunday mornings when I pick out their clothes. He wears their basketball shorts and shirts all the time.
I am blown away at how this little man has changed our lives over the last three years.
We could not be more thankful to the Lord for our little Titan. I'm delighted to call this little boy mine. Happy 3rd Birthday! I love you Ty!

Addicted to Water Part II

There is nothing better than a hose on a hot summer day.
And getting to spray your brothers with the hose makes it even better.
Between the hose, filling our little pool, and the significant increase in baths once the summer hits, our water bill definitely goes up once its hot out. It's totally worth all the smiles though!
These children delight in being soaked from head to toe and Jett has followed in their footsteps. He gladly climbs into any bucket, jumps into any puddle and delights in running through the hose.
We have used our pool pass a ton this summer and every time I think they learn to do something new in the pool. Titan has mastered swimming with his face under water which has been very exciting for him! If we are at home we usually end up soaked in our clothes!
I love all these little smiles.
On this day Myla enjoyed holding all the power in her hands! There's nothing better than squirting your brothers with the hose!
All my sweet big boys!
We had to dump out all our sand in our sandbox (it was really, really smelly). We cleaned it and then made it into a little pool for the afternoon!
We are making the most of life outside. It is definitely our favorite thing to spend morning till night running around outdoors. So many more pictures to come. I can't get enough of their smiles!
