A lot has changed over the last five years.
It's amazing how much they have grown and flourished in the blink of an eye.
Rex is still completely a daddy lover. Everything he does throughout the day he is thinking of how he can share it with his daddy. Every picture he colors, every cookie we make, every time we do something he cannot wait to give his daddy something, or tell him a story. He is a master artist, a dominating soccer player, an expert bug finder. Rex has the unique treasure finding ability. He can spot the smallest treasure hidden in the dirt on a walk. He my go to guy when I've dropped a small screw or part of a toy. He's got eyes like a hawk. Rex really enjoyed soccer this year. He had several goals. He has the best form in his baseball swing according to Dan, and the best basketball shot. He's still my early morning buddy. I love that time with him in the morning before everyone else is awake.
Myla is about as girly as you can get on the outside but can definitely hold her own in a wrestling match in this house! She is the Queen of hugs, as I mentioned before. She is also the Queen of thoughtfulness. She is always thinking of other people and things to give them, make for them. Myla knows just the right moment to give me a compliment or a word of encouragement. She and I love getting girl time to do our nails, go get coffee, play doll house. She is usually the first to stop and help Jett or Ty if they need something. She loves to help me in the kitchen. She is a big daddy's girl. She cannot wait to give her daddy huge hugs when he gets home and is always on his team in a wrestling match. She did AMAZING at soccer. She didn't score a goal but had the most upbeat attitude about it and was thrilled for Rex when he did. She surprised us with he aggressiveness throughout the season. She was so excited to get to be on a team. She is a perfect girl to have four brothers.
These two still make my heart scream with joy!
I have loved every minute of the last five years (and two months....). I cannot get enough of these two kids. Delighted to be their momma.
HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY REX & MYLA!!!
