Things I Love About January: Exhibit C.


This boy. Today he is nine. Nine. NINE! And this is exactly how I find him every single morning when I crawl out of bed. Rumpled white undershirt, cozy spot on the couch in front of the fire, book in hand. Reading is his passion and I'm sure he has far surpassed the number of books I have read in my life. Maybe twice over. Ryan and I were talking the other night about what a joy Easton is in our lives. He loves to help people, he is level headed, he is fun, and one thing I have noticed lately: He loves to make others feel good about themselves. Frankly, every mother should have an Easton. He makes me completely utterly happy and thankful. I'm sure I don't deserve him, but I'm so very grateful he's mine.

Happy Birthday dear boy!

  7. Has he read the Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins? It's about an 11 year old boy who travels with his baby sister to an underground kingdom beneath the streets of NYC. I loved them! He might, too. :)

  21. First of all he is sooo cute. I have to tell you that I have enjoyed seeing him at piano practice. He is a very kind and polite boy. It also helps Dylan to see someones as cool as Easton playing the piano too! Happy Birthday Easton.
