Buddy turns 5

My kids birthdays always hit me hard – but i honestly can’t believe Buddy is 5. It’s somehow hard to come to grips with the fact that he is a for real big kid now. I think in my mind he was still like 2 or something. Yikes.

I’ve really missed having him home with me this year – full time school is such a big jump, and not just for the kids! Spending time together during the day reading books, playing legos and hanging out in cafes was precious to me, and i miss it like crazy. But on the plus side, I love seeing him thrive and make friends and watching who he is becoming.

Carrying on with the tradition i started with Bunny on her 5th birthday, we took some photobooth style face snaps (in his favourite tshirt and next to the advent calendar we took down way too late hehehe). I’m really loving this little tradition, it’s just so cool to capture their sillyness each year, and i feel like this set is such a perfect representation of my little Buddy.
