Sweetness Overload

Age three is hard.
It is sweet and sour....
Oh buddy, is it ever!
The sour is SOUR but the sweet is OH. SO. SWEET.
Lately Miles has been killing it with sweetness, cuteness, funny phrases, and style.

I love taking random pictures of him doing random things.
This post is FULL of what I think is "sweetness."
This post is for me to remember these moments when my heart fluttered with so much joy!
This post is all of just Miles and it's a ton!
You have been warned.

 Miles likes to take down all the pillows after I freshly make the bed....
make a pile...
and jump!
(the party hat is my favorite)

Miles is OBSESSED with his "little green froggie"
I swear it has 9 lives.
We loose it all the time but it somehow manages to find its way back into his life.
I love his sweet face waiting at the bottom of the slide while the frog slides down.

Miles rocks his "spy goggles" around the house.
It makes my heart happy.

We got a new mirror and Miles was totally playing with his reflection.

I seriously cannot stop laughing how great this picture is.
He really does love those goggles and his "shark with letters in it" hat.
Most mornings he puts it on first thing.
It's adorable.

Miles has almost mastered getting dressed all by himself.
This particular day he wanted to wear his shorts on top of his jammies.
It was pulling teeth to get him to NOT wear this outfit to the store.
He's a funny one.

He loves his dog.
He still calls him "Mamis"
He's been going out back and sitting with him a lot lately.
I love it!

This boy wants to help with everything!
"Im a good helper" and
"I can do it all by myself" are the two main things I hear.
He has so many bruises on his shins from running full speed, tripping over something, while yelling
"I wanna do it" when I say I'm gonna feed the dog, wash the windows etc....

He picks me flowers and wears backpacks in public....
do I need to explain the sweetness?
( I mean come on....look at his shoes on the wrong feet)

I think it is so sweet when he sits criss cross apple sauce!
His little body is so cute.
He loves working on his puzzles.
I love watching his wheels turn.

I adore his voice!
I love that he loves books.
He was reading his book while I was paying bills the other day.
I had to stop so I could listen to him.
So sweet, I tell ya.

 I know I will miss this phase in my life because I already miss yesterday hearing him squeal with delight while swimming with his daddy.

Most days are spent in the Water

Summer is here!
The sun doesn't mess around in Southern California this season.
Most days are spent in the pool around here.
Sometimes it's just us but most days we have company.
 We love having a pool and love that we can share it with our friends and family.

Miles loves wearing what he calls "Spy goggles"

He loves counting 1-2-3 and jumping off the hot tube into the pool

He is slightly freaked out with the pool vacuum....
Not sure why.
But he freaks!
He calls it the "wagon"
We have tried everything to get him to be cool with that darn "wagon" 
Aye Aye Aye.

Fingers crossed he wont be 16 still freaking out about it...

We sure love living close to our cousins.

Porter and Miles call the kick boards
"skate boards" and like to jump in the
"little pool" with them.

One day we locked up our pool gate and went out towards Palm Springs to a fun water park with an old college roommate.
We had a blast!
The kids stayed busy thee entire time.

I personally loved the kiddy area.
Yes, we had to watch our kids but it was so nice that the water was only knee deep and they could "swim" without their floaties and be free for a day.
After a fun day at the water park we went back to my friends condo where the kids got right back into the pool.
The kids stood in line to be thrown in the water.
(there is miles flying in the air)
Every time Miles would pop back up we weren't sure if he liked it or was scared but he kept going back for more....
Go for it kid!

We have been enjoying our hot summer filled with pools, sunscreen and watermelon!
