Leave a Comment
Monkey Moo. You are 9 today! I feel like you are no longer my baby, and its wonderful to see you growing into a lovely handsome young man.

You still very much love hugs and quiet time

and of course pulling silly faces

you have a very strong will and so much determination.

You really enjoy getting your hair cut once you get a "man bun" aka can tie your hair up on your head with my hair ties

Donuts are a favourite food

We now have a pretty impressive rock collection

I love that we can sit with you and colour in for hours

You still love the water and wearing t shirt and shorts all year round is your clothing of choice

I love this photo!

and we appreciate all your inquisitive questions about life and your concern for others.

I couldn't image our family with out our wee tropical storm

you love to travel and of course teddy still comes too!

We are so impressed with your football skills, you have not given up when it got tough and its great for you to see results when you give it 100%

You are still Master B's baby brother but you are nearly as tall as him and have bigger feet than him.

Monkey Moo we love you to the moon and back in Jokers low rider!

Its been a whole year....
I miss chatting to you on the phone, you asking how the boys are, what we've been up to. Encouraging me that we are doing a good job with the boys. You had so much kindness and love for others..... Miss you xx

Happy 10th Birthday!

Master B you are 10 today!

You are now a decade old

You still have a very determined spirit

but also very easy going and not too worried about much

You would much rather spend your time in the library than on the football field.

I admire your perseverance 

and how the simple things like paper planes bring you such joy

I'm still having to sneak in hugs where I can

Family time is very important to you

but also having time along is good for you to recharge

You and Master B are like two peas in a pod

and so much like Mr B at the same time

I am so proud of you this past year, school is thankfully getting easier.

Our family photos are still awesome

and I'm very glad we take as many photos as we can

so I can remember every moment and every silly face.

Amongst the rush and the chaos you have taught me so much patience and love

You are my monkey moo and we wish you a very Happy Birthday!!!!

and we love you to the moon and back in a blue x-wing 

You can see the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th birthday posts here.
