Taylor has been so excited for his birthday so we celebrated in style! Ashton made cupcakes the night before and they turned out great, as usual!
One of Taylor's favorite things is homemade waffles, so that's how we started the day.
Please LOVE the bedhead. I know I do. There are days when I come home from work and his hair still looks like this. Love it!
After breakfast we went to church then Taylor chose Burger King for lunch. I know, it's not glamorous, but it's his absolute favorite.
Joey and I had planned to take him bowling or to play laser tag, but I think he missed home just a little after being gone for a week because he passed on both ideas and opted to hang out at home.
After some relaxation, we loaded up and headed to Grimaldi's for birthday dinner with the family.
(He's making a 9 with his fingers, in case you missed it.)
Joey's mom and grandpa joined us, as well as my parents (but we have no photographic proof). Ashton was also there, but you know how she feels about the camera these days.
Taylor had so much fun opening all his presents! I mean, most kids enjoy this part, but I just love how genuinely surprised and thankful he was for each little thing. I can't get over the look on his face either. Such a sweet boy.
Ashton's cupcakes turned out super yummy. She wanted to make a cake so she could decorate it, but Taylor wanted cupcakes so she improvised. I think they turned out great!
Your daddy, Ashton and I love you so much! You are so funny, super sweet, and always so thankful. You gave me 2 kisses in the restaurant on Sunday night and I will cherish those forever. I don't know when they'll stop, so I'll keep them with me. You are such a loving little boy and still love to give hugs and snuggle. You tell me you always will and I pray that's true.
I'm so proud to be your mom.
On Sunday night you told Daddy that he didn't need to tuck you in because you weren't a baby anymore *sob*. I think his heart broke a little. I know mine did when he told me. But just remember, no matter how old you are, you'll always be my baby.
I love you more,
