So this post has been a long time coming; Silas’ 4th birthday was in September 🙂 I took these images of him maybe a month and a half ago and wanted to share them with you!
Silas’ “on command” laugh looks pretty much like his real laugh 🙂 I’m grateful that he’s finally at the age where getting him to be happy in front of the camera isn’t so hard! This is really him right now!
I thought I’d bring along a few of his favorite things. I got these vintage suitcases a couple months ago off of craigslist. I love me a good deal!!
This has been Silas’ favorite book for a while now. It’s called “The Way Back Home” by Oliver Jeffers. It’s a super cute story about how a boy and a martian help each other out after both being stranded on the moon. Highly recommended by the Treu family 🙂
Other things pictured are a vintage looking airplane (what little boy doesn’t love airplanes?) and a wonky looking stuffed robot that I crocheted for him a couple of years ago. He sleeps with Zoobie every night 🙂
Branden made this sword for Silas for his birthday. (I know, I’m married to an amazing wood worker!) He tells Silas that he is his knight, a protector and peacemaker – good training for becoming the kind of man we pray he grows up to be!
Of course Batman wasn’t far behind that day. Had to get a picture of Ethan too. He seriously wears this mask everywhere.
Happy (way late!) birthday little man. We’re excited to see what this year will bring for you and our family!
