Oh man, let me tell you about this boy right here. He is a GEM. He’s hilarious, he has SO MUCH ENERGY, has the absolute sweetest disposition, and is the world’s best snuggler.
Everyone who meets him falls instantly in love with him. For real.
He is obsessed with all things cars. Hot Wheels, the movie CARS, monster trucks, you name it. He almost always has a car in his hands at all times. And he is ALWAYS down for a race.
He loves sports. Baseball, basketball, football. He hasn’t really met a sport he doesn’t like.
Yes, Baby Cece is still around and he does still love her. She’s just definitely not his “primary” love anymore haha. 🙂
He loves wrestling with daddy, snuggling with mommy, playing with Lilly, petting the doggies, and drinking milk. He still is basically the world’s pickiest eater and eats basically two foods: peanut butter and jelly and quesadillas. 🤦🏻♀️ Whatevs. He’s FINE. Oh, and he only eats the icing off his cupcakes.
In the past year, he learned how to ride a bike without training wheels in like, 12 seconds, he took his first swimming lessons, played t-ball, and decided he wants to be Spider-Man when he grows up.
Amos James, you have my heart and soul forever. I quite literally thank God every single day that I get the privilege of being your mama. I love you so so big. Happy birthday, little buddy.
As always, every year I ask both Lilly and Amos some questions on their birthday… it’s one of my favorite things to do to see which answers stay the same year to year and which ones change.
