KC at Three {PHFR}


He is our third son, our last child (unfortunately), our small family's biggest blessing.  KC will turn four in May.  Today I felt like capturing his three-ness in this week's PHFR.  In the above photo, I caught him doing what he does best ~ playing by himself.  As we move throughout our days at home, side by side, I in the kitchen, he in the living room, I will often overhear him making up stories for his beloved trains and cars, carrying on hilarious conversations between Batman and Spiderman, or battling his Ninjagos with full battle sound effects.  His brothers taught him so well.


Just last week my husband's friend said he has never seen KC when he didn't have a smile on his face.  While that isn't always the case, 99.9% of the time he is really happy.  He has brought so much laughter into our lives with his funny vocabulary ~ Motas for Thomas, Beecy for Percy, Mac'n for macaroni and cheese, bassik for basketball.  He is also great with  making up numbers like fivety-thirty and eleventy sixty.  We will miss his lispy "yes" someday but for now he makes all around him enjoy life just because he is little.  RW nicknamed him "Cutesy" and whenever he calls KC cutesy he replies adamantly, "I am NOT cutesy!"  to which we all dissolve into giggles.


Yesterday while getting his haircut, I noticed his Crocs were two different colors.  He did this on purpose.    Choose your battles, right?  This morning for breakfast, I found him standing on a stool putting a frozen chicken patty into the microwave and trying to decide which button to push to get it started.  He already had the ketchup out on the table!  Now if I can only teach him how to make coffee...

KC was a very chubby breastfed baby who would probably still be nursing today if I hadn't cut him off when he was nearing 2 1/2!

His favorite animal is a shark and his Uncle's lemon shark (named Sharky by KC) both thrills him and terrifies him when we visit their house.

KC is our best sleeper ~ in the van, on the sofa, in front of the computer, even at the dinner table, when he is tired he needs.  his.  sleep.  right.  now.

KC loves when we take self-portraits on my phone but he insists they all be in black and white.
  This one's for you KC, with all our love.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued.
