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

Savoring Summer {Staying in the Season}

The desk full of binders, calendars, sports schedules and dreamy ideas is where I currently find myself, while my mind continues to stray back to the mountains and clouds of our trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We have been home for a week and I decided in future, I must come home better mentally prepared for the onslaught of emails and to-do items that pile up when we go away for two whole weeks. The fact that school resumes one week from today only intensifies the pressure to get it all done right away. Usually at this point in August I am eager for cooler, less humid days hinting at the beauty of spicy Autumn flavors. Not this year. I am so invigorated by my return to normal movement following the long recovery from knee surgery that I don't want these summery days to end. At least not until they officially end on September 23, 2014. This year feels like a do-over, the last one so consumed by injury, pain and slow, slow, slow recovery. My mind is bursti

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
