Four-ever Miles

Today is my baby boy's birthday.  He's four years old and super cute and fun to be with.  Yesterday he gave me a hug and said, "Mommy, I'm going to keep you.  I'm going to keep you forever." 

Miles loves eating and playing games and then eating and then playing some more games.  He also likes bowties, grown ups who give him candy, and knock-knock jokes.  Here's his favorite:

Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Watermelon.
Watermelon who?
SMELLMOP! 

He's very enthusiastic about little things.  Pretty much everything he does or sees is dubbed "SUPER. AWESOME."

Miles is very particular.  I dare you to offer him anything but cereal from a purple box for breakfast.  Good luck trying to get him to sleep without making him cozy first.  ("Tan you mate me tozy?")  Hey, remember that time Jeff rolled up Miles' window for him and Miles cried for the next half hour because he wanted to roll up his window himself?  Adorable.

Secretly this is the face he insists on making in pictures.  I have to take at least one of these and show it to him before he'll let me take regular photos.  He's kind of weird.  I'm going to keep him forever.

Happy Birthday, Miles!

Does he write his own knock knock jokes? He better not quit his day job!

The photos are so beautiful! He's only four and he already knows exactly what he wants. He'll take over the world for sure. (Also, Miles looks so much like you! How cool to have a four year-old boy version of yourself.)
