  • There’s a necessary push going on in our culture right now to celebrate girls as multifaceted people- to highlight more than our appearance and foster confidence in a range of capabilities. I’m so thankful to be raising a little girl in this era, but I hope we don’t forget to put the same emphasis on the boys. There’s more than meets the eye there, too. .

Field turns seven today and if I could bottle up all that he is right now to save for adulthood, he would be one phenomenal man. He’s a messy, energetic, outdoorsy guy’s guy, but he’s also intelligent, creative, kind, keenly aware and highly sensitive. It would be just as difficult to see him lose those attributes that make him such a unique little boy as it would be to watch Louise lose her spunk.

After browsing the aisles looking for last minute birthday happies yesterday, I thought my heart was going to burst at what the shopping bags reminded me about who he is. His daddy had taken care of the outdoorsy gift options, and I feel sure his buddies will have Lego’s and Pokémon covered, so on my end there were only books. Lots of books. Mainly historical, but big into mythological creatures these days, too...oh, and a calendar, per his request. Someone’s got to stay organized around here😉 He’s 7 going on 75 and I can hardly handle it. .
.
Collecting surprises I knew he would love painted a picture of the curiosity and wonder with which he views the world. I hope that never gets lost amongst narrow minded messages of what it means to be a man. .
.
I always ache for the baby he used to be on June 7th, but I wouldn’t trade watching him come into his own for anything. He intrigues me to no end. I absolutely cannot wait to see what he does with every last one of those countless facets that make up my Field. Happy birthday, buddy. You’re one-of-a-kind!
