We didn't have a backyard, so the city parks were like our backyard.

Then Mick turned 1.

We moved to a new house in Noda with a backyard.

That same week, Mick learned to walk too!

His dad built a backyard swing that Mick and his brother loved to use.

Mick got his first professional haircut.

Who is this handsome young lad? He looks familiar, but I don't recognize him. @fayecheadle you have a $5 credit at Snip-it's now because I said Henry referred us.


Mick and his brother had fun playing together and scheming.

Love those faces.

Mick visited his brother Killian at Montessori school with his Grandma Maggie, friend JJ, and Ms. Megan.

Killian had 5(!) visitors at lunch today. I think Mick and JJ enjoyed visiting their future school.

Then Mick turned 4.

Mick had a fun birthday party at home and his Papou put on a magic show.

Mick visited Highland Mill Montessori with his brother for Beginner's Day. His older brother Killian help guide Mick to his classroom.

His brother showed him items in the classroom, and he also met Ms. Holly that day. He was so happy that there were animals in the classroom and Ms. Holly let him feed Cupcake. Mick loved the classroom so much, he didn't want to leave! He was excited to start Montessori school in the fall.

Over the summer, Mick went to art camp with his brother for the first time, and also learned how to swim. It was a fun summer with another beach trip to Myrtle Beach.

Then Mick turned 5.

Mick discovered this year he LOVES pizza.



Mick continued to grow his climbing skills.



When Mick was 5, our family adopted a cat, name Mr. Kitty. Mick takes such good care of Mr. Kitty.



Mick attended his first overnight camp at a farm.




Then Mick turned 6.

Mick turned 6 back in March, but I was too sick to come to his class then.

So far, as a 6 year old, Mick has had an awesome trip to Tennessee with his grandparents...where he did a lot of climbing...






and Mick joined a swim team for the first time.


Happy 6th Birthday, Mick!
