I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.
It seems barely possible it's a whole year since that crazy colour party. More to the point, it's harder to believe it's a whole year since a certain little guy turned three!
In keeping with tradition, I've put together a video of some of our favourite shots of our wee guy to celebrate the year that's been.
This is your life Mylo age 3-4 from mnms on Vimeo
At four, Mylo is super interested in numbers, quite happily adding 1 onto any number up to 20 and telling us the equation. He knows all his letters and is writing his name and a few other letters quite well. He loves doing activity books and playing games like Sleeping Queens and Uno and gives us all a run for our money too!
At football, he's playing with a lot of older kids now which is giving him a great challenge. He's learning that he needs to chase after the ball once he's kicked it and tackle other players too. He's a dab hand on the Wii U console especially on Nintendoland, Mario Kart and also Fifa 13.
His favourite colour is black 'because this is the colour of Barcelona football team and Ninjago', and his favourite number is 10 'cos I just like it'. He loves coming up behind us when we are kneeling down in the kitchen getting things out of the fridge and giving us big hugs which nearly send us toppling over.
At night, he has a cute goodnight tradition. As you leave the room, he calls out 'night night love you' to which you have to reply 'night night love you'. That's promptly followed by 'love you night night' to which you have to reply 'love you night night'. Only then will he settle down for the night.
He tells me his favourite animal is a crocodile 'because they're bigger than alligators' and his favourite movie is Despicable Me 2.

Wow....an ice-cream bigger than me
We love how much spark and character this little guy brings to our lives. People often say that they can't help smiling when they look at him, as he has the most delightful cheeky face which I hope he never grows out of. I find myself lost in his gorgeous brown eyes and long dark eyelashes on a daily basis.
I'll never forget waking up to 'wipe my bottom please' and coming into the bathroom at 5.30am
to find this sight!

We are so blessed to be your Mum and Dad little M and may God richly bless you in this new year of life.
