The family was gathered for Wyatt’s great grandpa’s birthday. His grandparents, extended family, and parents of course were all gathered for a simple celebration with hot dogs and cheesecake. They were soaking in the last warmth of the Alabama summer, which sadly doesn’t end until October. While that gathering was the main focus up at the house, family slowly but surely made their way down the long back yard to the pavilion by the lake to enjoy watching Wyatt be the star of the show. They had fun giggling as the dogs went after the smash cake, and oogling over how cute Wyatt is, how how much he had grown over the last year, and how much fun it would be when his little brother arrived in just a week or so!
There’s no one Wyatt looks at with more love in his big blue eyes than his mom, and no one makes him giggle harder than his dad (except maybe Penny the dog). Those beautiful brown curls and big blue eyes are going to have the girls going crazy in his teenage years! We had so much fun sneaking in a couple family photos before his smash cake portrait session to document their time as a family of three coming to a close when baby Weston arrives soon.
Wyatt, you are one blessed little boy! Not only do you have parents who would fly to the moon for you, but you have a whole clan of family standing right beside them who would help them get there. Don’t take them for granted, sweet boy. Spend time with them, learn from them, let them love on you and serve them with a joyful heart as you grow. They can’t wait to see what God has in store for you and neither can I!
