the rooster rug at the kitchen sink.
mint flavored snacks.
splashing through water. swamping in irrigation.

acting as head of security. warning of us the mailman, trash truck, landscapers & sprinklers.

our favorite things about him
how he’s instantly exhausted at bedtime. this is his way of letting us know that there’s absolutely no way he can leave the pillow in the bed that he’s curled up on.
how he lets out a big sigh and gives us major attitude when he’s not happy.
that sometimes, he’ll just sit and stare at mom and dad for a loooong time to let us know he loves us.
how patient and sweet he was to his annoying little sister. he (usually) let her win.
the way he protects us from semi trucks and motorcycles that get close to our car.
how much he loves going on walks. smells, smells, smells.
how excited he gets for walks and hikes.
his sweet face.
