It’s hard to believe that my favorite middle child became a big, bad 4 year old this week. Just ask him, he’ll tell you all about his new found maturity. It’s crazy to think only 4 years ago he looked so tiny and cute!
I’ve acquired great knowledge of little boys since his birth. First and foremost they are dirty. I have never witnessed anything that has the ability to get dirty as fast as Taylor.
A smile can be used for many things, like covering up a guilty conscience. Do something wrong? Bat those big eye lashes and shoot a grin at mom. Gets me every time.
He’s also a genuinely loving little fella. I’ve never watched him pass up a hug from anyone or anything!
Taylor also has a special place for our milk calves. He loves taking care of them and giving extra scratches and hugs.
Every once in a while we make him look presentable, clean and polished. Like school pictures. He looks so grown up!
For his special birthday snack at school he requested cow cupcakes. This was a stretch for someone with my baking skill set, or lack there of. BUT we got creative! Using white and chocolate box cake mixes I made marble cupcakes for the base.
After a good coating of cream cheese frosting we were ready to decorate. A mini Oreo for the nose, white gel frosting completed the look with “nostrils”. We then finished them off with black licorice ears, chocolate chip eyes and brown Reese pieces horns.
It’s crazy how fast time flies! May be we should party with cow cupcakes all the time!
