Its always hectic this time a year and I often times feel bad that Taite has to celebrate his birthday a week before Christmas. I truly have debated throwing him half birthdays so that he can have a fun summer birthday party like his brother Caleb. We celebrate Travis’ birthday in December as well (the 9th). So between those two birthdays and Christmas, its always busy this time a year.
Taite at 8 is full of humor and hugs. Although he is getting older this cutie loves loving from his mom and even dad. He has always been so affectionate and I love that about him.
For Taite’s birthday we kept it simple. Travis’ oldest sister Tracy was in town, her 3 girls and his dad. So we celebrated with them. Had cake/ice cream, a meal of Taite’s choice (which happened to be spaghetti). We also took Taite roller skating.
Taite at 8 is in 2nd grade.
Has done great with school this year. Learning to read better, entering the realm of harder math :) – and is always fascinated with a fun science experiment. He still is so athletic. Loves to climb, dig in the creek and is almost always with his brother Owen. Those two are like two peas in a pod. So cute.
Below are a few photos from his day.
His little brother Reed watched on the side lines.
The little camo fleece Reed has on reminded me so much of Taite many years ago wearing the same jacket.
Here’s a flash back.
Him and Reed look so much alike!

We found some skates to fit Reed too- he insisted he could do it on his own though, which resulted in a melt down later.
Sure was cute while it lasted.
Loved seeing him so excited over his little minecraft man he got.
Happy Birthday again Taite. We love you!
