Happy birthday Hood #4…

June 19th, 2012 · 18 Comments

We are in the midst of Birthday Season one here… and so Happy Birthday to Hood #4, who somehow turned nine over night…


I would guess this guy is most famous for his many, many disguises…

And you can see why. Bugsy Malone is a way of life…

But he does break out and become… mr potato head sometimes…


A professing pirate…

A renowned traveller…


He is a fabulous friend…


Through thick and thin…


Even swimming in mid-winter, because his brother wants to…


Drumming is his thing…


So is anything sporty…

Rock-surfing.. no problem…

He is a wild artist…

He is our champion player… and brings new meaning to “play.” He plays and plays and plays… he will in fact forgo food for playing…


He is our champion feather finder… he finds them everywhere…


And nature collector…

And at finding small spaces he is tops!!!


He can be really serious…

He loves cooking… but who doesn’t around here!!!


The ultimate Mr. Incognito…


The cutest hair on earth…


A wandering soul…


The fiercest tiger…


My champion brown eyed boy…


He has always been great at hiding away…


And really really funny!!!

He has always been a champion sleeper and I am so grateful to have had one!!!

Hay sweet boy, I hope nine is just packed with heaps of adventures… many more disguises and masses of adventures!!!
