Silas is the youngest son of our best friends, Lauren and Grant Mickle. Recently Silas celebrated his first birthday and we were excited to capture some fun, sweet moments with him and his older brother, Jack Henry.
Silas Mickle, although young, has started a list of his favorite things. One of his current favorite things is unplugging any and everything. That one keeps his parents on their toes. Silas, like most of us, loves to eat. His parents, Lauren and Grant, say, "he can out eat us all and he has the thighs to prove it!"
In his spare time, Silas enjoys unloading the dishwasher and emptying every cabinet.
And because Silas loves music, you can bet that if there's a song playing, he's dropping it like it's hot.
Silas does have a favorite song. From the Trolls movie, Whatcha Workin' With? by Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake is his go-to jam!
Among Silas's favorite things is his big brother Jack Henry.
"I got a little worried when JH didn't acknowledge Silas for the first 6 months. But JH still had quite a bit of growing up to do himself. One day it just clicked that this baby was here to stay. Some days they bicker back and forth, yes, even though Silas can't talk yet. 😂 But the sweetest thing is when JH asks where Silas is in the mornings and absolutely will NOT walk out the door without him." - Lauren
Silas loves his big brother and is so proud that he can walk now so he can match him step for step!
The second half of our session was filled with laughter as we watched Silas tear apart his smash cake. There was an occasional fist full of dirt mixed in with the cake, but he didn't seem to mind it.
"Although hectic, this season of our lives is one I know I will miss tremendously."
"Grant has worked tirelessly to ensure that I am able to stay home with them as to not miss any moments. The times where all 4 of us are on the floor laughing and cutting up is what I will treasure forever."
"My prayer every night is to be a littler better, for them, than I was yesterday. If I could tell my younger self anything, it would be to slow down. Be slow to anger and slow to speak. Be more patient and get down on the floor. Just PLAY! Cherish every second." - Lauren
