Friday Favorites-Nixon is NINE Edition!

Hey!  Hey!  FRIDAY!

Today is a BIG day in our house.  Nixon, who just turned two a couple months ago, is turning NINE-YEARS-OLD today!  How did that happen?!  I’m doing things a little differently here on the blog.  I shared all my favorites yesterday so if you missed it, please check those out.  Narci, Andrea, and I are hosting and bring you the fun linky party but today, I’m dedicating this space to my FAVORITE NINE-YEAR-OLD!

Let me introduce you to Nixon…my super helpful, crazy into sports, ALL BOY, who is wrapped around his three-year-old sister’s finger like no other sweet NINE-YEAR-OLD!

Nixon has always been a sports fanatic but now he’s officially hit that stage where he’s watching some sort of game anytime it’s his turn for the television.  He prefers to watch one of my least favorite things-OLD GAMES we’ve recorded.  {I don’t mind a sporting event in real time but if it’s recorded-especially years old-I’m OUT!  They are Nixon’s favorites.}  He’s still a HUGE Dude Perfect fan as well.

I mentioned it above but it’s worth noting again-Britt Slaughter can get Nixon to do ANYTHING for her.  He’s like a silly putty in her hands.  He. Cannot. Resist.  Their relationships is just the sweetest to witness.  While she loves all the kiddos, Nixon is her favorite because he lets her do ANYTHING she wants.  Play basketball outside?  He’ll do it.  Blow bubbles in the driveway?  He’ll do it.  Draw with a black Sharpie on his face?  He’d let her.  He has no willpower against his little sister.  And-it’s so sweet to watch.

In his spare time, Nix would prefer to be outside throwing a ball, kicking a ball, or hitting a ball.  And let me tell you-it’s a good thing he doesn’t get his hand/eye coordination from his mama.  He’d be in BIG trouble.  

What a blessing it is to be his mama.  We love this kid so much!  Happy Happy 9th Birthday Nixon-Man!

    Nixon is soooooooo sweet!!! I love having him over at my house because he's just so EASY AND SWEET!! We love that boy so much! I'm so thankful that Smith has him as his bestie…even if we won't let them ever connect their watches. Maybe when they're like 21, but not a minute before. Hahahaha!
