Rubber Ducky, Pate is O•N•E• This rubber duck loving baby had such a fun day! He’s out for the count now, but we are so thankful for the love he’s continually shown. #patefranklin #firstbirthday #rubberducky #luckyduck #slipandslide #kiddiepool #partyintherain #waterbaby #oneyearold #timepleaseslowdown
A year ago, a little 7 lb 4 oz baby changed our lives. He has brought us so much joy and excitement. He has taught me about love and patience and enjoying simple things and how incredible it is to have someone love you in a way that’s incomprehensible. Today, he’s 22 lbs and 6 oz. He’s 29 inches long and has 8 teeth! #patefranklin #birthdayboy #firstbirthday
Michael, we are so thankful to have you in our lives. You love us well and work hard to support our family. The sacrifices you make do not go unnoticed. I knew going into this relationship with you that you loved Mikie more than anything in this world. But you have surpassed my hopes and desires of how our family would be. Pate, Mikie, and I are beyond lucky that you’re the pillar of our family. #fathersday #mikieiii #patefranklin #michaeljoetheii #boys #dadofboys #daddysboys💙
Happy Birthday to my main girlfriend! She’s the best around. Couldn’t ask for a better, mother, advisor, meemaw, best friend, babysitter, confidante, and role model. Janice Pate, you’re the real deal. We love you far past the moon. And ALL THE WAY BACK. Over and over.
Y’all, Pate fell asleep accidentally last night before 9! This momma was so excited. But he woke up about 9:45: cue the first picture. He was so mad. Like maybe he missed out on something—he didn’t. But don’t worry, he was fine soon after. Didn’t fall asleep til his normal 11:30. 🤦🏻♀️ #patefranklin #mommasboy💙 #andidontwannamissathing #nightowl #sleeptrainingfail #bossbaby #somad #babyboy
This little baby is 10 months old today. He has brought so much joy and laughter to my life. He keeps me grounded and kind. He has taught me about love in a way no one else ever has. He has shown me grace and has made me whole. Pate is 29” inches long, 21 pounds, and so full of life. He has •SIX• teeth, loves pulling up, crawling fast, playing outside, laughing, smiling, clapping, eating, seeing those he loves, and being the center of attention. #patefranklin #mommasboy #mommasboy💙 #10monthsold #timeflieswhenyourehavingfun #bestbaby
