Happy Birthday to my 4 Year Old

Wait, what?  I have a 4 year old?  How is that possible?  I would like to be in denial, but he is so happy to be 4 that I wouldn't want to deny it for his sake. He is such a big boy and so sweet and very funny.  He gives the greatest big squeeze hugs.  Food is not a priority to him and he has to be coached through most meals.  He sleeps all snuggled up with his 'friend's (Maurice, Ginger, Digger) and some morning will sleep as late as 8:00!  His favorite toys are things that shoot - guns and bow&arrow.  He has gotten very good at writing his name and can do all except the 'e' that he sometimes needs help with.  He loves playing soccer at school and baseball in the backyard with Daddy.

We started the day with chocolate sprinkled doughnut and candles.  He was very hard to wake up...like me singing happy birthday twice before Justin had to shake him to wake him up.

He was then greeted at Nammy's with his first birthday gift of the day!  He was so excited and played with his new light saber all day! Mom brought the kids over to eat lunch at chick-fil-a close to my work so that I could have lunch with him to.  I loved having that extra time with them during the day, wish I didn't have to go back to work!!

So, what does every 4 year old want to do for his birthday?  This 4 year old wanted to mow and blow!  And so that is exactly what he did and was so happy to be doing 'hard work' with daddy.

Papoo bought him a REAL blower, this isn't a toy/child blower but is a cordless real blower and this little boy is THRILLED to have a real blower to use and work with.  We shouldn't have a single piece of dirt on our driveway or patio from this point forward.  Hard work!

After the hard work was completed.  Nammy and Pops joined us for dinner and gifts and his birthday cookies!! It was such a fun and special day.  I think it was a special day for him too!   

and no birthday is complete without licking birthday candles!

I love this little boy with all that I have.  He is sweet.  He is loving.  He is a true blessing to our family. He always makes us laugh and has such a tender and compassionate heart.  Happy Birthday to my sweet little man!
