What do you want for your birthday?
BOY OH BOY!!!!
I feel like that's all I need to say about you, buddy!
At 4 years old, you are
high energy, rough and tumble, curious, silly, and yet,
gentle, loving, scared of bugs, and still like to snuggle in mama & daddy's arms.
Having a little brother pretty much made your whole LIFE this year. You've been so helpful and affectionate with Colton...and now that he's old enough to interact with you more....you get the biggest belly giggles from him every time you try.
You are Daddy's little shadow....
Today you may be a Ninja Turtle....tomorrow a Cowboy again in the morning, a Farmer in the afternoon, and a Hunter in between.
You change clothes almost as often as you change your mind....and have worn the soles right off your Cowboy boots.
I get to see glimpses of the future when you look up at me with the Big Blue eyes and tell me I look pretty or you like my outfit, or best yet: "I love you!" with a sweet little kiss....someday...some girl is going to be sooo very lucky to hear the same.
But right now, you are ALL mine. (okay, I'll share you with Daddy)
I will take all those hugs and kisses....and steal a few here and there.
I will let you climb into bed when there is a storm.
I will sing you to sleep, and wipe away those boo-boos.
And, I will try and let you grow up a SLOOOOWLY as I possibly can.
I LOVE YOU, my Sweet Boy!
HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY!!!!
