Christmas Baby

Happy Birthday
Punkin Doodle Head

How I love this boy!

Four years old today.

Four years of wonderful.

Four years of meticulous.

Four years of watching him line up toys, sort things, wash his hands, and change his shirt if oatmeal gets on it. If he gets his sleeves a little bit wet when washing his hands, I know that a new shirt will soon be seen on his torso.

Four years of watching his face light up when food is mentioned.

Four years of observing his infatuation with his underwear. He walks past laundry baskets filled with clean, folded clothes, sees his underwear, can't stand it...so he picks them out of the baskets and goes and puts them in his underwear drawer where they belong.

Four years of listening to his sweet, sweet voice.

Four years of hearing him say, "Mama."

Happy Birthday wonderful one.

You fill this house with peace, sweetness and smiles.

I am blessed to have a front row seat to watch all the days of your life.

Happy Birthday my little buddy!

I love the way you come running through the house when people start singing Happy Birthday because you know that means CAKE! And you amaze me at how much you like things in straight lines.

You are cool.

Love you boy!

Ryan
