4th Birthday!

On Saturday, January 30th, my sweet baby boy turned four! FOUR! How is that even possible? He is my sweet angel BABY--not a big four year old. I'm still in shock!
For his birthday we went to the local bowling alley with a friend, per his request. The friend he requested happens to be Princess's best friend, so both my children were happy. My little guy just adores his sister's friends, that is for sure!
Handsome loved using the ball ramp and ended up with the top score of the three children--even though the girls are two years older than he is! He just loves bowling even though he's only been to the real bowling alley twice. Santa put a mini bowling set in his stocking and he loves that little gift so much!
We had so much fun celebrating his birthday and it was wonderful to have good friends join us!
Later that day we went out to lunch at Red Robin and my husband took this picture of me with my baby at 12:26pm--the moment of his birth four years ago. It was a very difficult c-section. During the end of my pregnancy I had nerve problems with my leg and my doctor suspects that is why the spinal didn't completely work and I felt every (and I do mean every) thing the doctors did on one side of my body. It was the strangest and most intense pain I've ever felt in my life, but I desperately wanted to see my little boy right after his birth, so I refused additional medication until after he was delivered. After seeing all 10lbs 2oz of him (he was smaller than my daughter!), I was quite relieved to go into la-la land though!
He was thrilled when it was cupcake time after dinner! I've made cupcakes for my babies every year for their birthdays--including their real Birth Days in the hospital!
My silly, silly boy!
Happy birthday to the sweetest, smartest, and most loved little boy in the entire world. I love you like mice love cheese. I love you like vines love trees. I love you like boots love stomping in puddles. I love you like...
