Oh Boy ~ Happy Birthday


Thank you for the balloons Debbie! You totally rocked the day!!!






Buby turns 4 today. It doesn't seem real. I remember giving birth to him like it was yesterday. I remember the first time he rocked back and forth on his hands and knees and the first time he bumped his head on a toy dump truck. I remember the first time he said "blueberry" and accidentally dropped a car in the toilet. I remember the day he gave up nursing and the first time I left him with Grandma to go into the city. I remember burying his bink in the backyard and cheering for him at The Little Gym. I remember teaching him to share at play dates and brave the slides at parks. I remember reluctantly letting go of his hand when the doctors wheeled him into surgery {for his eye}. I remember his first cookie from Kitty and when he graduated to a big-boy shower. I remember laying in his itty bitty bed for hours reading books. I remember his first time eating a whole apple {at Grace's house} and his first plane ride {to Florida}. I remember him mooing like a cow in his first school play. I remember crying in my car after dropping him off at his first field trip to a pumpkin farm. I remember the day I put my career on hold to spend more time with him. The last 4 years have been so jam-packed with goodness. I don't even know where to start, except to say that we are blessed beyond measure.

Wow, that's beautiful! You are so brave, I know us mama's have to go through so much, but where you said "I remember letting go of his hand, while going into surgery" broke my heart, I know I would have been balling and I was as I read that! He's a wonderful little man and you've done a fantabulous job my friend! Love, Maria
