My Baby is 4

Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that we headed to the hospital early in the morning to have you...Dad wondered why I just couldn't have my babies say at 1 pm rather than 1 am? Didn't seem to work that way with you and your next older brother!

You definitely are our ball of fire! You want to do everything that your brothers do. You have no fear. I am thinking you could have a future as the class clown! You always have a way to make people laugh. You are ornery, but I love you just as you are.

This is from your 1st birthday. You seemed to really enjoy the cake!

This is when you decided that lotion should be hair gel.

Boy did we get a laugh out of this one!

We had plenty of fun getting that out. I think your hair was

greasy for a week!

You have grown up so quickly...guess that is what happens when you are the youngest of three boys. You have accomplished a few things this year. You learned to ride a two wheeled bike last summer. You just recently decided that you were a big boy now and gave up your "night night" (basically a baby cloth diaper that you would carry all over and especially needed when you were ready for bed) I was so proud of you for just doing it cold turkey!

You love to ride your bike, you love to swing, you love to play with your brothers, you love pancakes for breakfast, and you love to play with action figures.

Looking forward to the new adventures you will bring our way in the next year. There is never a dull moment when you are around!

We love you big boy!!!

Family Fun Feast

Last Saturday, the boys and I headed to their school for the Family Fun Feast.
When I was in school, I remember it as the Spring Carnival!
Maybe they do not use that name since it is not officially spring!
The boys had a great time!
There was face painting,
Pin the tail on the monkey,group dancing,
and an intense game of bingo!

They also participated in the stuffed animal walk. (Cake walk ran
out of goodies!)
It did bring back memories for me of the spring carnivals I used to go to
at my grade school and how much I would love to go.
There was the ring toss, duck game, cake walk etc.
You would also get the tootsie roll or cheap trinkets as prizes that
as a kid you think are the coolest things.
As a mom...I despise that crap taking up space in a drawer or on a cupboard!
I throw them away as soon as I can without anyone knowing!
Our Saturdays have been jam packed with activities the past few
weeks, but I really love this time I have with the boys.
This is Jim's busy time so keeping the boys busy and their mind off of
missing dad is always a good thing!
By the way, not the best picture quality wise of Connor dancing.
I think I forget to turn the flash one, but I love the smile on his
face while he is so enjoying himself doing the group dance.
