4 years ago today, this handsome, blonde haired, blue eyed boy came into our lives. at 5:56 am on june 15, 2011 our lives changed forever. for the better. much better.
last year it was hard to believe that he was already 3.
but this year, again, it's so hard to believe that now four whole years have passed. four years since we were a family of 3. four years since brookelyn was an only child. four years since we've known what peace & quiet in our home was like. and i wouldn't change any of it. not a single thing.
those blue eyes melt my heart. every day. it's so hard to imagine loving someone as much as i love this little guy (and his sister of course). he's goofy, stubborn, sweet, kind, caring, loud, feisty, smart, cuddly, a pain in the butt and my very favorite little boy, ever!
this morning we'll celebrate with cohen's breakfast of choice, donuts, then we're headed to pick up his cake and spend some time at the park (his request). the rest of our day will be spent swimming at grandma's with the cousins, bbqing and celebrating with family. saturday afternoon is the big party.
Dear Sweet Cohen,
Today you turn 4! HOW did that happen, buddy? It seems like just yesterday we found out that you were growing in my belly. You have been such an amazing blessing to our family the past 4 years. Each and every day of my life you bring so much joy & happiness to me. You fill my heart with love & laughter. From the moment I wake up to your stinky breath kisses on my face, to listening to you pray over our breakfast, watching your imagination go wild as you rescue people from the bad guys, snuggling in the afternoon & reading books, seeing your face light up when Brookelyn gets home from school, to the bath & bedtime struggles.. every moment is awesome and a joy and a moment that I wouldn't give up for anything else in the world.
You and your sister complete me and our family. Buddy, you're the greatest little brother and friend. You have more energy than I can imagine ever having. The way you use your imagination and get into a character, cracks us up and keeps us smiling.
I hope that as you grow you'll always be such a kind little man, caring brother and son.
We hope that tomorrow and Saturday you feel special and celebrated. And, that you always, always know how very much we love you! Happy, happy, happy 4th Birthday, Mr.Moo!!!
We love you to the moon & back, and there & back again!
linking up here, for instafriday.
this past week was great & busy. saturday & sunday i found some awesome goodies while garage sale-ing with my mom, matt & i got lots of projects around the house started & finished. brookelyn's mood was lifted thanks to a good morning at church on sunday. thankfully. and all week long we spent lots of time getting ready for cohen's party this weekend.
happy friday, friends! what are your weekend plans?
