At 6:59 am on Saturday morning I heard the pitter patter of little feet outside my door, the door opened, then "I'm 4 now". This kids had been counting down for weeks. I wanted to tell him he still had one hour and 7 minutes but I got up and we got the day started.
We let him have our gift early. This kid would have been happy with a .99 pencil sharpener. He was just happy to have a birthday.
We got him some action figures. He already has Spider-Man but not the other three bad guys. Between the two of them we probably have about 15 of these type of action figures. They play with them all the time.
I still had a certificate for Krispy Kreme leftover from our Spring fundraiser so that was our breakfast treat.
We spent the rest of the day cleaning and getting ready for the party and answering the question, "when is everyone getting here", about 942 times. Finally, 4:00 rolled around and we had a packed house.
It was the usual of family and the Reid's.
A friend from church made the cupcakes, A-dorable! Tasted great too!
I had a mom blog fail during present time, I only got pictures of the first one, a new bike helmet from Mamaw and Papaw.
He was just so sweet with everything. He really is an easy kid to please. He also shared so well, especially when you have a big brother who tries to take over every single gift.
This is actually from today but I had to share. I always tell Tracey not to worry about getting my kids anything when we have parties, that's not the reason we have a party. Plus my kids get so much, way too much really. So it's been a running joke now that Tracey gets him snacks. After dropping Cooper off today, he couldn't wait to get home and eat the goldfish that Maggie gave him. Oh, he also calls Maggie his girlfriend.
I can't believe this sweet boy is four. When I say sweet, I mean it. He's the most loving child. Always wants to be loved and hugged on. When my mom comes over he always asks her to come rock him. He has a stuffed tiger from the zoo that he calls his baby. He can't go to sleep without his baby and his doggy blanket. I can't leave his room without saying goodnight and by his bed isn't good enough, I must say it as I'm shutting the door. When someone comes over and it's time for them to leave, he goes to Cooper's room and watches them from the window until they are out of sight. He does this when Steve leaves for work in the morning too. Just incredibly sweet!
Happy Birthday baby boy!
