Birthday BOY!

4 years old??! Really?!
Oh sweet little man, watching them sing to you at school the other day, wearing your birthday hat and sticker, laughing and playing with all of your friends...I realized, where did the time go? Our hearts grew a million times over when you were born!! We changed in SO many wonderful ways when you came into our lives FOUR years ago, today!
I know I am a better person because of YOU,
YOU help me see what life is all about,
YOU make life look so simple,
YOU always have a smile on your face, unless Daddy and I have upset you!
YOU love your brother and he looks up to you SO much,
he wants to do any and everything YOU do, ALWAYS!
YOU and those dimples?...enough said!
YOU make Daddy and I laugh like crazy...always being silly!
YOU are full of energy,
YOU love being outside, you'd stay out there ALL DAY LONG if we'd let you
YOU love when its just the four of us, and we do too!
and most of all...YOU ARE YOU!
You are THE greatest thing that happened to Mommy and Daddy,
and this day, four years ago...our hearts grew a million times over
as we held this precious baby boy!
We love you "way up to the moon and back".

My heart aches knowing you're growing SO fast, almost too fast?
and I know one day you won't want Mommy hugging and kissing all over you,
or Mommy dancing with Daddy in the living room while you sit at our feet,
or snuggling up with you in the mornings,
or holding my hand everywhere we go,
or shouting, "I love you, Mommy" from first base on the tball field(I LOVE THIS!) I'll do it as much as I can right NOW. Ha!

Happy Birthday Jacob! Oh yes, savor those moments. (I love that he yells to you "I love you Mommy.") These will definitely be memories you will have to remind him of when he enters his teen years, but (gulp) let's not think about that. Enjoy his fourth year Marissa!
