I cannot believe that Alex is 4 years old today. Seriously. How did this:
I don’t even get it. The last four years, being this little boys mom have been insane! Alex is so curious and stubborn and smart and sweet and… I am just so overwhelmed with the love I feel for him. I cannot believe it’s been four years already since the first time I held him and counted those little fingers and toes and marveled in what an amazing miracle we had created. Alex looks so much like his Daddy but he is his Momma through and through. I hear myself come out of his mouth so often that I can’t help but shake my head and worry about his teenage years.
This year I had his party at the end of November. He wanted to go with a Sheriff Callie theme. Sheriff Callie is a western show about a Calico Cat who is the sheriff of a small town… it is very much geared towards little girls and everything I was finding for this theme was pink. We had an adventure turning it into a little boys party. But we did it. With the help of some awesome people. And I bought the kid a pinata. Yep I am crazy. I bought a pinata for my almost 4 year old’s indoor party. He was so excited though! It was worth it.
This little boy has brought a light to my life. I can’t believe four years has already gone by. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Momma loves you, Alex, to the moon and back!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
