Happy Birthday Baby!

My Dear Roo,
Happy Birthday! You are 4 years old now. Oh my, how fast it has gone. It seems like just yesterday you came home from the hospital, an 8 pound 3 ounce bundle of cute with my blue eyes and the lightest blond hair. Immediately I was in love.

Every time I look at you, for just a second I see you like this. This is the first time I saw you, via a photo taken by Daddy.

This year has been different for you, in good ways. While you were 3 you graduated from a sippy cup. You have made huge improvements to your speech. I am so proud of you on that. When you were 2 you didn't talk a lot. You could say a few words, but you were mostly quiet. At 3, you talk a lot but it is mostly jibber jabber. Your vocabulary has grown incredibly. I love it when you talk to me.

My happy boy!

You became a big brother when you were 3. You take the job seriously and you love Harper. You often make her laugh and give her kisses. She looks up at you with wide eyes and a huge smile. You are too cute when she cries and you say "Hi Baby Harper Rae, I pet you!" to try to soothe her and you pet her head, much like one would a cat.

You have wonderful manners. I often hear how polite you are from others. I love that you say "Good Morning" and "Thank you" at every opportunity. I hope you always have that polite and sweet attitude.

You are such a cute little boy Roo!

When I had Harper and we were apart for a few days your daddy told me there was one thing that could always be said about you. You are loyal to your mother. I love that you always come to me. Just last week, you got hurt at the park, as your Dad tried to check you out you ran to me with such urgency that you knocked me off of my feet. We were in a heap on the ground, and you held onto me as tight as you could. I hope you will always come to me. {Roo was fine, just a little scared.}

Roo, I love you! You are my best buddy. A great helper, smart and almost too cute for your own good.
Happy Birthday! I can't wait to see what the age of 4 holds for you!
