4 Years!!!

It brings back such great memories as I look through all of Ryan's pictures the last years. Seeing him for the first time melted my heart and I don't know if I ever could have imagined the joy he would bring me in just 4 years. Everyday is such an adventure with my very active energetic loving son. There are moments when we are both sitting still,which doesn't happen very often, that I look at him and cannot help but smile wondering how I got so blessed to call him mine. 

Ryan, I love you more than I can ever express. The day you were born was one of my most happiest moments ever and the fact that I get to spend each day with someone that brings me such joy is something I hope I never take for granted. Even though you challenge me each day in ways I never thought I would be challenged you bring out a love inside of me that I never thought was there. I pray each day God gives us wisdom to raise you as He would and I promise that with all that is inside of me I will do my best to be the parent that God has called me to be. I love you sweet, sweet boy and I am so happy to be celebrating with you today.

Happy birthday to one of the most precious 4 years olds in my life. You are a special little boy and I am so glad that I have been able to watch you grow. Can't wait for all of the other adventures I will get to watch. Love you Ryan!!

P.S. Even though it didn't seem like it, Olivia LOVED your party today! Thanks for inviting us, even if we didn't play the super hero role very well. We will leave that job up to you, SUPER RYAN!!!

From the time Lilli and Ryan were in our bellies to today, I know we were all meant for each other!!! Lilli loves Ryan in such a special way. To say they are best friends is funny to us because they are so young. Yet, in my little girl's heart Ryan is her favorite and her best.

Here's to many more years of our loud, expressive, out going, loud, energetic, bouncy, singing, loud, dressed up and crazy duo!! HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN ROCKET!!! You are super and we love you a BIG OL' BUNCH!!!
