you went to sleep three
and woke up four!

zachary was sure that you’d grown overnite

“mom! he’s all the way up to here!!”
(hand a mouth level)
“he used to be here…right?”
(hand at stomach level)

you are definitely joining the ranks of the big boys:

riding your two-wheeler
going to school
telling me letters
and their sounds

but i’m glad you still love to snuggle
and sneak that thumb into your mouth
give me hugs and kisses
want me to sleep with you at night
kisses your boo-boos when you fall

happy birthday –
we love you very much!!!

  1. Where did Friday go? I cannot believe … and yet I can … that we missed singing Happy Birthday to Benjamin! Bum deal!
