Today we celebrated 4 years of Silas!
Spongebob square pants style.
My first time trying homemade marshmallow fondant. It was surprisingly easy.
My party planner extraordinaire Aili and I decorated our dining room in ocean colors of aqua , green and Spongebob yellow.
I put a little more planning and effort into making this birthday a special one. He has been obsessing about it since the day of his last birthday. Literally. He has asked almost daily if we could have a birthday party for him. Sometimes several times a day.
It's all about the cake!
This goofy grin boy LOVES cake.
I really can't believe that my baby is 4.
This is the longest I have gone in a decade without being pregnant or nursing a baby. Seems strange. Not that I haven't had my share of babies since then....but he is the last one to originate from my body. I have mixed feelings about that. I see God's hand on our life and on our dreams. Our house is full and so are our arms. I love our new little girl just as much as the children who were born from my womb, but there is something about carrying and nursing a baby that I will miss.
He is looking and acting more and more like a big kid every day. I stare at him and wonder where my baby boy went.
Age four has been a turning point for each of my kids as they leave the last of the barbaric toddler years behind and start to morph into a more logical civilized child. They just seem to get easier at 4.
I am looking forward to seeing this boy continue to transform , although I'm digging in my heals at the idea of him growing up this fast.
Happy 4th birthday to my sweet, smart, silly boy.
