My Sweet Boy is FOUR!!

Where has the time gone?!  It's been four years since our Jacob came into our world and almost five since we found out we were expecting (SURPRISE!!!).  It was the best surprise I've ever been blessed with.  I was in love since the moment I laid eyes on him.  The ladies at the hospital were scolding me, telling me to put him down and let him sleep somewhere other than on my chest, but I just couldn't.  I loved the sweet way he smelled, the little faces he'd make, how warm he was...everything!! He was the absolute sweetest.

And then he grew into the funniest little boy, full of personality and joy.  He LOVES to make people laugh, make silly faces, play music, dance, play superheroes and, thankfully, he's still such a cuddle bug!!

Jacob, I'm so thankful to be your mommy.  Daddy and I love you more than words.  I know you continue to grow with that insatiable talent to make people around you feel joy, the sweetness of spirit you warm our hearts with, the love of music that I'm so happy we share and a love for the people you encounter every day that makes you a joy to be around.  I pray that your love for people grows into a desire to give and serve those around you, your love of music develops into a desire to show others Jesus through music, that your tenacity of personality turns into drive, that your sweetness will help you to walk in humility and that you never allow your joy to be taken away by the everydayness of life as you grow older.  Know that you make me laugh every day, make my heart more full every day and remind me every day of how blessed I am that God chose us to send you to.  You are precious and I pray that I will never take one moment with you for granted.  I love you!!!  And your Daddy does too.  Speaking of your Daddy, be like him- you share that insatiable joy and love to make people laugh.  He gives to our family so selflessly.  Never forget to thank him for that and learn from it.  You have a great example of how to be a father in your daddy.  One day, a long, long, long time from now you'll find that example to be extremely helpful in raising your own babies.

And, here's a sneak peek of Jacob's TMNT birthday party yesterday!!  He had so much fun at our Sunday afternoon in the park with our family and friends.  We're so happy they were there to celebrate our boy with us.  More to come!
