Happy 4th Birthday Griffin!

My baby is 4! (or he will be 1/5/12)

Where has the time gone? I know he is no longer a baby but he is MY BABY and always will be. He is as big as his older brothers and as active. He may be "Different" by everyones standards but not by mine. He is smart, funny, brave, and he is the ONLY child that doesn't talk back!

Every year I write my children a love letter on their birthday...

Dear Grif,

4 years have flown by! Just yesterday you were this tiny little baby, bouncing his little feet off. Now you are a big boy who loves music and school.

You have the sweetest face. You may not say much but your expressions tell me all I need to know. I love that you call me "Bobby" instead of Mommy. It is something that is all your own. You look at me and say "I lub youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu", that makes any bad mood just melt away. You make yourself laugh and can amuze yourself for hours on end with your iPod. No matter how many times we erase your "history" on your device you can always find the same videos and watch them over and over. You can say ALL your ABC's and count to 20. You are an outdoor baby! You prefer to be outside playing and LOVE the playground at school.

You love to sing! Who said a non-verbal child can't carry a tune never met you. Right now you love the vocal stylings of Bruno Mars and Telly Monster from Sesame street. Your tastes are quite electic! Your not a BIG sleeper. You prefer to hang out with Mommy and Daddy after your brothers go to sleep. Snuggling on the couch is my favorite pastime by far.

You are a joy to take places. As long as you have your iPod we can go anywhere. People sometimes stop and stare but you don't seem to mind. You are just absolute perfection to me. Everyday you make me proud to be your mother. I know you will be a great man, I'm your mother and I know these things. I love you more than you will ever know!
