I was just reading your 3 year old blog post...
And you are still the same sweet, strong, funny little boy, just older!
From the day you were born your personality of being a strong willed little human was so apparent.
As everyday goes by, and every year that passes you grow into yourself and so many of your characteristics shine through!
You LOVE to make everyone laugh! You constantly say funny things or make funny faces or act silly to get us to laugh, your cousins LOVE You for that too!
You are a bright happy little boy. That brings smiles to everyone!
You will ask everyone if they are happy. If we say we are not happy for any reason, you will let us know to STOP THAT and tell us TO BE HAPPY! haha. How can we not be happy with your big energy around us!
Mommy and Daddy talk about you all the time! Sharing your funny stories or hilarious videos you make.
You are a smart driven 4 year old with big emotions. You know what you want and make decisions that are good for you. AT 4! some of us adults can't even do that haha! We will always be right here for you to guide you and help you grow into your best self.
I LOVE that you know what you want, even when we try to convince you into doing something WE want you to do. You will fight and fight until you get your way. I hope this very attitude stays with you forever... At 4 you live your authentic self! One example of that, is your hair. Mommy wants to cut your hair SHORT. You do not agree, you want your curls long and messy as you tell us. haha! I styled your hair for your school pictures and by the time the picture were taken, your hair was "messy" as you like it. Which was perfect for your portrait because that is YOU AT 4! And the cutest!!
This year you became a big brother And had no problem transitioning into that roll. You love your baby brother and can't wait for him to interact with you. I am sure you will be the boss. sorry Michael haha. You love taking on that role with us and telling us what to do haha!
You follow rules, well the ones you want to follow. You will get very heated if something didn't happen the way it's suppose to be (your words). Or if you wore your indoor shoes outside. OH BOY we had a couple of those meltdowns. When I tried to calm you down and tell you that it was OK to wear the indoor shoes outdoors, you looked at me with a very serious face and yelled, NO IT IS NOT OK!
You surprise us all the time! You are always listening! Even when we think you aren't. Your memory is sharp and you memorize things we didn't even know you were paying attention to.
You are a mini us, we see soo much of ourselves in you.
WE are sooo blessed to be your parents! We love you sooo much!
