You turn 4 !!

Dear Elijah,

You are becoming such a big boy.  You are now 4 years old and getting so smart.   We went out for a birthday dinner and then came home to open your gifts.    You received lots of great presents:  Batman toys, pool and accessories, BMX bike w/ safety gear, etc...   You loved your Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream Cake too.

The last photograph in the slide shows you with a very sad face.  This is because you ran your bike into the trash can.  You got so mad you wanted your helmet off and to go inside.  I apologize now for us laughing at you, but you were so cute.  We  love that you are getting to be a big grown up boy; but we also love the fact that there are moments when that little boy comes out who just wants to snuggle and be full of loving emotions.   I love watching the love you show your mommy.  You know deep inside how hard she is working to make you a better life.  You are a lucky young man in so many ways.

Thank you, Elijah, for bringing such joy and love into our lives.
