how does it feel to be 4 years old? do you remember mommy asking you that when you turned 4 almost 2 weeks ago? you were so excited to have your birthday!
it's hard to imagine that it was only 4 years ago that we welcomed you into the world...from a little baby in diapers to a little boy in underwear. what?!? isn't it amazing how much you've changed, and how quickly time has passed? you are a sweet boy, and i'm secretly (well, i guess now it's not such a secret) still happy to have you crawl into bed and snuggle with me every once in a while. i love your sweet snuggles.
we started your day making your birthday sign, and you enjoyed being able to help decorate it. then, daddy took you to pick up doughnuts for birthday breakfast. we're so glad you were willing to share them with us, because they were quite tasty!
we waited for daddy to come home before digging in to your birthday dinner of choice: barbeque meatballs and lemon green beans. then it was on to presents while we waited for our food to digest and make room for dessert.
this year, instead of cupcakes, you opted for the birthday brownie cake, with a specific request for shaved coconut on top. it was a fun challenge to figure out how to incorporate that into the cake, but i think you were pretty satisfied with the results.
we hope you had a super wonderful birthday, sweet boy. yes...boy. not baby. but you told me you'll always be my "baby cash." and even if someday you've become too big for those sweet snuggles with your mama, i know you'll still be my "baby cash." we are thankful for how you have blessed our family with your smile, your silliness, your laughter, and for just being you.
we love you so much, cashy! happy birthday!
