He’s four!

April 6th, 2014

(This post was planned last year, but never got finished when my chronic pain made it too difficult to use a computer. Please forgive the tardiness and enjoy. Oh, and after a bit I’ll move it to last year for better chronological order.)

Oh, where has the time gone? Our wonderful Boots is four!!

001

I love how much he enjoyed wearing the special birthday crown just like his big brother did.

012

And I love when he gets quiet and focused. That’s how you know something is really important to him.

020

He never asks for much, so I loved surprising him with a tube of Thomas toothpaste just like his little brother’s.

035

He often asks to use his little brother’s and will love having his own!

027

I love how his pants are always too long.

031

And his shirts are always just right.

059

And his face is as sweet as can be.

060

And the wrinkle nose!

053

His brothers just love him and it warms my heart.

064

He asked for pancakes and eggs.

067

Man, I love that smile.

074

And those incredible eyes.

081

Someday I’ll figure out how to describe them.

088

He wanted a Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader cake, so we searched for a picture online and he picked this one. (With a little nudging from me because the others he picked were way out of my artistic league.) Then he wanted to add R2D2. And C3Po.

The little cutie was easy to please. I love that.

Later on, the guests arrived for Boots’ first birthday party with friends!

098

First they defeated Darth Vader!

100

Then Boots got the first swing at the Death Star!

104

*WHACK!*

106

We made this one a bit too sturdy, so we gave big brother the light saber and told him to do some damage. I love how sensitive Boots is to loud noises. After his first hit, he didn’t want to hit it anymore. But he kept watching with eager anticipation and covered ears.

124

Then he moved even further away! So cute.

127

After that it was time for dessert!

131

He got quiet and focused again as his friends sang to him for the first time. I wished I could read his thoughts.

135

Then he did it!

139

Just look at that smile! What a cutie.

142

All of his friends and even his grandparents, Papa and gg, were there! What a special day.

I love you, sweet boy, with all of my heart! Thank you for being my dear son.

Thanks so much for sharing the wonderful adventure of Boots’ 4th birthday. It looked like such fun. I especially liked how Darth Vader looked very realistic–wow–and the cake decorating was great–you’re very brave. Boots was adorable as usual.
