The Christmas rush is over and the toys have been organized
crammed into the overflowing toy bins and today being December 28th marks Cole's 4th birthday. The entire day has bittersweet and I just can't believe that my little boy is 4 years old! As we all know, time flies by WAY too quickly and to think that 4 years has passed since Cole was born is absolutely mind boggling. I remember 4 years ago quite well and the one thing that stands out in my mind the most is the overwhelming feeling of love. A feeling I never knew was possible.
Cole's birth story is long, a bit dramatic and something I haven't yet posted, but hopefully will someday. After the 36 hour experience, I was holding my huge newborn (who ended up being 3 weeks over due, I kid you not!) and I couldn't take my eyes of him. My heart felt as though it was going to burst and I don't think you could have wiped that exhausted grin off my face if you had of tried. I thanked God that day and everyday after for blessing our family with a healthy, beautiful baby boy.
Cole, you are so full of life and energy that some days it's exhausting, but in a good way. On those days I know we've played enough, sang enough, laughed and loved enough and for that I am truly grateful. We have our arms to hug each other with, our eyes to see each other's smiles, our ears to hear the laughter and our hearts to feel the love. We are all healthy and happy and couldn't ask for anything more.
You bring such joy in to my life and every single day you teach me something. Sometimes it's a reminder to not sweat the small stuff and to enjoy life, other times it's the simplest things, something that only an adult would over analyze.
You make me laugh and for this I am so thankful. You are full of silliness and are such fun, you make everyone laugh with your silly dance moves and funny sayings...a silly boy for sure.
You are a smart boy and amaze me with how well you are doing in school in both French and English. You are writing letters, recognizing numbers, drawing and best of all, you are expressing yourself in everything that you do.
You have become quite the little guy and I am so proud of you.
Happy birthday baby boy! I hope that all of your dreams come true.
I love you more than anything in the world.
Love Mommy xo
