Phew these 2 weeks flew by and I was pretty much non existent on my computer, but it is time to wish my sweet little Drake HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  It was yesterday, September 21st, and what a fun few weeks we have had.  We have been celebrating birthdays non-stop around here. 

To my sweet Drake,

I can only imagine you will never never know what your life means to me.   You are my easy baby, my sweet baby, my cuddly baby.  You are so light hearted and happy-go-lucky.  You love to try new things, do anything and play.  You are just such a happy little guy and every single day your sweet beautiful face reminds me of angels.   You are so squishy and playful.  You LOVE to laugh.  You love to dress up in all kinds of clothes, you love your doggies so much and you think your brother is the coolest guy in the world.  Even though he is not always kind to you, you tell him you love him.  You tell mommy and daddy you love us all the time too which makes any bad moment seem non existent.  You LOVE to play sports and so far are great at anything you have tried.  You love watching all kinds of sports too and get into each game you see.  You love to talk in a deep voice (which is hysterical by the way), and you love to "tell jokes."  Your spirit lights up a room and you could make a single stranger feel like the most important person in the world.  I can only begin to imagine what you will be when you grow up, but I know you have truly made this world a much better place already.  We love you sweet baby boy!

Hunter is 4!!!!!!!!

When I woke up today, I could not believe I am the mother of a 4 year old...that is so crazy!!!!!! Though the days can seem endless at times, I feel like Hunter was just born yesterday.  How you have made our lives richer and so wonderful.

To Hunty,
There will never be a way we could ever express how much we love you. Words would never do it justice. You are the most spirited little boy I know. You are incredible intelligent, a very very deep thinker, competitive, strong, fiesty and stubborn. But more than that you are such a bright light that has created gorgeous life in our world. You have given us a reason to be better people, better Christians, better parents, and better at loving...oh and patience too. The things you know blow my mind and your smile can make all my worries pass. I am not sure how we ever lived life without you.
The best mornings of my life have been recently. You get in bed with us in the middle of the night, every night, and when I wake up to you rubbing my face or my arm and telling me you love me, I know I am the luckiest mommy in the world.
And your daddy loves getting to spend time with just you. You have such a happy jump in your step when you two are together and you love adventures you get to take with him.

Though you and Drakey fight, you also can be the sweetest brother to him as well. Drake is certain you hung the moon and wants to be just like you.
You remind each one of us that miracles do happen. You are perfect in your own way and are so proud of you and cannot wait to watch you grow. You have blessed our lives more than you will ever know!!!
