"I'm 4, not 3 anymore"

Jack is very happy that he is four.  Actually he is already talking about turning 5 next year.  He keeps talking about how he is getting all the way big.  And he is growing like a weed!  He hasn't gained any weight in the last 6 months, he's holding steady at 42 lbs, but he grew 2 inches in three months.  He is getting very tall and turning into quite the little boy. 

The last year has been filled with a lot of firsts.  His first sleep-over without us; His first out-of-country vacation; leaps and bounds in his language skills; and really forming friends and being aware of other people's feelings.  

He loves his cousins.  Really, those are the people he asks to be with most.  And his Papa and his best friend Ellie.  His social calendar would be filled every day if I let it :-)  

He was getting really tired by the end of the party, and then we had 26 people at our house for Easter dinner and a huge egg hunt.  We are still finding eggs in the yard :-)  Jack thinks it's great!  Me, well, a day like that at this stage of pregnancy was not the smartest idea.  

Jack can't wait to be a big brother.  He knew we were going to have his birthday, then daddy's birthday, then mommy's birthday, and then the baby will be joining us.  We are just stacking all of the birthdays on top of each other. 

I am so proud of him and how far he has come in the last year.  He is an amazing little boy and I am so lucky to be his mom!
