Happy Birthday Michael!

I can hardly believe that my "baby" is 4!!!
It seems like just yesterday, that I was on the way to the hospital to be induced, with my sweet Michael. I had a very easy labor, I was induced two weeks early at 4:30pm on March 23rd, and delivered Michael Daniel weighing 5lbs 9 oz at 7:19 PM. Michael was such a good baby he nursed until he was 18 months old. He was a good sleeper until he turned two.... :) He is my "spirited child". He has such a big heart, but likes to "march to the beat of his own drum".... Michael is the one that makes my Dad's eyes twinkle, he just laughs when I tell him the latest thing that Michael has done. Apparently, I am getting a taste of how I was.(Hard to believe, I know :) )
We had dinner & celebrated at Red Robin with my Dad last night and with cake and presents.
He got so many fun things, Wii games and new books.
I bought him a new pillow..... a couple of months ago, I bought a new pillow for myself, and he has been nuts about it, So I decided to get him his own. Matthew got him a Pokemon DS game. Daddy got him the hamburger slider cooker, which he has been wanting for months! He also got Bolt and a new DVD player of his own, it is portable and "kid tough".
His actual family/friend party will be on Saturday, we are having it at a local soccer club and Michael is counting down the days!
Michael you will ALWAYS be my baby! Happy 4th Birthday "Twinks"!
We love you!

Thank you God for the gift of my sweet Michael, please watch over him as he grows and keep him healthy and safe, always!

"I pray that the Lordwill bless you . . .as long as you live."
Psalm 128:5

This is SO sweet and I'm so emotional...I'm holding back tears at you holding Micheal for the first time. You look so radiant and happy and he's so precious! Happy 4th birthday! Red Robin rocks and I love that he got a pillow! :) You're such a good mama and that cake looks delish.
