Today my sweet baby Jonah is four years old. I CANNOT believe it. This past year has truly flown by. He’s made so much progress with his speech, and his personality is REALLY showing through. He’s a stubborn but sweet little booger. I’ve taken to calling him a “threenager” all year and I’m kinda bummed because “fournager” just doesn’t have that same ring to it.
This is the first year Jonah has really understood his birthday and what it’s all about, and so I had BIG plans for today…and then he woke up sick. (Good thing I stayed up til 12:30 making and frosting those gluten free cupcakes for him to take to school, right? Sigh.)
So, today, I don’t know if our plans will work out or not. There will be cake, and there will be presents, but that may be all! We were planning to take him bowling tonight because he is obsessed with Wii bowling and he thought Sophie’s bowling party last month on her 8th birthday was the best day of his entire life. But now, we will just have to see.
Regardless of how high or low key the celebrating is, I’m just thankful I have my little sweetheart here to cuddle today. He was the blessing God gave us that we weren’t planning or expecting and he brings so much joy to our family. It’s a privilege to be his mama, to bake his cupcakes and wipe his snotty nose and give him cuddles when he’s not feeling well.
Happy birthday, Jonah Laton! I can’t wait to see what you do with FOUR!
