Hey turkey! Today you turn the big oh-four!
I feel like it was just yesterday we were eating dinner for the last time as a family of three the day before you were born. I went in Monday night on the 25th and you were born Tuesday the 26th right before noon. Exactly 14 months apart to the day from sissy. You came into this world with a full head of black hair and screaming. You have since lost the black hair but you still scream a lot. You are 100 percent boy and love to be loud. You also love to get your sister in trouble. I’m not sure at this point which you like more.
You don’t care if you are dirty. You love to put (tons and tons) of rocks in your pockets. You are really into superheroes right now. You can’t sit still if you had to. You’re sister is your best friend and your biggest rival all in the same breath. You like to scream dramatically whenever yall get into a tiff. You like to drink juice and milk from the carton, although I’m not sure where you picked that up.
You love everything your sister loves and want to destroy it simultaneously. You do.not.stop.talking. Ever at all. The only time you are not talking is when you are sleeping and even then you can’t stay still. You wiggle all over the bed and make sure your feet are in some one’s back at all times.
Your papa and pa are your two favorite people. You love to copy them. You also like to just say their names out loud and when they answer you say “love you” or “nuffin”. You love to snuggle up on both of their laps and watch toons. Pa looks forward to bubby snuggles whenever we are together and you are happy to oblige. You will sit still and munch on a snack and just hang out with the guys.
You are so very smart. You know your colors and letters and love to sing. You will just start singing songs throughout the day. It’s the sweetest thing ever. You love to paint. But I’m not surprised because you love anything messy, like I said. The paint gets on whatever you are painting and yourself in a matter of minutes. I wish I could just give you a paint brush and colors and let you got to town every day. It’s probably one of your all time favorite things to do.
Oh Av, I wish I had the words to convey how much I love you. I just look at you and know you will grow up to be a great man like your daddy. (And Pa and Papa). You have such a fun spirit and gosh you make us laugh. You make momma and daddy so happy turkey! You melt my heart when you tell me “love you” and even when you say “meannn momma”. I could nibble on your cheeks all day long. You are so beautifully and wonderfully made my sweet son. I thank the Lord every single day for you.
I hope you have a great fourth birthday buddy! We sure love you!
