Love, Love Me Do; You Know I Love You

My darling baby boy is four today.


Of course, I'm not allowed to call him my darling baby boy anymore (despite the fact that he is) because he insists he's not a baby.

Which, ::sigh:: I agree - you are not. And that's why I've been bursting in tears all day today. I'm sorry for crying on your birthday.


You're FOUR!

(Yeah, I agree. Holding up four fingers takes quite a bit of concentration. I guess we should have practiced that some more, but I've been in denial.)


You're hella funny, making up jokes (mostly involving poop and butts - we need to work on your jokemaking skills man), keeping everyone in their place and being very particular about things (sorry about passing along the OCD).


You are very excited to be going to preschool in September ("how long till tept-tember mama?") and you are completely obsessed with whales. And elephants. And dinosaurs. And Finding Nemo. And Star Wars. And going to the pool and playing outside and doing all the awesome things that you do.


I love you Darwin. Without you, life wouldn't be complete. Happy Birthday, my sweet Papooshka!

(Sorry for giving you a nickname that means "little penis," it most certainly wasn't intentional).

Happy four, Darwin!

You have a cool kid. :)

My grandmother called me something that sounded like Papooshka, but surely not that. :) I think it was Polish whatever it was...

Happy Birthday big guy!

Happy birthday Dar! You are very handsome. (I was going to say cute, but you're 4 now.)

Good luck getting him to expand his comic repertoire beyond butts and poop. I have a 7-y.o. with me, and he's crooning, "pooooop pooooop" as I write this.

Happy Birthday меньший пенис (that would be little penis in Russian...thought it would be good to keep up the theme!) 4 is going to be a good year...

Happy happy, Darwin :)
You are very handsome and clever. Being four rocks even more than being three!

Happy belated birthday to Darwin! Typical little boy that he is, you are going to have to hide the Captain Underpants books from him if you ever want to work on his poop talk because he would love them. Seriously.

Happy Belated BD little man. Here's a new joke for you that does not involve poop or butts:
Knock Knock.
Who's there?
Shelby.
Shelby Who?
"Shelby Comin' Round the Mountain when she Comes - Yee Haw!"

Happy birthday Darwin!!!

Yeah,Max cut me off at the same age. But he didn't restrict me calling him monkey until this year.

So very late to this party - but happy 4th year nonetheless little man!

(gawd, but he's so freaking adorable!)
