how can it be that you are four?
well, you will be tonight at exactly 11:57 pm.
you snuck right in there, right under the wire, just three minutes before your due date.

i looked through the pictures from your first few days and found these.
i cannot, for the life of me, figure out how you've grown so fast!
where has the time gone?

in the delivery room, right after you were born:

your very first visitor, aunt julie:

and of course, your biggest fans, your brother and sister (don't they look so small too?):


i am very disappointed to tell you but the weather is putting a damper on your celebration today.
we had planned a fun day outside but the forecasters warned us that was not a good choice.
next saturday will hopefully be better.

but don't worry little one. today you will still be celebrated!
we will not let the rain ruin today, no sir-ee.
your sister and i are going to make cupcakes with chocolate icing and sprinkles!
i bought a big box of popsicles (your favorite!).
you have lots of presents to unwrap and new toys to play with.
i can't wait to see your face!

today is your day, my little love!
happy birthday ben boy!
