One cannot believe that my little buddy is now 4. He has been waiting so patiently for his birthday ever since Anne had hers back in May. We told him over and over, "When we move to Pittsburgh then it will be your turn." Well we are here and he had his turn. We just had a quiet (OK, not so quiet) family party. Andrew didn't really request anything particular this year so we just surprised him a bit. That morning I surprised him at breakfast with his own spider man cell phone. He was quite taken with his cousins and was so so so excited to get his own.
We let Andrew pick out his own cake at the store that day...he was still shocked to see so much chocolate in one place.
When you can't get your child to smile with you, then join them!
