FOUR

Today my boy turns 4.

My baby is a month away from starting pre-school, where did the time go?

You are so smart and funny, headstrong, and caring. You give the best hugs and kisses and drive me absolutely crazy.

We have come a long way on this little journey of ours. I love you so much.

I can’t wait to see you navigate your way through school, and friendships and becoming a big brother. Watching you grow has been the biggest blessing of my life.

Happy Birthday Ethan Gabriel.

Surprise!

So we made a thing.

I was late and took a test the day before fathers day and it looks like baby Howell will be here in early 2019. We are very excited about this new addition. This round is so different from when I had Ethan. I was so sick! This time I’m tired but otherwise feel fine.
