This is all because of him.

Today is Grayson's birthday. We will be going to lunch at the cupcake shop in a little bit. We will squeeze this day dry of celebrations.

Four years ago my "attachment parenting" began with the birth of Gray. When I began this blog, he was the baby I was wearing. And that's pretty much how it all started.

(As age 4 has crept up and ducked behind a door, peeking in, making its move, I have noticed a change taking place in Gray. I am whispertyping it here because I don't want him to hear. It's a good change. It has me excited and feeling like humongous prayers are being answered right before my very eyeballs.)

Four is good. Three was hard. Two was a blur.

Four is going to be so good.

  6. Happy Birthday!

    That one sentence sums it up well. My youngest son is a very hard 3 and most days I wish I could flash forward to 4. The other days, I wish I could rewind to 1 or 2.

  20. Happy birthday, Gray! Two and three were HARD years for us. But four? Four was pretty darn great. And five? Is fabulous. Don't let them tell you that it's all downhill from here. It's not. Each age and stage is wonderful as long as you embrace it for what it is.

  21. Yes, three is so hard. Please keep blogging about how wonderful four is. How it is like puffy white clouds of wonderful. I need to know! (And a very happy birthday to your sweet Gray.)

  23. I remember age 4. And it is good. It seems there us a switch that turns them from a crazy toddler to an amazing little person. Enjoy your adorable little man.

  27. I know I don't comment much, but I read every day! And this post... I just had to share that we had the exact same experience. Three was really rough. Really Rough. But four was good. Five was good. Six was rough again. The jury is still out on seven :)

  37. I just can't believe he is 4 already! It's always been my favorite age tho. Where does the time go? My Carter is so much like him at times. Those 3rd born are in a class by themselves.
