First, I want to apologize for not being able to respond to most of your comments or follow along on your blogs recently. Ever since we called the phone company about our Internet bill (that doubled because all of our promotions have expired) on Monday, our connection has been on and off all day long. I swear, they are running it at 50% because they agreed to lower our bill. So frustrating! I finally caught a good hour, so we'll see if I finish this post but if it's gonna keep going like this, we'll be calling them back again tomorrow...
If four years ago somebody told me that I could love as much as I do right now, I would never believe them. Very pregnant, itchy (you can read a little on why here) and miserable, I wondered how in the world am I going to love this newborn as much as I love my firstborn. But when the doctor put the beautiful bundle of joy into my arms, my heart immediately expanded a couple of inches in diameter... He was perfect. I mean, seriously perfect - no cone-shaped head, no usual baby wrinkles, bright-blue eyes wide open and staring straight into my soul... He was perfection (oh, I'm just sooo bias here...).
Fast forward exactly four years, and today it's my sweet boy's Birthday!!
This picture could not be more ideal to describe this cute and mischievous stinker. Where did the years go??
We had a great day today. No big Birthday parties. Instead we went to the zoo:
Measuring themselves with the "gorillas" :) It was free admission day (more than $50 value for our family of four!). The perfect gift! To top it off the weather was absolutely amazing. 65 degrees...in February, people. But because it wasn't as hot as it is in summer when we usually go (like once a year...), the animals were way more awake and alert. Seriously, just look at this tiger:
The boys had a blast! We spent a couple of hours there, and they definitely ran themselves out :)
We finished with a cake made just for my boy by yours truly... OK, don't judge!:) I'm not a cake decorator but he's addicted to monkeys, so at least I gave it a try. It somewhat resembles a monkey...:
At least he enjoyed it :) The last four years were the best years of my life because I got to spend them with the most amazing three boys ever...
Happy Birthday, my little guy! Thank you for bringing a smile to my face every single day:)
Hey, I actually managed to finish this post. Keeping fingers crossed, our Internet is back for good...
