Here is sweet little tiny you in the hospital...look you don't even fill out your diaper

Here is that special moment I will never forget!

Serious sweetness
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SWEET ANGEL BAKER!! Your brothers were so excited to be able to wish you a Happy Birthday today and at 6:45am you were up and we were all in your bedroom singing to you on your bed :)  Can’t believe you are 3 years old. I remember the moment you were born like it was yesterday. I was very nervous b/c you were coming 5 weeks early and I just wanted everything to be ok. The moment you were born Dr. Tu handed you to me and I said “hi Baker” and your big blue eyes looked deeply into mine, that was it… I was madly in love!

You have proven to be the toughest, sweetest little man we know. Your courage and strength continue to amaze us! I do not think there is a person in this world who could meet you and not fall in love with you….look out ladies :) You make my heart melt every day and I could not imagine our family without you.

Every morning when I walk in your room to get you out of bed you greet me with the biggest smile and even if I have to wake you when you are sleeping to go to an appt. you give me the biggest smile. I don’t know many people that are happy to be woken up but you sure don’t seem to mind. I always have to giggle to myself when I walk in your room to get you out of bed and I see little pretzel man Baker b/c you are literally folded in half many times in bed, with your toes all the way over your head and your little smiling face peering through those legs. Our little gumby man.

Thank you for cuddling with me every day and giving me your cute little grunts, your infectious laugh and the brightest smile this world could ever see.

Thank you for lifting my spirits with your gentle soul when I am having a rough day. Thank you for showing me you love me even though you can’t say it or can’t kiss or hug me. I hear it through your giggle and see it through your cute expression when you tilt your head to the side and bring your wrists up towards your chin. Thank you for showing everyone around you that physical abilities do not determine who you are or the character you will become. I have faith you will defy all odds and we will get to celebrate many birthdays with you and you will continue to teach those around you the meaning of love and determination.

Thank you for being the boy you are, your Daddy and your brothers and I all love you so much and we wish you the best birthday ever!!

The boys were so excited to hold you on your Birthday!

And here you are today, on your big day.   Don't mind that Talan looks scared, he just is silly about smiling for the camera
