Saturday was Baker’s 4th Birthday! It is so hard to believe he is 4, he just seems like my baby yet and 4 sounds so old.

We had a great day together as a family. Right away in the morning we started off with giving Baker his gifts. Deegan was happy to help him open and Baker was very excited for the process and for his fun surprises. We of course had to fit in a family 4-wheeler ride too…all 6 of us on one 4-wheeler :) What a site, but one of Baker’s favorite things. I also had to go to Bellingham to get a friend a baby present and I took Baker with and let him pick out a couple new books; oh and he talked me into a couple other fun little things for him too. He is such a sweet talker I couldn’t resist :)

Yesterday we had family over for a Birthday party. I wanted to make Baker a special cake even though he isn’t able to actually eat it. He loves cars, trucks and trains so I made him a pick up truck cake. I am so far from being gifted with any sort of crafty/artsy ability so this was the best I could do. He looked excited by it and we gave him a piece of cake and he did a great job of squishing it between his fingers. He even brought a big handful up to his mouth – oh how we wish you knew how and could safely chew and swallow! He got a taste of some frosting though and we also put a bunch of whip cream on his tray while we were all eating so he could play around with that and have a taste of something.

Baker you continue to light up all of our lives. At some point pretty much every day I seem to get stressed out and all it takes is a moment with you and you can calm me down and bring me peace. You are the happiest, sweetest child in the world. You want so much to be a part of everything that is going on around you and it saddens us that at times you are wanting to do more then you are physically able. Despite that you giggle and wiggle your heart out and everyone around you loves every second we get with you.

I often think of this cute little poem when I play with you – Precious and priceless, so loveable too; the world’s sweetest miracle baby is you!! Then I just ran across this and thought it was something you would like to tell people: Blessed are those who stop and listen to my chatter. You may not understand me; but I love when people talk to me, for I long for companionship, too.

Praying for many more Birthday’s with you Baker!! We love you more then you could ever comprehend!!

He is excited about the cake :)

Hmmm, I am going to squish this

He wants to eat it so bad

See he got a little taste of the frosting.  I just had to pull a couple small pieces of cake out of his mouth but he stayed safe and had fun!
