birthday boy.





Dear Jude, {aka: jude the dude, the judinator, judy bloom, judie}

Today is your Fourth birthday! You are a man of few words buddy...and tend to shy away from being social (hmmm wonder where you get that from?) . You do however, like talk my ear off in the car when no one else is around. Currently you like to ask a lot of questions and what if's. They include some of the following: 

"What if the world was a wipeout zone?" ... 
"What if i didn't have any hair, would my head get cold?"
"Why is Jupiter the largest planet?" ... 
"Why is it really called a hot dog, mom?"
 and personal favorite " How come sissy has to go to school eeeeeverrrrydaaaaay.?"

I have never ever met a kid like you ... I would truly love to get inside that little head of yours and find out what you are thinking. You march to the beat of your own drum. You sir, are by no means a follower. You do what you want to do even if you are the only one doing it, please don't ever change that. You are fiercely honest. So honest that I warn people when they ask for your opinion, because you will tell them exactly what you think.

You are smart, beyond a doubt smart. You have a fondness of books and golfing. One of your favorite pass times is wrestling with Elisabeth...even when she doesn't want to...but that doesn't stop you...not even for a second you just pile drive her anyway. You adore your stuffed lamb and being outside ... but only if it is "worm" (warm ) .You have a infatuation with Wipeout, counting, blocks, and playing with Lyla's hippo. You consume enough chocolate milk to supply a small village, and when you are tired you go bed...like literally crawl up in your bed and go to sleep...sometimes with out telling anyone.

 
Four is going to be a good year for you,...maybe, just maybe, my favorite age with you yet...we shall see? I think about how fast four years has gone by. I know soon you will be grown and will go out to live the life that God has planned for you...so for now while your all mine ... I am going to soak up your cuteness ... like how your eyes that seem to change colors from blue to sea green depending on what you are wearing,  your sticky hands and chubby little cheeks, the way you mispronounce all your "L" sounds to sound like "W's" ....and your tiny teeth spaced by gaps. Oh how I love those gaps.  

happy birthday, birthday boy! What a little blessing you are. I sure do you love ... you make make heart super happy.

xoxo,
mom
