Happy 4th Birthday Eli!

My sweet baby boy is 4 years old today! It doesn't matter how old he gets, he will ALWAYS be my baby! :-) I cannot believe that he is 4. Each of his birthdays are just so surprising because he is the oldest. It is crazy to think that I have a 4 year old. What is even crazier is that it seems like he was just born yesterday. How did that tiny (well 8lbs 3oz) little baby boy is so big. He is such an amazing little boy too. We definitely have our trying moments but he is such a sweet boy! It is so fun to see the little boy that he is becoming. He is into anything sports, cars,and super heroes. I don't think you can get more boy than that. :-) I think Mike was just as excited about Eli's birthday as Eli was. Eli is really getting into some of the same toys that Mike had growing up so Mike was exciting to give some of these gifts to him. I am so glad that we were able to make his 4th birthday special!

Happy 4th Birthday Elijah Kent!

Eli's 4th Birthday Party

Today was Eli's 4th birthday Party and it was a GREAT day! It couldn't have gone better for our big boy! I can't believe he is going to be 4 in 2 days. 4 years old, preschool in the fall, kindergarten in the not so distant future. This mama isn't ready for all that big kid stuff.

Ever since Halloween Eli has been set on having a spiderman birthday party and it turned out perfect! It was a wonderful party full of our wonderful family! I love seeing all the cousins running around and playing together. We are truly blessed!
