Happy 4th Birthday Gregory!

Happy 4th Birthday to my sweet Gregory John!!

I can hardly believe how big he is getting, it seems like he is growing right before my eyes and I can't keep up!

Feels like just last week we brought home this handsome brunette from the hospital. Greg was my easiest c-section and recovery. He was such a good baby, from day one slept like a champ and rarely made a fuss. He had a stork bite on each eyelid when he was born and they would turn bright red whenever he got tired. He came with built in signals! Those have long gone away now...along with the dark hair.

And we were left with a go with the flow, mellow blondie boy.This kid is always ready for a fun time and doesn't take attitude from anyone. He likes "cooo-kies." Especially at his favorite place, Grandma's house.

He thinks he is a pretty cool dude, here he is doing his "Rock Star Baby" pirate moves. I did not make this up. Greg makes me laugh every.single.day. He climbs into bed in the middle of every single night to snuggle. I know one night it's just going to stop and I will be happy to have our bed-back but I will miss him. He is so handsome. I think he looks a lot like Dan's Papa did when he was a young man. I know he likes to tease people like Papa used to. Greg likes getting his hair combed, brushing his teeth, getting his shoes and coat on "just so." And leave a drawer or door open? Not this kid. He is artsie like his mommy. We love to spend time doing crafts and making things. He loves music and always asks me to dance with him (swoon!) Making up silly songs is a favorite too. This boy works magic in my life. He comes up and gives me hugs right when I need them. He loves his brother, Graham and asks LuLu everyday "Do you need a kissie?" and smooches her. He has a sensitive soul and is a delight in our family.
God knew I needed Greg in my life as my son and my precious friend.
We love you Greggie John and hope you have a super fun birthday!
XOXO

Happy birthday Greg! Our little boy Greyson is also four! We used to say the same thing when he was a baby that he "came with a built in signal." around his eyes would always get red when he was very tired. Greyson also is particular about things such as toys picked up (usually), order to his day, and yep loves getting his hair combed too! :) this was such a special post about your son, he will treasure it one day! -tara

Happy Birthday to such a sweet boy! I feel like he's come out of his shell so much recently; and I'm glad he's Carsen's little friend! I hope he has a fabulous day (and gets lots of messy presents and clutter for you Kristen!) Good luck this afternoon;)
