Griffin is 4.

On July 22, 2014 my big boy turned 4.  He has been talking about his birthday for the better part of a year.  He has been inviting people to his birthday party for about that long.  We were going to have a Firestation birthday.  But a lot has changed this last year so we changed our minds.  G was going on vacay with my fam the week before what would be his party and then they wouldn't be able to come AND we were going to be in town for camp and all together so why not celebrate early and with FAMILY.  Including Ben's grandmother, who we couldn't figure out how to get to Austin.  Anyway, so we celebrated about 4x for this four year old.  Once with Ben's family and Tabo at her home.  The boys were kind of a hit at the nursing home.  Our favorite pizza.  ice cream.  lemonade.  presents.  Then we headed to my parents house and did fireworks, had hot dogs, cheetos, cake, presents and legos.  It was perfect.

Once we had a few weeks for the lego obsession to sink in we decided to have a lego "party" at his school.  We brought pizza and cupcakes.  At home we had cake.  lego candles.  presents.  etc etc.  He was celebrated.  And he is worth celebrating.

He has gotten big.  He has lost his baby face.  He still talks more than any four year old ever.  His vocabulary is ridiculous.  He loves legos.  He still loves trains.  We got him two lego trains.  He brings joy.  Questions.  SO MANY QUESTIONS.  He doesn't nap.  "Not any day ever."  He is over watching tv.  He has made friends at school.  most of them are girls.  He makes paper airplanes.  He loves his bubba.  most of the time.  He loves his mama.  He has a LOT of sass.  He's going to make it big in this world.

Oh, and did I mention the trampoline?  Sweetest of sweet boys.  Best laugher.  Ever.  Compassionate soul.  Generous.  And Sassy.  I could not be more proud of you.
