Today He's 4, Almost A Handful

Today my sweet baby boy turns 4.
It's hard to believe that it has been 4 years since that baby boy entered my life and made me a mom.

I never imagined that tiny baby boy (only 6lbs, 11 oz) would turn into a headstrong, independent, incredibly smart, funny and adorable 4 year old.

Jakah showed up 2 weeks early. Always having to be on his own schedule, not anyone else's. Since then he has been one of the most independent kids I have ever met or seen. Never really wanting to be held. Always trying to do things himself. While some days it's frustrating, I remind myself that someday it will be awesome.

4th Birthday 2014 Actually 1 picture is from yesterday during the Superbowl while our amazing Seahawks won!

He has taught me so many things about being a mom. I can't imagine my life without him!

Love you Jakah! Happy 4th Birthday!


  1. LOL - love the sign bro!
    Awww, looking at these pics makes me so miss the blonde curls my son had when he was a toddler. At 9, he likes his head basically shaved to a millimeter now.
    Happy birthday!

    1. I think he is getting tired of his hair being longer and curly :( I'm trying to ready myself for the day when he wants to cut it all off!
