My firstborn baby, Calvin will be 4 on the 21st of September. (Tomorrow!) I fall more in love with the person he is becoming each and everyday. He is 4, going on 24, and he makes sure everyone knows he is around. He is a perfect blend of both Nick and myself. His good looks and intelligence come from Daddy and his A-type personality and out-going spirit come from me. My favorite thing that he does lately is talking to our baby in my tummy and also praying for people. He is so curious about the world around him and genuinely loves people and relationships. In such a digital age it amazes me that he still values getting to know others more than anything else.
We went to Disneyland's California Adventure for his birthday with his cousins and my family and everyone had a blast! We stayed at a hotel (probably his favorite part, we could have stayed at the hotel the whole time and he would have had the best birthday ever) and also spent another day in Del Mar with his cousins playing in the pool, going to dinner, and having his favorite cake (strawberry cake from Thyme in the Ranch). This was our version of a birthday party for him since it included some of his favorite people. Unfortunately, he still remembers his birthday last year and keeps asking me what day his friends are coming over and how many balloons will be at our house. He is going to learn quickly that each year is not the same, despite his awesome memory. On his actual birthday we will keep things simple (some balloons, cake, dinner of his choice, etc.) and I am hoping he forgets that we are not having a huge party, fingers crossed.
We love this boy so much and it is hard to remember him every being a little baby. I know once this next baby arrives he will be such a big helper. He truly is one of a kind and I couldn't me more proud to be his mommy.
