Gratituesday: The Boy is Four!

Today is Alex's fourth birthday. To say he is excited for his birthday would be an extreme understatement. We had his big birthday celebration on Sunday night, but the fun continues today. His special request for today was donuts from Tim Horton's. for breakfast.
Alex was born five weeks early. He was 6lbs8oz at birth and was perfectly healthy, although he did have to spend an extra day in the hospital because of jaundice.
He was completely spoiled as a baby between Eric, myself, and Isabelle. He was a remarkably easy baby and so we were spoiled too.

He seemed like such a peanut until Olivia was born when he was 10 1/2 months old. Then he seemed to turn into a big boy overnight when compared to Olivia. That earned him the nickname "Chubber Bubber." To this day, he still goes by Bubber.

He's always been a ham who loves to have his picture taken.

Alex is a self-proclaimed "Super-Good Big Guy." He is a daddy's boy and is always trying to fill Eric's shoes. He is getting closer with each passing day.

His personality is very all-or-nothing and he wears his heart on his sleeve. He loves fiercely and laughs loudly. He doesn't do anything in a small way. And he is all boy!

We all just love this little boy to pieces. He makes our family whole. He makes us laugh every day. He can dance like there is no tomorrow. He can scream the roof off our house. He can melt hearts with just a look.

Happy Birthday Bubber!!!! We love you big guy!!!

I am so thankful I am the mama of this amazing boy. To read what others are thankful for this week, make sure you stop by Laura's blog.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
