Our baby boy has made four trips around the sun. That's quite a distance to travel. He's still tall, often mistaken for older than he is. His playful behavior gives his true age away. Although, in many ways he is beyond his years. His speech is excellent, when he decides to use his words. He's curious and inquisitive. He fills silence with question after question – many that we can't answer.
He loves to draw, paint, color, create. He tells us he makes money by selling his pictures. He also loves to run, jump, throw, catch, kick, bat. We spend evenings in the yard playing baseball and soccer. And, yes, he still loves trains.
He can be sweet and kind and he gives great hugs (he gets that from his daddy, I'm sure). He can be stubborn and particular (maybe from his daddy, too? :)) As SouleMama said, "The days can be long, the years most certainly short. Hold them close and love them." We certainly will.
Happy birthday, Walter! We love you!
