My Little Buddy Turning 4!

My Little Buddy is turning 4 today! I can't believe it! He is getting so big.

A lot has happened in his life this year. We had season passes to Hershey Park this past summer. He went from riding just a couple rides to riding all the kiddie rides. He even tried his first roller coaster, The Trailblazer, but hated it.

In preparation for his baby brother, he got a big-boy room equipped with a loft bed and basketball hoop. And just recently he went from sleeping on the floor under the bed (on his crib mattress) to sleeping on top!

He became a big brother this year. He loves JD so much. In fact he tells JD everyday that he loves him. I love how he interacts with JD. He doesn't do the "baby talk" stuff. He just talks to him like they are the best buds.

He gave up his pacifier this year. We took it and put it inside this teddy bear that he made.

And most recently, he is potty-trained!

I've really enjoyed watching the changes in his life this year. He is not a fan of change, but has handled things pretty well. It was definitely a year of testing. He loves to be silly and make us laugh, which he did many, many times. I am so thankful that God gave him to us. I can't imagine my life without him.
