How did it happen?

Four years ago......

At 10:01 pm we welcomed Junior (who's not really a Junior, but what my friend called my tummy since we refused to find out the sex) to the world at a whopping 10 lbs 1 oz.

If he had been born October 1st, then I would have had to play the lottery that day.

Gunner arrived home less than 48 hours before he arrived for his R&R from Iraq.

Amazingly, he has survived being dressed as a girl, used as a live doll, playing with barbies, having his hair done, and being used as a model for Em's sewing creations.

He's all boy though.

Obsessed with cowboys, dirty jobs, Diego, and Avatar.
He's opinionated. Still not 100% potty trained (but I am thinking of sending him to The Mrs. for that).  

Loves cars, dinosaurs, and being naked.  (Probably the being naked part because it will make his sisters scream)
Even at 4 he has dreams, or maybe he is just plotting against us.

Where did the time go?

Happy Birthday little guy, we can't imagine life without you!

Thank you for your kind words to us.
Happy Birthday to your little guy - we share the same day!

As always, millions of thanks to you and Gunner as you BOTH serve our country with your hearts and lives. We do appreciate it, and we are filled with respect for our men & women in uniform (and their families). God bless you!

Happy Birthday, Gunner! He is adorable! He sounds so much like my 3 year old!! IN fact, he saw the picture of him in his cowboy boots and said, Mommy he has cowboy boots like me!!

He is so cute!

My oldest didn't get the potty thing until he was 4 too. Some boys just take forever I think.
