Happy Birthday Mitchell (Sorry it's Late!)

Mitchell turned 4 last week, and I totally forgot to post about it! Sorry, sweet boy!

Mitchell was so tiny when he was born (5 lbs., 12 ozs.). Here he is holding Paul's finger just seconds after he was born.
Our first family Christmas photo. He was one week old. I bought this sweater a few days he was born, just in case he came early. I left the tags on, since he wasn't due for four more weeks. It was huge on him! Glad I had it, though!!!

This photo shows just how tiny he was when he should have been plumping up. We were pretty worried.

This has always made me laugh! Tigger loved Mitchell, and Mitchell still loves Tigger.

First birthday. Mmm, cake!

He tried to get Noah to open his eyes when they first met. He's loved him from the get-go.

Happy Birthday, Big Boy.

Some of Mitchell's favorite things:
  • "Apparently ..."
  • Chocolate
  • Math (he can fill the hours asking "What's 4 + 3? What's 2 + 2?"
  • Chocolate
  • Spelling
  • Chocolate
  • Wii boxing
  • Hot Wheels
  • Chocolate
  • Shrimp
  • Chocolate
  • "Goosebumps" books (he has an extensive collection, and Paul reads them to him every night before bed)

Your kitty is kind of big too lol. Your kids are beautiful. Does it shock you 4 years have gone by? I'm not ready for that.

Tigger, God rest his soul, was a huge kitty. We tried for many years to control his diet with fancy Hills Science Diet low-calorie food, only available at our vet's office for about a month's mortgage payment. He attacked Mitchell during the weekend of Noah's baptism and went to the great beyond to meet his maker, so to speak. He now resides in a ceramic urn in our guest room.

Yes, 4 years just flies by. I can remember the insomnia and insanity that came with Mitchell entering our lives. He came fast and hasn't slowed down since! It's all so amazing - the love, the frustration, the love, the overwhelming sense of not knowing what to do next, the love ...
