My Handsome 4 Year Old

Toady is my son Judah’s 4th birthday. As everyone always says, “the days are long, but the years go fast”, and so it is, probably the truest statement I have ever realized in my life.

We got to spend the weekend in Seattle with our family, and were lucky enough to do just what Judah asked to do. Have a dinosaur pool party in a hotel. I loved it! So we did. We swam, we shopped, ate snacks in the hotel bed and stayed up way too late and we laughed and laughed.

The one thing I wanted to share with you was the incredible cake my Mum made for Judah.


She is the best baker and cake decorator I know and every year for his birthday I ask her to make one for him. Because I am useless at stuff like that and I don’t even pretend to try. He was pretty specific this year for what he wanted, and she delivered in a big way. It was massive, it had scary dinosaurs on it and a scary volcano where the sparklers went into.


Impressive was an understatement. Judah was more than pleased and it sort of ‘made the party’. Look at that! Isn’t it great?


We swam, we ate, and then we ate even more, sitting by the pool in our bathing suits. There’s a picture for you. Who doesn’t like to sit in a bathing suit and eat cake right? Ha!


4 years ago a tiny little 6 pound, 13 oz baby boy was laid on my chest and I cried with thankfulness at the beautiful creation that was given to me and my husband. He was perfect. We did not find out the gender of baby before delivery so he was a surprise to us in every way.  However when he was given to me I looked at him and knew him. He was a part of me that was so new, yet so totally familiar and that instant love that other people tell you about hit me so hard. It was overwhelming. I remember that exact moment and will never forget how I felt.


Judah, you are so funny. You make us laugh every single day. I appreciate your good sense of humor. It will get you far in life and help you overcome hard times with a positive attitude.


You are helpful. There is never a time where we need to ask you to do something or help us. You offer your help on your own with a kind heart and a genuine willingness. You have a servants heart and it’s beautiful.


You are so generous. I can’t even remember all of the times you have asked me or Daddy to take you shopping because you wanted to buy a present for a family member or friend, with your own money, because you enjoy giving. A generous and giving spirit is a quality that will serve you well as you grow and one day have a family of your own.


And as much as I could go on all day long about the wonderful things about you, the last one I will note is your loving heart. You have a huge heart for the people you love, and you tell them so. Telling somebody you love them is like a gift. Never stop doing this and letting your feelings for people show.

Judah, you are the most beautiful 4 year old boy I have ever met in my life. Inside and out. Mama is so incredibly proud of who you have become and I know that who you will become one day, will be great. I am your biggest fan and supporter. You will always have my heart.

Happy Birthday Honey Bear. Mama loves you thiiiiiiiiisssss much!
