Happy 4th Birthday, little Miracle!

Matthew,

It’s hard to believe that you are four years old today!

Yet, at the same time, it seems like a lifetime ago that you were born – so fragile and so sick, to parents who were so scared for you.

You have blessed us more than I can say in the last 4 years.  You have surprised us, challenged us, and entertained us.  You have the sweetest, most loving personality I have ever seen, and your concern for others is far beyond your years.  You have taught us more about love than you’ll ever know.

You are stubborn, and you are determined, but these traits suit you and will serve you well.

You are adorable, and attract attention everywhere we go.  You either stubbornly refuse to talk to strangers, or you smile, wave, and say “Hello, how are you?” to everyone!  (It sounds like only two words when you say it, though:  “Hewwo.  ow-are-oo?”)  You can recognize letters and say them, you are getting so much better at expressing yourself verbally, you love to sit at the end of our driveway and wave at the cars and trucks that go by.  You say, “Hi, black car!  Bye, black car!” and correctly identify the colors every time.

We are so proud of you.

(We are especially proud that you learned to use the potty this week.  🙂 )

We love you so much,

Mommy & Daddy

  1. Happy birthday, Matthew! You are such a big boy now!! And there are so many people in this big world who love you very much and are very proud of how much progress you’re making and how awesome you’re doing!

  2. Happy birthday Matthew! I didn’t realize his birthday was Beckett’s due date! We wrote letters to him on balloons and released them to ‘heaven’ to celebrate his short life…

    So glad he is potty training for you, such an accomplishment!

    Thinking of you often… Michelle
