Little Guy Turns Four!

My baby boy turned four-years-old today.

He is so sweet.  And so cuddly.

He didn't start talking hardly at all until a year ago at age 3.  So I've only had the chance to have talks with him for a year.  I'm not sure why, I was worried for a little bit that something wasn't right, but I guess being third-born means having older siblings to talk for you?  Just the other day he was in trouble, and he asked, "Mommy, could I earn my privileges back?"  My heart smiled.  We've come a long way when it comes to being able to use his words! :)

Out of the three "older" kids, he is the one who shares the best.  I wonder where that comes from.  Even though the others are encouraged to share, I can see when they are sometimes stingy.  Gabriel seems to just have more of a giving spirit.  I love that about him.

Oh, he has his  ornery moments.  But this mama has been through the ornery-little-boy thing before.  Gabriel can thank his big brother Caleb for preparing me for that!  For some reason...most of the time (maybe not all of the time) I can handle his difficult moments better than I could with my first-born.

Happy birthday, buddy.  I love you so much.

Can't believe he is 4! That is how old Caleb and Alli should be, right?! ;) Happy B-day!
