This boy is FOUR

Hard to believe four years ago today my life was about to change more than I could ever imagine. Grey brings so much to our family. He will always hold a special place in my heart as my first baby and the one that helped me grow up--fast.

I had him answer some --okay a lot-- of questions. If you aren't family it will bore you. But it made me laugh. He is such a funny little boy.

popcorn. I don't like vegetables. They are gross for me and will make me really sick.

play at Monkey Bizness & Chuck E Cheese

What is the best part about being 4?
Having ice cream and some cake on my birthday (I hope he gets over his stomach bug so he can enjoy it!)

And now since you didn't get enough, some funny things about Grey:

He hates girl singers (except for Gwen Stefani) and always makes me change the station if it is a "girl song." He only wants me to play "boy songs."

In his prayers he ALWAYS says, "And please bless America. We love America. YAY America!" And tells us afterwards if we forget to say it just like that--which is every time.

He loves snuggles and back tickles. He likes when I climb into his "high-bed" and snuggle. Then he comes in our bed in the morning and snuggles while he drinks his milk.

He is obsessed with being a muscle-man and will eat almost anything if I promise it will make him big & strong. That is why he loves the muscle-tees so he can show them off.

Happy Birthday baby boy. You melt my heart! Yeah I'm cheesy like that now.

My favorite was the fact that the hardest thing for him to do is play nicely ;). And he's looks particularly muscular in that muscle shirt. Happy birthday Grey!

YES! Brig (and I) are thrilled with the shout out! I love that he blesses America in his prayers - so freaking cute.
