I still can't believe I have a four year old! I know people hear parents say that all the time..."I can't believe I have a ___ year old." Well, it's different when you are the parent. You can't believe your baby isn't a baby anymore :)
We ended up having a bunch of little parties for him this year. My parents had a little party for him, my MIL had one at her house, and we had cupcakes for him on his actual birthday.
This was the first year, he didn't want a Thomas & Friends birthday. I know shocking. He still likesThomas, but he's obsessed likes Cars more.
I took him out for a few birthday pictures. I asked him where he wanted his pictures taken and what he wanted to wear. He ended up wanting to go to his favorite park and wearing his new clothes he got for his birthday, despite it being too hot out.
Not the location I would have chosen, but I'm sure I'll never forget these photos. Something about them just sums up what I would picture a 4 yr old requesting ;)
