Deacon is four. Wowza. I can not believe it was four years ago that I first held him and looked at his sweet face and tiny body. This kid is THE best. I spend my day laughing and smiling at the crazy stuff he comes up with.


Some of my favorite things about this boy:


He loves to play outside, our next door neighbor is a little boy Mason who is one year older. Deacon will go outside and yell "Mason! Mason!" over and over again until Mason comes running out of his house and then they play forever. I just peek out the window every so often and see them happily playing.


Deacon is constantly saying to me "is that a deal mom? Is that a deal?" I love it. Makes me laugh every time.


Sometimes he pretends that he is going through a drive through and this is what he orders: "a large diet coke with fresh lime and a chocolate kids cone" hmmmm seems like we have a habit he and I.


Whenever he is hungry he opens the fridge for a string cheese a couple strawberries or a apple. I consistently find a apple with 6 bites out of it every other day or so.


Deacon is not especially cheerful in the morning, sometimes he wakes up in a terrible mood. When this happens I tell him I will not talk to him until he is happy, he then pouts and a minute or so later he says " I am happy now!" and he musters up a fake smile proving his happiness. Pretty funny.


I love the way he says girl: grill. He said to the girls at my work the other day "Hey Grills! Take it easy!"


All of Deacons friends are "his" my Will or my Thomas or my Owen. I think it is so darling.


It is becoming clearer every day how fast time is going, I wish I could stop right now and do the last four year all over again. I try to really love on him every chance I get. Words can not say how I feel about my Deacon. Being his mom is absolutely thrilling. Happy happy birthday Deacon, I am your biggest fan.

Every once in awhile I look at the picture of you and D on his actual birth-day--always brings tears to my eyes. What a happy day, what a wonderful boy, what a great mom you are! Happiness all around. (I also have a picture of Curt that day--the look of happiness on his face is sublime.)

I have so many fond memories of Deacon. I loved how he cuddled the tag lion as a baby and his roly poly arms were the best!
