Four Trips Around the Sun

Dear Q-ster,

Happy Birthday, my big boy!

Your father and I are so proud of you. I treasure your hugs and “I love you’s.” I ‘m tickled at how you’ll feed teething biscuits to your little brother and keep him occupied so that I’m free to get you a second serving of something tasty. You can scribble your name and sound out some words. You like to cartwheel and try standing on your head. I’m amazed at how many Star Wars characters you know in great detail and how you can drum along to Rock Band with style. There’s so much more to say, but I’ll never be finished, so I’ll stop there.

Since we’ve just about tapped out Star Wars-type gifties for a while, we gave you cooking gear today, and you’re having a blast imitating your favorite Food Network chefs. SwingDaddy is a bit envious that your toy set includes a pretty high quality saucier pan (“Hey, we don’t have a saucier yet!” For $14 at IKEA, we found a whole set of beautiful, gender-neutral pots and utensils.

And ok, ok, we did give him some new Star Wars underwear, because it was impossible to pass up such tiny underpants decorated with Obi-wan Kenobi.)

I can’t wait to see you grow, learn, and play this next year and many more! Love,


This also marks my three year blog anniversary. It’s been great getting to know so many wonderful people, you long-time and new blog pals, and keeping in touch with friends and family we don’t get to see nearly enough in real life. Thank you for reading!

I'm a day late, but happy birthday Q-ster! Having a 4-year-old is such fun.

(And IKEA really does have the best toy kitchen stuff.)

And happy birthday to the blog, too! :)

Happy birthday, Q-ster!

And wow, you're brave or your kid is quieter than my girl - I have so far avoided thos metal pans for fear of them becoming cymbals!
