Nathan turned 4 on August 13 (I'm not really sure how that's even possible that my baby is 4 but...) He wanted to go to Build A Bear!
Here are the 3 zookeepers with their chosen animals!
Daddy and the birthday boy! (he was super easy to please- we offered to let him get an outfit or accessory to go with Brownie the Koala, but he opted out- just wanted Brownie!!)
He was in no mood for family pictures either, apparently, but just to prove that we were all there!
His cupcake request was Strawberry cupcakes with umbrellas in them (I have no idea why the umbrellas, but it was easy enough to comply with!)
We are singing to him here- he got so tickled!
blowing out his candles!
Nathan has grown up so much in the past year. He is a rough and tough little boy, but the Lord is really developing a more tender heart in him, which if you have followed this blog for any time at all, you know this is something we have prayed for. He still ADORES his big brother and wants to do everything he does. He is also pretty creative and likes to draw, paint, and color. He is still a huge fan of tractors, airplanes, and monster trucks and loves to build with trio blocks and lincoln logs. He loves to play Memory and do puzzles! Happy Birthday, Nathan James- you are a gift and we adore you!
