Happy 4th Birthday John!

4 years ago today, we welcomed you, John Henry, into the world. What an exciting day it was!

Mommy was scheduled to be induced b/c you were getting to be quite large and I was quite miserable. The night before was kinda a blurr. I don't remember much except that I couldn't sleep b/c I was soooo nervous. That morning, Daddy and I headed off to St. Luke's in The Woodlands around 6:00 am. We were both surprisingly calm! We got into a room right away and by 7:00 I was hooked up to the IV and the potacin drip was started. I tried to sleep but it wasn't happening....just too much excitement! So we waited and waited and waited and around 3:00, we finally started to see some action! I got my epidural and you arrived around 8:00pm.

You weighed 8lbs 7ozs & were 21 3/4 inches long. You didn't have much hair but what you had seemed to be dark so we thought for sure you'd have dark hair like daddy. Grandma, Poppy, Granny & Pop Pop were there right after you arrived to welcome you to the world.

You are now 4 years old and I can't believe how time has flown by!
  • You currently weigh 34lbs
  • I have no idea how tall you are b/c you refuse to let the nurse measure you but you've got very long legs, just like Daddy.
  • When asked what you want to be when you grow up, you reply," a teacher, policeman and a Daddy".
  • You love to go to school and "do work".
  • You know all your letters and numbers
  • You can write your name like a pro
  • Your new favorite food is quesadillas.
  • You have a major sweet tooth.
  • Your favorite color is pink.
  • You have to read a book before bedtime.
  • You love to play outside anytime you can.
  • You have the sweetest spirit
Today is a very special day for Daddy and I b/c our lives were forever changed for the better. You make us complete and we thank God every day for blessing us with you.  

Happy Birthday sweet baby!
