Happy Birthday To My Guys

Four years ago today God graced me with the most amazing gift - my sweet Trace. 

Trace was born on his Daddy's birthday - Thomas couldn't have received a more precious gift.  I remember seeing Trace for the first time, seeing his Daddy beaming with excitement that morning as he held his boy for the first time. 

He was so excited he tried to run out of the OR with Trace to show him off to his big sister and grandparents.  It was pretty funny!  Daddy escorted Trace to the nursery in his little box, but not without a stop to meet his big sister and some very excited grandparents first.  I remember thinking how perfect he was, he still is.

He's grown up so much this year.  He no longer has that baby look, he's turning into a little man.  If it were up to me he would still be a newborn.  It makes me sad, but I know it's inevitable, he has to grow up.  In these past four years Trace has taught me more than I could ever imagine.  He has taught me to live life in an entire different way, a better way.  I cherish every moment I have with my sweet boy.  We are truly blessed God picked us to be Trace's parents. 

Trace celebrated his #4 at Chuck E Cheese's last weekend with family & friends.  He had a great time dropping hundreds of coins in the games and pushing buttons - the child LOVES pushing buttons! 

He wasn't scared of the big mouse this time, I was impressed with his bravery as he gave CEC a high five and smiled.  I mean if you ask me, that big mouse is quite scary looking.   

We will celebrate Daddy's birthday this weekend, and of course Trace's again too.  Thomas joked he would never have another birthday after Trace was born, but we haven't forgotten about him yet.  I'm so lucky to have him as a husband, a father to my children, and best friend.  He has made some big sacrifices for our family and we are so appreciative of him for that.  He only wants the best for us and will do everything in his power to make it happen.  I love you babe, you are the greatest!

Happy Birthday to my two favorite guys in the world!!  What a happy heart I have today!
Hope, Love, Courage &Faith,
