Happy 4th Birthday, Brooks!

Our baby is four years old! We can hardly believe it has been four years since Brooks took us from being a couple to being a family. It seems like yesterday and yet so much has happened since then. Brooks has grown into a smart, affectionate, energetic, opinionated, and beautiful little boy. His baby face allows us the luxury of thinking he is still a baby, but we know he is all little boy!
Brooks’s world is a fantastical imaginary land filled with Superheroes and “Bad guys”, pirates, and knights. He loves to pretend! He also soaks up knowledge as quickly as we teach him and often surprises us by using rather sophisticated language (and using it properly even if he doesn’t say the beginning “s” sound!)
We have celebrated his birthday 3 times this year (living away from home as its advantages in the birthday party department!). Brooks was able to squeeze in a sports themed party with Nana and PawPaw, a pirate party with Mimi and Grandpa, and a Superhero party with his friends. At his party the kids had fun decorating their own Superhero capes and ridding the gameroom of all bad guys!
We know the next year holds many exciting things for Brooks, we can’t wait to see how he grows and changes with each passing day. Enjoy the slide show below highlighting the best pictures from Brooks’s fourth year. The song on the playlist "You're Gonna Be" by Reba is dedicated to Brooks from Mommy.
