Happy birthday, my baby boy

November 29, 2010

Raleigh turned 4 today. 1 year shy of 5, and I can’t believe it. He has grown us so much.

I remember when I was way too pregnant with him and had a bad haircut at the same time.


I remember when we first noticed he’d be a thumb-sucker.


And I definitely remember the 18 hours of labor that led to him being born.


Such a difference between then and now. How is that physically possible? To go from a squirmy needy infant to a self-dependent, confident, little boy who loves trains and drawing and people.

Raleigh got to enjoy his homemade cake (Dad made it for him)…


And then he got to open his cards…


And then he got to show off his cards…


And then he got to open his present from Mom and Dad. He just happens to be sleeping in this present as I type this. It is a tent with a tunnel that conveniently fits on top of his bed. 🙂


Happy happy birthday, Raleigh. I can’t wait to celebrate the rest with you.
