Halfway to Four

Dear Miles,

Two days ago you reached your half-birthday. That's probably not a big deal in your world, especially because it doesn't include a party, cake and candles, or gifts. Sorry about that. The cool thing is, your half-birthday is one day after Mama's birthday and two days after Daddy's birthday! And then our half-birthdays (although we really don't celebrate those) are the two days before your birthday. Mama likes stuff like that.

It's so hard to believe that you are now closer to being four years old than three. Seriously, kid, would you slow down the growing? You are so big and getting taller all the time. I will have to cry just a little the day I realize you're taller than me.

You're so much fun...from your smiling face to your sense of humor, it just doesn't get old for me. I think I will always be amazed at what you can come up with on your own, the thoughts that go through your mind, the reasoning you share with me about the world around you.

It was so exciting when you figured out your tricycle earlier this year! I love taking you to the park and watching you go on those trails and across the bridges.

But your favorite part about the park? Finding rocks and throwing them in the pond. I have to admit, I never would have thought it could be such a nice way to pass the time.

I know I take a lot of pictures of you, but I'm glad you accommodate me with a smile most of the time. Thank you for that.

Miles, I hope you always reach for everything with as much excitement and passion as you do right now. I love how you teach me to do that as well.

Love, Mama

SUch a sweet post! I still keep up with half-birthdays, too. My mom used to make a half-size cake when my brother and I were younger. It was always so much fun! =) I think she just really, really enjoyed cake.

What a sweet Mama you are. I love this post. I can't believe he is already 3 1/2! I like the previous comment as well...I really like cake, too, and have often made that or cupcakes to celebrate some of Macy's monthly birthdays. lol.

Jen ~ I like the half-cake idea. I might have to start incorporating that on all of our birthdays...and I guess since mine and Casey's half-birthdays are a day apart we can share one cake. : )

Joy ~ Thanks. That's cute that you've made things for Macy's monthly birthdays.
