Jack Turns 4

Jack turns four years old at exactly 8:49pm tonight.

I can't even believe it.

(Right now he is sitting on the couch next to me, begging me for a tickle, so I will keep this short.)

Four years old just seems... old. So grown up. A kid.

Jack is stronger and healthier than he has ever been. When I take the time to remember, to really think about what it took to get us here, I can't help but be amazed. My prayer is that he will continue to amaze us all.

Tomorrow we are heading off on a birthday trip just for our boy. We are going to spend five days doing all the things that he loves. Other than Instagram and the occasional FB post, I will be pretty silent here. But I wanted to check in before we leave. And I want to thank you. Thank you for being with us through this journey. For your encouragement. For your prayers. For your love. Thank you. And particularly today, thank you for all the calls, texts, emails, and sweet messages left on FB. It made our day.

Happy birthday, buddy. We love you more than you can imagine.

Pin It!

Happy birthday, Jack! I gave birth to 25-week twins back in December, and in those first few weeks, I would follow along with your archives to read about everything you went through (the same stuff, more often than not, that we were also going through). It was so reassuring to read those words and know that there was this amazing little boy out there in the world who started off the same way as my tiny little babies. It made me feel a little less alone :)
