We have a 4 year old

Eli just a couple of weeks old!!

Can you believe that this beautiful baby is now four years old. It seems just like yesterday that he was born. We had his birthday party along with his cousin, McKenzie's 5th birthday, at Monkey Joe's yesterday. The kids had a blast and then we had family over for dinner afterwords. It was an exhausting day but Eli really enjoyed himself. If anything it made me realize how independent he is. He really didn't need me around for anything, opening presents, eating, playing, etc. He was happy as long as he was playing with his friends. It is very exciting but for a mom also a little sad. He also moved up to a full bed so that the twins could have his bed and he loves it. He just keeps on growing.

Right now he is really enjoying gymnastics and learning all that he can. He has all of his letters down and can count pretty high (depending on the day). I can't believe that in a year and a half he will be going off to school. He is really enjoying all types of board games as well. Every night once the twins are down we have game time where he gets to play one of his games/puzzles. He lives for these moments. It is also a nice time to have one on one with him. Below are some pictures of the birthday party. Happy Birthday big boy!!
