Happy Birthday Slaten!

 We were young when we started our family. I was 21, Sweet Husband 25. We had been married 3 years when our world dramatically changed. On this day 4 years ago we welcomed the sweetest little boy into the world. Our Slaten. So this post is to him and the things he enjoys.

Mustangs. You can spot a Mustang a mile away. You know what is it just from hearing the sound and you talk about things like horsepower and pipes even though I'm pretty sure you have no idea what those things mean.

Your favorite color is green.

You love motorcycles and want one of your own, but as a mother I'm terrified to let you walk in your father's footsteps of racing. I couldn't imagine you getting hurt so I'm just going to keep talking you and your father out of this one.

Your favorite movies are Cars, Nightmare before Christmas, and Shrek.

Your new favorite sentence is, "You stink'n nugget."

Your obsessed with anything Army. You know the Army theme song when you hear it and you love to read about anything with military men in it. I hope this is a passing phase too because this is another thing mommy can't handle her little boy doing. Though I will be proud of you no matter what you choose to do.

You are an excellent fisherman. You can cast your own rod and have caught more fish in your 4 little years of life than I have in my 25.

You love to cuddle. You give me kisses all the time. You tell me everyday I'm your best friend. Please never stop this.

Your favorite shows are Spongebob, Icarly, Bubble Guppies, and Power Rangers.

You love pizza and McDonalds. I can't get you to even try a veggie, but you LOVE milk.

You love to swim and you love baths. You're a water bug for sure.

Right now you prefer "Shirts with the sleeves cut out" as you call them.

You have an excellent imagination. You like to pretend your a weatherman, waiter, policeman, daddy, and rock star.

You play a mean air guitar.

We are so proud of the little guy you are becoming and are so thankful to have you in our lives. Happy 4th Birthday sweet boy!!!!
