memories of turning four

yesterday we celebrated our sweet parks turning four
it was pretty simple and full of his favorite things 

highlights for his momma: 
"my birthday makes me happy" 
and as i was walking up the stairs last night after everything, he was going to the bathroom downstairs with the door slightly opened and we had a conservation, whispering love and birthday thoughts back and forth- all in whispers:
 "it's your birthday and it's my birthday! 
happy birthday!
 you are four and i am four! i love you, momma...
i love you, my birthday boy."
 and it was something i think i will always remember. i continued up the stairs in awe. 

he requested a paw patrol cake 
so i found a cake topper set ($10.99 on amazon) + he can play with them now
and put them onto a simple white cake
the candles are beeswax (we use this pack for every birthday) and the 'p' (because he loves the letter 'p') is from a local shop in charlotte/in optimist hall called archer paper goods

his face when he saw his cake was just pure, genuine love

my husband, nash and i surprised parks at school for cupcakes 
he always talks about us coming to visit him... and he just loved it. 
+
he really took in his friends and teachers singing to him
a birthday breakfast: cinnamon rolls + fruit + balloon
toy story 4 cupcakes for his friends at school
him.
his tenderness
his joyous spirit
his soulful brown eyes
his warmth
his treasures
him.
after school, we went to a local smoothie shop 
because they are probably his very favorite thing of all. 
and then he got to watch a movie in a 'car fort' i made him on our couch 
we ended the day with dinner at the pizza peel with my husband's family 
and then went home for cake and a few gifts
...
he also got to watch a show on our laptop in mom and dad's bed
it was all pretty simple... but to a four-year-old 
i think it was everything.
seeing your smile all day 
-on your special day-
warmed my heart- so much.
