We blinked and our sweet little Porter General turned four! He was so excited about his birthday this year and remembered all of the things he had been asking for since Christmas.
He woke up to a room filled with balloons and a fireplace stocked with presents. He wanted Paxton to watch him open so we started bright and early before school! He asked for a Ninja Turtle van like Harrison has, Legos, a Pikachu guy and books. He also got a second Lego set, and the characters from Moana.
After we dropped Paxton off at school, we met Gramsy and Aunt Bevynne for a birthday breakfast at IHOP. Porter thinks happy face pancakes are the coolest thing ever and he even got a sundae and the whole staff serenaded him with the Happy Birthday song.
After breakfast, we went to the park to run off some of the sugar and we met Harrison there!
By then, he just wanted to come home and play with all of his new toys, so that's what we did! I built his van and he figured out all of the cool stuff it did.
After we picked up Paxton, Porter asked to play in the tubs of water and since it was his birthday, I had to say yes!
He picked Braum's for dinner because he wanted ice cream instead of cake.
After dinner, I let him stay up a little bit later than his brothers and just run around the yard while Jared and I watched him and talked about what an awesome little guy he is turning into. He is so smart and talks like an adult a lot...but then there are also the times he is a "baby kid" as he calls it. He's so sweet and is happy snuggling almost anytime. He is a great eater but isn't big on trying new vegetables. He is starting to learn to read and has several of his favorite books memorized. He loves all things boy: superheroes and weapons, sports, Ninja Turtles...
I just love that little boy so much!
