Four Years Ago Today My Life Was Forever Changed

Today my little guy turns 4. It's so hard to believe that 4 years of his life have already went by. Ruben Mateo means "Behold a son, a gift from God" and that is truly what he has been. He has taught me so very much and continues to teach me more everyday. He has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met and is also the funniest little guy I know. So many times when I am trying to be serious and discipline him he will crack me up and I will not be able to keep a straight face. He has made the last four years so much better and so much brighter than I ever imagined they could be. He has taught me to relax and just have fun and enjoy the moments of my life. Every night I ask him how I got so lucky to get him as my little boy and he just smiles and says "because God gave me to you." Yes, God did give him to me and tonight I thank you God for entrusting such a gift to me. I thank God everyday that I am his mom.

Here are some pictures I took today. His party is not until Sat. but I got camera happy today. When I was downloading the pictures I saw that I had taken 110 today. I guess I was trying to capture every moment of today.
I will post more later. :)
