Happy Birthday to my first-born!!

Wow, I can't believe that I am now the mom of a 4 year old. That seems so strange. 4 years ago on this very date, I gave birth at to a sweet little boy at 7:12am. I remember that moment very well as it was the turning point of our lives. Clayton and I had just become parents and we were a family at last. The saying goes that having a child changes everything and no truer words have ever been spoken. We have had our ups and downs as a family but it is a privilege to have such a special son. Hayden is a wonderful child and we love him very much. It is interesting to see him as he grows up. He is now becoming his own little person with his own thoughts and opinions. I never thought that we would make it through the baby years. I couldn't wait for him to get older so that he could do more things. Man, if I could only turn back the clock. I would go back and hold that baby tightly because I now know those years fade wayyyy too quickly.

Anyway, I didn't intend on getting sappy. I hope that Hayden has a wonderful time tonight at his party. We are going to meet 10 of his friends at Fun Depot. They are going to have pizza and I made some Spiderman cupcakes for them. Hopefully it will be a fun time for all! :)

Pictures will be posted later tonight.
