Happy 4th Birthday, Squish!

My little man is now 4 years old! We had a big birthday bash at our home with lots of out-of-town family and friends to celebrate.

As usual, I wasn’t able to take too many good pictures since I was running around setting out napkins and such. But there were gifts, and there was cake. A very specific Thomas cake. It was a thing.



Squish also shares his birthday with his grandpa, and since everyone lives in the Bay Area now it was an extra-special celebration!

I continue to be amazed at how awesome and special Squish is. I’m sure every parent is just a little bit biased, but Jared has such a sweet and joyful energy about him, and he gets along so well with everyone and everything. Going into his fourth year, his favorites include the color red, playing with his trains and cars, running around the house¬†with Olive, making his little sister laugh, and hamburgers with french fries (as we say around here, “burger on top with fries” where I think “on top” means including a bun).

Happiest of birthdays to my Squish-Monster! I have a feeling that four will be a fantastic year for you.
