Morgan – You’re turning four today and Mom and Dad couldn’t be prouder of the boy you are becoming.

I have so much fun watching you grow up as the youngest brother, and one of the youngest kids in the neighborhood because that’s exactly what I was when I was your age. To compare how you attack a challenge (brave and fearless) to how Owen does (careful and measured) allows me to almost see my own childhood replayed right before my eyes and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. And, while you so desperately want to do everything that your brother does, you are also very much your own person. You have a unique outlook on life and are not consumed with anything material. Rather, you choose to spend your days pursuing happiness, which can take many forms.

This year saw you learn so much. From riding your bike, to developing a love of music, to becoming a little boy that can sit and have a conversation, these years are simply amazing. As I type this, you’re letters and numbers are becoming clearer in your mind every single day. It is amazing to see the world begin to make sense to you and for you to begin to put your unique stamp up on it. Don’t every lose your happy, gentle soul because I’m certain the world is a better place because of you.

Happy Birthday Morgan. Mom, Dad, and Bro-Bro are so very proud that you are four!!

Proof that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. When I asked you who was on the far right of this picture you said “me” (meaning Morgan). In fact, that’s your dad at a similar age. Same eyes, same cheeks, same nose, same lips, same hair. Amazing.
