My first boy. My Sebastian. You turned 4 today.
I can honestly say that I have thanked God for you almost every day for the last 4 years. I will probably remind you every year for the rest of your life how we hoped and prayed for you. How your sister prayed to God almost every night for two years straight for a little brother. How when I was finally pregnant with you, she switched her prayers to asking for a sister, but we are all so glad that God heard the brother prayers and answered those.
Sebastian, I am not sure I was thanking God for you when you were in my tummy making me SO SO sick…but for the past 4 years….I thank God for you…every day. I had no idea I wanted a boy until I met you. I had no idea how much joy, laughter, fun, unity, and love you would bring into our family.
You have a joy for life that is unparalleled. You see joy in almost anything. You love fun. You love going anywhere. You love people. You love animals. You love swim lessons. You love water (except washing your hair).
You love to dance.
You love school and your teacher.
Just this last month you have started to LOVE cars.
You love cooking and making up the strangest food combinations.
You love your dad also love and going pretty much anywhere with him.
You have a love for your older sister that makes her world go around and warms our hearts. You tell me that you love her the most….of all the people…you love your sister best.
Today as I was driving you to school I told you that I am glad you love school, but that I will miss you while you were there. You responded, “Mom, I love school…..But don’t worry, I love you too.”
I love your love Sebastian. I love you. The last 4 years have been a blessing beyond what words can express. We are so thankful for you. We can’t wait to see the boy and the man you will be. We love you Sebastian Victor. Happy 4th Birthday!!
