Eli's 4th Birthday

Posted by Unknown | | Posted On Wednesday, September 9, 2009 at 5:51 PM

Four years ago today I gave birth to a little guy, 5 pounds 14.5 ounces big! Or should I say itty bitty. He arrived a month early because my water broke due to hurricane Ophelia being offshore. I had nothing prepared, no one ready to take care of Hezekiah and it was 11 p.m. at night, a Thursday night! I remember distinctly! (Thank you Mark and Melissa for coming to our rescue!) So, this little guy arrived into the world with these beautiful, I guess I could say handsome light hair with highlights. He was the tiniest little baby, eager to arrive and a cuddle bug right from the start. A sweet, precious, golden buttercup that fit perfectly in my arms and a pumpkin head that rested upon my shoulder. How can it be that you my sweet Li Fly are already 4? You are an intelligent little fellow. By 2 you already knew every letter in the alphabet and while Hezekiah would be at school you asked mommy to write letters and I would randomly and you were able to name them. By 3 you already knew how to write you name. So at four I guess you will start reading! :) You are our easy going, never needing to be the center of attention buddy. You readily share and make peace with the world. You line up your toys in straight little lines, often times I go into your room and either see lines of cars or lines of animals, yesterday you said, "These animals are gonna watch a movie." I love how you talk little man, you say your R's, W's, and L's in such a sweet way and I also love how you cuddle your britches and suck your thumb, even though you are not doing it as much these days. You are 4, my Li Fly!  My Elijah Blain Phelps. I love you and am so thankful that God gave you to me. I pray that as your mommy I will be able to show you how precious you are and that you my buddy are FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE! I love you dimples!
