The Big 4!
Today is Malachi's 4th birthday!! He woke up this morning mesmorized because he told us "now I can reach the sink. Last night I had to use my tippy toes, but this morning I can reach it all by myself!! Because I'm 4!
We had pancakes and had our normal birthday tradition. We go around the table and we all tell the birthday person a few things that we love about them. Then we left and fellowshipped with some friends. We had a birthday lunch of pizza, American brownies, ice cream and "The Jungle Book." We found some legitimate Transformers for him. We had to ask the lady at the store downtown "which ones are the real ones and which are the illegal, fake ones?" She told us the real ones where the real ones were :).
Malachi's not having a party because we're going to celebrate again with some friends next week. We'll be leaving for a few weeks and will be out of pocket, so we decided to postpone a party. He was okay with that, because the girl he has decided he is going to marry will now be able to attend his celebration.
Here's everyone flashing their "4's" in celebration of Malachi. He's really turning into a wonderful young man. He's really curious about life and how things work. He spent most of the night trying to figure out how to manipulate the transformers. He loves to read and run. He loves his sibilings and loves to entertain them. He's got a really sweet spirit that loves to tell us that he loves us, very consistently. Malachi's also got a great dry sense of humor. He's got a sense of adventure and intrigue that I love. We love you, buddy and can't wait to see what this year has in store for you.
