The Baby is Four!
It's not anyone's first choice to wake up on their birthday feeling puny, but on the other hand; laying around watching your favorite movies and eating your favorite foods does make for a good way to spend your day.
Even with feeling rough, Washington was all about his birthday interview. He wanted to make sure he got to answer his birthday questions and then semi-obliged me with some pictures to document this fourth birthday.
So without further adieu...

Dear Washington, what a treasure and a joy you are to our family! From the first moment we knew of your existence, to this very afternoon, you have been leaving smiles on our faces and pounding of our hearts. You are mischievous and a risk taker. You are loud and you are cuddly. You sing at the top of your lungs and love sneaking snacks from the pantry. You smile so big your eyes disappear into crescent moons and make anyone around melt into helpless puddles. You love superheroes, homemade bread, mud puddles, and jumping off high things. You love adventure and testing the boundaries, you love wearing Nike clothes because you love the "swoosh". Your siblings all still call you "Baby" and treat you like it and you don't mind in the least, for now.
You love God and talking about how He protects you and has a plan for you; you love reminding us by saying, "God's plan!" And I love that it was God's plan to create you into our family. We are smitten by you, proud of you, and in love with you.
Happy 4th birthday Washington Clark! We love you!
