Happy Birthday Matey

It's your day, S.Rube. The one you've been waiting for for 364 days. I can't wait to see your eyes sparkle in the morning when you wake up and realize that today you are finally 4.

4. I can't believe you're 4. It's so cliche to talk about how fast it all goes by, but, fuck, it goes by fast. And I'm here with you enjoying every last second.
There is nobody that I'd rather spend my days with, S.Rube. I never ever tire of you.

You are gentle and kind and funny and creative and independent and caring and thoughtful and helpful and intelligent and beautiful and so wonderfully positive. You see the sunshine in every cloudy day.

You ARE the sunshine in every cloudy day.

I love you so so so much and am grateful for every single minute I have you in my life.
Happy Birthday, pink pirate. Happy 4th Birthday!

oh my god, Jo...I'm a little amongst yourself. I remember the drive to get you and then to get you to the hospital...even back then we were a little T&L!
