Dear Reese ...

It's your favorite Aunt here ... Aunt Lindsey, of course.  I cannot believe you turned 4-years-old on Saturday!  From the moment you were born, I've loved you more than I knew was possible.   Here I am holding you for the first time.  You were the most beautiful, perfect baby I had ever laid eyes on.

I never knew when you were growing in your Mommy's belly that you would be the best thing that's ever happened to me. You were the happiest baby, always giggling and showing off your big blue eyes and presh dimples.  You totally should have been a Gerber baby and made your Aunt rich.  
You didn't like to sleep through the night though, which reminded me I was not ready for babies until at least I was 35. As time often does, it flew by.  Before we knew it, you were celebrating your 1st birthday in style as a pirate ...  Arghhhhh!

Then your 2nd ...

Your 3rd ...

And on Sunday, we celebrated your fourth at Chuck E Cheese aka your heaven. You were the most handsome little spidey we'd ever seen.  You played some football:

Played games with Daddy:

And Mommy lifted you up for all to see during your birthday song. 

You got really excited when your cake came out.  I know everyone really appreciated you licking it.   
Happy 4th Birthday to the the smartest, funniest, cutest and most perfect little boy!  Aunt Lindsey does have a heart, see?
