As it absolutely cannot be 4 years ago, nearly to the minute (as I typed this post), that the Little Guy arrived in this world. Mind you, according to him, it's his birthday every time he celebrates. Therefore, Friday was his birthday (party at school), today was another birthday (a fete courtesy of the Salty Dogs) and tomorrow we will celebrate again with a trip out of town.
Since all 3 kids and Peter have the day off, we decided we will spend the day in Baltimore. We'll see as much in the Maryland Science Center as we can and enjoy an early birthday dinner in Little Italy. We thought about the aquarium, but as Kelsey put it so succinctly, "Nick needs a place where he can run around. At the aquarium, you just look at things, while at the science center, you can DO things."
We all know Nick never slows down. Well, he does have moments of calm, but they are surrounded by hours of action and to say this makes him a bit different from his sisters would be an understatement.
It is a welcome difference, though. From his blond hair and blue eyes to his need for so much activity, it has been a wonder watching him grow, interact with his sisters and enjoy life the way that he does. And while I am a bit sad that it seems he is changing so quickly, it is so amazing to witness and I really can't wait to see what the next year brings.
Happy 4th Birthday, Little Guy! We love you!
