A Letter to Casper on His 4th Birthday

Dear Casper,

You are 4 years old today! The past four years has gone by in a blink of an eye and has been so much fun. It is very hard for me to believe that exactly 4 years ago your dad and I were sitting in a room at Triple hospital anxiously waiting for you. You were born fighting and strong and all of the nurses in the NICU called you a rock star, and you were. You still are my little rock star. You fight for what you want (and, while at times that is frustrating, it is such a great quality for life and I am glad you have it)and you are just so cool and funny, too. I know I tell you all the time that you are getting too big and to stop growing, but honestly, I actually can't wait to see you grow and who you become through the years.

You are 4. And you love Transformers, Legos, and ALL superheros. Your favorite shows are Transformers Rescue Bots and Wild Kratts. Your favorite color is (usually) red. Your favorite meal is either spaghetti or scrambled eggs and bacon, or maybe tacos (you change your mind a lot). You love to make up songs and silly moves.

I love you so much, Casper. The past four years has been awesome and I can't wait to see how much you grow until you are 5.
