Happy 4th Birthday Grady Tucker!

My Grady Tucker is 4 years old today! Where oh where has all the time gone?? :) My funny Grady woke up at the crack of dawn this morning all excited that today was his birthday. He can't wait to take his cupcakes to school today and then go out for ice cream afterwards!

Grady was born May 21, 2008! We welcomed in our little 7 pound 9 ounce baby boy with such love and joy!

What joy it was to hear this precious little cry! I had a C-section with Grady too and I remember being soo nervous. All I wanted to hear was him cry. Now all I want is peace and quiet :). Just kidding! (maybe not)

Doesn't Graham look soo little here?

This was Graham's first time to see Grady. Sadly it was in the NICU. He had a few problems clearing his lungs and when they went to start an IV on him they had a really hard time. He ended up with an umbilical line which they considered to be a procedure that had him stay a little longer in the NICU than normal. On the 4th day we were able to bring him to my room and then later that day he came home with us! He has been our biggest and healthiest baby since!

Graham holding Grady for the first time. Don't they look so cute together! I have to remember the sweet moments like this because now all they do is fight. HA! :)

A very sleepy Daddy with his 2 boys!

This is one of my favorite pictures of them together! I have it framed and in my bathroom so I can look at it as much as I want!

I can't believe how fast the past 4 years have gone by! Here are some from past birthdays! Grady's first birthday was at the pool at my in-laws neighborhood. We went swimming and all had the greatest time!

Grady's 1st Birthday . Look at all that crazy hair!

Our cake eating MONSTER!
For Grady's 2nd Birthday we had a party at our house! We did an "under the sea" theme and rented a jumpy castle for the back yard. We had tons of food, family, and fun. It was a great day!
Grady's 2nd Birthday. It was such a crazy fun day that this is the closest thing to a family picture that we got :).

For Grady's 3rd Birthday we did a party at our house again (but at our new house). Don't kill me, but I don't have the pictures for it (not just yet anyway). I had just had my cerclage placed and was on bed rest. My awesome SIL Melanie took tons of pictures for me that day and now I can't find the disk. :/ I swear I saw Grady wandering around with it the other day asking me what it was (I'm pretty sure it was one of those disks that have the miniature pictures printed on top of the disk so you can tell what's on it). Once I find it, I'll add it to this post. In the mean time, here are some other fun pictures of my middle man from the past year :).

There is just nothing better than eating an icee and being pushed around in your stroller!

Making sure that Crash has water...

And who could forget the time that he broke his bed!

My darling Grady,

Daddy and I are so blessed to have you as our middle child, our second son, our silly boy. We love you more than words can express! You brighten each and everyday with your laughter and you keep us on our toes with your shining spirit. I love how sweet and funny you can be. Your sense of humor makes you the family clown and we love you for it! We thank God everyday for letting us have you to be our son. We love you with all our hearts, all our souls, and all our beans :).
Love you always,

Momma and Daddy
