tucker man. we continue to burst at the seams each day with the laughter that you bring. you really do keep us rolling. you are just the cutest thing and have so much life in you.
you are bright. your mind is constantly working and we hear all about it. along with your mind always working, your body is ALWAYS moving. you are so very physical. you like to be as close to us as physically possible. (right now you are curled up to me in the crook of my leg while occasionally snuggling in a little closer and kissing me on my cheek). you love kisses, bear hugs, crashing, flipping, running, digging, wiggling. anything that requires movement!
you still hum while you eat which is simply just one of your endearing qualities. you love to sing and have been known to dance while no one or everyone is watching. your prayers are precious and i hear you talk to God throughout your day. what an example you are to mommy.
we call you hawk eye because you can see ANY living creature from anywhere and identify it in seconds. if you don't get it exactly right, you get pretty darn close. you know the names of each bird that frequents our feeders. you have overturned every rock, pot, or brick that you can get your hands on and bring me handfuls of slugs and worms and snails and frogs each and every day.
what you see is what you get with you. there are no facades. you are 100% at all times whether that's good or not so good. your laugh is genuine and you pout like a pro.
you always have dirt under your fingernails and toenails. it's permanent i think. you prefer to wear no underwear and drop your pants ANYWHERE to use the potty. you always keep life interesting.
we can find you carrying a bug house, a gun, or a bow and arrow. adventure is constantly around every turn for you.
you are not the least bit shy. you make friends wherever you go.
you trust and follow grey but mostly you march to the beat of your own drum. you are tender and loving towards will and he looks up to you more than you know. you are smack in the middle of your brothers but God planned it that way and we can see so clearly why.
you love love love your daddy. it may be that you are still a lot like your mommy and we need someone just like daddy. oh man do we need him. you want to be just like him and you tell me that all the time.
your lifelong aspirations are set high. you want to grow up to be big like daddy and preach. but on the side you would like to be a worker that builds tree houses.
you have grown so much from three to four. i have sure enjoyed this year with you watching you front and center. we are so privileged to guide you in these years praying for your heart.
we love recalling things about you at the end of every day. you bring us so much joy that we never imagined. the Lord has so many great things in store for your life. happy four years young man.
