FOUR Years!

It's been four years since we became known as Mama and Daddy around the house. It's been four years since I got to rock my baby for the first time. It's been four years since we dealt with our first explosive diapers and baby food being splattered across the kitchen floor. It's been four years since I realized I would do anything, literally anything, for this little guy of ours. It's been four years since Jeff and I locked eyes over our sleeping son and realized in an instant that our lives would never be the same, life had changed for the better! Four years ago today, we flew with a very brave 8 month old Graham from Seoul to Minneapolis, and what an amazing four years it has been!

Four years ago, I could have never imagined the reality of celebrating Graham's 4th 'Gotcha Day'. Not only are we celebrating with Graham, but his little sidekick Amelia is now with us too, to get in on the fun. We all started our day with sprinkle donuts (the coolest treat ever, according to the Olson kids) and juice. Graham was also more than thrilled with the Super Hero balloon that decorated his chair. Tonight, we'll be seeing the Lion King in 3D and Daddy Jeff will be sneaking Happy Meals into the theater (he's cool like that) just for the occasion. We'll end our night with Graham's dessert of choice-cherry pie. We were more than happy to let Graham make all the choices for the day and thankfully, we're easily able to grant his little 4 year old wishes.

Happy 4th 'Gotcha Day', Graham! We love you forever, and ever, and ever!
