Four years ago today, The Pip was born. That's hard to believe, in both directions at different times. There are days when it seems like just yesterday that he was a tiny helpless thing, and other days when he seems to have been a hyper Little Dude for aeons.
I took a bunch of pictures of him today, but it's sort of hard to choose one for the photo of the day. I went with this one as the "featured image" above:
because it's a good clear picture of him, and a fairly characteristic facial expression. Also, he's holding a big collection of superhero stories, showcasing his current obsession.
But, on the other hand, this one is in some ways even more characteristic:
as it shows him pretending to be a superhero at SoccerTots this morning, running and giggling. This is probably a more common state for him-- he's in nearly constant motion.
Anyway, happy birthday to my favorite Little Dude. It's been four fun years, with lots more fun to come, I'm sure.
