Happy FOUR YEARS Buddy Bucks!

Exactly four years ago today, at 10:02 a.m. in a tiny room of Womack Army Medical Center in Fayetteville North Carolina, Cade Matthew Alaniz made his grand entrance into the world!

And today, 4 years later he continues to make a GRAND entrance wherever he goes...

Cade Matthew, you changed my life forever when you took that first breath and since that day, I have experienced many moments with you that have taken MY breath away!!! So many firsts and so many firsts yet to come. You will always be special because YOU made me a mother. Today, at 4 years you are spirited, athletic, curious, constructive, opinionated, creative, surprising, and always, always, always unpredictable! A little boy who loves his books, trains, CARS vehicles, painting, and cooking, attempting to spell words, read words, and write your name with a letter C only, you could play soccer, football, baseball, and golf all day long in the yard, you admire your daddy to no avail and love to hear your mommy's laugh, and see your sister's gummy smile. You hold a special place in our family and in our hearts. Happy Birthday sweet boy, I love you always...Mommy
