It’s official, friends! I am a Mama to a four-year-old! I’m still not exactly sure how to feel about that fact, so for now I am just smothering him with kisses & cuddles all day long — knowing all-too-well that my days of doing so are numbered.

In happier news, we went to the Bronx Zoo to celebrate his birthday and we had the best time ever! Seriously, it was so much fun. We had absolutely perfect weather, not too hot, not too cold, not too sunny. This is a true stroke-of-luck here in the Northeast, and we enjoyed every moment.

The Bronx Zoo is one of my favorite places. I’ve been visiting since I was a child myself. The zoo is surrounded by woods, and so many beautiful animals and exhibits. One of my favorite things about the zoo is the incredible work that it does through the Wildlife Conservation Society.

We had such a fun day. There is also a new feature — Zoo Brews — which is an awesome quick-stop for the adults in the group. Craft beer? Wildlife? I mean really…! My babies had fun, but I sure did, too. 😉

After the zoo, the celebrations continued for Roman. I made cupcakes featuring his favorite — blue rock candy — for a little celebration with his preschool class. We also went to the most amazing hibachi place, Mt. Fuji, for dinner where he got to experience the flaming magic of hibachi.

It’s just been such a fun week of celebrating my sweet boy with love and celebration. Multiple times throughout the week he exclaimed, “This is the best birthday ever!” and my little Mama heart just about burst. My cup runneth over.

Happy Birthday, my sweet Roman James. Mama loves you to the moon and back, now and always. xo
