Number 2 is Turning 4 !!!!!!

I can't believe it has already been four years ago today that our second son, Aidan Scott Finnegan came into this world, eleven days late but "right on time".
He weighed in as our largest baby, 9 lbs. 6 oz and 21 inches long. It's cliche, but oh so true... from the moment I laid eyes on him, I was in love. We all were, Steven, myself and his big brother Cole.
You can't really help but love Aidan. He is one of the sweetest, most sincerely kind kids I think I have ever known. Today when he woke up and realized today was his birthday, the first thing he said to Cole was, "Cole, you can help me open my presents if you want." He melts my heart on a daily basis.
He has an amazing spirit of fun and a true zest for life. He loves to dress up and has such an amazing imagination. In fact tonight, his "invisible" (not imaginary) friends, Jordan and "My Friend that Doesn't Have a Name" will be joining our birthday BBQ. Aidan says, "of course they'll be he-ah (that is Aidan for "here"), they live in our house!"
Aidan is always the first one to tell someone he misses them, or that he is excited to see them. He has no trouble giving someone a hug and a smile and telling them "I love you".
Sometimes, I can't believe just how lucky Steven and I are to have three such amazing boys. The blessings are endless. Happy Birthday, Aidan!!
