Happy 4th Birthday Nathan!

There are only a handful of occasions in life so memorable that you can remember where you were and what you were doing down to the minute even years later. 2:40 am on March 11 will always be one of those times for Gareth and I. At 2:40 on March 11, 2005 we were at home in our little house in Dursley, Gloucestershire with a midwife and a doula and very busy welcoming Nathaniel Christopher into the world. Consider this photo proof positive that he fitted his nickname of Tadpole. I changed it to Tadpole, because Gareth said it was unkind to call him Little Buddha. You'll just have to trust me that when you propped him up he had so many rolls that he looked just like a little statue of the Buddha. He was precious, all 9 lb. 12 oz. of him.

And so, today we celebrate Nathaniel. I can't imagine life without him, and I'm sure Noah wouldn't want to either. They love and fight and play like only brothers can.

Stay tuned for more photos of the best buddies!
