Warning: This may be a picture overload as my 4 year old is adorable!

Seriously, Edward is adorable!
He loves life.
Edward is cantankerous, to say the least.
He loves preschool and playing with his friend Sapphire.
Edward is extremely kind to his brother, Nolen, and really seems to take the "big brother" role to heart.
He learned to swim this summer and loves to get in water any chance he gets.
He will eat any food from salmon to tacos to sushi.
Edward is an absolute joy to be around.  His attitude has changed tremendously in the last year.
Edward still loves Hot Wheels the most; however, he is starting to love Planes the Disney movie and can sometimes be seen playing with Thomas the Train.
Edward has started praying and wants to learn more about God.
He has started reading and can read three chapters in the "Dick and Jane" book.
Most of all, Edward is genuine.  He allows himself to feel every emotion and does not hold back in telling someone exactly how he feels.  He will tell you if you are wrong or right. Edward has a huge heart and tells me each night, "I love you, too, Mom". 
This little boy is so bright.  He can not be missed when he walks in to a room.
I love you my sweet Edward Forrest Barnes.
Happy 1/2 birthday!
