That's right! My baby woke up bright and early this morning full of sass that he is now five years old. We kept it low key today since we're doing a small celebration tomorrow evening. Aunt Lu and her crew are coming into town from South Carolina and we're going to enjoy all there is about being five years old.
Of course we couldn't let the day go by without some cupcakes to share with friends at school. Did you doubt the color they would be?
My kid has the best teacher in the entire world. He earned an ENTIRE row of birthday stickers today. How cool are those?
What a year my son has had. What a past six months it's been. I feel like we've found the right road to walk on with him and now we're going to find our way. I live for his smiles where his eyes sparkle. I find myself looking at him some times and looking up to grin at God. I am in awe that I special ordered this child. I did! I wanted a brown eye'd dark hair little boy that looks like his Dad. Boy, did I get that. I get to love this little man and call him my own every day. This little man loves me and kisses me before he leaves for school every day.
I may have said it before and I'll say it again.
This kid made my life complete when he was born April 2, 2004.
Happy Birthday, Little Man!!!
