I know that I say “I can’t believe he’s…” every year, but I really, really mean it! I seriously have no clue how my baby got to be five years old today! But he did!
He is getting skinny, we are looking into kindergartens- its happening! He’s growing up!
And I know that I will look back on this post some day and he will look so LITTLE! Waaah! Stop the madness!
For the record, my first conversation with 5 year old Joseph went like this, (climbing into bed with Samuel and me at 6:40 am)
“Good morning Joseph! Happy Birthday!”
“Mama? Do you think that caperpillars (Caterpillars) curl into a ball because they are afraid of humans, to protect themselves from the rain, or just to roll around and have some fun!” With a little giggle at that last part.
I said all of the above! Because I would really like my baby to picture caterpillars rolling around and having fun for one more year.
Happy Birthday to my sweet boy!
You have such a kind, thoughtful heart and spirit. Not always towards Isaac(!!!), but definitely towards your Dada and me, and now to little Samuel too! You are so sweet and gentle with him- you have completely exceeded my expectations of what a great big brother you would be!
I love you and your quirkiness, your intelligence, and your challenges. You have stretched me to be such a much better person by making me a mother!
