Happy Birthday Bubby!

This picture was taken 3 years ago. I've always loved how he was holding this present.

It's hard for me to believe my little guy will be headed to Kindergarten in a few short months. It really seems like yesterday you were born, yet today you turn 5!

You make me laugh with your quirky sense of humor.

"I got a box! I've always wanted a box!" you exclaimed last night as you opened some of your gifts. The family was quick to laugh and you were quick to oblige with another one, "Look, tissue paper! I've always wanted tissue paper!"

You are both my baby and my big boy. Often when I tell you to do something you will do it without argument. You hang up your coat and bag every day after school and clean up your room each night before bed.

As my baby, you still want me to lay with you each night and kiss on your soft ears and talk about your day.

I love the way you laugh - Eyes squished closed, grin from ear to ear, full from the belly and very very often.

It makes me proud to watch you interact with the younger boys in the neighborhood and count them as your friends even though some of them can barely form full sentences because of their age. Boys just seem to have that natural ability to get along.

My social butterfly.
My happy guy.
My fun loving playmate.

You are a blast and I love you beyond words.

Happy Birthday, Bubby!

I'm sorry I'm a day late, but happy birthday to your guy!
My "baby" is now 11, and he is still my little man....
I hope you all had a great day.
