Today as we snuggle in your bed every night, you look at me with those same eyes and hug me so tight. You bring us so much joy sweet boy. You love so intensely and I know what that feels like. You put every fiber of your being into whatever it is that you are doing, or want to do. We love you and hope that you have a great birthday. You are a blessing!

And now for Birthday festivies....Matey!!
We had a morning party with a few school friends, they were oddly quiet and well behaved for a handful of 4/5 year olds!!!. And then we had family/friends like family party in the afternoon. Whew, what a day, it was great, long, fun, and the smiles and squeals from my little FIVE year old boy made everything worth while!
