Today is a big day in our house! Our big guy turned 6 years old and our mission was to have fun. After school his buddy came with us to the Butterfly house and then we came home for lunch and play. After school Capri came over to play before everyone else came over for the party. He went to bed passed his bedtime and was so tired from all the playing today. The perfect day for a 6 year old.
We had Seahawks cake, napkins, green and blue everything. He loved it.
I was telling Jeff last night- 6 years ago we were in the hospital after a long couple of days of labor anxiously awaiting the arrival of this little guy that would change our lives so drastically. It feels like it was last week and forever ago all at the same time. It has been so fun/challenging/exciting/emotional watching him grow up and he is only 6. I can't imagine what the next 6 will be like. He is such a good little boy. He can be so sweet and tender with his grandparents- giving them an extra squeeze and spending a few extra minutes with them to tell them he loves them. He can be so sweet and tender with his sweet little cousins- Greta, Sully and Jace- taking a few minutes to play with them and making them giggle. He can be so sweet and tender with Anna- when I watch them when they don't know I am and he has his arm around her making sure she is safe. Also, when they go off and play together and they get along so well (only sometimes). He can also be so cool and confident playing with his other cousins, aunts and uncles. So cool and confident when he is playing sports with his teammates and neighbors. So cool and confident with his school friends. He can also be a total typical boy- laughing hysterically when he farts and burps. UGH. But I love this kid. He seems to have the perfect balance and is taking my advice and (working on) listening when it really does matter. Of course, his dad is his best pal at the moment.
6 years ago within this hour the Dr placed this tiny baby boy into my arms and he has amazed me everyday since. I love you, buddy.
