Last night you waited up patiently for me to put Bowen to bed and come scratch your back. I know you were tired but you still wanted mommy to snuggle...it took me back to our first night together. I was in labor the whole night before and so tired but you just could not sleep without me holding you. So that's how we spent our first night together...you laying on my chest, right next to my heart.
You were my first born, the one who made me "mommy" and oh, the adventures we've had...you have survived moving 5 times, and becoming a big brother twice over!
You are such a big boy these days! and ALL boy...you love climbing, riding your bike, jumping, playing sports, doing "cool tricks" on your scooter, fighting with guns and swords - I wish I had your energy! But the "poop talk" I could live without ; )
You are a sweet boy too, very affectionate but also mischievous, clever and articulate.
You love pizza, apples, and mini saltines. Your favorite song is "That's not my name" by the TingTings.
You still sleep with your beebees every night and have looked forward becoming a "five year old" since the day you turned four.
Your father and I adore you more than words can express.
Happy Birthday to our five year old Ben!
All my heart,
A lot of people lose her their waistline to pregnancy.
I did too....but forget the belly, check out my feet!
This was 2 days before Ben was born, after a long day at work.
