FIVE?



I think this week I'm going to have to dish out some sap. You see, my sweet little boy is going to be turning five in a few days. FIVE! I don't know why five seems like a big birthday to me - perhaps it is leaving the wee life behind. No more baby or toddler or little person. This is moving into big kid. Footprints winding to here, and pointing in the next direction.



It is so amazing to see how he has grown from that super spunky baby and toddler to this smart, interesting, loving, dynamic (and yes, still spunky) kid. He is a sweet boy and I love him so much - I appreciate every day he has been in my life. *gulp* My little guy is turning FIVE!

Love the sweet chubby baby pictures and he does have that same smile. His dark eyes amaze me every time. It's been so much fun getting to "know" your family.

Happy Birth Day to the yung un' and Mama!

Happy birthday wishes to the big boy who is five!!
Of course he has changed, but I can still see the same adorable features from his baby photo.
Have a wonderful celebration.
(P.S. I like your new profile photo- especially the gorgeous gray hair- I'm letting mine come in too!)

I always think looking at pics of baby's is SO amazing, because right there, right before us is the EXACT replica of who they are going to be. Just different. So we realize they'll change and look different but we just don't know HOW. Wierd, huh? I was looking at my daughter from a certain angle the other day and she looked EXACTLY like she did as a 2 year old. And I remember thinking "I wonder what she'll look like when she's 10."

Beautiful pictures. Your son is amazingly beautiful with those incredible eyes and that incredible hair. Hug him close! Get all sappy. It's wonderful to watch.

BTW, I like your new profile pic!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Five kind of staggered me too...it just doesn't seem possible to connect the teeny tiny baby and the big, smart boy, does it?

Emilie said...

Happy birthday to your sweet boy! You do such an excellent job describing their personalities. I feel like I know them both!

Karen said...

Isn't just amazing how they can seem to change so much and then you look at the baby picture and see them plain and true?
