Happy Birthday Little Man!!!

It was five years ago today that this dark-haired, beautiful little boy emerged into this world.


It seems like just yesterday that he was a tiny two year old. A few of my friends’ children turned five that summer and I remember thinking what a huge turning point that was. Five meant kindergarten, that first real step out into the world, and it seemed so far away at the time. Now here I am with another two year old and my oldest is turning five. He’s not so little anymore…


I am constantly amazed by my firstborn. His joy, curiosity and enthusiasm are contagious. His amazing stories, observations, wonderings and constant chatter mean I never have a moment to not have something to think about. Just now, as he’s sitting next to me on the floor putting his legos together, he blurted out to me, “Mom? Isn’t it funny how some people think it’s morning time, when it’s really night time?” This is what I love about five, because I know there is a story in there somewhere that will come out any minute. I wish I was better at remembering to write them down.

So today I wish the happiest birthday to my own dear Little Man. Thank you for five amazing and happy years. I can’t wait to see what this next year brings to you!

    Beautiful photo.

    Sigh. Then will come the day when he will become Knittyteen. Yikes. I love growing boys, they’ve been so fun. As a kid I always liked the boy toys better than the girl toys – so as the boys grew, I got to play with the boy’s toys and no one could tell me I was playing with the wrong toy! Now I’m teaching one to drive and I lay on the floor and watch hockey with the other one. We also talk music and video games – they like my high school and 80’s music more than a lot of new stuff. Puck and I love to watch American Idol and Amazing Race together. He dreams of traveling and doing all the cool things they get to do on TAR. You have so much to look forward to!

  5. Happy birthday to Little Man! Five is an exciting age to be and it’s a lot of fun for the parents as well. Have fun!

    It’s the size of my five year old that amazes me as much as anything else – her legs are longer than most babies are head to toe!
