Bottomless birthday

So my son turned 5 years old on December 29th. We celebrated Isaiah two different nights! He has SO many people that love him and want to be apart of his life. He walked downstairs the morning of his birthday and asked if he looked 5 years old now.. He said he expected to wake up a lot bigger.. :)
These past 5 years he has done the following:

  • Taught himself how to put in DVD's and press play.
  • Memorized and sung all of mommy's adult hit songs.
  • Gave his last bit of change to a homeless guy on the side of the street.
  • Became more and more picky.. I thought this was supposed to do the opposite?
  • Share.
  • Talk back like a teenager already.
  • Tie his shoes in 50 tight knots.
  • Get his sister out of her crib in the morning without hurting her or waking up mommy:)
  • Makes his own peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
  • Negotiate.
  • Doesn't HAVE to sleep with his "mimi" (his blanket) anymore.
  • Takes care of his mommy when she is sad by going and getting her ice water and a cracker.
  • Random kisses.
  • Takes care of London and her baby dolls.

I am so proud of this little guy. It seems like yesterday I was just barely giving birth to him.. He is the best brother, son, grandson, cousin, nephew, and friend. He is so sensitive and really compassionate. I'm lucky to be his mom.
