I can not believe you are already 5 years old! How is that possible! It seems like just yesterday, you were my chunky little baby, learning to walk and talk. Now you are 5 and getting ready to start Kindergarten!! We are so proud of you, and the little boy you are becoming. You are so sweet, and are just the best little boy. You have your times of moodiness, but don't we all? You love your friends, and cousins, and love having so many other kids to play with. You are so insightful, and are constantly asking questions. You love to hear about how an engine in a car works, and love to point out all of the fast cars we see while driving around. You even talk about the kind of car you are going to build when you get bigger!
You love going to church, and you listen so well in your class. You love to ride your bike, and play outside. Your trampoline is still a favorite! I think your favorite thing to play with though, is anything with wheels, that you can "drive" around the house. Hot wheels seem to go everywhere with you. Michael, you are the light of our lives, and our world is so much better, because you are in it. We love you so much!
We had such a fun day celebrating you!
You started out the morning by eating a cupcake for breakfast!
Then got all of your Ninja Turtle gear on, and played!
I let you go ahead and open a present before Daddy got home.
You were so excited about your new George! He has quickly become one of your favorite shows to watch!
We had to run some errands, and George came along for the ride. You were so tired, you fell asleep!
You requested ice cream sandwiches as a afternoon snack, and since it's your birthday, that is exactly what you got!
After a snack, we went swimming at Grandma and Papa's house.
When Daddy got home from work, you opened the rest of your presents!
You were so excited about your remote control helicopter!
And about your new Movie, Cars 2!
You and Daddy tried your helicopter out right away!
For dinner, you picked Waffle House! Whatever the birthday boy wants!
And all ready for bed in your new jammies and with your new George!
Happy Birthday Michael!
We love you!
