Five years can seem a lifetime or a second depending on the situation. Five years of waiting for something would be a nightmare for me with little patience, but five years of caring for someone and watching them grow can seem like time is at double speed. My sweet and funny little boy is five years old today.
|Isn't that the sweetest face? I was in love immediately.|
|18 months. Love this boy!|
|His 2nd birthday with his train cake. He asked for this cake 2 years in a row!!|
I am truly blessed in all areas of my life, but when he says "I'm so glad I get to be your son," I know that God has sent a blessing to me that I will ever be grateful for.

Happy Birthday to my FAVORITEST boy in the whole world!!!
|Christmas 2010--not scared one bit!|
Parenting is one of my greatest creative projects and he is a product of it. I am so glad it's an unending one, because each day I spend with him makes me that much more happy.
P.S. The last two photos are by my friend Amanda. If you live anywhere in North Central Florida and are looking for a children's photographer, I would HIGHLY recommend her. She is amazing and loves what she does. She is our go-to gal when someone besides me is behind the lens!
