My little baby boy turned 5 today. And I feel old!! It wasn't the turning 30 this year. That didn't bother me. (I still feel like I'm about 22, hehe) It's the having a baby who's now 5 and a big one who's going to be 8 (not to mention the 19 and 16 year old step boys). Oh well.
When Tater (yes, his real birth certificate-afied name) woke up and came to give me a hug this morning, I told him that at that exact moment (approximately 6:30 am) 5 years ago, his daddy and I were getting ready to be on our way to the hospital to have him. Grandpa came over to watch big brother who was crying because he wanted to go and "pick out" his little brother. lol!! I showed him the pictures that we took that morning. I was somewhat nice looking because I remembered being in labor with my older one for two days and looking quite frightful in all of my pictures! So I took a hot shower and did my hair and makeup for the second one so that I'd look a little more decent. So I had my big belly pictures out and then all the pictures of everyone who came to the hospital to see him. He absolutely loves to look at his baby pictures. And since I started scrapbooking, it makes it so easy to just open up and go from the start.
So that's the gist of it. He's 5 today. He's excited to be a big boy now. Here are his two cookie cakes. We get two, one for home and one for school, because there's no way there would be enough left over for everyone else if we only got one :))
Mmmmmm. They smell SO good sitting here in my office :) Wonder if he'd notice a few little nibbles off the edge. I can always tell him it came that way, a new scalloped edge style :)) When I called to order them, we decided monster trucks were a good bet because he's into those right now (we've always done horses, or cowboys or cowboy hat/boots, etc.). The lady had no idea there were different monster trucks when I asked if they could do grave digger and cowboy or outlaw. Those are my little guy's favorites. So we decided on grave digger and cowboy, but she didn't know what they looked like, so I just explained grave digger has neon green and bright purple designs and cowboy is black with like a neon blue lettering. I figured whatever she did would be fine, he's 5 and not too picky. And what you see above is what she came up with after looking online. It was great!!! I was so happy and I know he will be too :))
I'll post some more pictures on here when I can after I take some birthday pictures.
