Hey, Guess What?

I’m FIVE years old today!!  Can you believe it?  Mommy can’t. She’s been staring at me all week long, wondering how it has been FIVE years since I popped out of her belly.

So, yup, I’m FIVE.
Today. 
I’ve been counting the days since Monday. Every morning checking the calendar and marking one more day off. Today couldn’t come fast enough.

Monkey Facts:

I love sports. Seriously love them. I know how to read football and baseball scoreboards and can tell you what each number means and why its up there.
I practice my soccer skills almost daily. Although a pregnant mommy does not make the best opponent.
I can count way past a hundred.
I can do simple math facts and even harder ones (if they we’re talking about touchdowns.)
I don’t really like to write letters, but I can write my name and simple words.
I am starting to read.
I can tell time on a digital clock.

I  know more rock songs and artists than Mommy, and I can navigate iTunes like an adult.
I like video games.

I use my manners regularly without having to be prompted. Others (adults) are usually impressed with this.
I know how to give a good handshake and introduce myself.
I can ride a two wheel bike.
I’m a funny kid. Who loves to joke around.
I love Jesus and remind everyone that they have to read the Bible each night.

   So that is me in a nutshell. Have a great day.

I love you with all of my heart. You are precious child with your daddy’s personality and a heart of gold. This will be a big year for you and I am so excited to wake up each and every morning and see what big things happen for you each day.
You extrapolate the best in others.
You shine without limitation.
You are a gem.
Love you, Love you.
Mommy

Happy Birthday sweet boy!
We love your contagious smile, your easygoing, playful nature. The way light up a room when you enter it. Your inquisitiveness is just perfect for a 5 year old boy! We are so blessed to have you in our family.

We cant wait to celebrate your special day with you
lots of love
