By the way … Happy St. Patricks Day! Years ago at this point in the day we were knee deep in beer and dancing away to fancy jigs giggling and trying to not puke all in one breath. Fast forward to today and we are at home, with colds, sipping away on tea and blowing our noses every 5 minutes. The only green in our day is our boogers. Ha. But we do have some fantastic food cooking away in our oven at this moment – and I’ll share that all with you tomorrow along with a project I tackled this morning! Now it is time to switch to wine and chat about Brody who recently turned 6!!
I think I just fainted/pooped my pants/cried and gasped all at the same time. Where in the world did my baby go?? I mean, really. What feels like just yesterday I was a terrified 22 year old girl, in love, finding out Dan and I were expecting.
Insert the first sentence I said here, only in past tense. I felt all those very same things that I do now realizing that my first born is a 6 year old boy. I have watched this sweet boy go from a 8lb 7oz bald headed babe with giant eyeballs, grow into a chubby lovable toddler, and now a sweet-sensitive-light up any room he walks in boy.
Gosh guys. This really makes my head spin.
His birthday party was a house packed full of people who adore him and we could not be more grateful to celebrate this kid with people we love so much.
Nearly every ounce of baby pudge has completely vanished. His big blue eyes have stayed large and in charge. And, this boys heart seems to grow by the day.
Playful. Sincere. Athletic. Funny. He is one of a kind.
One whom Dan and I are so lucky to call our very own.
One of two best DIY’s we’ve made yet 🙂
