My baby turns FIVE tomorrow!
Today I feel quite pensive, reflecting back on the last 5 years. I’ve watched Ethan grow from a little baby into the most amazing, smart and funny boy.
I love Ethan’s personality. But the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree: he’s just like me. The two of us are so similar, in both looks and personality. A fact that is reinforced by my own parents who can remember exactly what I was like as a little girl. Constantly talking, always asking questions, curious, addicted to books, contrary, smart, determined. Hmm, sounds like somebody else I know …
And that somebody is turning 5!
So tomorrow we start to celebrate.
1) Tomorrow morning – presents before church. His present from us is a trampoline. Both the kids are going to jump out of their skins when they see it.
2) Tomorrow afternoon – Par-tay at Chipmunks. Three birthday boys, 3 cakes, 25 kids. Yeah!
3) Monday – Kindy party. Ethan and I bought gifts for all the kindy kids this morning, and I reckon ours are the best ones yet!
4) Thursday – Preschool party. Birthday cakes are not allowed at Kindy (meanies!), but are *welcomed* at Preschool.
It’s gonna be a fun week!
I’ve made a photo collage using pictures of Ethan from the past 5 years. I wanted to do a slide show, but the photos from his first 2 years of life are
crap not that great. We didn’t own a digital camera until 2004. Hopefully the collage disguises some of those quality issues.
