No longer a preschooler …

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.

5 Years of Ethan

  4. Cool collage! Well, it’s all over, how did it go? What day does he actually start, is he going back to preschool for his party, or will Thursday be his last day???

  5. What a fabulous collage Hannah. He’ll just love having this is future years. And what a fantastic week it’s going to be for him with multiple parties. I won’t forget turning five in a hurry (and probably neither will you)
