My baby is 5!

How sad....time sure flies I never thought I would have a 5 year old so quickly. It seems like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital for the first time, watching him take his first steps, saying his first words, or trying to get him potty trained, but now he is a big 5 year old that has grown too fast before our eyes. John has grown up so much this last year, 4 to 5 was such a HUGE maturing stage in his life! He is our goofy silly boy who loves attention and he makes us laugh so much, but he also makes us cry. He is just growing up too fast-I was actually kind of sad(& proud) the other day when we were working on reading and he said he didn't want my help anymore, "I can do it by myself"...he is a big boy now!

Here is a 5 year old pic I took of him a few weeks ago and I will post more later, especially of his birthday party at Monkey Joe's yesterday, which was a blast!! I just wanted to share his AWESOME cake made by Amanda Dunn(her link is on the right side-SWEETPIES's). John loved it so much he and his buddy Caz snuck into the party room and took a chunk out of the side of the cake and ate all the parts to it! Thanks to all our family and friends who came to share this monumental birthday with us! Happy Birthday John John....We love you!
