fantastic five

My big boy turns 5 tomorrow.  
It's been five years since I learned that my heart was going to walk around outside my body.

I love this little man so much, and I treasure the "one on one" times that I get with him, because that's where he and I really connect.  He was only 16 1/2 months old when I gave him a sister, and just 3 something when we gave him a brother.  

I wish I had more time to give you, my little man. I love you so much, and it made my heart bloom looking back at these photos today. You are such a little bright spark, and a clever little fella. We are so proud of you and love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars above.

I am sitting in the exact spot that I was in when I found out we had a new baby grandson 5 years ago. Baxter, you are precious to us and we love you with all our hearts. Have a wonderful 5th year.

Such a beautiful post and I can only imagine how magical it was going through those photos this morning to make your blog post. I went through all of Macie's baby clothes this morning to pack away as she is now is SIZE TWO clothes. Seriously - when did this happen? When did my little girl grow so quickly?

Happy Birthday Baxter! X
