Birthday Boy

I am taking today and tomorrow off to celebrate this little guy’s 5th birthday…

He turned 5 today (although he acts like he is 40) and we celebrated as a family.

Tomorrow? A party with 30 kids. Yes, I am nutso. I promise to share photos of all the goodies we made.

In the meantime, I am off to snuggle with this little guy. Love him so. Happy weekend.

  14. Hi Jennifer! wow…I remember being home as a new mom at 18 of a beautiful baby boy and having a husband who was serving in the Navy and at the time of my baby’s birth, Dad was in Desert Shield and I didn’t know if he would come home to see our beautiful baby boy God blessed us with….I sent him pics of us and him and prayed he would come home….almost 5 months after the birth, Thanks God dad came home and the war broke out…this was 20 years ago. My son will be 21 in July! They do grow up fast, he’s in his last year of college and I miss him so much…when I do miss him a lot I cry and remember when I used to comfort him by having him fall asleep on my chest like a baby monkey…lol..he was a skinny baby with long arms and legs…I love him so much!! Happy Birthday Colin…make your day a special one for mom to remember ok!! God Bless you and yours Jennifer!

    xoxo Jules:)

  15. Happy Birthday Colin!! What a sweetheart, and I know exactly what you mean when you say you love him so much. Sometimes makes you just want to smile and cry at the same time how much you can love your child, huh? What a beautiful thing. He is really a cutie too!!

    Enjoy the age of 5 now and snuggle as much as you can…next thing you know they will be 16 and nearly 6 ft tall like my son. LOL But he still loves his Mom even though Im onlyu 4’10” tall! He just leans down to kiss me now.

    *Hugs*
