Today is Jared's birthday.
I can't believe he's 5! It was just yesterday when he was born! At home. With a midwife and doula. And a million and 6 hours of hard labor... It was brutal. He was almost 10 lbs too!
Really, this is what happened yesterday. His Sabbath School class celebrated his birthday with a fake cake and real candles. Super cute! (I got his little outfit at Sam's Club for $4! His brothers got similar ones. Score!)
Today we took Jared and the rest of the family out to breakfast. We also shopped for his present, a fish tank, but the lady at PetCo said we shouldn't get fish cuz the tank had to be set up for like a week first. Stink!!! Why didn't we think of that!
We grilled veggies and veggie burgers, the first of the season. It tasted like summer!
We played together. Me thinking of the chubby happy baby who is now the adorable 5-year-old. Seriously, why do I want to cry?
We had planned to take Jared out for dessert, but his big brother didn't feel good, so we got ice cream at the store and brought it home. Candles and birthday songs made it perfectly wonderful for the birthday boy! He sure looks serious though, doesn't he?
I love you Jared, and I'm so glad you're mine, at least for a few more years!
