So, you know this little guy?
Well, somehow that was five years ago. Five years already!
and now that little guy is this big guy
I honestly can’t even believe it has been five years since Landon made me a mama. It has been the best five years of my life. He makes me laugh every single day. He is strong-willed and a little bossy. And oh boy, is he smart! He counts to twenty in Spanish and can also say all his colors in Spanish. He is trying to learn how to read now. I beam with pride as I listen to him try to sound out words.
He doesn’t start Kindergarten yet because he missed the cut off date but he’s still a little nervous about that whole going-to-school thing anyway so I think another year will do him good. He has really come out of his shell in the last year. I remember him hiding behind my legs when new people talked to him. Now he just takes off when we go to different parks and he immediately tries to find new friends.
He is caring and gentle and he is SO excited to have a baby sister. He just doesn’t understand why he has to wait so long for her to get here! I know he will be a big helper and seeing him with her is going to be so special. He has always been sensitive and I love that about him.
He still loves to be home with his family more than anything else and that makes me feel good. I feel like he is just a really good kid. An absolute joy to be around.
I think this next year is going to be so amazing and I can’t wait to see all you do and learn in another year.
Happy Birthday to my dear son. Becoming your mama was the turning point in my life. The best turn I’ve ever taken.
