Also, can we pause for a moment and say SIX out loud and really slowly. S-I-X. How do I have a six year old? Thanks to Facebook and sharing memories from years past now, I got several reminders of those first moments that we had our Tommy with us. Those eight days he spent in the NICU, his tiny body covered in tubes and IV's. Getting to bring him home and what an amazing baby he was. And my precious baby is my six year old son now.
In ten years, he will be driving. Oh, lawd.
His birthday kicked off with a small pizza party with some friends after church the Sunday before. I made cupcakes (with Star Wars wrappers of course).
He woke up to Star Wars toys from us and then we were off to breakfast.
We met Oma and Opa for donuts where he got to open MORE Star Wars toys.
Seriously, the dude owns all the Star Wars things ever.
I'm raising him right.
All in all, it was a great day. We enjoyed being together as a family and celebrating our boy who keeps getting bigger and older and smarter.
Our Tommy is one of the sweetest and kindest hearts you will ever meet. He is incredibly smart, curious and inquisitive. He is logical and matter-of-fact and sees things very black and white, right or wrong. Star Wars reigns supreme in his interests, but he also enjoys reading, playing Legos and listening to music. He still invites us to play (usually saber fighting) and wants to snuggle and talk with me before bedtime. He is an incredible kid, and I get to be his mama.
Happy Birthday to my big boy. I love you so, so very much.
