Letter to My Son – Happy 5th Birthday!

by Cate on August 2, 2007

In five short years, Nicholas has gone from this:

To this:

The first picture was taken when he was baptised. I love those pants peeking out from his baptismal gown, affectionately called “party pants.” And today he turned 5, with the first words out of his mouth this morning, “Is TODAY my birthday?”

LIKES: Anything on the Disney channel, hanging out with Eli and The Girlfriend, swimming in the lake, shopping (believe it or not, even Staples is a thrill for him), going to the park and playground, going on vacation and Cinderella

DISLIKES: Bedtime, putting garbage actually IN the garbage can, green vegetables, sitting still … he’s a pretty happy-go-lucky kid

Happy Birthday, Nicholas!

A year ago today … Nicholas turns 4.
Two years ago today … Nicholas turns 3.

Happy Birthday, Nicholas!!!! Enjoy being five, it never comes again! :-) It’s amazing how much they change as they grow isn’t it? But it’s also fun to see what stays the same…his ears are the same shape from baby to now! I LOVE it!

Happy Belated Fifth Birthday Nicholas! Hope you had a really fun day. Try the “it’s my birthday month rule.” We all do it in our house and see how long we can get away with it. It starts from the day of your birthday and continues until the end of that month. Not good if your b’day is near the end of the month!

Thanks for visiting my blog Cate.

Happy belated bday! Are you a Leo? I am too!

Next time, tell Mom to come to FL and take you to DisneyWorld – we go every few weeks. My kids LOVE it!

Happy birthday, from me…and Alex! Just a few months older; if we ever get together, I have a feeling those two would totally hit it off.

And hey…Alex loves to go shopping, too!!
