Today we are 5 years old and 28 years old

Today is a special day in the T house. Today is my birthday, AND today is also MAT'S birthday, his 5th. Yes folks that's right 5 years ago this Moma labored on her birthday and got the greatest gift one could ever ask for, a healthy baby.

He has been an adventure from the start. From the delivery 7 days after his due date, to my 8 hour labor, to his 8 pound 14 ounce birth weight, to his sleeping for no more than 2 hours at a time for the first 15 months, to his walking at 9 months, to his locking me out in the rain with the deadbolt at 20 months, to his baby powdering of the living room at Christmas time to make it "snow" indoors, to his becoming a big brother and wearing it so well, to the virtual loss of my own birthday because his is more important to me than my own, to his starting at a new pre-school TODAY, to his turning 5 today, it is always an adventure and I wouldn't have it any other way.

To my first born son, Happy 5th Birthday MAT, may the adventures continue forever more. And may you learn to use your evil powers for good, you crafty crafty little evil genius you. Your Moma loves you.

Oh and I turned 28 today, yay...

    I had totally forgotten about the fact that it was RAINING when he locked you out :-)
