Five

My poor little man. Your birthday has thus far, been not very festive. You came down with an awful virus a few days ago and have been miserable and fevered ever since. But a shot of Ibuprofen with a Tylenol chaser seems to give you a few hours reprieve, and your brand new light saber, complete with lights, sounds and vibrations, went a long way to restoring your good cheer today.

Jamie you are a joy to your Father and me. There isn't a person alive that is not utterly charmed by your personality. The fact that you're also adorably cute doesn't hurt either.

I would never ever say that I didn't want to have a boy, but I was uncertain how to raise one. Since I am, obviously, not a boy I wasn't sure I could relate to a boy-child. But I am delighted to say that from the moment you were born and I inspected all ten of your fingers and ten of your toes, and held your hand, tiny beyond all belief, in the NICU, I have been completely besotted with you.


























































Happy Birthday Boogie-Boy! Try not to get big too fast okay?

Happy Birthday to a real cutie! And, Happy Birthday to his mom! Enjoy it all! These are such happy times, milestone moments....! Celebrate and dance and eat cake!
Sadly, time flies way to fast as far as I am concerned. I say this as I wonder how I managed to be mom to a girl *this* close to graduating from high school and a boy who is working on his PHD. You're giving *this kid*--the one who plays with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and can't put his own socks on--a PhD? Isn't my little girl just learning her alphabet? How can she go off to college?
Ah, yes, they grow and learn and keep on doing it....all the while breaking their mother's heart to pieces as they go! But, it's all good...
Hope the drugs help him!

MB, I want to smooch your 5 year old! And maybe pinch his cheeks like a seldom-seen old aunt. So adorable, so five!
