5 Years Old...

Monday Justin turned five. I still can hardly believe it. He is turning into such a sweet little boy. I can't find any pictures on here from when he was born. I know that I have some cds with pictures, but these will do. Last week I was coughing and he came into the living room and said, "Mommy, are you okay?" I said, "Yes, Justin. I'm alright." He then says, "Okay. Well God Bless you......and God Bless your heart." That same day he told me that he didn't want to grow up and be a parent. When I asked him why he said, "Because when I'm big like a parent you and Daddy won't be able to pick me up anymore. Because, Mommy, Papa can't pick you up anymore." And how my heart aches when I think of the day when I can't pick him up anymore. I want to cherish and hold onto all the moments that I have. I know some days won't be pretty, but all too soon they will be gone.

Hey Mel! Your kids are adorable! I'm so glad you have a blog and now we can keep track of each other! It sounds like you are a truly happy person and that is just awesome! It's so fun hearing from you every now and then! To answer your question from a while ago, yes David and I are definitely going to have more kids! How can we not when our little Tyson is the cutest, coolest thing we've ever done??
