Half a dozen years

My baby is six today. This child brings so much joy to our family, and I am grateful every single day for his smile, his humor, his giggles, his freckles, his energy, his sweetness.

He is so precious to me.

He's always good for a laugh.

Skinned knees and elbows are part of his every day wardrobe. "Play hard of Go Home." That's his motto.

All the girls have crushes on him. What can I say? Chicks dig freckles...

I’m constantly wishing I could freeze time with this kid, and yet each new season brings out a new aspect of his personality that is so much fun. I can’t wait to see what he becomes in the future.
