Little Buddy is five! Can you believe it? He is so excited it is his birthday today. He told me when he got up it was his birthday and he could open his Christmas presents today. Ah to be five, you do what you want, when you want and have so much fun learning and playing.
He has been wearing his birthday crown all day. His medical foster mother made him this amazing shirt, just to let everyone know he is five! He wanted a, "Real birthday cake." So that is exactly what he got. He ate cake and opened presents early this afternoon because Mr. 19 is going on a trip and is now flying off to see his girlfriend we wanted him here for the big event.
Little Buddy and I had a chat about being five, it isn't all fun and games, you have to learn to stand up all by yourself for longer that a couple of minutes, you have to learn to write your name and read, and well there is still that potty issue. And maybe we can learn to take more than one step without our canes or walker. Still even with all that responsibility five is pretty special.
Tomorrow is another big day in our lives, it is the anniversary of our adopting Little Buddy, when it all became legal and he really became ours. You can read about his/our story here. This post about Little Buddy is my all time most viewed post as it should be.
Happy Birthday to my sweet, funny, smart and challenging little one. He is the light of my life.
Also a big Happy Birthday to Uncle Don over at my sister Claudia's blog. Uncle Don and Little Buddy share a wonderful day together, how fun is that?
Hope you are all well and have a great weekend. Joining with Amy for Five on Friday because a little one is actually five on Friday.
