Ethan's Fifth Birthday

Ethan. My baby boy. He just turned five years old - and I wept. I cried because my little sunshine is getting older. He is turning into . . . a boy. When that happens - the need for Mommy becomes less and less. This is natural and how it should be. It just makes me reflect on how truly fast time does go by. Just seems like yesterday my little ET was born. I remember what a sweet natured baby he was. How fun and full of life, yet totally relaxed he was. He still is that way. He almost always has a smile on his face. He is such a sweet young man. I praise the Lord for allowing me to have this little boy in my life. I treasure my conversations with him. He is so gentle with his sisters. He is so respectful and tender hearted towards his father and I.

We went to a miniature golf place for his birthday party. (We don't do parties often - only once in awhile - like every five years or so - we have our reasons) It was beautiful there. It was HOT! Everyone had a great time. Including Ellie, who can be seen in pictures sneaking off eating candy. I ordered a pirate ship cake - it was incredible!

Little boys are wonderful!

Adorable! I love the cake! Ethan is such a wonderful sweet boy. I love to hear his stories. :) Ellie and her love of candy cracks me up too. Seeing that picture of her sneaking off to eat candy reminded me of the post about her accidentally eating a buillon cube, thinking it was chocolate. That made me laugh for quite a while. Tell ET happy birthday for me!
