Since my last two First Born Friday posts (you can read them HERE and HERE) have been pretty emotional, I thought I would share something a little lighter this Friday. It’s the last Friday that my baby will be 5-years-old!!!! So, here are 5 of my favorite pictures/moments from the last 5 years. (It was really hard to pick one from each year, but I still need to go make decorations for his party, so I made some quick decisions!)
This one is absolutely one of my all time favorites. It’s from about a month after he was born.
Sure it may just have been gas, but this is the first time he ever smiled. Plus, we caught it on camera! We didn’t even have camera phones back then, so this was a pretty big deal.
Next, we have a typical winter in Wisconsin picture in his second year.
Look at that gummy grin! He was well over a year old and still had hardly any teeth. We got him all dressed up, and this was the first time he ever went and played in the snow. He was so bundled up, he could hardly move outside. He sure did love it!
This next picture is right before his 2nd birthday, so I guess it’s still in year 2….but I couldn’t resist.
I had went out to dinner with my friends for my birthday, and my husband dressed him up like this. He then came to the restaurant and had him walk over. My heart just melted.
I was on bed rest with the twins, but he was having so much fun with Grandma and Grandpa in the bath, I had to come in and take a picture.
For those of you who don’t already know, I have a great love for everything Hello Kitty. This picture was from when the twins had just come home from the NICU.
I think we were all a little over-tired and giddy, so my son had put on this shower cap my Mom had given me, and I had to take a picture.
Finally, you get one bonus. This is from my fabulous friend and photographer, Laura Lee. How she got this amazing picture, I’ll never know. He never wants to post for me!
So, there you have it. 5 of my favorite moments from the past 5 years. There are countless others, but now I have to get crafty because someone is turning 6 in a few days.
