You are 5!

Dear Blake,

You just turned 5 years old!  You are a whole hand old!  I can’t believe how fast time went, one minute you were born and the next you are 5!  We had a great day of celebrating, you wanted to go bowling and then Aurelios, so we did just that.  Then we went out to eat with Papa and Gigi and TT and uncle Colin and Rory at Olive Garden.  

The next day we celebrated both yours and Owen’s birthdays.  We had a lot of people over and had a big party even with a bounce house.  I told you I was sad because you are growing up and you said “But Mama, I have to, that’s what kids do, they grow up.”

I love you very much, 

Love, 

Mama

Preschool grad!

Dear Blake, 

You recently had your preschool graduation.   I can’t believe you are all done and will be going to kindergarten in the fall.   There was a little concert of songs performed and then you all went back to put on your caps.  You came walking out to the graduation song and waited in line for them to call your name and walk across the stage.  It made me cry to see you go accept your little diploma and graduate!  Then they said “Congrats to the class of…2030!”  That will be here before we know it.  Please stop growing up.  

Library card

Dear Blake,

Over the weekend I took you and Owen to the library and you got your first library card!  You were excited and wrote your own name on the back of the card all by yourself and even got a sticker for it!  Then of course you went and picked out books about garbage trucks and even a garbage truck movie!  I can’t wait to take you back!

Love,

Mama
