Happy Birthday LittleMan!

The time is flying by so fast, I can't believe it has been 6 years already! You have grown so much, many changes are made right before my eyes.

We had a bit of a rough start, you came 3 weeks early, though were huge, and had problems with food allergies right from the start. Add on ear infections and asthma stuff, RSV, pneumonia, many trips to the doctor, very little sleep. But you always had a smile on your face, such a content little boy. Though true to the stereotypes, you have quite a redhead temper!

My camera decided to die today, of course, so you'll have to make due with old photos and hopefully I can get the pictures off the memory card and maybe kick my camera back into submission.

Turning 3, what I get cake?

Turning 4.

And turning 5, he didn't like the smell of the smoke after he blew out the candles, lol.

You have learned to read, add two digit numbers, and sometimes you can even count passed 20. One of my favorite things about homeschooling this year is seeing each kids personality and what they enjoy. LittleMan loves to do math, he can't count very well still and doesn't know all of his letters but he can read. It seems he doesn't like to do anything easy, let's jump on in to the hard stuff and get going!

I look forward to another fun filled year with you, little guy, I love you.

I remember one day the poor guy was just miserable from a fever, infections, and whatever else he was dealing with at the time. But he just looked up at us with his tired eyes and put a smile right one. It was enough to melt the heart.

But maybe Iron Man will let him win every once in a while.

Ah well, if you were ever a They Might Be Giants Fan you'll remember Triangle Man always won.
