Another Birthday - the big 5

Today is Connor's birthday.
This evening at 7:27 on 7/27 he was born.
The young master turns 5.

When I look back at the pictures it seems like a lifetime ago. So much has happened since then.
And yet it seems that time did a marathon and it was a mere minute ago.

Connor was a surprise. We didn't plan to get pregnant.
But I felt a peace I have never known when I was carrying him and for the first 2 years of his life.

Peace has given way to chaos. But that's OK. That's how it should be.

My boy. My little, quirky, smart, spirited boy.

Today he is 5.

Oh, 5 is a great age in boys! I LOVED when Man-Cub was 5 (I love him at 6, too, but 5 was especially yummy)!

Happy Birthday to your sweet litle man!
