Happy Birthday!

Wishing Garrett a very Happy 6th Birthday today! He has been playing the "it's my birthday" card all week. We have heard things like "Can I have another Otter Pop because it is almost my birthday"? "Can I go play out front because it is almost my birthday"? Can I have this toy because it is almost my birthday"? Well today is the day and he will get away with it all because it is HIS birthday! Here are a few fun facts about the birthday boy.

- He just recently completed kindergarten and is so excited to go to 1st grade. The thought of so many opportunities to play on the playground is mind blowing to him.

- He recently informed us that he would like to be called Kyle. He says he likes it better than Garrett. Kyle is his middle name.

- He played Little League baseball for the 1st time this Spring and was a super star. This boy was all over the field making plays even when it wasn't his position to be playing for the inning.

- I am listening to him call the wiffle ball game(much to his brothers demise)that is happening in the front yard through the front window. He LOVES baseball.

- He gives me a kiss and a hug each night before going to bed. He is adamant that that kiss be on the lips :-).

- He has the cutest little head of blonde hair. He is the only one who has stayed light. When I am out with all four boys, I am always asked 1). if they are all mine and 2). even the blonde one?

- He is a BIG helper. He is always quick to ask if I need help with anything. I love that about him...even when it is more help that I want :-)!

- He is telling everyone that he is 6 1/2 today. He went from 6 to 6 1/2 in a matter of seconds.

- This boy goes through shoes like they are going out of style. You can tell how hard he plays just by looking at his shoes.

- I can't celebrate his Birthday w/out remembering that Ronald Reagan's funeral was the day Garrett made his way into the world. Total random fact, I know. After I give birth, I am always ready to go right home. Instead, I got to watch hours of that funeral procession while snuggling my new baby boy.

Wishing Garrett a very Happy Birthday. We are thankful for the wonderful addition he has been to our family. Happy Birthday, buddy!
